Reader Comment: Mass Coupling for Sharper Images by Using View on Compact Cameras

Dale P writes:

The same idea applies to other small compacts without an EVF, not just the Sigma DP Merrill.

I also was irritated that there was no way to hold the Sigma DP Merrill up to my glasses and compose an image. By chance I happened to see a reference to this device in a blog somewhere. Someone liked using it on a point and shoot with an LCD but no viewfinder.

Basically this device attaches either on the tripod mount or into the flash mount site on the camera. It is a plastic arm and a flip up/down high quality lens then lets you comfortably put your eye right up to the lens and see the whole LCD.

So…I spent around $50 to check it out.

Surprise! It turns out that by pressing the lens firmly against my glasses, it is as if I am mashing the camera against my forehead. Giving great stability compared to holding the camera out away from my face with my two hands.
This is a technique you have referred to before I think.

Your theory works! I got sharp photo’s at 1/25th of a second at F4 whereas without the device my shots were blurry.

Worth considering for someone who wants sharp pictures with the DP Merrills.

I have no connection to the company making the device and just thought this info might help your other subscribers.

DIGLLOYD: I call this “mass coupling”, it’s no theory (it works), and it’s one of the techniques I discuss in the How to Hold a Camera Steady (Mass Coupling) section of Making Sharp Images.
