A great adenda. If the canon 550D has a plastic body, how do you attach it? It seems you need a metal body here for the magnets to act.

Most of these 3" viewers are made for 4:3, but I think they also fit for 3:2 (like Canon 550D). There's no big difference.
Of course Digifinder is "cheap" made, but more than € 50 is searobbery. If you look through it, size of display is really big - and NO sun !!!

Even with tiltable display you have to fight against sun. Best of course is LUMIX GH1/G2 with tiltable display and electr. viewer with 1.440.000 pixels.
