Ghetto LCD Loupe and 7D
Ever have the problem of your nice shiny new DSLR looking too good?
Just two sleeps away from heading to Japan for a month. I was going to take the 5D1 but I got intrigued by DSLR video. I don't plan on taking a lot but some of the stuff out there is just mind blowing.
Mind you the equipment used is for the cinema mind/background. Shoulder mounts, sliding tracks, stedicam/mount, wheeled dollys and even panning tripod heads (yeah I know photographers use that too).
Something very apparent after picking up a T1i or 7D is that the contrast detect autofocus is absolute shit. Panasonic seems to do it right in their m43 products. I've read speculation that Canon doesn't want to eat into their camcorder sales. What about Nikon? I don't think their video AF is any better from what I've read. I've also seen "AF is for amateurs, pros use MF". Good for them...I really do think an expensive kit, even at the Digital Rebel level should have better video AF.
So just how are the "pros" manual focusing? They use the liveview and meticulously mark things with follow focus rigs. How about on the fly? Apparently they use LCD hoods and loupes. Three came up in my search:
Hoodman Hoodloupe (80 bucks + 20 bucks for rubber bands to hold it on
LCDVF - a magnetically retained, non adjustable 2.5x loupe for 180 bucks.
Zacuto Junior Z finder -265 bucks. 2.5x and no dioptre adjustment
Zacuto Z finder Pro for 400 bucks, 2.5x or 3x and dioptre adjustment.
The LCDVF and Zacuto Pro are all highly recommended. Still, 180-400 bucks for a magnifying glass? I looked online and there were a few DIY loupes made from bottles, fittings, cardstock etc. I figured I'd join the crowd and make my own as well. Also I left ordering too late for my trip (without paying crazy freight).
-mitre box and saw
-hand driven drill (handle with bit in it)
-hot glue gun
-2.5x magnifying glass $5.5
-duct tape...~.50 cents?
-brown plastic downspout connector $2.24
-ABS connector tee .57 cents
-clear plastic paper holder (recovered from garbage)
-the plastic display holder my watch sat on in Walmart.
Well, after some sawing, filing, gluing and spilling of my blood I managed to really cheapen the look of the 7D. The view is quite large and MF is not too hard to do although it is a little awkward balancing the camera. There is some distortion at the corners too (pincushion) but it's still quite useable.
When I return to North America I can still make one for about the same price. However it will have diopter adjustment. Might look a bit more respectable too...
Is a manufactured loupe worth it? I think it is when you consider the time taken to work on a DIY project, gather supplies and lower quality of finished product. I might own one in the future. For now this will do.

The colors remind me of Hot Wheels toy cars and tracks. I wish I could have found a better angle.
