Remember Sebastien Devaud’s Canon C100 introduction film (LINK) in September? Well he’s back and he shows us a product that might be a pretty useful and affordable alternative to one of those fancy electronic viewfinders.
The Deitygear 4″ high quality loupe makes us nostalgic and lets us relive the times when we put Read more

Just as Cineroid, Alphatron plans to make an EVF loupe that uses the iPhone retina display screen, manufactured by LG.
As you may know this display has a high quality and a screen with 960×640 pixels on a very small space which is almost twice as many pixels as the commonly used 800×480 displays. The EVF is manufactured and developed by renown company TVLogic....
Tonis’ LCDVF viewfinder for dslrs was a very useful asset two years ago when hdslr filming started. This year his much anticipated digital version of a viewfinder will finally hit the market.
The housing of the LCDVFe could already be seen at NAB in April this year, but now for IBC Tonis had 3 actualy working models with...
As we announced earlier this month Cineroid has presented their new EVF at NAB 2011.
While the interior seems to have stayed the same as also the name with the same prefix of EVF4… suggests, the exterior has turned to a more durable metal casing and different input output models.
Cineroid was the first company to introduce an EVF and as we’ve seen in Johnnies review before also the tests at NAB showed that the quality of this 800×480 3.2 inch screen is very good and it’s easy to focus (keep in mind that not only resolution but also screen and evf chip quality is important to get focussing right).
Here’s a video with Joseph who shows us some of the many new features and menu system.
As far as I can tell we’re the first here to present pricing and availability of the new units. See below.
Available June 2011:
Metal / HDSI loopthrough:
EVF4MSS – $1399
Metal / hdmi in – HDSDI out:
EVF4MHS – $1249
Available May 2011:
Metal / hdmi loopthrough:

Already available (“older” units that came out some months ago with same screen):

hdmi in only:
EVF4Be – $649
Cineroid EVFs are/will be available at the following resellers throughout the wolrd: Cineroid where to buy...

Redrock, Zacuto, Cineroid, smallHD, everbody’s throwing electronic viewfinders at us. Tõnis might be the last to have a working model but I know he is a very dedicated engineer and has put a lot of effort into this one to make it a great product and still affordable. Right now I couldn’t say if he managed to get it right since all he got for NAB was a prototype version.
You might notice how Tõnis emphasizes the software side of the viewfinder. Indeed some manufacturers tend to overlook how important a feature packed and easy to use interface is on a device like this.
What we hear in this video sounds impressing, but we’ll have to wait until May to see if he can deliver. At $750 the specs are very promising. High res, great viewing angle, non reflective, hdmi loopthrough.
We really need a comparison of all the available evfs soon. I’ll try to get hold of all the available evf’s later this year to stress test them to the max cinema5D style....

Here is a Quick Take video on the new styles from LCDVF. They are one of the few manufactures who have addressed the smaller M4/3″ cameras like the new Panasonic GH2. They have two new viewfinders. The LCDVF 3/2 works well for the Canon 60D and Rebel series of HDSLR cameras and the LCDVF 16 X 9 was specifically designed to work with the Panasonic GH/GF series and Sony NEX cameras. Tõnis Liivamägi of LCDVF informed me that...

The crew over at JAG35 sent me the new Digi Finder Pro viewfinder for HDSLR’s. This is a great solution to the problem of shooting video in Live View with the LCD monitor on the camera. The Digi Finder is actually a pretty cool viewfinder for the money. The viewfinder utilizes a frame system attached to the LCD screen on the back of...
