Hey guys,
What is that tool that the director uses to look through in order to visualise a certain shot. Its that one where it is adjustable as far as switching to different lenses and seeing how the shot looks like.
Thanks!

Thanks Gordon,
at school we never used it, and am shooting a music video next week on film, so I needed to know what it is called -- thanks again
