A Montior For Cramped Angles by Marc Lacoste

I wanted to highlight Marc Lacoste's great idea for shooting in corners for those of you that don't frequent the flickr discussions.

  1. Why wouldn't a pair of video glasses work as well or better? (small, light weight, portable, etc) There are plenty around these days mostly marketed to the "gaming" crowd. I'm thinking about buying a pair to help better compose shots taken from my pole. I do Pole Aerial Photography (PAP). I need something to use in bright sunlight.

  2. I'm a bit confused here. Looks like you're using a Nikon so are you saying you can get 'live view' from the viewfinder on the monitor? I thought you could only show pictures form the memory card on a video monitor?

  3. If you want Live View, you are limited to the Oly e-300, e-410, e-510 and that new $4k Canon.

  4. I'm not attracted towards video glasses.
    1. There is a wire. I often go out of the room, and at least I go out of the lens FOV. Difficult if I'm tied to the camera.
    2. I care of how I look, I need to show a good apparence to customers. Video glasses are incompatible with that.

  5. Imagine how embarrassing it would be to forget about the cord, walk away, and yank over your expensive equipment.

    Forgot to mention the consumer digicams. I was shocked to find the DSLRs didn't do liveview, and this was just last year.

    My first good camera was a new Nikon FTn so it's not like I was a complete novice either.
