    I have the Sinar binocular and the wide bellows. But I do not have the reflex viewer and no binocular hood. I just wonder what you guys use with Sinar camera. The dark cloth with magnifier, or the binocular+wide bellows, or the complete set of binocular+reflex viewer+hood?

    Your personal opinion is just fine. I know we humans are all different.

    I'm still getting used to moving my camera to compose.

    I use an original sinar monocular loupe attached to the wide bellows. You will need a norma wide angle bellows to make this work.
    It works great and is more easy to use than a dark cloth. It's only 2x but it's fine for my purposes.

    My preference is a 4'x5' dark cloth on the 4x5 Norma.

    I use the binocular viewer with the bag bellows on my 8x10 P2 and wouldn't have it any other way.
