The missing link in the hybrid era

LCDVF turns your video enabled DSLR LCD screen into a huge electronic viewfinder for precise image evaluation.

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 fall 2013, LCDVF introduced LCDVF BM model for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, available worldwide from 1. November 2013. LCDVF BM will also have a diopter correction option as it comes with metal thread that takes in optional 37mm diopter adjustment lenses.

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.

Simple and safe mounting

The search for a perfect mounting option eventually led us to creating universal magnetic interface that allows rapid mounting and demounting without any wear and tear.

All you need to do is apply adhesive-covered ultra-sleek metal frame to your camera body and from there on, it’s click-on, click-off: simple and safe.

LCDVF 4N, specific to Nikon D800 and D800E cameras, utilizes slightly different mounting though - the metal frame is not glue-on but is housed in a plastic clip-on frame that attaches to the camera in the exact same way as it's original screen protector.

I've been using the LCDVF for about a year now and it has gone around the world - literally - when I shot for Semester at Sea the last four months of 2010. There is absolutely NO WAY I could have shot the footage I did without the LCDVF, especially in the global conditions from African heat to Asian rain that I experienced. Big hurrah to LCDVF. Looking forward to hearing more about the LCDVFE.
