The ALEXA Mini LF MVF-2 Set from ARRI combines the multifunctional MVF-2 viewfinder unit with 1.15 and 1.5' CoaXpress viewfinder cables for connecting to your ALEXA Mini LF camera.
Offering simultaneous use of its high-resolution OLDED viewfinder and its 4" flip-out monitor, the ARRI ALEXA Mini LF Multi Viewfinder MVF-2 is truly a multifunctional unit. Two control dials (one on each surface of the monitor) enable the MVF-2 to be used on either side of the camera, providing the operator or assistant control as best suits your shot. Both the OLED EVF and the monitor feature upgrades from the MVF-1, including the ability to detach the eyepiece from the monitor unit.
The MVF-2's high-resolution, high-contrast monitor features the same OLED as the ALEXA LF EVF-2, providing matched views when using both cameras at the same time. The ARRICAM-style optical eyepiece incorporates a large exit pupil, providing more leeway for the operator's head movements while still viewing the image. A built-in eyepiece heater can be activated to defog your view when it's cold or muggy; this cable-less function will clear the eyepiece in all but the absolute coldest temperatures.
A new viewfinder cable incorporates keyless, easy-to-attach CoaXpress connectors; cables are available up to 33' long for remote control and viewing. The 4" monitor can be flipped out to the side, folded back with its screen visible, or folded flat for single-operator use. The MVF-2 monitor's tilting function and high daylight visibility provide convenient viewing in almost any situation.
Simultaneous operation enables the MVF-2 to provide a view for your camera assistant or director while the camera operator is using the OLED eyepiece. A single operator can use the monitor's camera control dial while viewing through the EVF or the monitor as they choose. Operator-suggested design improvements include a headphone jack for monitoring audio and a slide-out card for jotting down camera notes or actor/character names.
