When attached to the camera's eye coupler (*), the VA-1 allows the photographer to check the viewfinder image in a vertical direction. This facilitates viewfinder checking during low-angle work, such as crouching shots or macro-photography, and upward shots, such as night-sky photography.
(*) Attached using the adapters provided (VA-A1 for E-1, VA-A2 for E-300)
Variable Magnification for Easy Focus Checking
The viewfinder image is shown erect and unreversed. With 1x magnification, the entire image is covered, while 2x magnification provides an expanded view of the central area. The magnification can be selected using a simple one-touch lever. Dioptric correction is possible over a range of -5 to 3m-1. The eye coupler is fitted with a rubber eye cup
Rotating Angle Section for Various Shooting Positions
The angle section can be rotated with clicks at 90-degree intervals. This feature allows the VA-1 to be configured for a wide range of shooting positions.
