About the Canon EVF-DC1

Keep your eye on the action

Canon's EVF-DC1 high-resolution electronic viewfinder can help you get your shot right in situations where composition on your camera's LCD screen isn't ideal. When you're out shooting in extremely bright sunlight or following moving subjects, using a viewfinder makes it easier to confirm focus. You can set your compatible Canon camera to switch automatically between the LCD screen and the EVF-DC1 via an eyepiece sensor or a dedicated button, and the viewfinder will display all of the shooting information you'd find on the LCD screen. The viewfinder tilts 90 degrees upward so you don't have to lean over when using a tripod and can compose from different angles.

Product Research


Overview: The Canon EVF-DC1 is an add-on electronic viewfinder for select Canon digital cameras. It attaches to the hot shoe of the camera, from which it receives power. With the electronic viewfinder, you can bring the camera up to your eye to frame your shots. The EVF-DC1 comes with a soft cloth storage pouch.

Compatibility: The EVF-DC1 is compatible with the following Canon cameras:

  • EOS M3
  • PowerShot G1X Mark II
  • PowerShot G3X

High-Resolution LCD: The EVF-DC1 features a high-resolution LCD screen that gives you a crystal clear view of your subject.

Diopter: On the bottom of the viewfinder is a rotary diopter control that lets you focus the viewfinder's image to your eyesight.

Tilting Action: The EVF-DC1 is hinged, allowing it to be tilted up to 90°. This lets you use the viewfinder for low angle shots or for difficult framing situations.

Mounting: The electronic viewfinder has a multi-contact connector which attaches to the camera's hot shoe. It automatically locks into place to prevent loss, and requires a press of the unlock button to release. A terminal cover is included to protect the contacts when not in use.
