The VF Prime PRO DSLR Viewfinder from IndiPRO Tools is an advacement from the original VF Prime and sports a newly designed camera baseplate that, once mounted, allows the viewfinder to be attached right up against the LCD of the camera. Meaning you will never again have to add a semi-permanent adhesive frame onto the camera body.
Since most DSLR LCD screens are only a few inches across, and trying to hold the camera in front of you while pulling focus and framing a shot can lead to shaky footage. When mounted over the camer's LCD screen, the VF Prime PRO introduces stability by providing another point of contact with the body. Holding the eyepiece up to the eye not only helps stabilize the camera, it eliminates glare which makes it easier to focus and frame shots. And for those of us with less than perfect eyesight, the 2.75x focusable magnification makes shooting on a DSLR a lot easier!
In addition to the baseplate, the VF Prime PRO's housing is now made from forged aluminum which is lighter than other heavy duty materials, yet still strong and durable. This is especially important to filmmakers who are constantly packaging, unpacking, assembling and shooting in less forgiving environments.
Creating a 1920 x 1080p HD film from a tiny 3.0" screen can hinder filmmakers when framing their scenes, not to mention they may also be juggling focus, composition, lighting, and just holding the DSLR at the same time. By attaching the VF Prime to the DSLR, filmmakers add another point of contact to their body, reducing camera shake and magnifying their camera's small LCD by 2.75 times its normal size--for a better field of vision
The VF Prime was developed to give filmmakers the capability to adjust focus to +1.5 to -2.5 diopters which is especially beneficial to filmmakers who wear glasses. Filmmakers can remove their glasses and comfortably place their eye up against the soft rubber eyecup of the viewfinder--creating a seal that blocks all external light
Optical Grade Lenses
Made from optical grade polycarbonate, which minimizes both scratching and fogging, the VF Prime's glass lenses are less prone to scratching and are lighter so as not to throw off the balance of the camera
