My Thoughts:

I'm a long time DSLR Shooter and I had to say that I love to add up accessories to make it a better camera. One of them was a Viewfinder: Being able to shoot through a viewfinder like a 35mm camera, that gave me plenty advantage to work faster and better. However, I didn't like the feature of the sticky frame where you have to attach a frame at the back of the LCD screen. Also considering the fact that I own a 60D, It was nearly impossible to shoot with a viewfinder. Then, Carryspeed came up with a viewfinder around 2011. Where you will be attaching the viewfinder through a 1/4 thread. I loved it but it wasn't perfect. On June 2012, I received an email from Tim that they are working on a new viewfinder and it will be mind blowing. They didn't share any specs or anything at all but I was very excited since I know what carrypseed is capable of. Then they sent me the premodel pics and that gave me the confidence to review. All I have to say about this viewfinder are said in the video, I'm loving it! I bring it everywhere and every crew I work with is jealous! :))
