Tech Lending Program: Kinotehnik LCDVF3C Viewfinder

Kinotehik LCDVF Viewfinder

What is the Kinotehnik LCDVF Viewfinder?

"LCDVF is the missing link of the hybrid "photovideography" era. It is an essential accessory that enables today’s photographers to take advantage of the video features of the new generation DSLR cameras like Canon 5D MKIII, Nikon D800 and many others. It’s like viewing a 42" screen from 140cm (4.6 feet).

In the heart of the LCDVF is an achromatic lens pair that consist of two optical components vacuum-cemented together to form an achromatic doublet which is computer optimized to correct for on-axis spherical and chromatic aberrations. Similar quality of optics is rarely to be seen in even professional broadcast equipment. "
