Sensor Loupes
« on: March 10, 2013, 02:50:12 PM »
I just received an Opteka. Pricing was reasonable and construction seems OK.

However, the focus distance is fixed and it seems to be focusing just above the sensor. I didn't notice a "For XXX Camera" option when I ordered it.

It helped, it picked up a couple of bigger pieces.

Any user feedback on other sensor loupes?

Thanks

I'd ask opteka, all Canon EOS Cameras have the same 44mm flange distance.  Its possible that they sent you the wrong model, but that seems remote.  If they have a one fits all Loupe for all cameras, the different flange back lengths for different cameras is going to be a issue.  You might be able to devise some sort of a shim that helps.

I'm curious about Sensor Loupes as I've had them in my online shopping carts at least 5 times in the past, only to be chickened out and removed at the last moment before checkout ... so I would rely like to see some feedback from others about sensor loupes i.e are they really useful, worth it etc
