    But a 35mm is pretty small compared to even a 645 waist level.

    [QUOTE What is the best use for these or are they more a useless piece of gear?[/QUOTE]

    I suppose that a WLF of any format but especially 35mm is likely to let you get away with candid work more easily (not that I've tried). I have one on my Asahiflex, which I use occasionally when I need reminding why someone invented the pentaprism!!! ;-)

    True but as a practical matter the Canon finder isn't really used waist-level. It wasn't even called that. It pivoted for either horizontal or vertical shooting and I think it was called a Speed Finder. I found it most useful for low angle shooting or for situations where I had to stand next to, not behind the camera.

    I found an interesting use for a waist level finder. I sat down with my Yashica MAT-124G and took a candid picture while making it look like I was just fooling around with my camera and not actually taking picture. Worked like a charm.
