Cineroid announces a new metal EVF with HD/SDI Input/Outputs.
The new Cineroid EVF will have a bevy of features including HD/SDI loop through capability. The ability to use HD/SDI instead of HDMI is a huge bonus for shooters with cameras like the Panasonic AF100 or any other camera with HD/SDI output. It looks like the new EVF is based on a modular system similar to Marshall Electronics. Here is a rip from DSLR News Shooter. No mention of pricing yet.
“Key features include an anti-fog eyepiece, peaking, false colour, pixel-to-pixel magnification for focus checking, monochrome viewing and adjustments for anamorphic shooting. There is also a function to remote control the trigger of certain cameras. There will be three different configurations to choose from, each slightly different:
The EVF4MHH is a HDMI model with HDMI in and HDMI loop out. The EVF4MHS has a HDMI in and a HD-SDI loop out. The EVF4MSS has a HD-SDI in a HD-SDI loop out.
In addition, the EVF has crop marks and an audio level meter which shows levels from the HDMI input (although cameras like the Canon 5DmkII do not output audio over HDMI when recording, only playback). Power is from a Sony NPF-style battery or an additional adapter to utilise power from a D-tap on broadcast battery system.”
