Thanks to a tweet this morning by michaschmidt we've found a new electronic viewfinder called the LCDVFe has been announced by Kinotehnik – due in the second quarter 2011.

LCDVFe is an universal electronic viewfinder for any camera which has a standard HDMI signal output.
Now you can hold or mount the camera in the very way you want. It really is as essential as it sounds.

  1. C’mon? Really? Lots of other places if using a cage or rig, and I’m sure something can be rigged to use the rod real estate pictured in the images to the right of the hot shoe and LCVDFE. I have a Zacuto Z-Finder but admit this is interesting, especially if it has a video out port to allow for monitoring via a video village or to another external monitor.

  3. Sadly, the BIG weakness of this product is the incredibly flimsy HDMI socket/video board on the 5DMKII – a couple of knocks and it will be game over !
