GH2 (GH1) ViewFinder to support Flip Out LCD


There's the usual LCD View Finders that might work on the GH2, but a very interesting one from Varavon allows you to flip out the LCD and provide enough support so that you don't break it off. Something that can't be done with the traditional sticky metal frame. The company is the same who provided the unique internal mirror for Low viewing angles I reviewed here: Not available yet, but looks like it will be soon. They make some quality products, but pricing was always the weak point stepping into the market. Curious as to what initial pricing will be, or maybe we'll get a peek at this over at Las Vegas NAB.

    I've seen a diy versions of something similar to this, minus the added support. One was using a Cinetactics screenhoodie to hold a lcd viewfinder in place. The other was using a Hoodman camcorder lcd mounting strap from the EX pro kit. Both of these cost around 30 bucks and will hold an LCD viewfinder loupe in place.

    I've found that a viewfinder on the flip screen of the GH2 is not very useful since the screen doesn't have a very good picture. Better off using the EVF or external monitor.
