Description: Especially designed for the accessory port, the VF-2 perfectly fits to the E-P2. The electronic Viewfinder is removable and offers therefore a maximum of flexibility. Additionally with the tilting mechanism low angle shoots become an enjoyable shooting experience. On the other hand the focussing is very easy to judge, as the VF-2 is extremely bright with high contrast. To control the result the electronic Viewfinder shows all image adjustments like exposure compensation, white balance, aspect ratios, etc. before you press the release button.

A Must-Buy for the E-PL1
I use this viewfinder on my Olympus E-PL1 Olympus PEN E-PL1 12.3MP Live MOS Micro Four Thirds Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Zuiko Digital Zoom Lens (Black) mostly when in bright sunlight situations. It can be used in low light also, but the rear LCD usually suffices then. If there were a method of permanently attaching the VF-2 to the camera, I would have to give that serious consideration.

It attaches firmly in the camera's hot shoe, but there's nothing besides friction holding it on. I keep close watch on it so I don't lose it, but I've had no problems.

The VF-2 is simply excellent, with great color and very high resolution.

Very nice, clear and bright high-resolution display
I bought this for my E-PL1 camera. Display is very bright, clear and high resolution(800x600). Refresh rate is very fast and there is no annoying flicker in good to bright light. Images look really smooth compared to Panasonic GF-1 low-resolution viewfinder. This is because of the tighter dot-pitch and higher resolution of the VF-2. You won't notice any individual pixels, although the camera menu will look a little blocky but still nice. The camera also can adjust the brightness and color temperature of the VF-2. There is a button to switch easily from viewfinder to LCD. The ability to tilt the VF-2 is an added bonus. It fits snug on the camera, and shouldn't fall off with normal use. I'm planning to leave it attached unless I need to use the hotshoe for something else. That is one of the negatives, it covers up the hot shoe. Another negative, is that in low light it can have an annoying flicker and get grainy, just like the E-PL1 LCD display. What you see on LCD is how it will also...

Olympus VF2, an essential accessory
I purchased this view finder for my new Olympus EPL1, which I had exchanged for my Panasonic GF1 with its accessory external view funder precisely because the Panasonic view finder produced such poor quality images. This is not the place to compare these two cameras. My swap should give you a clue about this. Anyway, you do get what you pay for. The VF2 viewfinder cost about $100 more than the Panasonic equivalent, but is well worth the difference in price. I am an older photographic enthusiast very much used to digital SLR's, which give me steady images when I hold the camera against my eye. I have more trouble achieving real steadiness when shooting with the camera held out in front of me. In bright light this is not a problem. But in low light, lower camera speeds make shake more of a problem, which the anti-shake technology on the Panasonic and Olympus do not really overcome. So this is the first advantage of the VF2. It provides for a steadier camera position. The second...
