Overview

Bright high-end OLED viewfinder for 4K/HD system cameras and camcorders, with additional sub-LCD display
The HDVF-EL30 is a 0.7-inch (viewable area, measured diagonally) full HD OLED viewfinder, which enables quick pixel response for tracking and focusing on moving objects. It delivers outstanding high contrast and a wide dynamic range thanks to the use of revolutionary Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display technology.

With its specially developed optical loupe, a high eye-point is possible .It allows operators to see a wider area of the picture if they stand back from the eye piece. The image displayed on the viewfinder can be downscaled by menu or assignable button to avoid vignetting.

The HDVF-EL30 is equipped with an additional 3.5-inch, quarter HD (960 x 540) sub-LCD display for direct monitoring over a longer distance. Using both sub-LCD panel and OLED displays, offers full operational flexibility enabling a camera assistant to monitor the sub-LCD display while the camera operator uses the OLED one. A tally indicator and the camera number can be displayed on the sub-LCD panel. The supplied foldable hood avoids sunlight reflection.

The HDVF-EL30 viewfinder is compatible with a wide variety of cameras such as the F65 Sony motion picture cameras, 4K/HD system cameras and shoulder-type HD camcorders supporting the 20pin round HDVF interface.

Features

0.7-inch 1920 x 1080 full HD Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) panel
As the viewfinder adopts advanced organic light emitting diode panel technology, quick pixel response for tracking and focusing on moving objects is possible.
High contrast ratio
Thanks to the OLED panel, characteristics such as deep black colour reproduction and high-peak brightness, higher contrast and wider dynamic range are achieved.
Compatible with F65 digital motion picture cameras, 4K/HD system cameras and shoulder-type HD camcorders
The viewfinder can connect with a wide variety of cameras equipped with 20-pin HDVF interfaces (such as the top-end F65 CineAlta premium 4K camera), 4K/HD system cameras (such as the HDC-4300 three 2/3-inch 4K/HD system camera), HD system cameras (such as the HDC-2500 multi-format system camera), and shoulder-type of HD camcorders (such as the PXW-X500 and PDW-850 camcorders).
Specially developed optical loupe
Thanks to a specially developed optical loupe, the eye-point becomes longer than the existing portable OLED viewfinder with lower picture distortion.
Effective assignable buttons
The viewfinder allows you to assign useful functions to the buttons, such as switching colour mode to black/white, focus magnification. In addition “HIEYE” function reduces/downscales the image size to allow longer distance viewing.
