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 him.
See the video above for a detailed walkthrough and introduction.
The most important things to say about this device are the following:– very good 800×480 24bit screen– hdmi loopthrough with audio– endless features: peaking, zoom, autozoom, guides, markers, crop, anamorphic, etc…– snappy due to high processing power (Altera Cyclone FPGA processor)– very little delay (very very important!)– 15mm rod- and hotshoe-mount included– powered by 4AA batteries– diopter adjustment -3 to +2Testing the device I found it very usable and well made, great glass (screen size in front of your eye), little optical deformation, snappy menu and processor, very sharp image. I haven’t done extensive testing on EVFs, but I did like this device, used it for about 10 minutes.
Tonis says it will be available in large quantities in November.And it will probably cost 650€ ($890)
