Then there's this rather large thing, you have to dial in, and even then, it is likely slightly off. The first few times I couldn’t track anything because as soon as I looked through the viewfinder, I couldn’t find my subject anymore. Although it's more of an advertisement for the PGD Tracker than an unbiased comparison, the vide has some informational value. If your RDS alignment is perfect then you can let the camera use its own pinpoint focus system that has been aligned with it. It folds down to about twice the size of the mini electronic flash included with all high-end Olympus cameras, and uses a cheap CR2032 battery that lasts quite a long time.

Reviews say that you have to pretty much recalibrate each session especially when changing focal length (inc I assume removing/adding MC). Based on the sales pitch, this tool is totally camera agnostic and can be used with anything with a cold shoe.

First it works on any camera type (DSLR, Mirrorless) and focal length as long as the camera has a flash shoe mount. For action and nature photography, a great deal of practice and experience is required before your percentage of successful shots increases.

I'd agree with the comments above though about proper setting up of the EE-1 before shooting, and whilst a tripod or such support probably isn't essential, it does make the job much easier if you can lock the camera down, focus on something at a suitable distance (using single point AF), then adjust the up/down, left/right positioning of the sight to match without fear of the camera moving. Actually, you can get them for slightly over 10€, but I paid 20€ to get one that included a hotshoe to picatinny rail adapter so I can actually mount it on my camera. In Focus priority mode, on the other hand, sometimes the AF won’t lock at all and the camera will fail to take the picture but at least you’ll know something is wrong. I have been considering the Olympus EE-1 Dot Sight for my new M Zuiko100-400mm zoom, because I struggle at 100mm to acquire, let alone track BIF. To be fair Jeff, and very respectfully (as you are undoubtedly talented) a flock of birds is fairly easy without a dot slight, It's when you are tracking a single fast moving bird moving across the sky and you have a second or so to not only find it but to lock focus as well.or 2x converters and shooting birds, I always have the EE-1 mounted and switched on but only use in the above example. this is how I captured this shot, taken among a series of 5 photos where only 1 was out of focus: it is a huge improvement! Doing this with the EE-1 on the camera's flash shoe, however, forces the photographer to hold the camera away from the body, which makes the camera and a telephoto lens awkward to hold, and considerably less steady.

No experience of the Photo gear one but there are quite a lot of others around with very similar designs and less money. g. I tend to switch to dynamic group AF with my Nikons rather than a dynamic single point AF mode I most often use.it is easy to locate and follow the bird because you see the bird with the light target on it as you would see it through a normal 50mm lens (normal vision). The new OLYMPUS EE-1 Dot Sight acts as a framing assistant when attached to any camera with a hot shoe. The adjustments work by rotating or raising the sight and I didn't realize this before I had accidentally pulled a screw loose.

Park Cameras is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, register number 1449928 and act as a credit broker and not a lender. I used it a few times with my Nikon DSLR and 200-500 lens but found that it didn't work as well as I had hoped.If you take a shot of something static, aimed with the red dot, then see where it appears in the shot you have taken. You need a tripod to align the red illuminated target projected on the glass with the AF bracket of your camera equipped with the very lens you intend to use. I have one - it works but the limited range of frame lines is a minor issue as it does give a very useful reference point to start with.
