The EVF4RVW has a comprehensive set of confidence features, including multiple waveform and vectorscope display options. Peaking is available in red or white, and various clip guides include color and a range of zebra patterns. Two types of false color displays translate exposure values into 6 different colors. Crop guide superimposes darkened bars on the screen to aide in framing shots that will be cropped in post, and the screen size can be changed for use with anamorphic lenses. Other features include pixel-to-pixel, screen flip and monochrome mode.

    Cineroid EVF4RVW reviews

    EVF4RVW with Retina Display is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Good BUT not I work in the professional film industry with lots of high quality and very expensive equipment (Film, RED, ALEXA etc). For my own personal low-budget projects I have recently been using the Nikon D800 in a Run & Gun style for small projects and documentaries. This EVF is extremely useful for focusing and getting spot on exposure with a camera that has limited dynamic range and relatively lousy lenses (for motion picture anyway - great for stills).I am happy with the price.I am extremely disappointed with the engineering as far as the strength of the body especially the 1/4-20 female jacks. It is like an afterthought. Attached to the body with very tiny screws (look at the picture carefully). If you tighten an Israeli arm or ball-head with just a little too much force those screws with shear right off. Secondly the battery plates are weak plastic and the Sony batteries I have been using are loose on the plate, I have to tape it up or use small bungees to keep it tight.Finally Cineroid customer service is NON-EXISTENT. I have been trying for months, I cannot find the battery plates anywhere and they have basically told me good luck (chum).Well Good luck to you folks out there. The product has amazing potential and I like it very much except for those annoying issues.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great viewfinder I was testing the Alphatron EVF-035W-3G Electronic Viewfinder and the Cineroid EVF4RVW with Retina Display and I ended up to buy the Cineroid because of his features and size. The Alphatron is a great Viewfinder, but two of them that I ordered broke in the first week. The Cineroid feels like well made viewfinder that will last a long time. The only thing that I don't like is the Waveform and Vectorscope Display. It shows 3 different Waveforms and I would rather have just one that I could select. Also a big plus is, that it come with a lot of batterie mounting options. So at the end the Cineroid works a little bit better for me then the Alphatron, but there almost on the same level.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing focus peaking; finally died 2 years 11 months later. PROS: -Amazing focus peaking! Used to verify focus on dozens of shoots since bought in April 2014. -Features waveforms; SDI; various battery mounts. -Small, but sharp screen. CONS: -Small screen. Have to be pretty much right up on it to see the details. -Screw on 1/4-20 mount isn't the most stable -Battery plates are weak point - battery can get dislodged easily. -Possible weak connection via SDI (screen will blank out at random sometimes then re-appear) -Monitor finally died 2y11mon after purchase (and don't expect any customer service from them - they are overseas).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from best evf? I bought this EVF based on specs which are very good. BUT, fit and finish of the unit is terrible! The plastic clip together shade, IMO would not last a day of shooting. I found the retina display nice but the optics on the finder cheap and the adjustment poorly made. The finder has lots of features like wave and vector scopes, that good if you need it. Then there is mounting it,. All that is include is a cheap ball head. I ended up buying the Kinotehnik LCDVFe finder because although the Cineroid had better features, the Kinotehnik LCDVFe mounting to the camera is brilliant and the image was plenty good to focus by. another factor was that the Cineroid used 3.5watts compared to 1.5 for the Kinoteknic. I do miss the SDI input but most of the cameras that need a EVF have HDMI anyway and the cameras that only have SDI have great viewfinders like the Alexa.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very versatile and useful I'm a freelance cinematographer and use this EVF both on my personal camera and on nicer rental cameras. I love its versatility in terms of inputs (HDMI and SDI), and the plethora of battery plates available, and find that features such as peaking, waveform, and pixel to pixel make it much easier to focus and judge exposure during run and gun situations. My only gripe with this EVF so far is that the add-on bits such as the battery plates and loupe feel a bit cheap and plasticky for a purchase of this price, but I have experience with some other EVFs in the same price range and have similar complaints about them as well. All in all, quite satisfied with this investment.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good ... or not Delivers great image, the vector scope, focus peak, audio levels and other tool are very helpful. What i didn't like as many others have said is the quality of the material. Very cheap plastic and the locking system sucks, it breaks quickly and easy. I had a problem with the LCD because it was exposed to sun and i tried to call costumer service and they never answer, either phone or email. I wish i bought the alphatron.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid EVF Performer I use this with a BMCC camera via HD-SDI and it works very well. Be warned that the other HD-SDI Cineroid EVF that is less expensive (I think $) doesn't work with the BMCC as it won't accept 1080p signals - but this one does. The screen is sharp and the various battery options are nice, too. I'm using the Sony NP-F570 and two of them will make it almost all day. The menu is detailed and gives you a lot of control, but it's look and feel are a bit dated IMO. And the overall look of the EVF is a bit clumsy also, but it's performance has been good so far. Make sure you have a Noga arm or a cage with EVF mount or similar. I considered the Alphatron as well, but it's $more and so I went with this one and I'd recommend it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a lot of choices Yes its very ugly but the scopes and Retina display are very useful and the reason I purchased its EVF must have with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera or sdi camera's. includes lots of powering options.
