For mirrorless shooters the built in EVF works wonders for photography. Still many will prefer to work with the rear LCD display and an LCD View Finder Loupe for video work. The problems is trying to find one that fits since typical mirrorless bodies are so compact. The new Kamerar QV-1 'M' is a spin off the current QV-1 View Finder but with a new baseplate designed to take up the extra distance. Here's a closer look in this video below.

This new baseplate is not just compatible with small cameras like the GH3, but should be seamless for the upcoming Pansonic GH4. Heck, it might even work with that new Nikon 1 V3 just announced. Here's a few images below on how the Kamerar QV-1 M LCD View Finder also mounts perfectly to another very popular camera - the Sony A7 / A7r.

With the extra space compensated for, other small compact cameras will have an easier time getting this LCD View Finder to mount up. [Sorry still won't work for the BMPCC Camera] The QV-1 Quick Release Base (QB-15) allows a simple way to add 15mm rails to a compact camera system. More info following the jump (click here).

Panasonic GH4 pre-Order

Emails are going out about Preorders for the new Panasonic's latest 4K capable mirrorless DMC-GH4. If you have not had the chance to secure your place in line for GH4, tonight at midnight retailers should be opening up the 'add to cart' option.

I would suggest using the 'notify' options in the websites below just to make sure you're getting notifications. This should be a pretty hot camera, and possibly a hard one to get a hold of after it starts shipping. If you're still on the fence, you may want to just go for the pre-order and hold your place in line. According to the actual ship date (late April / May) you'll have several weeks for a chance to cancel or modify your order - should you change your mind.

Here's a few links below to the items that should go live tonight via Adorama.
