NAB 2011 – LCDVF-E: Let the Electronic Viewfinder wars begin!
By: Sebastian Wöber
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.
