14Nov LCD Sunhoods ViewFinders EVF Monitors


Tweet
If you’re working (or planning to work) with the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera #BMPC you may quickly realize the LCD screen can be very difficult to work with outdoors. Other cameras may not be as bad, but can still use a little help blocking out ambient light.
One quick down and dirty way to block [...]

01May Adjustable 15mm Dual Rail Clamp EVF Mount


Tweet
For those who are mounting electronic view finders (EVF) with mini ball heads or perhaps variable friction (magic) arms, you might have run into the issue where the EVF can spin loose as you apply pressure against the eye cup or may be too much for a hot shoe to handle. Ball Heads and Friction [...]

02Jan Seetec / Scope 3.5″ EVF Loupe


Tweet
Towards the end of 2010, it seemed like there would be an explosion of Electronic View finders. In the end only a handful have been popular such as the Cineroid EVF (starting $548), Zacuto EVF (starting $749), and the SmallHD DP4-EVF (starting $599).

21Sep Zacuto EVF Mounting Option – CheeseStick Bar


Tweet

Zacuto’s introduced a new CheeseStick bar for the Z-EVF that will allow more flexible mounting options. (surprised it wasn’t named something like Z-heesestick?) Instead of using the lonely 1/4-20″ thread below the Z-EVF, you’ll now have a variety of mounting points along the top or the back (depending on how you install the cheesestick). Found [...]

29Jul Zacuto EVF – Custom Scaling Options


Tweet

This ends up being a huge time saver for me as I was going to run through some of the Zacuto EVF menu options. Here’s a nice run through the menu on how to scale just about any video input type with the Zacuto EVF. I’ll try to run through the SmallHD DP4 menu, which [...]

19Jul SmallHD DP4 and Zacuto Z-EVF side by side


Tweet

First look at the two most popular EVFs on the market side by side. Surprisingly not a ‘major’ size difference, nor a huge weight difference. The Z-EVF is super lightweight, but when used with the Zacuto Z-Finder it adds on a bit. Note: I have no affiliation nor have I ever received any items from [...]

14Jul SmallHD DP4-EVF Unboxing


Tweet

First look at what’s in the box with the Small HD DP4-EVF. First impression, this thing is much bigger than I anticipated. It’s a very nice external monitor, and sadly it might be enough to replace my DP6 (might be up for sale soon?). The menu with the click wheel on top, is the same [...]

11Jul Zacuto EVF with AfterMarket View Finder(s)


Tweet

Zacuto EVF Snap Viewfinder
Zacuto’s got one of the sweetest EVFs (electronic viewfinders) available on the market. You could buy the 3″ HDMI EVF alone which will save you a few hundred dollars, but of course, what good is the EVF if you don’t have the Z-Finder Loupe to match? Having to invest in a [...]

17Jun Zacuto EVF – Electronic View Finder


Tweet

While we wait for other EVF solutions (RedRock where you at?), the Zacuto Z-EVF seems to be the hippest one available. Unfortunately, it’s usually out of stock. If you’ve been on the hunt, the Z-EVF has shown up from a retailer out of new york, who has different models listed on both eBay and Amazon [...]

27Apr EVF – Electronic Viewfinders


Tweet

Left to Right – Cineroid EVF, Zacuto EVF, Redrock Micro EVF
Cineroid, Redrock, and Zacuto have all announced EVF (electronic view finder) solutions in the last year to change the very poor unbalanced ergonomics of DSLR video cameras. (Well RedRock doesn’t really exist -yet..). The pitch is that you spend a good amount of money on [...]

28Dec A look at the Cineroid EVF – Electronic View Finder


Tweet
Chris M. share’s some images of his Cineroid EVF which I believe is the first EVF out on the market. We’re still waiting for Zacuto and RedRock Micro to release their version. If you’re that impatient type that needs an EVF now, there’s a limited amount of these Cineroid things you can grab over at [...]

Shortly after RedRock Micro announced their EVF – Electronic View Finder for DSLR’s, Zacuto now has a complete web page and video showcasing their product. Actually they’ve gone as far as a complete domain name @ ZFinderEVF.com. It’s still up in the air if RedRock Micro has an actual working version, but from the images [...]
