The things you find! Spotted this little number when trawling for new gear. Was not even looking for an EVF but be damned if one does not pop up. Well it is an existing 5.6″ VFM-056W monitor from TV Logic with a flip up 5.6″ Hoodman loupe on it. Did not even know Hoodman made a 5.6″ number.
But wait that’s not an EVF I hear you say. Really? Think about the other EVF’s on the market that use a flip design. Are they not just small monitors with a magnifying glass that allow you to zoom in on the monitors screen lines anyway?
