    Yep, this:

    and the aftermarket one:
    Amazon.com : Seagull 1x-2x Right Angle Finder for Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Minolta, Fuji, Olympus and Leica SLR cameras : Camera Lens Diopters : Camera & Photo

    I would use DSLR Dashboard and my phone though. Not wireless; I have the usb cable for my phone that allows me to hook it up to the camera.

    I haven't used mine much yet, but I think it helps to correct for vision issues. I bought mine used without paperwork describing the functions. But I haven't needed the extra magnification the switch offered so far! Lol

    I bought a used d5100 body for $300 just for this purpose. My days of belly crawling are over. It is also very useful when in a crowd to put the camera over my head and view the flip screen tilted down.

    @Bill16 - Ah okay, that makes sense; about the correction for vision issues.
    @Akozub - I had thought about going that route. For now, I'll hold off on buying another camera.

    Re: Flip down Viewfinder?

    Hmm, I didn't see your post earlier. How good is the aftermarket one? I ask because there is a pretty good price difference between the two.

    Am curious if there's any specific reason you suggest going wired instead of wireless? Thanks for the links by the way.

    I just looked at the after market version, trying to compare it to my DR-6 Nikon version. It seems to have a metal connection which worries me for the wear factor, and from reading reviews the fit might be an issue. But it might be worth a shot for such a cheap price, though I'm glad I bought the Nikon version regardless of the difference in price, because it seems to me to be reliable and less risky on wear and tear!

    But other members here that may have tried the after market version that can give a better opinion on it's quality and the likelihood of wear and tear or not!

    Ah okay; well as they sometimes say, "You get what you pay for". Usually it's best to go with something from the manufacturer. I didn't bother reading the reviews on Amazon. Usually the reviews on their differ from reviews found from other sites by other users. Actually; I don't take reviews that seriously nowadays.

    Honestly, I don't know. I don't have it. It seems like it has pretty good review though.

    Wired for cost and speed. I'm sure wireless would work fine if I could use one of the nikon dongles.
