Default Magnifying eye piece?

Does anyone know of a magnifying eye piece for the Panny FZ38?
I have not heard of it but i am sure someone here will have. I do have trouble seeing a bit so it would help a lot i think.
Anyone know wehre i can get one, serial numbers whatever please?

eysha, seems like that question was asked several times in the past but I never saw a solution for it.

G'day Eysha

Several thoughts ...
presuming that your camera's eyepiece dipotre adjuster has been correctly set for your eyesight [ie- the little, finger-nail-sized wheel alongside the eyepiece itself] then your options are limited to add-on magnifiers

You might like to chase up a "lupe", a small device of 6x or 8x magnification used in the printing industry to very closely examine image quality ~ they cost about $5

You also might like to google "camera viewing magnifiers" and see what you end up with

Regards, Phil
