I bought this to go with my new Pentax K-5, which does not have a variable view LCD. Intended uses were candid shots of people and close to ground nature shots. Of course, the reflected image is upside-down, but that is how is was in the old days of photography. After 2 weeks, just as I was getting used to the mirror, the hinge loosened, making it unsuable because the mirror would not stay fixed, but flopped down. A few days later, the whole thing fell off. End of story. Why buy something that lasts only a few weeks.
Out of the package it is very easy to apply to view finder. It looks like it's part of the camera not an attachment. Excellent protective Screen cover (LCD). With the angle view finder, I find it great for taking pictures where you usually would have to bend down to do so... Also you can take photo's of people without them knowing that you are doing so. Flipbac also have a very good how-to-use web site. Neat.
