    Been looking for a 6x6 digital back or camera system, finally decided
    that the cost was just too great, so bought a Kodak, with a view to
    buying a 1Ds mk2 if I was happy with the general idea.
    The Kodak is great, but using it on a low tripod in the studio for hours
    at a time is physically so much harder than using the old RB 67, simply
    because you have to keep crouching down behind it to look through the
    viewfinder, or when it is at eye level you have to dodge all the gubbins
    sticking out of the tripod to get your eye to the viewfinder...
    The old Nikon F3 had a waist level finder option to get around this...
    and I have heard that there were some clip-on right angle viewfinder
    adapters around for the autofocus Nikons and Canons a few years ago.
    Anyone know anything about them.??? are they still available..??? and
    if so, are they any good...???
    Thanks
    Andy

    Nikon makes right-angle finder attachments for its SLRs. Also, the VERY
    NICE Canon Angle Finder C fits almost all SLRs that have rectangular
    viewfinders -- it has a couple of attachments for different sizes -- and has
    nice long eye relief and your choice of magnification. I've fitted it to my
    Nikon N70 and Olympus OM-1.
