Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video The viewfinder display, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
As we've discussed, one of the great advantages of an SLR is that you actually…look through the same lens that exposes the sensor.…This gives you a very accurate viewfinder and it allows you to have a very…bright clear view of your scene.…Your Viewfinder also provides you with a tremendous amount of status…information as we'll see.…Now in the Rebel, the viewfinder eyepiece cover here is removable.…You just squeeze the edges and pull it out like this.…This allows you easier access for cleaning the viewfinder eyepiece and it allows…you to swap in other covers.…
You can get an eyepiece cover that comes out farther to give you a more shaded viewfinder,…you can also get a right-angle eyepiece which can be useful if you're doing…macro work, down low, things like that.…To put it back on, you just slide it back into place here.…Now, on the top of the Viewfinder is the diopter control.…If you wear glasses, you might be able to adjust the diopter to compensate for…your prescription which will let you shoot without your glasses on.…
