Product Description

Product Description: The new VF-4 LCD View Finder is used to magnify the image on your Live View LCD to achieve more accurate focus, color, and exposure especially when operating under bright outdoor lighting. When using our VF-4 view finder the large eye-cup will instantly add stability to hand held video shots. (eyecup can be used for left or right eye). Tired of other viewfinders that fall off from magnetic sticky lcd or snapping frames? The VF-4 LCD Viewfinder attaches to your DSLR camera through a solid metal Quick Release baseplate designed with a non-slip, rubberized platform. You can lock the VF-4 in place when in use, or quickly unlock the VF-4 when not in use. Our quick release baseplate is specially designed to mount directly to Arca Swiss compatible ball heads. Or use any of the 1/4-20 threaded areas to mount your own quick release plates. The brackets on the VF-4 have been re-positioned further from the camera body allowing for better access to your buttons and dials over the previous VF-3 ViewFinder. With its extensive forward, back, horizontal, and vertical adjustments the Carry Speed VF-4 LCD Viewfinder has been designed to fit a variety of cameras from small to large. Carry Speed's 3x magnifying loupe uses high-quality glass optics with a built in diopter to adjust screen focus for those with less than perfect vision. When not in use, the entire loupe can be used as a normal sunshade or detached completely using the baseplate quick release system.The optional Extension Bracket (included in this bundle listing) is available to extend the range of the Carry Speed VF-4 LCD View Finder to fit taller cameras or DSLR camera bodies with an added battery grip. The bracket adds an additional 1.3" (33mm) of height adjustment.Package Includes: (1) Carry Speed LCD ViewFinder VF-4 w/ standard Bracket ($180 dollar value) (1) VF-4 Extension Bracket ($25 dollar Value) (1) Quick Release Baseplate (1) Hex Key

Almost all the other viewfinder magnifiers out there are primarily for Canon and have fit issues on a Nikon. I saw this Carry Speed VF-4 at NAB 2013 on the last day, but they were sold out. They are finally restocked and offered a $50 coupon promotion.

My VF-4 arrived yesterday via registered US mail. I had to sign for it. I was glad I was home or I'd have had to stand in line at the post office which, believe me, is not pleasant.

The VF-4 is exactly what I hoped it to be.

- adjustable -- the mounting brackets allow precise positioning for the D800, but also for a variety of other cameras. Brackets allow a broad range of left/right and up/down adjustment, then can be locked very securely in place with Allen head screws (Allen wrench is supplied.)
- sized right -- you can see the entire D800 LCD screen, yet still easily reach all the control buttons on the camera back
- built-in diopter adjustment and good optics -- the screen is sharp corner to corner
- comfortable, durable eyecup -- the eyepiece becomes an extension of the camera. (See attach user photo.) When you hold it against your face, the camera becomes much more steady, allowing much better handheld video shots.
- built-in eyepiece shutter -- if you inadvertently let the sun shine into the finder, be aware that by design you have a magnifier focusing that sunlight onto the surface of your LCD screen. It can burn a hole in the LCD like a kid burning ants with a magnifying glass on a sunny day. Get in the habit of closing its shutter or flipping it up if you're outside.
- flip-up hinge allows quick direct viewing if desired. In this mode it becomes a sun hood that should allow better viewing in bright sun.

Really a great tool, been using it on my Nikon D5 with the longer attachment. The bottom 1/4 screw broke while attaching it to the bottom of my camera. I never over tighten my gear and think the metal was a bit soft or maybe I just got a bad one. I have the Kamerar matt box and handheld rig and have never had any issues till this point.

The VF-4 LCD viewfinder is just what I needed for my Nikon D7100. It fits very well and makes shooting video in daylight situations a breeze, however the baseplate has a MAJOR FLAW. As I loosened the red set screw which appears to be aluminum or similar lightweight metal it became jammed in the baseplate as if it were cross threaded. The viewfinder was loose enough to slide out but now it will not tighten back due to the jammed screw. The only possible fix, other than a new one, would be to drill out the existing set screw and rethread the hole. Not what I expected or wanted to do. Since their web site is currently down, I have no way to contact them for a replacement base as mine should still be under warranty. I understand things happen but this is a huge inconvenience.

I am using this on a 5D mark III with the Battery Grip installed.

The fit is pretty good considering how it is engineered. The only other options that I could find were to use the kind that clip to a adhesive frame or the Zacuto option which is double the price. There was nothing to fit on my camera with the grip. The extender is JUST barely long enough, but it is right. I am assuming they made it for the 5D with grip considering it is exact.

The frame is loosely set up against the camera body and I wish it were a little sturdier, but it is what it is and it does work well.

When I mount my Sennheiser G3 system in the hotshoe the viewfinder will not fold all the way up and the microphone receiver touches it. It still stays vertical however...

Overall its a good product. I thought about giving it 4 stars, but all things considered it is the best option hands down. I could wish the price would be around $125 and I feel that would be a lot better range for the quality.

Either way, I am happy with it, especially since it was really the only option!!

The product is self seems fine...however the base plate that slides into the base screwed to the bottom of the camera had one screw hole that was bored out too wide for the red knurled screws. I have to wrap the knurled screw in plumber tape in order to get it to hold. I have requested another plate from the seller but got no feedback as of yet. for $160 bucks I would have hoped for better...

I like this Kamerar LCD viewer because it can be installed easily on my Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera with Battery Pack. It really helps to make video outdoors in daylight. I find flipping the viewer into the up position a bit difficult because the latch is too tight.

Did not fit correctly. Even with the short mounting bracket attached, the viewfinder sagged at the top edge of the camera LCD letting light leak in. The overall build was very light and hollow, a little disappointing for the price, but the picture quality through the viewfinder was excellent (minus the light leak).

Personally I love this thing. The feel is solid, its has the best sleek looking machinery compared to all the other cheaper viewfinders on the market (comparing to the ZACUTO as that is the best I've seen construction wise) and everything works flawlessly as designed. HOWEVER, IT IS NOT TOTALLY COMPATIBLE WITH EVERY 3" SCREEN. I am currently a GH4 owner and although it says that it works for the GH4, it kinda does and kinda doesn't. It ALMOST fits perfectly but because of the way the ARCA plate is made, when positioning the unit against the LCD screen, there is no way to lower the base any lower which means the viewfinder is touching and pressing hard against the GH4's actual eyepiece. This is not good as too much pressure and you could damage the eyepiece, the viewfinder, or the mounting thread underneath the camera Also because of this issue light creeps in at the bottom of the from when looking thru the viewfinder...slightly annoying but nothing a little bit of blue tack couldn't fix :) other than those few problems I love this viewfinder and would recommend it to anyone just make sure the dimensions of your camera lineup properly before purchasing
