Re: New Viewfinder for T2i

Good idea, most 5DMKII range from 85 a day + VAT, then I have to add on the cost of batteries, chargers all money, which I am setting aside for the 5DMKIII.

I am hoping that my new Samyang 35 1.4mm will help in low light situations. In all honesty if I could go back a few months would I buy the 5DMKII? My honest opinion would be still be no. I know the t3i will be a great backup camera once the 5DMKIII is released and I won't have the thought of a camera worth 1400 not being used on a regular basis.

Going back to the viewfinder I finally spent around 60 on

The Swi-View CarrySpeed Loupe, cover and Frame along with 3 x Trudeau Twist Jar Openers for my Follow Focus :)

Re: New Viewfinder for T2i

Hi All,

After many hours of research I have finally managed to build a view finder which works with my 600d that does not need any sticky frames and works with a battery grip :)

I ordered a Carry Speed viewfinder from the USA and an additional frame which cost me around 66.
I found that bottom of the frame was just to thick to fit between the grip and the camera so I took it to a local metal workshop and had them grind it down to around 0.5mm and also take a piece out so I can quickly loosen the grip and remove the frame when I want to use the articulated screen.

Please find the pictures attached. I will be adding some foam tomorrow around the frame so if I push too hard on the viewfinder I will not worry about any metal to metal contact.
