Here's a deal that everyone can instantly benefit from. It's a 72 hour promotion starting today (just 3 days) for up to $60 dollars off the Kamerar QV-1 LCD View Finder or QV-1 LCD View Finder Kit.

Product Description:

The QV-1 LCD View Finder will magnify your lcd screen image by 2.5x so that you can easily focus on your subject, and will also offer a true view of your image when working outdoors in bright daylight. An adjustable diopter ring moves the primary lens forward or back if your image does not appear focused. This is especially helpful for those who have less than perfect vision. The innovative magnetic quick release design allows the QV-1 to be inserted and removed from a solid metal quick release baseplate attached to the bottom of your camera.

The QV-1 baseplate shares a similar shape to the Manfrotto 501PL quick release plate. Once the QV-1 baseplate is attached to your camera, you can mount directly to supported Manfrotto video fluid heads. If you are using a different system, you can still attach your proprietary tripod plate under the QV-1 baseplate by accessing the available 1/4" threads. The QV-1 Kit includes a quick release baseplate and a set of industry standard 15mm rails.

This is a very recent product release, and possibly a few of you may already have one in your hands. There is one online review I could find from this website by TechGuyEric (found here), and could be a good read to see what he has to say about the equipment.

New product announcement. Dedicated to manufacturing products for the budget filmmaker, Kamerar has made available a new consumer budget friendly QV-1 LCD View Finder that attaches to a baseplate through a unique Magnetic system.

After discovering dslr video consumers lacked options for a sub $80 dollar high quality view finder with professional features, we decided to focus on the QV-1 LCD View Finder product. We feel consumers will also be excited with the new QB-15 Quick Base system that will make attaching 15mm rails for accessories a breeze. - team Kamerar

*This view finder is not designed to work with very tall camera bodies like the 1D series, nor will it work with battery grips attached.

The QV-1 magnification is 2.5x, uses a flip up method to work as a sunshade or to access touch screen lcds, and has rotating diopter. The QV-1 slides directly into a magnetic slot behind the adapter plate, allowing easy mounting and dismounting from the camera body. Ships with a lanyard neck strap, microfiber cleaning cloth, adapter plate, and QV-1 view finder.

One interesting note that some may find useful is that the baseplate is similar enough in design that it can mount directly to a Manfrotto 701HDV Fluid Head, or to compatible quick release baseplate systems that support the Manfrotto 501PL.

Regardless, the QV-1 baseplate still offers an optically centered 1/4"-20 tripod hole for you to attach any Quick Release of your choice (including another Manfrotto if you so choose).

The more expensive QV-1 Kit includes a new QB-15 Quick Base Adapter that clamps 15mm Rails to the QV-1 baseplate (8" rails are included). This kit provides users with a very simple and cost effective way to add a set of rails to any camera.

http://Kamerar.com was recently relaunched with an entirely new line of high quality affordable products tailored for DSLR Video shooters. I actually have access to the entire product line because it's being distributed by PhotographyandCinema.com (which I design some products for), but I try to only answer comments about the products instead of doing my own reviews.

So here, Rick Owens shares his first impressions after receiving a few products [Thanks Rick]. I was waiting to see how others review the http://Kamerar.com products, and i'm happy to hear how impressed Rick was with the combination of build quality and price.

The Tank Cage uses P&C Swiss Rod designs to provide a ridiculous amount of mounting options (overkill). The MatteBox is great for a single ND filter use (non-rotational), and the Follow Focus can swap positions of the gear in case you plan to use a longer or shorter lens. With the exception of the Matte Box (for weight reasons), all materials, including the little clamp knobs are of metal construction with anodized coating. You can find these products and more over at http://Kamerar.com
