Along came Flipbac.

Along came Adorama offering Flipbac, just when I was wondering whether I would spend several hundred to get a right angle view finder for my new Canon 5D Mark II. Flipbac is a fine piece of ingenuity to get those unsual angles without the hassle of a right angle viewfinder change or going on all fours on the floor. I saved a packet and I am so glad that I went for Flipbac. I get not only the low angle shots but also the right-angled views of crowds and people without intruding. I did this in...

Along came Adorama offering Flipbac, just when I was wondering whether I would spend several hundred to get a right angle view finder for my new Canon 5D Mark II. Flipbac is a fine piece of ingenuity to get those unsual angles without the hassle of a right angle viewfinder change or going on all fours on the floor. I saved a packet and I am so glad that I went for Flipbac. I get not only the low angle shots but also the right-angled views of crowds and people without intruding. I did this in Egypt a few weeks back and the spontaneous shots I got were superb. The switch back to normal shooting is just a "flip"! Matches the color of the camera and protects the LCD viewer on the back or the camera. Great piece at a small price.

Not so great after all

I bought this product thinking it would be great for low angle shots, which it was. But after only a few months of use the mirror no longer stays in position, it simply falls straight down. After a little bit of use there isn't enough friction to hold the mirror in place. Great idea, but faulty design.

It Works

By

from Bethlehem, PA  -  Tech Savvy

It's a great screen protector and adheres to the camera easily and stays put. Since it is essentially a mirror you do have to flip it all the way down when not using it for angled shots otherwise, depending on lighting situations, you will get glare from the mirror when shooting. It's a fun little gadget and better than nothing at all if your camera doesn't come with an angled viewfinder;

Great alternative and great service

By

from Florida  -  Tech Savvy

Good alternative to the similar feature on the D5100/5200 if you can live with a mirror image and more comfortable with this solution to see ground level display more easily. Not sure twisting and turning the LCD on the D5100/5200 won't result in premature mechanical failure. Adorama service was commendable. I ordered the wrong size and they replaced it immediately. They have my future business and recommendation to friends.

great for shooting Street and over head

By

from Portland OR  -  Tech Savvy

This little mirror lets you shoot from waist level or overhead. Simple. People think you are staring at you cellphone and texting. On my s95 perfect. Caveat : attaches with 1mm 3M LCD mounting tape which is not reusable. Mine arrived without it and Flipbac sent a replacement -but they are in Canada and it took 2 weeks. Chose your mount once and for all. I gave the replacement to my daughter and mounted with 2mm tape I had.I love it.

Not great

By

from Seattle  -  Tech Savvy

I intended to use this as a cheap waist-level viewfinder for my Nikon D300, but I gave up on it because it's awkward to use since the inverted image is confusing (hard to figure out which way to move the camera to bring the subject into the frame). I gave up on this and bought an electronic viewfinder which is much more flexible and includes a remote shutter release although it was much more expensive.

Interesting item, but unwieldy

By

from Westchester, NY  -  Tech Savvy

I have limited neck movement ability so this is ideal for me to take pictures of ceilings, etc. It does protect the screen well and is easy to operate. It's a little clumsy to use if you want to take a quick photo. Once it's on it is very difficult to remove.

Quality Build, Easy to use, A bit bulky

By

from NW Florida  -  Tech Savvy

I put this on my Canon S95. It was easy to install, and it functions as described. Quality is good. It does add some bulk to the camera, making it difficult to put in and take out of my camera bag. It also catches on the zipper of the bag. One of the things I like about the S95 is the small size, but this product makes it a bit bigger and bulkyier.

NOT SO GOOD AFTER ALL

By

from New York, NY  -  Technically Challenged

was tempted to buy this for my new Nikon P7000. however, was not able to use it because it's not feasible! Until today, I have not used it and wanted to return it to the seller.

I shoot more without using it that with it so it gets in the way.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
GENE T  I added this to my Casio EX-F1 to help take pictures and videos from odd angles. The F1 is a "do-everything" camera, but it's missing a swivel back LCD to be truly versatile (like the one on the older EX-505). The Flipbac is really the only option available to partially make up for the designer's inexcusable oversight.
bev d  Have a Panasonic DMC-ZS8 with a 3" LCD. When outside it is impossible to see what I am taking a picture of. Will this product help? I thought I might need something over the top of the camera to shield it from the sun but I'm not able to find such a product. Any suggestions are very welcome.
CHARLES42 P  I'm afraid this is not quite what you need. According to the daughter that used this device on her camera in sub-Saharan Africa, the device was better suited to protecting the LCD than for improving the ability to read the LCD in bright light. It may be time to upgrade to camera with viewfinder, which seems to work well in bright sun for me. Good luck!
Jesus S  Hi I want to know: After the f lipbac was stick, can it detached later? Thank you.
RONALD B  The direct answer is I do not know, since I haven't attempted to remove it. There is a narrow/small strip of adhesive along the perimeter that holds it in place. I have only used it a couple of times since I purchases it and it works well to keep the screen clean, but you do have to open and close the cover each time you want to look at an image. Hope this is helpful!
