LCDVF Versus Neewer LCD VF?

I have a LCDVF but this looks better.

What one do you like better? Also if you have tried both is it worth me buying it? althought the LCDVF is more expensive LOL

This is the GGS model under a different name.
Its worth having just for the +/-3 diopter adjustment, the swing up eyepiece is handy to have as well.

Re: LCDVF Versus Neewer LCD VF?

The GGS model is really excellent. A colleague & I have compared mine side by side with his Zacuto Z-Finder & there is little or no difference in use. The GGS is a flimsier plastic but it is about 1/10 of the price of the Zacuto.

I don't find the swing up eyepiece very useful at all & in fact after dropping my 5DII with a 70-200mm F/2.8L lens attached & the camera landing loupe downwards the hinge broke so I have stuck it with some superglue. It still works fine & if I want to look at the LCD screen directly I just unclip the loupe.

Not really. All a loupe is doing is magnifying the LCD screen which on the 7D is just 640x480. So the pixels get bigger & whether double size pixels or triple size pixels is better is a matter of taste. It doesn't make any more detail out of the pretty low res image.
