The Kinotehnik LCDVFe – a short review of the latest HDMI Electronic viewfinder

By technical Editor Matt Allard:

Kinotehnik EFV Review from Matthew Allard on Vimeo.

I first saw the Kinotehnik EVF at NAB and was immediately drawn to it. There were plenty of other EVFs at the show but for me it comes down to how it works out in the field. In this review I will go into the good, the bad and why I choose to use this particular EVF on my cameras.

If there is anything further that you would like to know just ask me or go to for more information.

    Hi Matt,

    Thank’s for your review on the KInotehnik EVF. Kinotehnik mentions as one of the features, jitter free panning, what I think is important feature.

    Is this also your expierence with the view finder in the real world?

    Thank you in advance!
