Why is EVF is the future...
Aug 29, 2011

and the rest is stuck at 2004...a great read

"The real story, besides the translucent mirror, is all about the EVF and that's where the revolution exists. What we're talking about here is a 2.4 megapixel OLED screen with ultra fast refresh times. This is at least a generation beyond the good work Olympus has done on the VF-2. While most of the old timers who grew up with luxuriously bright prism finders will howl in derision the reality is that a superbly made EVF has many advantages. Push one button to zoom in for critical manual focus. Preview all kinds of filter and balancing effects. Shoot movies with your eye on the finder (instead of doing the soccer mom, club nerd, iphone-aholic, full arm extension idiot camera hold). When you couple a great finder with no moving mirror you have a camera that's much cheaper to fabricate and that's the motivation for camera makers. If it's well implemented all the "upgrade" features of electronic viewfinders are what makes it wonderful for us.

Now all that remains is to watch Canon and Nikon play catch up with Sony."
