Re: OVF with HUD would be nice

If auto focus points can be projected, I expect other things can.

This is the point of a forum-to speculate-and be educated.

The way it is on K-1 or K-3 III does not allow for showing some random graphics over the OVF. It is only turning black or transparent certain predefined symbols or lines. And it is hard to see as it only blocks light. It does not emit light.

I would like if this layer was rather replaced with a transparent OLED. But I admit, I do not know how transparent those are. But .. having a small transparent OLED screen over the whole OVF would allow you to project anything, even magnified view or colored AF points or AF box around an eye etc. .. but it think that this technology still needs more development.
