Well you can spend a few hours trying to work w Microsoft translator as I did (wasn't easy) and that will save you your bucks, or you can make life easy on yourself and pay a little more but do so in English.on that link they want to have 180 USD for this viewfinder. This is very expensive compared to the original price on the chinese website...
could you please post here the link to the chinese site to order it cheaper? I have a chinese friend and maybe he can help me with this.
Is the veiwfinder working? what are the pro and cons in your view? Is battery life worse with the EVF? Is framing in very bright sunlight now possible? How is it for faster actions? smearing etc.?
How are you liking the EVF ?I just received my Xitek EVF for Sigma via DHL Worldwide Express. That was quick as I ordered it on Sunday 7/20 and today is Monday 7/28. The unit does not come with any batteries and the ones I ordered are due here on Wednesday, so no tryout for me until then . The website states: "the hood can be used Nikon D3100 goggles ..." so I went ahead and ordered a Nikon D3100 diopter for $9.95 US which includes shipping from Adorama via eBay. Hope it works! I will post after I get it up and running.
Hi Michael,How are you liking the EVF ?
I continue to experiment on improving it.
But the adjustable diopter I purchased did not improve things.
In fact, I found w my vision, it only made matters worse.
I tried the one you ordered too.
No help either.
I feel the native resolution is acceptable for most tasks.
So it looks like I stick w what I've got.
It still beats the Hoodman for convenience IMO.
Macro shooters will likely continue to need one though.
Be sure to change to "PAL" from "NTSC".Hi Michael,
I have not had time to shoot with the EVF, but I have looked through it on all three DPM cameras. It is a step above the Hoodman for sure, although it does not show 100% of the screen. The diopter I ordered does not work on the EVF either, but I can see okay without it. Hopefully I will be able to shoot with the EVF this week. I will post my findings when I do.
It is not good for Macro type work.Interested in hearing more about this evf. The Ute mentioned a 640x480 resolution, is that low res enough to manual focus critically?
My use would be for the Quattro, so I think not compatible yet?
I have one of these EVF's coming soon.
I saw online that it uses a 16340 3.7V lithium battery.
In checking on where to get this battery I find some confusion about its size and voltage and recharge or not.
Can you who have this EVF finder tell me what battery you are using and where to get them?
