Ever had a problem to find your target when using really long lenses? EE-1 Dot
Sight might be a solution for that. Check out the video without test the EE-1 Dot
Sight and see how it can help you and why it is really useful.
Hi there I am Peter Forsgard an Olympus Visionary and a professional
photographer from Helsinki Finland and before we get into the EE -1 Dot Sight
please consider subscribing to my channel and hit that bell so you get
notified when there is a new video online. I post two videos a week, usually
on Tuesdays and on Fridays and remember my channel is all about you getting to
be a better photographer and of course about Olympus gear, but let's start
And a disclaimer this EE-1 Dot Sight is my own. I bought it a few months ago just
because I'm not very used to making images with long lenses and this will
help me a lot. EE-1 Dot Sight is an external viewfinder which helps you to find
subject when you're using a long lens, because without it, it's sometimes really
really hard. Have you ever tried it? Please, let me know in the comments down below.
You attach the EE-1 to the hot shoe of your camera and what's great
about this is that this works with any camera, it doesn't have to be an Olympus
camera. You can use this with any camera and with any long lens and now that it is
attached. We open it and then we need to turn it on so that we can see
the the red dot and then it has to be calibrated. I've chosen the
middle focusing point and then I will put this to the same point that I've
have chosen from the background and what you do you have two little knobs here
and you just need to, okay this way now and let's see now we have it now it's
exactly in the middle and now it's ready to be used. Very simple and easy. Remember you
need to calibrate this for every lens that you are going to use it with and if you
have a zoom lens then I would calibrate it to the longest focal length of that
zoom lens. So remember that if you switch your lens you need to calibrate your EE-1,
but it's not actually a big deal. It's quite easy as you saw.
Let's see what's in the box. When you get this and what you have in the box, of
course you have a manual, you have a battery for it then you have the EE-1
itself and then you have a small pouch for it.
And now this is your viewfinder and you hold your camera like this and
what you do is to you will set the red dot to the place you want to take an
image of and when you have calibrated the focusing point exactly to the same spot
where you set the red dot. You will have a perfectly sharp image on exactly what
you indented to make the image of. The advantage of this is that you see a lot
more around your viewfinder if you just have your eye closed to your EVF then
you don't see anything besides what's inside the EVF but if you use the EE-1
Dot Sight you see also what's happening around your viewfinder, so you are seeing
what is going to happen and this is actually a same method that sports
photographers used to use and they used to have what is so-called sports
viewfinder, but then there are some disadvantages of holding your camera like
this. It is not the most let's say stable way, but remember you have very good
stabilizer in this combo. All Olympus cameras have a very good stabilizer so it's
not that big of a deal and when you start using it it's really really handy
but of course when you get more experience with that, then you can just
ditch this, but I know that very many very experienced photographers, nature
photographers, bird photographers use this because it makes it so much easier
to find your target because with a long lens it's really really kind of awkward to
find if you're not, well not awkward is a wrong word, but it's not that
easy to find if you're not very experienced. See there are some
Now it's easy to find those birds far far away but it's really easy let's see
if I can take any image, too far too far, no use of making those images.
The normal price of this is a bit over 100 euros here in Europe but I got it a bit under.
I got it for 99 euros and that's why I decided to get it for myself, because I'm
not very used to using long telephoto lenses and this is going to help me a
lot when I do some bird photography and what I do bird photography it's city
birds because I'm not an outdoor person I really like to be inside the city and
not out in the woods, So that's perfect for me. City birds are the ones that I'm
going to use this and help me to get better images of those and if you're
planning on getting this - there will be some links in the description of this
video. Those links are Amazon affiliate links and please consider using those
links if you want to get one of these, because you don't pay any extra but I
get a small commission if you get this or anything else in Amazon. Thanks if
you're using those links and there are some other videos that you might want to
watch. These two videos, the first one is about the 300 millimeter and the second
one is about 40-150 millimeter lens so you might want to watch those next if
you haven't seen those yet, but hey thanks for watching and bye for now.
