Whoop-de-do...

It may attract lightning but it certainly ain't going to attract wimmin...

Have I slipped through a worm-hole in the time/space continuum and found myself in the 1st April?

Some actually like nerdly types - maybe it is babe magnet?? Anyway, I will happily hear some live reports, from the more adventurous.

Another presumed use

May be it's a sort of not completed slingshot/catapult for... photos and hunting into the wild?

I actually did 'Laugh out loud'... LOL- for once.

Absurdism at its best- Alfted Jarrie would approve. And why 3 viewfinders on one camera? A flash maybe... or a light meter...


The seller understands salesmanship:

"This will REALLY impress your rangefinder friends!"

I was just about to say that the extra 2mm of my M6TTL have been giving me trouble with external viewfinders, but this puts it all in perspective!

I dont expect the perspective will alter just because of the height

At least the lens hood wont intrude on the view.

Is probably meant for flash I suppose, although I wouldn't want all that leverage on the camera shoe even with a small flash (or two!)

PS for some reason 'Chrome' doesn't want to show emoticons properly in the reply here, I had no problem with Explorer.
