And so I should, like I waited 4 months for this thing to arrive from Canon.

I have got myself a Canon Angle Finder C.

Yeah..... okay...... so what does it do?

Okay, what you do is place this onto the eyepiece on Canon EOS cameras. It's like a little periscope thing, like you don't have to look through the view finder from behind it, you can look from the top, bottom & sides.

Uses? When you have the camera VERY low to the ground, say on a tripod, because you may wish to get heaps of foreground in the shot, you simply set the shot up from above the camera, no more trying to lay flat on the ground to see.

Focusing. It has an inherent 1.25 magnification factor, and with a flick of a little lever, you get 2.5 times magnification. This helps to achieve good manual focus, when lighting conditions, or distance do not allow auto focus. Also allows you to set Hyper focusing through DOF preview, by using the 2.5 times setting.

Now, all I gotta do is save for my 70 - 200 Canon White Lens......

Didn't the box brownie have a view finder on the top as well. I was just a young boy at the time but it rings a bell. Sounds like Wolfie is bringing the Canon up to Brownie specs

You are correct Ray.

Box Brownies, well, some, had two view finders. Wheel has turned full circle....
