German term or phrase: Dioptrienausgleich
Einen Dioptrienausgleich sucht man vergebens, das Bild ist leicht ruckelig und die Farbwiedergabe unangenehm blaustichig.

"Built-in dioptric correction"

http://216.110.36.24/PRODS/D770/D770A.HTM

"For eyeglass wearers, a dioptric adjustment dial lies on the side of the viewfinder."

http://www.charm.net/~mchaney/d700/index.html

"Diopter adjustment. The little lever to the right of the eyepiece is used to adjust for individuals with different eyesight."

http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/companies/canon/fdresou...

"eyesight correction lenses (Diopters)"

http://www.nikon.ca/camera/zoom600/index.html

"And there's even dioptre adjustment that lets you customise the viewfinder to match your eyesight."

It appears that all the above camera experts like the word dioptre (BE) or diopter (AE). You can get around the BE-AE spelling problem by using the adjective form as in the first two examples above.

I like "dioptric correction" best.
