Diopter for 700/750

Does anyone know if Hoodman or someone else makes a diopter attachment or anything to improve the quality of the viewfinder on the JVC 700 or 750?

Thanks!

Mike

I saw that Hoodman has an attachment for the LCD, but is there anything to improve the tinyness of the viewfinder eyepiece?


Thanks

What is the problem with the viewfinder as such?

Is it the size or the clarity?

I am considering one of these cameras and loathe poor viewfinders. I really want a camera with a good viewfinder that makes focusing easy.

Both. Trying to get focused is a chore and a half.

The LCD is useless oudoors, and the viewfinder is small and awful.
