One of the biggest reasons for my moving away from DSLRs has to do with seeing through the diopter, but the DSLRKIT 1.08x-1.60x zoom viewfinder eyepiece magnifier has made me want to give them a genuine second try. If you’ve been a reader of the Phoblographer for many years, you’ll know that I’m legally blind and that my vision has been degrading over the years (both a blessing and a curse in some ways.) This is a big reason why I went to EVFs–because they’re capable of giving me a histogram, a high resolution image in a small area, and other smart previews like white balance and ambient light in the scene. Sony, Fujifilm and a number of others have done a fantastic job with EVFs though at times it’s easy to miss seeing exactly what’s in front of you and not a digital readout of it.
With medium format DSLRs it tends to be much easier; but when you work with full frame and APS-C DSLRs, it’s tougher overall to peer through that little viewfinder. But the DSLRKit Zoom Eyepiece is changing my opinions.
