Can you see clearly now? You will soon.
The ClearViewer has a lens that lets you put your eye right up to it...like a traditional viewfinder. You see the LCD screen clearly from only 2 inches away. It folds flat against the LCD for storage, keeping the camera nice and compact, yet folds out easily for use. To use the LCD screen without the viewer, just flip it down with a finger and it's out of the way.
Much of the ambient light that would cause reflections or glare on the screen will be blocked by your head being right up to the camera. If there's any glare from the side, it can be blocked easily by your free hand.
A single screw mounts it to the tripod socket, and a coin is all you need to tighten it when you put it on, or to loosen it for removal. When possible, we avoid blocking battery or media doors, however with some cameras it's simply too close to avoid.
If you find this viewer as useful as I do, you probably won't be removing it very often. But if you're just out "snapshooting" and know you won't need the viewer, just loosen the single screw, and store the viewer (using the included storage bag) in a pocket if you'd like. It's small and unobtrusive, and easy to put back on when you need it. (hint: keep it with you. Once you get used to the nice sharp clear view you'll be using it a lot)
It's also great for reviewing photos, to check your focus and all the details,
These viewers are individually manufactured in our shop, and can be made to fit most compact cameras. Be sure to specify your camera make and model when ordering. We make them to order and ship within a few days.
