This viewfinder does not get enough praise. I had bought a different viewfinder to help me focus while shooting video, but it didn't fit well, although it said to be universal. Then I stumbled onto the QV-1. Not only it fits well on my Canon 6D, there are several features I absolutely love:

1) The magnetic attaching/detaching part is quite clever and works well. I can quickly detach it from the camera if I don't need it. No knobs, screws, etc. to fumble with. It snaps in tightly. When all done, simply remove the viewfinder to store in the camera bag. With my previous viewfinder I had to remove the base from the camera.

2) The base plate is another great feature if you have a Manfrotto 701 head that takes the 501PL Rapid Connect sliding plate. I have two Manfrotto tripods that take the same plate, so this is great for me to quickly put the camera on the tripods. This is especially useful with my 6D + Manfrotto 561BHDV-1 video monopod for quick setup. The plate could be a little longer, but not a big deal. I keep it connected to my 6D at all times.

3) The view is clear, although it seems to be brighter than what the camera is actually seeing. Again, not a problem for me as I am using it for focusing, not to set lighting.

4) Attractively priced. Of course you can spend few hundred more for other brands.

5) The flip up part is great too if you want to just look at the camera viewfinder directly.

All in all I am very glad I bought this version. I wish I had seen it before buying the other one, now that one just sits. I have already used it about three times and I am very pleased with the results.

Thanks for reading...

Overall the Kamerar QV-1 works as expected and provides a good method for viewing the live view screen in bright light. The QV-1 is easy to attach to the camera and mounts quickly with a small adjustment to the back locking screws to match the placement over the viewer. The field of view is very clear, however adjusting the focus by turning the eye piece is very stiff and takes both hands to turn. The latch used to release the eye piece so it can flip up (see picture) appears to have been previously broken and repaired. Not sure if this was truly a "New" product as advertised.

The baseplate used in the design of the QV-1 is a Manfrotto 501/701 compatible design which if you have a Manfrotto 501/701 head, or a Benro S4 or S6 head it will mount directly replacing the existing baseplate from the tripod head. With other tripod head brands, you will need to attach the baseplate tripod screw to the baseplate provided with the QV-1. The magnetic quick release design built into the baseplate, which allows you to remove the eye piece without removing the baseplate from the camera, works well too. Very stable compared to the rubber band style connections of other designs. Overall it's the Kamerar QV-1 is a great design, but needs more attention to the build quality to ensure that it matches the asking price.

Easily and securely attaches to my Canon 600D camera. It gives a great magnified view of the liveview on my LCD. The diopter seems to work but I almost don't need it for my left eye, which is the one I prefer to use. The magnet is REALLY strong, so that once you attach the top part to the base, you really need to use leverage to separate them. That is good because this will not fall off at all and stays in place once you set it. I curently mainly use this to do solar viewing of the sun in my setup with a white light filter (THIS IS CRITICAL TO USE), Celestron 8" telescope, and Hyperion 8-24 zoom lens. A big problem with solar viewing is that since you are viewing in the direction of the sun, even with a cloth over your head or you hand blocking the sun, there is always some sun light that gets through. With this viewfinder I can even keep my right eye open while looking through my left eye, with nothing over my head, and still do my solar viewing without any distraction from the ambient sun light. I just love this!

WORKS extremely well w Canon EOS5D MKIV. If you watch the video it tells you how to do everything.
One thing to be careful off, ensure that you use the ellen wrench to REALLY tighten the magnetic T slot pin so that
you don't loose it.(I did and its a pain without it). This is one of the select few accessories that works exactly as it should.
You can use with either eye simply by twisting the cup to the other side. The 3X is really ,really magnified, if it is in addition
to the live view 10x. Excellent for focus.

I purchased this viewfinder for my Canon 5dmkiii. One of the biggest reasons I chose this viewfinder was due to the included Manfrotto tripod plate which would have cost $25+ all on its own. This included tripod plate is a much better fit for SLR's than the original, larger Manfrotto stock plate. It stays on my camera 24/7 now without getting in the way! The viewfinder itself is of impressive quality. The magnet that holds the viewfinder to the tripod plate / camera is extremely strong. It only took a few minutes to make the adjustments to have the viewfinder perfectly matched up with my screen. I even later added a "GGS III LCD Screen Protector glass for CANON 5D Mark III" and didn't have to change a thing to ensure the viewfinder still lined up. Overall I'm extremely satisfied. The only Cons so far: Should have included a carrying case. The ring that the strap connects to is loose... Wish I could just remove this.

Materiale di ottima qualità montato sulla mia 6D Canon senza difficoltà qualità delle lenti spettacolare ! Articolo ordinato il venerdì arrivato il lunedì che dire venditore al top oltre L' affidabilità di Amazon ha un sistema di calamità sotto al suo attacco che per farvi capire la sua forza potete mantenere la macchina dal viewfinder

Comodo l'aggancio magnetico e ottima costruzione. Solido e non pesante

Matériel de bonne qualité pour le prix. Correspond à mes attentes.Il s'adapte très bien derrière l'écran LCD de mon Nikon D3100. Je recherchais un viewfinder de la sorte car je ne voulais pas un système qui se colle derrière l'écran afin de ne pas abîmer ce dernier.J'ai cherché pendant des heures sur internet et j'ai fini par trouver la perle rare.Le plus, c'est qu'il fait loupe, que l'on peut le mettre, le retirer très facilement et très rapidement grâce à un aimant surpuissant.
