No-glare daylight viewfinder

by bookindian

I bought one of daylight viewfinders that fits on the screen on my iPod Touch 4 & 5G . . . Why you ask . . .because it’s almost impossible to see the image on the screen in daylight . . . you know like seeing yer ugly mug or the sky or buildings behind you . . . anything and everything but what you be trying to take a picture of . . . WTF?! . . . I mean there should be a high tech viewfinder like the old Leicas used to have before SLRs . . .

Well the $30 USD gizmo that I got from Photojojo a while back got its field test today . . .

In the pic below you can see the control icons on the right side of the eyepiece . . .

What are the rubber bands for?

Well, the viewfinder has a tendency to lose its “grip” on the screen . . . caused by body oil, sweat, dust, etc . . . but no problem I just used the two rubber bands that I snagged off the free-bee newspaper that comes every Wednesday afternoon and bun-gee’d the sucker down . . . makes you look like yer looking through yer camera’s lens OMFG !!

Second problem is the app doesn’t seem to want to work on the iPod 5G . . . on the 4G it works fine.

I enlarged the camera lens port (hole) on an old Griffin camera case so I can use my Photojojo accessory lenses without having to remove the protective sleeve every time I want to get crazy . . .
