The DXF-51 5" monochrome studio viewfinder offers 650 lines of resolution. When connected to a 16:9 aspect camera, the viewfinder will automatically switch the aspect ratio from 4:3 to 16:9.

The 4:3 CRT of the DXF-51 automatically switches between 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios, depending on the active aspect ratio of the connected camera.
