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.

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.
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...)
Very useful on sunny days
I use the unit on my GX1 and my Leica D-6
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
this viewfinder completes the LX7
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.
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.
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.
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.
Photographic pocket rockets. This line of posh compacts sports bigger, better sensors with killer image quality. Advanced compact cameras have been embraced by prefessionals as small carry-anywhere alternatives to their big rigs. Read More

When Panasonic unveiled the GF-3 last year, the company seemed to be moving its MILC line towards a more consumer-friendly market, and away from enthusiasts. But the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 proves Panasonic is still making outstanding cameras for a more serious audience who want to take control of t...Read More
