News: Manios Digital & Film to Showcase Kinotehnik Viewfinders
Manufacturer’s Popular LVDVFe Includes New Remote Control Feature; LCDVF Offers Diopter Option.
(Burbank, California--April 4, 2014) At NAB 2014, Manios Digital & Film will showcase the full product line from Kinotehnik, a world leader in the high quality camera accessories, including newly-upgraded versions of its popular LCDVF and LCDVFe viewfinders for DSLRs.
LCDVFe is a universal, production-style viewfinder that works with any camera that has HDMI signal output. It’s lightweight (12.3oz) and features a super sharp (800X480) 3-inch color display and live video processing. The device has been upgraded to add a remote control option via an external USB joystick. “We’re constantly looking for ways to make this viewfinder more ergonomic and convenient,” says Kinotehnik Sales & Marketing Director Lars-Erik Hion. “The remote option provides camera operators with a new layer of flexibility and freedom that further sets this product apart from the pack.”
Manios Digital & Film will be showing Kinotehnik products at NAB Stand C9539.
Kinotehnik’s LCDVF now includes diopter correction as a standard feature. Designed to allow photographers to take advantage of the video features of current generation DSLRs and compact cameras, LCDVF is a lightweight loupe that mounts around the camera’s LCD display via a universal magnetic mount and provides 200% (2x) magnification. The diopter correction option adds a metal thread that accommodates 37mm diopter adjustment lenses. “It’s a wonderful addition for users with less than perfect vision,” says Hion, “and we accomplished it without adding weight or compromising the ease of use that has made LCDVF so popular.”
Also on display will be Kinotehnik’s HD-SHI to HDMI Convertor, a low-cost accessory that allows LCDVFe to be used with cameras that lack HDMI output such as the BlackMagic Cinema Camera. The aluminum converter fits to 15-mm mounting hole so that it can be easily installed to any rig system.
