Default High-tech Monitor Viewer

Here is a picture of my solution to the perennial problem that you can't see the TFT monitor on the camera in anything but dim lighting conditions. The key component (a hand lens) costs 50 pence or cents or less from your local market, and the major part of the sophisticated collapsible casing is, as you can see, from readily renewable sources. I note that commercial solutions cost a lot and involve sticking Velcro on your nice camera.

This one wedges nicely between your face and the camera, leaving one hand free for the shutter release or other control, and the other for button pushing.

Alan, you're a man after my own heart. I came up with practically the same thing. I used a screw out eyepiece from an old pair of binoculars attached to an extention tube(from a toilet paper roll).I use the same "wedge between the eye and camera" method you do.It not only cuts down on the glare but magnifies the screen as well.
