        Comments about Alphatron Broadcast Electronics Electronic Viewfinder EVF-035W-3G:

        I held out on purchasing this for my FS700 for too long. I have no complaints with this product at all. It's super sharp and has all of the bells and whistles you can ask for. I especially like the little waveform monitor you can have on in the corner. The one bit of past criticism about this EVF was how it you left the lens shutter open outside on a sunny day, it would burn the LED in a matter of seconds. Alphatron has remedied this by adding a special lens that prevents this from happening. It's the best EVF out there, hands down!

        Comments about Alphatron Broadcast Electronics Electronic Viewfinder EVF-035W-3G:

        One of the best EVFs I've owned.

        Pros:
        -Amazing display.
        -Great features
        -Plenty of custom options
        -SDI/HDMI compatible.
        -Lightweight (without battery, P-Tap power supply)
        -Sun-protected in case you forget to close the shutter.

        Cons:
        -Larger than expected- not much of a con for me, but compact seems to be the trend and it could be for some.
        -I find the button arrangement on the side odd, seeing as "2" is placed above "1", and "4" above "3"...if that doesn't make sense, look at the photos.

        But I'm nitpicking at this point, it functions wonderfully!

            its mainly for the Sony F5, and compare with the sony VF, it's very close, and the image quality is hard to tell the difference but at 35%-40% of the price. it's a great buy!!

            Comments about Alphatron Broadcast Electronics Electronic Viewfinder EVF-035W-3G:

            I have used this with a Canon C-300 and Canon 5D Mark III.The resolution is what I needed. It's 1/4 of a 1920x1080 signal.I was disappointed with the diopter. No one else mentioned this problem. I need reading glasses close up, but only a 1.5. But this viewfinder diopter did not allow me to focus on the screen. Even the cheapest viewfinders allow this. My solution was to remove a lens from reading glassess and affix it in front of their lens. Presto! It works! Can Alphatron produce this viewfinder with different lenses? Mine was a $10 fix but still annoying.I totally appreciate the HDSDI input. This is realtime with no lag. The HDMI input has a bit of lag like any HDMI. I really think they got cheap on the HDMI mini connectors. Why not just use the full size HDMI connector? I do like the pass through from HDMI to HDSDI. This allows me to use my broadcast production monitor with my 5D Mark III.The menus could use further refining.Avoid buying the Alphatron mount. It worked fine until it broke. A major design error...I really like the corner Waveform Monitor. The Vector scope is of limited use at this size. But overall a useful feature.Having said all of this, it is the closest thing to the viewfinder on my PMW-350-Still the best.My 4 stars is because it is still the best third party EVF as of May, 2013.
