Magnifty - a really cheap alternative to on board dslr monitors for focus

So this is a pretty awesome and cheap alternative to the on board monitors, which as we all know are sometime an expensive pain. This product was invented a couple of years ago by me, an LA director of photography. It fits on the rails and is basically a big ass magnifying glass which gets you about 2 to 4 times closer to the LCD. It's called the Magnifty and we're selling it now on our ebay store or at Samy's Camera in LA and Pasadena. It's $79.95. Super-durable and is supposed to fit on your rails or varying sizes, but for sure Red Rock. Watch the VIDEO:

I've used mine for over two years and don't leave home without it. It really does work. I also stack two of them together and get SUPER close at times. Other advantages are that it provides a great stability point and allow you to make and attach a sun shade for bright days. Allows you to use both your eyes to focus as opposed to the monocle concept. There's a patent pending. What else...? Ah yes, we have a warning which might seem obvious: Don't shoot into the sun with it. I've done it and it can give you a nasty tan and hurt your eyes. It's a magnifying glass! If you've ever burned leaves with one using the sun you get the idea...

Enjoy! ~mark
