I love this thing


from Encinitas, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I upgraded from the VF-2, which already was one of the best electronic viewfinders - but the VF-4 is definitely an upgrade. The image is extremely clear and large. The magnifier works well even though I wear glasses - good "eye relief" means I don't need to get really close to have a wide field of view. Plus, it has the locking feature, so won't fall off like the VF-2. I'm a happy camper.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  is this compatible with the black magic pocket cinema camera ?
TIMOTHY A  Sorry, I have no idea if it works for a pocket camera. It is an invaluable aid on my EPL5 once you get the camera programed to accept the device. It allows pics in bright light situations and more precise focusing of certain lenses.
Shopper  Is this compatible with the new Leica M type 240??? Can someone try?
LINDA N  The VF-4is compatible with only Olympus camera bodies. Most of the bodies require a firmware update to utilize the new finder, but it is worth the time and effort as this is a very fine accessory.
