Century is proud to bring you an exciting little accessory for users of DV cameras. The Century LCD Magnifier can help alleviate many of the problems associated with today's LCD screens.
For those of us who have trouble figuring out what it is that we're looking at on those tiny LCD screens, the Century LCD Magnifier is the perfect solution. A factor of 1.8-2X magnification will let you see everything you need to from a comfortable distance. No more having to get right up against the screen to frame your shot.
You don't always want to be looking through the eye-piece while you're shooting. That's why you got a camera with an LCD in the first place! But you know that with the small low resolution screens of many popular consumer cameras, finding focus or even just seeing the image can be next to impossible.
The larger image of the LCD Magnifier, its anti-reflective coating, and a 2-inch "neck" all combine to give you a larger, clearer view of the LCD screen free from glare and reflections even in bright (but not direct*) sunlight.
Sturdily constructed out of polystyrene that will stand up to rigorous use, but not mar your camera's finish, the Century LCD Magnifier has been designed by our engineers for ease of use and optimum effectiveness. It has two parts: a mount/sunshade assembly that slips onto the LCD screen and a detachable housing for the magnification optic. The housing is secured by two thumbscrews and can be moved up and down to adjust magnification level or removed completely, allowing it to function as an exceptional sunshade whose 2-inch depth blocks out most of the sun's rays.
Attaching the magnifier to your camera couldn't be easier. Just slide the mount onto the LCD screen on your GL1/GL2, PD150/VX-2000 or JVC GY-DV300 and you're done. If necessary, you can then adjust the magnification housing with a couple turns of the thumbscrews.
Caution: Direct sunlight through magnifier may damage LCD screen.
