Light Craft Workshop Big Eye HDSLR Viewfinder.

September 11th, 2010 icon / message-square

Here is a Quick Take on the new Light Craft Workshop Big Eye MC Pro LCD Loupe Kit, better know as an LCD viewfinder. The LCW Big Eye is made of Silicone Rubber and at first glance seemed a bit odd. I got used to it pretty quickly. Included with the kit is a big eyecup and sticky back frame. We really dig the frame system for viewfinders; it provides enough support to keep the viewfinder in place while shooting and easily comes off when needed. The additional rubber eyecup is Big and soft for long shooting days. The LCW Big Eye has a really nice 3X optical magnification. The optics is encased in an all-metal housing with a knurled knob adjustment ring. The optics seemed to be very clear and the magnification works well. I was surprised at the overall quality of the viewfinder for the price. The Big Eye Kit Retails for just under $150 from the LCW website.

*** I did not get a chance to mount the viewfinder or try and fog it up yet. I will update here next week with a field report.
