Am I the ONLY one that didn't realize that the HD2xx series viewfinder is telescopic?

Recently saw a picture of JVC Guru Tim Dashwood with an HD2xx series camera and thought "wonder where he got the viewfinder extender?"

Then I looked closer at my TWO (count 'em - TWO!) HD200's and realized the eyepiece screws loose and telescopes.

Just wondering if I'm the ONLY one that missed this incredibly awesome function.

Oh, that's funny :-). And after reading your article I tried it on my JVC HM700 -- and lo and behold, it did the same thing! After all this time I'd somehow completely missed that...

I guess you don't have the training DVD Shaun!

No worries... it's one of those great little hidden features.

Tim: I DO have the DVD but I missed that part... a little birdie threw the disc in for me... <grin>

BTW, I just shot a two camera live performance video in 24P using your Ultrawide setting and WOW! Worked PERFECTLY! Thanks for ALL your help...

I knew about it, but was keeping it a competitive secret. Now everybody will want to use it . . . or at least have their picture made with it.
