Cineroid EVF4CHE overview

  • 1Description

The Cineroid EVF4CHE Electronic Viewfinder with HDMI 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 HDMI input and loop-through HDMI 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 EVF4CHE 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 EVF4CHE 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 EVF4CHE has quick-access buttons that the above features can be programmed into.

    Cineroid EVF4CHE reviews

    EVF4CHE Electronic Viewfinder with HDMI Input / Loop-Through Output is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned I have returned this EVF. I recommend checking the Cineroid online forum before buying it. I wish I did. Like many others, the LCD of my EVF turned black when I tried to upgrade the firmware. The device became totally unusable. Cineroid offers no support at all. Even if it had worked as expected, I would not recommend this product. The plastic is cheap. It feels very fragile and not durable. Fixations also feel weak. The flipping loop itself is a bit loose. The LCD display is not so good. Menus are hard to navigate.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great EVF Really pleased with the results I'm getting from this EVF. Overall it's a great EVF. Here's a breakdown of my thoughts: Cons: - Plastic build. Doesn't feel as solid as I would like, but has held together fine. - Monitors - I know this may depend on the type of camera you use, but it would be nice to have a separate built in histogram and vectorscope, along with some LUT options. Pros: - Fantastic quality image - Affordable price - Super light. - Decent menu layout Overall, I would recommend this EVF.
