Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video Do you see what I see?, part of Photography 101 (2012).
Many of us wear eyeglasses. I wear them for long distance viewing, …so, for example, when I'm driving. And usually you think, I probably should …wear them when I shoot. And a lot of people wear glasses while …they shoot, and that's fine. But I tend to prefer not to. …Because, you know, holding the, the camera up to my face, it just keeps my …eye a little bit farther away from the viewfinder. …It's a little bit harder to see everything inside of it. …So I prefer to shoot, without my glasses. Now the problem with that, though, is …that now, everything through the lens is just a little bit out of focus. …So I need to correct for that. Well, fortunately, all DSLRs have a built …in dioptic correction that you can dial in for your particular type of vision.…
It's really easy to adjust. All you have to is, well, first, find the dial. …So, on this particular type of camera, you'll find that it's hidden underneath …the rubber eye cup here. …So you need to pull that off, and then there's the dial right there. …
