Canon EVF-DC2

Canon EVF-DC2 in silver (1.020 oz./28.9 g, about $210). It also comes in black. bigger. I got mine at B&H. I'd also get it at Adorama, at Amazon or at Crutchfield.

This ad-free website's biggest source of support is when you use those or any of these links to my personally-approved sources when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Canon does not seal its boxes in any way, so never buy at retail or any other source not on my personally approved list since you'll have no way of knowing if you're missing accessories, getting a defective, damaged, returned, store demo or used item. Buy only from the approved sources I use myself for the best prices, service, return policies and selection. Thanks for helping me help you! Ken.

Introduction

I buy only from these approved sources. I can't vouch for ads below.

This Canon EVF-DC2 is an excellent electronic viewfinder for Canon's EOS-M mirrorless cameras and some better Powershots. Specifically, I reviewed it on the Canon EOS M6 camera body.

 

Compatibility

As of June 2017, the EVF-DC2 works with the:

EOS M3

EOS M6

PowerShot G3 X

PowerShot G1 X Mark II

Performance

It's the sharpest EVF I've ever used because it has superior optics to Sony and Fuji. Specifically, Sony and Fuji have great OLED displays, but their optics often get fuzzy due to iffy diopter adjustments; they get soft in different areas of the finder. This Canon finder is sharp edge to edge, has lots of eye relief, and never gets fuzzy in the center when you adjust the sides to be sharp; it's all sharp!

It has eye-control to swap between it and the rear LCD automatically.

It lacks auto brightness control, so it will be dim in daylight unless you manually increase its brightness in your camera,

It has too much color saturation. It looks great, but what you see in this finder is more saturated than your images, or than you'll see on the camera's rear LCD. Don't use the finder for critical color decisions.

Not only is it sharp, motion is also smooth and live, at least on the EOS M6. It's beautiful!

This isn't garbage offshored to China like LEICA's hideous LEICA EVF-2; this Canon EVF-DC2 is very well made in Japan.

 

Recommendations

If you have a camera with which it's compatible, you have to have one of these. It turns a goofy shoot-at-arm's-length fiasco into a real camera. The image quality in this finder is marvelous!

It comes in black and in silver.
