p.1 #1 · Does using a right-angle finder successfully throw off people for candid shots?


The camera / lens would still be pointed in their direction, but you would be facing differently, like 90 degrees differently (depending on how you twist it)-- I wonder if this throws them off enough that they won't feel like they're being "focused" upon. This would be for street photography but also potentially indoor shots too.

It will make some people think you are shooting in the direction your are facing, but others will notice the lens pointed at them. It will depend a lot on your location - busy street, quiet room, etc.

Good luck with it. Maybe tell us your experience after you try it.

It would be an interesting experiment.

I've used the variable screen of the S3 camera several times to get candid shots of people. The zoom range of the camera (28 - 432mm) has also helped.

I've used it with crowds at games and a picnic involving scores of people. The images were then given to leaders of the group, who added them to their Facebook pages, U-tube, etc., so family and friends in India could enjoying them.

It has worked quite well.

Use this to point the camera away from the subject.

Beat me to it, exactly what I was thinking about.

I don't think it would fit on my 135mm f/2...
