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.

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 LCDVF was designed with feedback from the viewers here on C5D. The LCDVF is one of the most cost effective viewfinders on the market at around $150 US. We will be giving these away to three lucky C5D viewers. To win simply follow LCDVF on Twitter and post the following in quotes below. We will announce the winners Friday Feb 4th, 2011.Read more

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 the camera. This makes it very easy to take the viewfinder on and off. The frame is pretty flimsy. I would suggest getting a few as backups. The eyepiece itself collapses down to a mere two inches when closed. This will save space in the camera bag. When opened it locks down very well. The diopter does lock down by twisting it clockwise. I discovered that after the Quick Take. I tried it with a Canon 5D Mark II and it covered the LCD quite well. JAG35 is selling them here in the US for around $60. Digifinder also sells them direct for around 50 EUR.Read more
