Funny Photo Equipment!

Challenge #4 in the Language Of Light series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
There are situations where you simply have to invent a solution for your photographing needs. Many photographers will attempt to construct or adapt what they require; others will merely try to buy the missing piece and sadly drop their ideas if such a thing isn't readily available. Show us what you have built or adapted to aid you in your photography! Sometimes the „funny“ can also be something genuinely useful – and vice versa. Please observe the Rules, also see the Intro to the Series (click at Laugh@Life above) for additional information, so your entry won't fall off...

I made this viewfinder back in 2004 for my old (and still alive though hibernating) Canon G3. This funny thing really helped me a lot, especially on sunny days. The idea may be useful even today though today cameras' LCDs are too big for a standard 35 mm slide viewer.
