Alphatron EVF035 Electronic Viewfinder Review Coming!

Alphatron EVF-035W on PMW-F3

DHL delivered a nice box on Friday,just in time for the long Jubilee weekend. In that box was one of the long awaited Alphatron EVF-035W¬†viewfinders. I had a play with a pre production unit at NAB and I was really very impressed. The EVF uses the same screen as the iPhone 4s and as a result it is higher resolution than the current Zacuto and Cineroid EVF’s. It has a full range of markers, focus aids and exposure aids. It’s is also very nicely built. I’m preparing a full review which should go online later in the week. In the mean time here are a few pictures of it on my F3 configured for ENG with a Canon 2/3″ B4 zoom lens via the MTF B4 adapter.

I’m using a GenusTech F3 top cheese plate with a home made viewfinder bracket to mount the EVF. With this mount I can slide the EVF forwards and back as well as side to side, yet unlike a noga arm it won’t sag or droop and the viewfinders horizon matches the cameras, so no wonky shots.

  1. Hi Alister
    Looking forward to your review of what looks to be a great piece of kit. Would be particularly interested in seeing what universal mounting options there are to enable it to be used on other cameras. I would be looking to use it with anything that has an HD SDI out and an average viewfinder. Also what is the latitude for adjustment on the dioptre? I find that many viewfinders are quite limited so that for wearers of spectacles a replacement dioptre is needed, which are not always readily available.
    Best wishes,

    1. I’ll be sure to look at the diopter adjustment. I’m getting a little Myopic so it’s important to me too.
