Adding an additional search term in Google ( ebay ) will pick up a Right Angle Finder for your camera at a Buy it Now price that will be half that of the straight search. My own unit for a Canon 300D ( with up to x 2.5 magnification) cost me US $ 58 from a Hong Kong supplier back in July 2007. This was via Ebay . Sorry that the price is dollars - the exchange rate has moved on quite a bit now .
My own Ebay experience has been good to date (over ca 200 purchases and 5 years) . Check the feedback etc. Caveat Emptor. Hope this is of some help

A tip that was useful for me is that the old Olympus right-angled viewfinder for OM cameras will fit the Canon 300D perfectly if you remove the rubber cover over the camera's viewfinder. Can't speak for the newer models.
