An eye for an eye.

Shipping from April 25th, the Gratical Eye is something I’ve been waiting a long time for, to pair with cameras like the Panasonic GH4, Canon 1D C and Sony A7S II – a super compact EVF which rivals the beautiful new Leica SL EVF for image quality. It features a very large 0.61″ panel (similar to the Leica SL’s 0.66″ EVF) and packs 5 million dot resolution versus the 4.4 million of the Leica SL’s.

Turn your Sony NEX 5N into a mini FS100 with Zacuto EVF and Canon lens adapter

Mini FS100

The NEX 5N is a tiny camera but it starts to really look the part when you add a chunky lens and monitor. The only problem is how do you mount a large lens to a small camera without damaging the mount, and how do you mount a monitor without a hotshoe or a rig?

Zacuto EVF Flip Review

Buy the Zacuto EVF Flip through this link and support EOSHD.com!

The Zacuto EVF is the first new generation DSLR accessory that is truly killer. It benefits DSLR ergonomics so much and monitoring is a different world with it. Peaking, zebras, anamorphic, you name it. Also with the latest firmware it has audio monitoring via the HDMI loop through and on-screen levels. That is good news for the future (at the moment DSLRs don’t output audio whilst recording) and it means any absence of a headphone jack on future DSLRs won’t even matter.

GH3 to have emphasis on low light performance, new EVF technologies

GH2 and Ichiro Kitao of Panasonic

Panasonic are in talks with Epson to provide cutting edge new display technology for the EVF in the GH3. The news comes from a recent interview with Panasonic’s Ichiro Kitao at the launch of the GF3. It was a change of tone from last year when Panasonic spoke of the GH2 as a niche camera.
