Great for getting candid shots

Matt Anderson, Amazon
30 April 2013
  • Summary: It's a little goofy for sure, but if you want to take shots of people and you don't want them to know you are shooting them then this is a great way to go. Of course, that's really all it does and is otherwise useless.

On the run, forget it

Adel, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: I tried it on my kit lens on my Rebel XT and I am disappointed, when I take a shoot I find that it show the edges of it and a small circle of viewing area beside It rotates with the autofocus and takes a LOT of adjusting to getting used to and a lot of planning. On the run, forget it. You have to really do a lot of adjusting and the focal length where it works is limited.

Bought for Camera Geek Husband

bmoore "bmoore", Amazon
19 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this for my husband, who takes a lot of pictures at large group functions and turns them into slide shows for the closing production. The lens is hard to adjust; the pictures are really warped. The pics are fun for the slide show, but would not depend on this lens for accurate photos...

Works with lenses which do not have a rotating focus.

David Swanson, Amazon
17 April 2011
  • Summary: I have a Nikon D3200. The 18-55mm lens that came with my kit made using this product quite difficult. The entire lens rotates to focus and that makes you have to rest your frame with the periscope lens and that is no easy feat. I just bought a 55-200mm Nikkor lens and it does not rotate to focus. Problem solved. Still have not really found a use for this gadget, but the one time I use it, it will have been worth the price.

A Fun Lens

Bayu Kristianto "baladewa", Amazon
16 April 2011
  • Summary: It is not actually a lens. It is just a round black metal thing with a mirror stuck sideways inside it. The name written on its box is more appropriate: it is a MIRROR ANGLE SCOPE. And remember: its ring is 58 MM! It does not come with any additional step down or step up rings. You have to purchase them yourself. My Sony Alpha 300 has a 55 ring thread, so I bought a 58 MM step up ring, and it works perfectly with this scope.

A great idea with limited lens compatibility.

Kit "Kit Kaplan", Amazon
15 April 2011
  • Summary: I had this on my wish list for a while so was a little disappointed to find it worked on only 52mm and 58mm filter size and tried it on my kit lens on my Rebel XTi. It only works around 50m on a zoom lens otherwise you see the edges of it and a small circle of viewing area. I think it is meant to use on a prime lens but this makes truly clandestine shooting limited. I then got a 62-58mm step-down ring and put it on my new tamron 18-250mm lens.

Fun accessory for the cam...

B. Muller, Amazon
15 April 2011
  • Summary: Works as stated, but it is a little obvious unless quite far away (not exactly a discrete thing). Use with a zoom... Also, because it mounts on the end of a lens (like a filter does), it turns when the lens focuses, so you have to hold the mirror unit when focusing to keep it pointing in the right direction.

works fine - just have to know how to use it

Betty Turner "what can I shoot for you today?", Amazon
14 April 2011
  • Summary: It's a threaded attachment so you can use it on any lens with front threads. You just may need a step-up/step-down ring or two to fit it. It comes with 52 and 58mm set. Some lenses spin when you autofocus. This creates an issue with where you've set this filter (same problem with gradients and polarizers). You either need to autofocus or use the half-fire before you set it. Plenty of the Canon lenses don't front spin when focusing.
