The VF-2 makes a great camera awesome!

Snap Happy, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I love the GXR camera system. My one complaint was not having a viewfinder. The LCD panel alone is just not my cup of tea. I get better camera stabilization and no issues with sun on the LCD when I use a viewfinder. The quality of the VF-2 does not disappoint. The image is crystal clear and contains none of the distortion that I have found on other EVF's. The focus adjustment allows me to take pictures without my glasses.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great Clarity, Lightweight
  • Cons: Expensive

MUST HAVE FOR GRX

  • Excerpt: IF YOU SHOOT OUTSIDE AS MOST OF US DO, THIS IS ONE TOOL NEEDED TO FRAME AND FOCUS IN SUNLIGHT. MY ONLY GRIP IS THE COST AND THE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE.

Great Viewfinder

Tigercat, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I bought this viewfinder for my husband as a gift for his new camera and he was overjoyed with how well this viewfinder works. He said it cuts down the glare tremendously and said he would not have been able to take pictures at the airshow without it. Amazing and great viewfinder would highly recommend this item for your camera.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Better Than the LCD

KenS, Adorama
7 November 2011
  • Excerpt: This is an absolutely necessary accessory if you will be shooting outdoors in bright light. The alternative is the hard-to-see LCD on the back of the camera. Although better than not having a viewfinder at all, this one (& most others like it from what I've read) produces a "video-like" image that is less than perfect. It takes a little getting used to, but is still the best option for accurate composition and evaluation.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Produces Video-like Image
