    No such thing as stickers for view finders. What you need is the EF-D grid focussing screen. If the shops don't carry them, you can always request Canon to bring it in for you.

    There's no present. There's only the immediate future and the recent past.

    Just FYI, having a grid screen does not necessarily solve your problem.

    Here's the real thing: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...creen_for.html

    I don't know if there's any such thing as a "sticker". I think sticking anything to the focusing screen is a terrible, terrible idea.

    the best way to ensure upright buildings is a spirit level, not a gridline sticker or whatever it's called
