Shalu. Do you know anyone who's been using the dot sight on a Canon camera. If so are they happy with it?
I have one and was trying it a couple of days ago with swallows on my 7D2. I didn't get any keepers. The accuracy of the dot sight is not very good. For sure I need more practice, but the aiming seems to vary unpredictably. I tried it on static subjects and often I wasn't getting the subject in the frame where I expected.
With the birds, I got several empty frames and some OOF birds at the extreme edge of the pic. Since you are not viewing the bird through the viewfinder, you can't see if focus has been achieved. There is a tendency to shoot too quick before it could possibly have focused. That part needs more practice and concentration.
I still need to try it on my Sony RX10 IV.
