This Seagull fits my Pentax well, works well and feels solid.
Elaine G Victor
The image in the view finder is very bright and clear; although, at this time, I question the usefulness of the 2X setting.
Macdonald Cory
The Seagull finder is much more reasonably priced and the build seems to be of a good quality.

The quality of the Canon Right Angle Finder C is high but the fit was quite loose on my Canon XT and 50D. The metal portion of this finder with the prongs had slightly worn a tiny bit of the top edge of the glass LCD so I decided to look into the Seagull version. The fitting of the Seagull version is plastic so it should not damage glass at all. I also heard the fit was tighter, which I hoped would be safer after I accidentally popped my Canon one off the camera quite easily a few times.

I actually received the newer model of the Seagull that goes up to 2.5 in magnification (there is actually an even newer one providing 3x magnification). The adapters were supposed to be made from a better quality of nylon than the previous versions. Here's my findings:

1. Quality:
The Canon is definitely a higher quality item and it has a heavier feel. The Seagull is much lighter. They both are mainly plastic with a metal barrel that is rotated for focusing. Both the Canon and Seagull fit snugly into their included soft cases. The Seagull appears to be a little snugger fit and may take a bit more fiddling to get it into its case.

2. Fit:
This may vary depending on the camera but I will report on what my experience is with my Canon. The adapter labeled for my Canon 50D was actually too big. I had to use a smaller size (labeled for the Canon Rebel line) that fit too snugly. With the Canon finder, I did not require using an adapter but it attached too loosely to my camera, even though I tried to bend the springs in to make it fit more securely.

The Seagull's adapter had a tighter fit but it was so tight that it was not possible to remove the viewer together with the adapter still attached to it.

After seeing how much a friend liked a similar right-angle finder on his Canon SLR, I wondered if there was anything available for my Pentax *ist 35mm camera. After searching and only finding older right angle finders for much older Pentax models I stumbled on this beauty.

The finder is well constructed; light in weight but does not feel flimsy. Probably most appealing feature for everyone looking at this product is that it appears to be compatible with almost all SLRs, regardless of brand. Adapters allow one to attach the finder to a particular brand of camera. The fit on my Pentax was snug but not so tight that I couldn't take it off without excessive force. Though I have not made much use of the 2x magnification, I believe it would be very helpful in macro work.

The only drawback to this finder is the rather loose feel to the diopter control. The upper portion of the tube rotates to adapt the viewing focus to the user's comfort. The rotation is very fluid, but it almost feels too easy to turn. If the photographer were to orient the camera vertically, for instance, one can swivel the finder also into an upright position. Swiveling the finder, however, can bump the diopter thus throwing it out of focus slightly. This is easily fixed, but one must be aware of it when operating the camera, so be careful!

I highly recommend this right angle finder. It does its job well and costs maybe a third of the price of the comparable Canon version (which, of course, is only available for Canon cameras). It makes photography easier on my back and easy on my wallet!

Hey, this is great for the money....I use it for astronomy, focusing in the dark on tiny star images...so it pays to set it up in daylite, and tape the focus in place...its as good as the brand name one on my Nikon D-80, and much cheaper. got here quick too...good company.

I found this product to be well made and as it seems to me truly universal - at least it fit my Pentax *ist DS (a similar product by another company apparently does not). The only reason that I gave it four, rather than five, stars is that the fit is a littl too tight (although this is better than too loose). I might be able to improve this with a few adjustments, however. The viewfinder is useful for nature photography when using a tripod, especially when the camera lens is pointing upward.

I bought this to use on my Canon XTi to take pictures through my telescopes. It has served that purpose well. It is easy to install and the built in magnification is a big plus in focusing on stars. Construction is very good and the fact that the eyepiece can be rotated is a big plus. Anyone taking pictures through a retractor telescope needs this accessory. I highly recommend it.

This makes getting low to the ground much easier. I use it a lot and find it to be a lifesaver that keeps me from lying in the dirt quite often. It fit my Canon 40D right out of the box, without any other adaptors necessary. The built in magnification is also pretty useful when trying to manually focus on something very small. A good product for a good price - I am very pleased!

I really wanted to like this finder. I take photos from a tripod at low angles sometimes, but not enough to justify the cost of the genuine Nikon. The price of this one and the favorable reviews led me to order it. Unfortunately it didn't work out and I had to return it.

The deal breaker for me was poor optical quality. The very center of the image was fine - I could see clearly and it was adequate for critical focusing. But outside of the center 30% of the image things got really bad, so much that I could never really tell what was in or out of focus in the image. It was so bad that even some of the fine details in the viewfinder data at the bottom became difficult to read. It was actually uncomfortable for my eyes to scan the edges of the viewfinder to get the composition right because of the blurriness that far from the center was so distracting.

The optical effect of this viewfinder reminded me of looking through a cheap telescope. Yes, technically it functions, but it's not something I'd want to use for serious work.
