The new Kinotehnik viewfinder for the Blackmagic pocket cinema camera is almost here.  It’s called “LCDVF BM” and it’s designed to fit with BMPCC’s 3.5 inch LCD with 16/9 aspect ratio. This viewfinder is slightly bigger than the other models in Kinotehnik’s arsenal but it still has the classic mounting system with magnets inside of the plastic body attaching to the carbon steel mounting frame. The “LCDVF BM” will also have a diopter correction option as it comes with metal thread that takes in optional 37mm diopter adjustment lenses.
The optional diopter kit is sold separately and can be purchased here . It includes standard 37mm +1; +2; +4 close up lenses.
This new LCDVF BM will be available from November 1st.
The retail price will be same as it is for the “LCDVF 3C” and “LCDVF 4N” viewfinders and it will be widely available all over the world.

Please note. The unit presented in this video is a prototype. The physical shape of it is final but the materials and surface treatment are not right. The final product has impact resistant ABS plastic body and the eye-piece is made from skin friendly silicone rubber. Kinotehnik is also using achromatic doublet lenses to achieve un-compromised image quality. In other words the new “LCDVF BM” will be a solid and durable product as all of their viewfinders.

Hi Uros.

I will do my best to address any sound issues in the next reviews. (the ones which are already recorded will have the same sound “quality”.

Thanks for taking the time watching the video and commenting.

I am using one on my 5D Mark 3, and I don’t like its quality, the images is not enough clear.

Hi Matin.

This is surprising. Did you try contacting Kinotehnik sharing your concerns?

Reply
Matin September 29, 2013

Hi Johnnie,

No, I didn’t cause I think this the quality that Kinotehnik provide,there is nothing wrong with it. I tried my friends Zacuto, and there was a huge differences. sadly I paid 115 Euro for Kinotehnik and I can afford Zacuto.

Thank you very much Johnnie, I still believe that the quality they provide is depend on how much it worth, if I need better quality and sharper image I should go for Zacuto.

Hi, nice review.

Do you have any opinion of how this may compare to this, or the newer magnetic version coming out?

Oh, and I’m looking to use for bmpcc, just FYI

Hi Dominic.

Sorry, I have no experience with the device shown in the link you’ve sent me. Actually I’ve contacted the person behind this VF in the past and asked for a sample unit for a review but he never came back to me.

And…Enjoy your BMPCC!.

Johnnie
