Ditch that DSLR viewfinder with the Zigview S2

zigview s2It’s one of the sacrifices that must be made to be a full convert to the DSLR ways: losing the live LCD preview. Using a DSLR means looking through the viewfinder, unless you are so talented that you can perfectly place your subjects in the right frame without even looking at a preview. If that is you, then you don’t have to worry about this little gadget, but if you are one of the many who have trouble with that tiny viewfinder, take a look at this. The Zigview S2 attaches onto your DSLR’s viewfinder and uses its own sensor to then display the image onto a fully rotateable 2.5″ LCD screen. Because of the full rotation allowed, this LCD is perfect for those Hail Mary shots where you need to get above that crowd to get the perfect shot. Another nice feature, the S2 includes a cable shutter release so that you don’t have to push that button. This allows you to reduce the amount of vibration the camera has, and your shots will be clearer because of it. For around $450, this device is definitely not for everyone. But if you have the cash and hate that damn viewfinder enough, you might be willing to give the Zigview S2 a try. — Nik Gomez
