i wear reading glasses, so which is better for focusing, absent of peaking?


thanks!

I have a Marshal and the 720p doesn't bother me at all. I haven't purchased the zacuto yet, but I probably will. On a tripod I have no problem shooting with a jacket over my head and magnifying glasses. (I got over that embarrassment from shooting large format.)
On a shoulder rig it seems Zacuto is the way to go. I suggest doing whatever the newsies here are doing.

A side note for people who don't wear glasses: Is it you or the monitor? I don't wear glasses yet but my minimum focus distance gets longer as I get older. Strong cheap drugstore reading glasses reduce minimum focus length to whatever distance one wants. I expect people who wear glasses know this, but I didn't. With a small monitor I wear reading glasses at the end of my nose. Maybe not the look you're going for, but some sacrifices must be made for the craft.

Don,

we are suffering from Presbyopia.
Sorry, but we are getting that middle age issue most have.

we cannot see stuff close to our eyes and yes, reading lens is required.
in my case, as much as +1.50 which the Z Finder provides coverage for.
The Cavision viewfinder too, but anymore than +2.00, no.

Z finder maybe too sharp

now i can even see the dead/stuck pixels on my canon 5dm2 LCD panel.
without the Z finder, i would not have noticed them.

lucky i do not have any inside the camera.
