Summary: The Lumix LX5 is a stunningly good camera but this little viewfinder is stunningly bad. The image size is uncomfortably small compared to other cameras with built in viewfinders and the resolution is so poor that it's like looking through a chicken-wire fence!
Summary: it arrived very quickly. it was easy to attach to the camera and also easy to use. I haven't had a chance to try it outside yet because of the weather but it works very well. I'm please I got it as the camera was not very good t use in sunlight...
Summary: I bought the Lumix GF1 and quickly found the screen impossible to see in bright sunlight. This electronic viewfinder solves the problem and has made taking pictures a joy. It also shows settings that are normally displayed on the large screen.
Summary: This viewfinder is identical, apart from badging, to the equivalent Leica viewfinder sold for about £120 more: . It's designed for the LX5, Panasonic's version of this camera. I purchased it for my DLUX 5 and am very happy with its performance.

In full daylight the LCD screen is not the easiest way to focus or compose a shot and as the viewfinder will tilt to vertical - I can now...

Summary: The product corresponds exactly to my expectations . Works correctly with Panasonic Lumix GF2 . I recommend anyone who wants to purchase a product like this. I am quite satisfied with their performance.
Summary: This viewfinder is a must for any serious owner of a Panasonic Lumix GF1. Why the camera was not originally fitted with a viewfinder is a mystery, given that other cameras in the Panasonic range are fitted with viewfinders as a matter of course, as in bright sunny conditions the Camera screen can be...
The DMW-LV1-IE live view-finder is only near to meeting my expectations. It needs further development by Lumix.

Summary: 1. The resolution of this view-finder is not particularly good, especially when zooming-in with the lens control or when tracking a moving object. 2. The size through the view-finder of the object or view being photographed is as expected and is fine. 3.
