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. Click here fo check it out. “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.”Read more

I only had a few minutes to shoot this Quick Take on the new Cineroid EVF. It has HDMI Pass-Through, a Peaking focus assist feature, a Flip feature and Black and White. I believe Monochrome and Peaking are both quick buttons on the side of the LCD. There are also two Function preset buttons. The EVF runs on rechargeable batteries and will come with a hot shoe mount of some kind. The viewfinder is hinged at the top and flips up to get out of the way. The eyepiece can also be removed completely if necessary. No real image squeeze with the Canon 5D Mark II while recording. The image does scale down a little in record mode. The resolution was quite good on the LCD. It will also work as a small external monitor. It also has a small speaker and headphone jack to monitor sound. No mention of exact pricing yet. It does come with a nifty little carrying case.Read more

Cineroid's Electronic Viewfinder. Photo By: Johnnie Behiri DSLR News Shooter Johnnie Behiri sent me these photos of a new EVF shown at IBC 2010 from a company called Cineroid. I think Electronic Viewfinders will be the next wave of gear from many manufactures. The Cineroid EVF is a 3.2 inch LCD with 800 X 400 lines of resolution connected via the HDMI output on the camera. It looks like it is powered from a Canon Style LP-E6 battery. They have developed a HDMI loop through back that can be connected to the LCD to add an additional HDMI output for monitoring. The base EVF unit will cost around $700 US. The loop through EVF will cost around $900. The Cineroid EVF is set for an October 2010 release date. ***UPDATE. It is a Sony Battery powering the EVF according to the Source: Johnnie Behiri. Battery Power For The EVF. Photo By: Johnnie Behiri Cineroid EVF For HDSLR. Photo By: Johnnie BehiriRead more
