"DISPLAYLUPE" BY KAISER




As good as the Leica M view/rangefinder is, at times a more accurate means of viewing the viewfinder image might be advantageous.  In my experience this has definite been the case when doing architectural photography while viewing the display screen in back of the camera.   This can also be the case with close up photography and when using long telephoto lenses.  But the viewfinder screen is relatively small, especially for critical focusing.  A magnifier offers a lot of help in this regard.

For that reason,German camera accessory manufacturer Kaiser is offering their Displaylupe, designed to give a magnified view of the display screen of digital cameras.  Two elastic cords easily attach the magnifier to any camera, including Leica cameras.  It can also be carried with a neck strap and used without attaching it to the camera.  The optics consists of two lens elements in two groups and is made of high quality optical glass with anti-reflective coatings.  The magnifier offers two times magnification and a diopter correction from -5 to +3.  It can be used with digital displays with a diagonal size up to 3.2 inch.

    Pretty much an exspensive LCD-VF?

    1. Not expensive at all. It is just a magnifier, utilizing the existing viewfinder screen in back of the camera. No separate LCD-VF necessary.

    1. No, I haven't. However, I am quite familiar with using a magnifier when using a view camera. This is essentially the same with the added advantage of the magnifier being able to attach to the camera. I would have definitely used one when I was still doing architectural photography, if only it had been available then.
