3:2 LCD Viewfinder compatibility
May 26, 2011

There are some cheap LCD viewfinders on the web, around 30-40 $ but they are all 4:3 or 3:2, no 16:9.

The only one 16:9 is the LCDVF which costs around 130$.

So, does anyone have a 3:2 one?
If yes, does it crop the display?

I would try this. It folds up nicely and works great:

Thanks for the suggestion, but I was already aware of it.

Size is not a problem for me (it's for shooting video with a DIY rig, so it will be big anyway).

I do care much more of having it working the correct way like a videocam, so putting the eye on it and having no light coming from outside.

What I need to know is just if a 3 inch 3:2 viewfinder is ok or if I have to go for the LCDVF 16:9.
