Excerpt: Just what I needed to aid me in keeping horizons horizontal and clock-towers vertical! I'm surprised my Canon 6D did not come with it, but this inexpensive purchase came with detailed instructions and the tool to keep my greasy fingers off the glass focusing screens as I changed them out. The packaging is perfect to keep the standard screen clean and safe, although I have no intention of returning it to my camera. And, of course, Adorama shipped it real fast.
Excerpt: This is very useful for quickly lining up horizontals and verticals, especially in architectural photography <br />It is a good compositional aid.<br />It is nice and bright, quick and simple to change out.
Excerpt: Canon should put these things in as standard. I put this screen in my old 40D, 50D, and now the 6D. Makes shooting landscapes and overall alignment of horizontals and verticals dead easy. If I did macro work I might prefer the super bright focusing screen, but for general photography I don't think you can beat this one.
Excerpt: It is like you see it when you want to see it.<br />What I mean is, when you need to have straigt pictures it is there. Doing wedding candids or anything other than buildings you see right past <br />the lines.
Excerpt: For an advanced amateur, like me, this is an interesting screen for framing shots, especially under good lighting conditions. I'm cropping less from the images and enhancing quality as a result. Probably not for everyone, but useful to me.
Pros: Easy To Change Screens, Easy To Use, Reliable
Excerpt: The first screen was defective, Adorama took care of the replacement immediately. Today I received the new screen. The box was sealed and packed differently than the first time. Everything was impeccable. I decided to inspect the new screen before proceeding with the removal of the original screen. The screen was flawless, free of dust and ready to be installed.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fits 6d, Great Visual Aid, Simple to install
Excerpt: I'm primarily a wildlife & landscape photographer & being able to align my shots was crucial. Difference between a good but crooked shot & a great shot. Found myself spending more time in post processing trying to make alignment adjustments than what I should. The addition of this grid screen has paid for itself in my first shoot since I bought it. Mainly because i've never been a huge fan of using Live View to get the same effect.
Excerpt: Although a 3 day delivery premium was added to it, the delivery took about five and half days to arrive. As soon as the screen was installed, looked through the viewfinder and there was what appeared to be a glitch on the screen. I removed the screen out from the camera and examined it with a magnifying glass and it was not dirt, it is a mark of some kind or a scratch .
Excerpt: For landscape photography this focusing screen with "Grids" is a must. Was easy to install and works great.<br /><br />My only question is why Canon did not include this with the 5D Mark II!
