use your camera's LCD even in direct sunlight - and get a new angle on setting up your photos
---

If you're underwhelmed with the LCD size on your digital camera, you can now magnify your viewing area by 2X using the award-winning Xtend-a-View Pro family of LCD viewers... and you can actually see the display in situations where your LCD looks and acts like a mirror!

Xtend-a-View Pro replaces the awkward business of staring at your camera's LCD with a much more camera-like look-through experience. You see exactly the image you're going to capture, through any lenses, filters or other add-ons you may use, and you also avoid the parallax problems that are especially common with close-up work.

Eyeglass wearers, please note: If you wear eyeglasses, the Xtend-a-View products will still work for you. The rubber eyecup can either be removed to allow your glasses to get closer to the viewing end, or you can trim down the eyecup to accomplish the same thing. Additionally, many eyeglass wearers have reported that they can take their eyeglasses off entirely and use the Xtend-a-View with no problem (this doesn't work for everyone).

Xtend-a-View Pro not only provides a 2x magnified view of your LCD, but it also makes it much easier to see in difficult lighting conditions (direct sunlight for example) since it creates a "light box" around the LCD. The unit comes standard with non-skid rubber for one-off use, Velcro for a more permanent attachment, a lanyard for hanging the unit around your neck, and a lanyard mounting block which can be attached to the viewer on any of the four sides, thus eliminating interference with the buttons on the camera. Installing the rubber strips makes it easy to use the viewer in a quick view mode. Instructions are included.

This product magnifies your view of the camera's LCD, makes the LCD image visible even in bright sunlight, and shows you exactly what your camera lens will capture (not always the case with the optical viewfinder, especially when using add-on lenses)
