Yes, it does.and it's better than trying to view the lcd screen in bright sunlight. BUT it's small and not very bright. It needs a deeper rubber sun visor than what Sony gave it. When shooting in the general direction of the light [never ideal] I find myself frequently holding my left hand pressed tightly against my forehead to block the remaining incoming light. That helps. Also, be SURE to carefully "dial in" your required eye setting on the right side of the eye piece. You will need it set as close to your vision requirements as possibe. Glasses wearer? You are out of luck. -- unless you can somehow attach a black tape "wraparound" extension to the eyepiece..That seems messy and very temporary. .Still, for the money -- it's a "WOW!" I have only recorded 4-K at the 60 mb'sec. rate [not 100 mb/sec.] and the quality is astounding. In bright sunlight you might want to attach a #2 or 3 ND filter. This will permit the camera to shoot at a shutter speed closer to the preferred 1/60 th or 1/30th of a second. If you don't, in bright light the too fast shutter speed that the camera will select can cause a visible quivering effect. Not garbage at all, but not as nice as what you could get with a slower shutter speed. M.J.
