About Panasonic DMW-LVF2

The Panasonic External Electronic Viewfinder for DMC-GX1 is an optional viewfinder for the DMC-GX1 Micro 4/3 camera. Just mount this on the camera's hot shoe and you've got a superb 1,440,000-dot equivalent color viewfinder image, with all of the same information that's displayed on the LCD screen. It displays 100% of the image and works particularly well in bright sunlight (always tough on LCD displays). The viewfinder also tilts up 90Deg. to make low-angle shots easier than ever. Because it mounts on the camera's hot shoe, it can't be used with a shoe-mounted flash on the camera.

The Panasonic DMW-LVF2 is commonly used for Everyday, Macro photography, Portraits, Travel and more.The Panasonic DMW-LVF2 is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Enthusiast, Semi-professional among others.The Panasonic DMW-LVF2 is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Panasonic DMW-LVF2: Durable, Easy to use, Lightweight and Reliable

Works well, not too bulky

Turned out to be way better than I expected. The viewfinder is quite light, and doesn't take up too much space. The quality of the screen is a surprise, and I like how much easier it is to steady the camera with the viewfinder in place.

Does what it is supposed to do very well. Clear, easy to use. Best for MACRO and bright day shots.

Woderful,EVF

By

Sharp and clear, this EVF is my second. I use it with a Leica D6 and a Lumix GX1 both of which I bought at ADORAMA...where I buy everything photographic. Efraim Nussbaum, my salesman, is like a family member (one who charges for his services...)

SPECTACULAR FINDER

By

I have 2 of these- 1 for my Leica D-6 and one for my Lumix GX1. This is a huge improvement over the last finder (The LV1-) Which I use on my Leica D-5 and my GF 1. The difference is night and day. The unit is bright and sharp. Like a DSLR finder. I really have no downsides to report. VRR

much needed accesory

By

bright, flips and has a diopter adjustment with a wide range and a dial you can actually turn with your fingers. It's not too big and when mounted my DCM-LX7 still fits in a work shirt pocket. A must have in bright light. a bit of a lag when panning, but not bad enough to be distracting.

Great Option!

By

This electronic view finder is great for my Lumix LX7 on days when sunlight brightness makes difficult to see settings on the rear screen. It tilts 90 degrees and can be put on and off in a flash. It is small, unobtrusive and fits anywhere. I had to wait a few days because it was on backorder, but Adorama shipped it to me as soon as it arrived. They are a great outfit and have great service.

Indispensable accessory

By

I find the LVF2 an indispensable accessory for for Panasonic GX1 and LX7 cameras. I often find it difficult to see details on LCD screen outdoors, but with the LVF2 I have no problem composing and focusing a picture. I also use legacy lenses on the GX1 and find the viewfinder an essential component of the camera system in that case. I wear glasses and have no problem using this viewfinder. I find this viewfinder well worth it's cost and I highly recommend it.

A Good Accessory for the GX1

By

Purchased to go with my Panasonic GX1. The built-in screen on the camera works great, but in strong, direct sunlight can't be seen clearly. This fixes that. 90% of the time I don't need the viewfinder, but when I do, it's really good to have.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Pat S  How do you get it open to attatch to the hot shoe?
RICHARD B  Don't really know what the question is. You remove the cover from the front of the liveview device by sliding it off. This exposes the hot shoe slide and the connector plug. Slide the liveview device onto hot shoe making sure the connector engages the cameras slot. Push the liveview all the way on. OBTW you have to remove the hot shoe cover on the camera first.
Pat S  Thanx, I found it myself, without breaking anything.
Robert R  Does this viewfinder work on the Leica d-lux 6 (an identical camera)?
STEPHEN M  I don't own a Leica D-Lux 6 and have not tried it. I have the DMC-LX7 and it works just fine. I doubt if it would fit since Leica seems to make the plug-in just a little different than the panasonic. About a year and a half ago I was at a Leica dealer and looked at a D-Lux 5 which had a place to plug in the external viewfinder. I had a Panasonic electronic viewfinder with me (DMW-LVF1, I think) and it would not fit because the plug-ins were shaped a little different. So I doubt the Panasonic version would fit. Check around on the internet and see if you can see a clear picture of the plug-ins on both the camera and DMW-LVF2. If you contact either Leica or Panasonic they both will probably indicate they arn't compatible, since they want you to buy Their product.
Robert R  Many thanks!
Shopper  will it work with the lx7 ?
RICHARD B  I have a GX1, however according to Panasonic's website this does work with the LX7.
