hi genesis,

this is the one I use with my angel eye dvr, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261006236524? ... 1439.l2649

the metal frame has double sided tape to stick it to the dvr, then the loupe attaches magnetically to the metal frame, I had to remove the right hand side of the frame as it covered the function buttons, it hasn't made any difference, the loupe still holds quite well :thumbup:

couple of piccies (sorry about the quality :oops: )

must admit it does cut down on the light spill from the screen

I bought a much more expensive loupe, 2x mag (cant recall the name of it) which has dioptre adjustment. I don't use it.

Any of you guys having focus problems?

It's very snide of the producer of that thing to mould what would deceptively be assumed is an adjustable dioptre into it.

Here's a link to the one I have - which does have adustment.
