Cineroid EVF4CSE Overview

  • 1Description

The Cineroid EVF4CSE Electronic Viewfinder with SDI Input / Loop-Through Output offers an eyepiece view or an LCD view. The eyepiece/optical loupe can be flipped up out of the way much like a traditional ENG viewfinder, or detached completely to reveal a 3.2" LCD with an 800 x 480 resolution. A built-in adjustable diopter and removable extension frame allows you to use the EVF even without having perfect eyesight.

The SDI input and loop-through SDI output allows you to feed the EVF, and send the unmodified signal downstream to an optional director's viewfinder, video village, or other display / recorder. The EVF supports a variety of focus and exposure tools, including two forms of peaking, false color, crop guide, pixel-to-pixel mapping, and image flip. A headphone jack and built-in speaker allow you to monitor audio, and a 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole allows you to mount the EVF to your camera using optional articulating arms. The EVF4CSE is powered by optional Cannon LP-E6 batteries, or from an optional external power supply, that provides 6 to 17 VDC. The USB port is for firmware updates.

Peaking highlights the sharpest (most in focus) areas of the image with a color outline. The EVF4CSE features two modes. Red mode highlights the in focus areas in red, while the sharpness mode outlines in white.
Clip Guide
There are three clip guide modes, color, zebra and both in combination. Color mode provides a colored wash to overexposed areas, while zebra can be set to fixed or moving lines and can display at 3, 5, 8, 11% above or below the trigger point.
False Color
The False Color feature provides under/over luminance warning by presenting the image as a series of color values representing exposure.
Crop Guide
Darkens portions of the viewing area to help frame a shot in accordance with what it will look like when later cropped to be viewed in different aspect ratios.
Pixel to Pixel Mapping
1:1 pixel-to-pixel mapping allows you to look at sections of your image without any scaling, so you can see the actual detail and not be fooled by scaling artifacts.
Monochrome (Black and White)
Displays an image in grayscale.
Audio Level
Displays on screen the audio levels captured. (A speaker and headphone jack are available for monitoring captured audio.)
Screen Flip
Rotates an image in various ways to support different vertical and horizontal mounting options.
Custom Keys
The EVF4CSE has quick-access buttons that the above features can be programmed into.

    Cineroid EVF4CSE Reviews

    EVF4CSE Electronic Viewfinder with SDI Input / Loop-Through Output is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great with BMPC-4K and BMCC cameras I use a EVF4CSE with a BMPC-4K camera. A detailed review of the EVF is on my blog: If B&H doesn't allow links, here are excerpts from my review: ... when a video camera is shoulder-mounted or handheld, or used outdoors in daylight ... an electronic viewfinder (EVF) ... is immune to glare & reflections ... it also helps steady handheld/shoulder shots since it makes an additional physical point of contact with your head ... ... relatively lower-priced EVFs sacrifice video image & build quality and in some cases convenience, too, when you consider mounting, connection and power options. ... To mount, connect, and power the Cineroid EVF: I bought an inexpensive Varavon 7 magic arm and Slik DQ10 QR plate to mount the EVF; a Wooden Camera 10 coiled SDI cable; Watson Canon DSLR-type battery & charger; and Cineroid d-tap power cable. Total price of $578 US from B&H Photo Video in NYC with free shipping within the US. ... The EVF screen is 800 x 480 pixel resolution, same as the BMPC-4K & BMCC built-in LCDs. The Cineroid screen isn't OLED or full HD, but for a $399 EVF it's a huge improvement compared to attempting to use a BMPC-4K or BMCC built-in LCD in daylight! ... ... properly adjusted, the Cineroid EVF allows accurate focus & exposure using a combination of the EVF's and camera's screen-overlay tools. The Cineroid EVF menu system is odd but quite flexible ... I was able to adjust it for BMPC-4K video and film monitoring output modes. ... EVF settings can be saved into multiple memory banks for recall as needed. ... A bonus for BMPC-4K & BMCC users: The EVF headphone output is less-noisy than the cameras' built-in headphone signal! ... The EVF case is all-plastic & thin. Its 1/4-20 thread mount isn't very strong. To address this I glued (!) the small DQ10 QR plate to the bottom of the EVF, blocking the EVF's USB firmware update port, but can be removed ...
