Waist-level viewer attachment

.. For your camera! What were you thinking?
For the 99% of the camera market that don’t have swivel bodies (Sony 7×7, 828) or swivel LCDs (Canon G6, and others) this might be useful. It looks like a mirror that reflects the LCD display at the back of digital cameras (so DSLRs are out of luck unless you want to review your photos?) Both digitalphotography blogs and engadget have posts about it and comments. It’s for sale in the UK but you could build one yourself if you’re handy at the ol’ DIY.

Canon Angle Finder C is a similar product for EOS SLRs.

Speaking of this ‘attachment’ – still its a bad replacement for a normal swivel LCD – it won’t allow you to swivel the LCD out and turn it around so that you see the LCD from the front of the camera. Now, a system of 2 mirrors will do that, just turned around top down. 🙂

I love the interweb, I have just got a Magnesource 55 Slide Copier,courtesy of your link above. I have been looking for something to copy my 300 slides for a while and this little baby might just be the thing.Thank you.
