Sony Angle Finder FDA-A1AM on the A900 ?

Unread postby InTheSky » Wed Nov 09, 2011 5:30 pm

Anyone use it on the A900 ?

I wanted to know if it works good or not on the Big viewfinder of the A900.

I'm looking to purchase a Tilt/Shift system, and I know I will need this finder if I want to have better control on the camera position.

Regards,

Frank

Hi,

I have the Minolta version (that is exactly the same) of the Right Angle that I use it with the bellows. It works as a charm, and you have the 2X loupe.

Thank you for your comments :-) , I will order one.

But on the A77 ... do you really need one... probably you can sell it to me :-)

I got one for my A900, but it cannot be used with eyepiece correction lenses. Now I use a third party angle finder which almost fits, but not quite! There is just enough gap to accommodate the correction lens and it's usable!

Of course, you don't need correction lenses with the angle finder (it has dioptre adjustment built in), but I really don't want to be handling something as small and fiddly as a correction lens at a difficult location (e.g, boggy Scottish moorland with heather underfoot). Eventually I would be sure to drop it and never find it again.
