Deity Mira – Quality viewfinder for Canon C300 / 500

The Deity Mira viewfinder is an LCD loupe for the Canon EOS C300 and EOS C500 cameras offering a convenient, complementary solution for handheld and outdoor use.

Deity MiraFilmmaker Sebastien Devaut has been closely involved in the development of the Deity Mira which was created with the quality demands of professional camera operators in mind. The device is made of high quality materials, precisely milled aluminum and two custom made glass elements. After a long development period it is finally beginning to be shipped out.

In light of other more affordable viewfinder loupes for DSLR’s the Deity Mira seems quite costly at first. Priced at $695 it is the most expensive unit of its kind.

But when you use the product like we did briefly at NAB, you realize there is a little more to it. The two glass components display a very clear and almost undistorted image and make great use of the camera’s built-in LCD which is considered to be quite good.

To find out if the Deity is the right loupe for you we recommend taking a look at one up close.

The Deity viewfinder can be ordered at your selected retailer or at their website: LINK

I have to admit I was extremely skeptical when I heard the price – but when I had it in my hands and used it on the camera I was amazed how well it is made and how extremely good the glass is. I honestly believe that kind of glass could go in front of the lens as well and it would result in pristine images.

Also, the aluminium is super thin and robust … everything except the glass is super light weight and it doesn’t put as much strain on the monitor as I feared it would.

I find it makes the C300 a better camera – the only thing it really needs is something that sets the monitor a bit more apart from the camera. I think Vocas provides such a solution but I am sure there will be others to follow soon!

The Movcam top handle allows you place the C300 monitor in a more useful position.
