About Canon EVF-DC1

The Canon EVF-DC1 Electronic Viewfinder is compatible with their PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera. It offers an XGA LCD with a 2.36MP resolution and displays all shooting information found on the camera's LCD screen. Mounted easily on the camera's accessory shoe, the electronic viewfinder features a high eyepoint, a dioptric adjustment range of -3.0 to +1.0 and 90deg. upward tilt capability, helping to enable steady shooting even on an angle.

The camera can be directed to switch automatically between the LCD and the viewfinder with an eyepiece sensor or can be set manually with a dedicated button. Brightness can be set independently from the camera's monitor.

One reason why the Canon EVF-DC1 is popular is because of its Easy to use

I still find viewfinders preferable to viewing a screen, particularly in bright light conditions. This EVF makes the camera much more suitable for outside use.


Makes G1X more usable in bright light


from North Carolina  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I find an EVF essential for mirrorless cameras. Working off a display screen (even a tilted on) is tough in bright light.


Needed for Bright Light situations


from North Carolina  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I'm not a big fan of mirrorless cameras with no viewfinder -- composing with the display results in many missed shots. I consider this EVF a necessity even if relatively expensive.

The G1X II is an awesome companion, I take the thing everywhere, but, it too needs a companion; if there is one add-on to buy for the G1X II, buy this, and a custom grip, and a spare battery (or two), in that order. The good... Excellent resolution for a EVF; I prefer it over the Sony RX100 III's pop-up EVF. Greatly helps with shot composition Assists with bright lightning conditions where the external LCD doesn't cut it (think mid-day outside) Good refresh rate Superior to optical viewfinder (I can say this since I own a 5D III) as you can get your digital readouts, IE peak focusing, and zoom assist overplayed over your composition Makes manual focusing possible in conjunction with peak focusing and zoom assist as I previously mentioned Cons... Price. Although most of us buying a G1X II probably already have a lot invested in photography and could jump for one, with the Sony RX100 III having a built-in pop-up EVF, Canon should either drop the price, or, the next G1X, assuming there is one, should have it either bundled or also have a pop-up EVF. Side note, there is some talk it drains the battery faster, non-sense in my experience. But, I would buy a spare battery whether you bite or not.
