To all gadgeteers...
1

OK, so I've just had a couple of unsuccessful attempts at photographing the sun today (sigh)! I'm using the SD1M+50-500DG OS + 2X converter + 100,000X density filter.

The trouble is that the 2X disables AF on the combo, and I want the larger image.

I wish the SD1M had live view!!!

It's so dim trying to judge the correct focus with this set-up, unlike with the moon at night. So is there a ready-made gadget that I could perhaps slip over the viewfinder and get a magnified view of the image (edge of the sun in this case)? I don't want to re-invent wheels if there's one about.

Thanks, and here's hoping that the next Sigma camera will have live view. (Yes, the Quattros do, but not them.)
