LCDVF & $2 Lens Caps

Christmas is coming. Are you ready? We will have a few weeks off from photography works. I expect to have some family events during this period and I will shoot some home videos. I'm happy to get the LCD viewfinder (LCDVF) which helps to do follow-focusing. As I'm not a full time video guy, I don't want to spend $400 for a Z-Finder (although it's the best).

After using 5D Mark II to work in this year, I feel very comfortable to shoot video with it. I can choose my own lenses and shoot with very high ISO. No other small Full-HD video camera can compare with it.

The $2 eBay lens caps arrived to replace Canon's original lens caps. Canon's lens cap design is extremely old and nonsense. When hood is on, it's hard to put the caps on lens. Moreover, we won't feel bad to lose $2 lens caps in weddings.



  1. I would like to know what is the lens? And what it's between the Canon and the Rode videomic?
