    WTB Small rangefinder unit that attaches to cold shoe.

    Now I'm looking for a small uncoupled rangefinder unit that attaches to a cold shoe, or by other means.
    Thanks 2bits

    There are several listed on eBuy at this moment. Look for "accessory rangefinder" under "cameras & photo." Prices look a little high to me, but I might be wrong about that.

    Certo6 has a good refurbished Voightlander shoe rangefinder for sale on the 'bay. One of the few sellers you know you can trust to have a quality item.

    I'm probably way behind the times with this, but for a while I seem to remember that Fotoman Camera, Ltd. was continuing to sell off remaining merchandise after they went out of business in mid-2009. At one time they were offering this small auxiliary rangefinder unit marked down to US$125. However, I don't know their current status, if any, except that their website is still around.

More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    You might try looking for a Watameter. Out of production but simple to calibrate, reasonably accurate and can be had for about $25 (or less).
