Zigview SC-V100R



ZIGVIEW - the worlds first ever Digital Angle Finder, makes low and high level photography easy with its unique rotating LCD monitor. ZIGVIEW simply attaches to the eyepiece of your SLR camera where the viewfinder image is captured by a CMOS sensor built into the Zigview and relayed in real time to a 1.9inch TFT colour display for easy viewing at any angle.

Please note that the Zigview is the normal color - NOT IR - product.  We may make an IR version of the Zigview if we get enough requests.


Especially useful for low angle photography where you would struggle to see through the viewfinder especially with macro work or high angle situations such as press work.

ZIGVIEW will work with most digital and film SLR cameras and is supplied with an eyepiece adapter for common Nikon, Fuji and Canon cameras. Other adapters for Knoica Minolta and Pentax are available as accessories



An optional screenshade  is available designed for positioning over the LCD screen which successfully shades the screen from any glare, be it from the sun or artificial lighting, ensuring a clear view of the subject and an accurate preview of the picture. Incorporating self-supporting technology, the hood can be manipulated to whichever position is required and will stay rigidly in place. It is also available with a built-in magnifier, giving the photographer a more detailed view of images.

Building on the success of Seculine's Zigview digital Angle Finder, the Zigview-R incorporates a host of new features including a motion sensor trigger, a sophisticated interval timer and a bulb exposure controller making it the ideal accessory for wildlife, nature and macro photograpy or any situation where a covert or accurately timed approach is required

Interface Ports for battery charging of internal battery, manual shutter release and shutter connection port.


  Cable Release
Acts as cable release with two stage shutter release button when Zigview is not fixed to the camera


Bulb Exposure
With your camera set on "bulb" you can set the Zigview-R to expose the subject for a specified bulb duration within the interval timing facility.


Motion Sensor
Groundbreaking facility performs a shutter release when variations in the brightness in 9 areas of the LCD screen indicate movement


Exposures per interval
You can set the Zigview-R to capture several exposures per interval time at minium intervals of 0.5s apart. For instance you could set the timer to take 5 images 1 second apart after an interval of 8 minutes

Interval Timer
Interval timing can be performed with simple settings using number of shots required and the interval between shots, or more details can be specified.


Stopwatch style exposure timer for long exposures
