One of the things that holds back most D-SLR cameras is the lack of a built-in on-screen viewfinder. We still have to rely on having the camera right up by our face to snap a shot. The Zigview S2 Digital Viewfinder lets you control the shutter and see what your shooting from a distance.
As long as you have a cable that’s long enough, the sky is the limit (if you also have a staircase to heaven.) Thanks to a built-in motion detector, the viewfinder can also catch those cool macro shots before the subject moves too far. Not having the camera right up on your face is a good reason to get one of these. Especially on a sunny day, when you can get that “photographer” tan line. — Andrew Dobrow
