Letus35 Viewfinder for Canon 5D Grip Carbon F... Overview

This Letus Hawk Viewfinder W/Riser for Canon 5D & 7D W/Battery Grip (Carbon Fiber) allows you to view the image on your camera's LCD display through a high-quality optical viewfinder with 2.75x magnification, providing a large, bright image for better focus and composition when shooting HD video.  It's designed to fit the Canon 5D Mark II or Canon 7D with a battery grip attached.

The Hawk viewfinder is completely custom designed, using 3 lenses in 2 groups for a totally flat image with no warping or loss of sharpness on the edges of the image. The lens is adjustable from +1.5 to -2.5 to accommodate near- and far-sighted users.

The Hawk attaches to your DSLR without any modifications to the camera--it includes a camera plate as a standard feature. The plate threads into the tripod mounting hole on the bottom of your camera and is adjustable in X, Y, and Z directions for compatibility with a full range of current and future DSLR cameras. The plate is threaded on the bottom so you can attach your existing quick release tripod plates, base plates, etc.

Mounting the Hawk using any articulating arm is also optionally possible. This allows you to have nearly unlimited mounting options for situations where standard mounting is difficult or impossible. An optional micro articulating arm custom-milled from stainless steel is also available.

Optics are fully coated with the same anti-fogging coatings used in the Letus relay lenses and 35mm adapters, for the best color fidelity while eliminating issues with fogging. 

A full range of optional Talon support rod systems include a quick release camera plate to take the place of the standard Hawk camera plate. This upgraded plate allows you to choose whether the Hawk viewfinder stays attached to your camera or to the Talon support rods. With this configuration, you can leave the Hawk on the support rods and quick-release your camera for taking still images through the DSLR's standard viewfinder. This is a great feature for those who need to switch from video to stills quickly.

question

The current LEtus Hawk DSLR viewfinders include the quick release plate as standard connection plate. Your description states that it is sold separately as an option. If this is a new item which one is included with B&H # LELTHKVFAL?
Asked by: Anonymous
This viewfinder comes with a standard Hawk camera plate. The Quick Release plate is available as a separate purchase option.

question

Will this work with a 645Z as the tripod spot is fairly far from the back screen?
Asked by: Nicolas S.
Unfortunately this will not be able to properly accommodate a Medium Format SLR due to its size/shape. This viewfinder was specifically designed for use with 35mm SLRs.
