Don’t see your 35mm SLR here? We have not assured its compatibility. We have found that the Lightscoop to fit new models of these brands’ SLR line as they’ve appeared and we have had the opportunity to test. We do have a 2-week return policy if you'd like to try the Lightscoop with your camera and return it if it doesn’t work out.

NOTE: If your camera does not have interchangeable lenses, its pop-up flash is not powerful enough to send light to the ceiling and back and still properly expose a picture. Sorry... it's not our fault! Blame it on physics!
