Hi there, I am a professional photog looking to further a personal project involving long exposures. I would like to track my subject throughout the exposure. Currently, viewfinder blackout does not allow me to maintain visual contact with my subject as I expose for 1 second or longer.

Does anyone know of an SLR that does not have any viewfinder blackout? I would greatly appreciate any recommendations.

Thank you!

Interesting. M4/3s gets close, with live bulb refreshing the screen every 0.5s, but I doubt that's sufficient.

I think the Red Dot Sight, posted above may be the best option.

Thanks, the sights may be the only option at this time. In the project for which i am seeking this solution, both subject and camera are in motion, so full time visual is critical for accurate tracking and registration during the long exposures.
