Product Description
This is a two-piece housing for repurposing the optical viewfinder from a Canon Sure Shot Owl point & shoot 35mm camera.

This is an inexpensive way to add a nice big optical viewfinder while adding almost no weight to your camera.

These Sure Shot models (full list of model names below) came equipped with 35mm lenses.

The framelines correspond to the field of view when using a 35mm lens on a full-frame camera such as a Leica M4, Sony RX1, or when using a ~23mm lens on APS-cameras such as the Fujifilm X-E2.

The Owl is known for having perhaps the largest viewfinder available in any P&S, with 0.68x magnification, and close up marks on the framelines. These cameras can be acquired for a modest price on ebay, making them an excellent choice as a donor camera.

Total weight when assembled 14g, or 0.5oz.

A great big view with almost zero weight!

There are two pieces to the viewfinder housing -- the base with the accessory foot which has slots for the optics, and a top cover. You'll need to order both parts to have a working viewfinder. Order the top cover here.

There are three optical parts to the Sure Shot viewfinder that are removed from the Sure Shot and placed into the housing.

The relevant Canon models are listed below. Each line represents an identical model; the different names are how they were sold in different markets.

Note: the Snappy LX models don't appear to have the close-up marks on the framelines. This is of little consequence as the viewfinder is primarily used for street shooting, not for close-ups.
