    Would you get a digital angle finder?

    And which Zigview finder would you prefer:
    Zigview-r: http://www.intro2020.co.uk/pages/zigview3.htm
    Zigview S2: http://www.intro2020.co.uk/pages/zigview6.htm
    S2 probably cost 2x of -r.

    It looks useful especially when using tripods.
    Thinking of getting one of the above 2 but would like to hear some comments from u guys...

    BTW,

    I am selling a close to new zigview
    http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthrea...hlight=zigview

    you can at least VIEW it b4 deciding whether to buy.


    Why do people say it is useless? Are all your shots shot at standing eye level? My personal take after using it is that it is very useful as it allows me to shoot from waist height without squatting. BUT the mounting and dismounting is a hassle and not easy. That is why I decided to sell my s3pro and get an E330 with built in live view.

    Wonder what's the difference between the original Zigview and Zigview-R? The Zigview website says the original Zigview is discontinued...

    Never seen one up close, but it doesn't interest me due to several reasons:

    1) Cost.
    2) It will be quite cumbersome to use in the field, as you'll have to mount or remove it whenever you're going to take shots at different levels.
    3) How often are you really going to take overhead/floor level shots?
    4) The r-version is not foldable? Looks very fragile hanging off your eyepiece mount.
