Third Party Right Angle Finder - China Seagull
Nov 5, 2005

Seagull of China has produced a rip-off right angle finder for the Canon EOS Digital and other cameras. The price is very appealing - but, has anyone used one? If it works well, it is a good buy. However if it doesn't work (i.e.: allow you to accurately focus the camera) it is worst than useless!

I have searched these forums and except for some snide postings about the low grade of English syntax on the Seagull directions, there has been no useful input.

I am just starting (again) in macro photography and could use a right angle finder for either my 10D or 350D or both. If the Seagull is unacceptable, I will need to wait for a bit to get this type of finder.

I definitely DO NOT WANT a LCD viewfinder as I hae found these to be very difficult to 1. focus with and 2. to effectively use in the bright sun.

Can anyone give me some feedback regarding the Seagull finder?
