    I don't quite get this.

    Did you make an original design that you printed yourself? And now this has been picked up by Kinotehnik? Or are you part of Kinotehnik?

    As soon as the P4K got released I contacted them about a loupe, since I've been using a LCDVF since the Canon 5D mkII. They had no plans at the time. Then, a while back they contacted me to put me on their mailing list as they were developing a loupe now.

    But Kinotehnik has been making loupes a long time. Why did they need your design to get their thumbs out?

    The launch was planned to late September but has now been moved to late November, as they made some modifications. Do you know anything about that?

    None of this really matters.... as long as they get the loupe out. I'm just curious. I did write on their Facebook page that I'd much prefer if the finish of the loupe can be made identical to their other loupes, or the body of the camera. The images I've seen of this design has looked a bit too "shiny" and "sparkly/glittery".

    Please fill in the gaps of this story!

    So you're from Kinotehnik? I bought a LCDVF from you for my old 550D. It worked really well. Light and clear.

    Took a quick shot for comparison between the original LCDVF BM and its big brother BM5 achromatic eyepiece lenses:

    Some nice CNC machined components for the eyepiece:

    And some random stuff:

    Hi,
    Pricing around 170-180 USD.
    And it would use only optional diopter correction lenses to avoid cropping/obscuring the corners of the screen.

    The main "problem" right now is that the achromatic lens in the eyepiece might take the street price quite high once it arrives at BH for example...

    (Albeit I assume that then we can not talk about it on here anymore as it interferes with the forum rules.)

    Got some great feedback at IBC:

    I'd be interested as well. A loupe's cheap, effective, and helps stabilize as a third support point for the camera.

    Looks good, I think it could be marketed, their has been a lot of interest in a loupe/hood like this. I would be interested in one.
    Cheers

    started a topic LCDVF for BMPCC 4K / 6K

    LCDVF for BMPCC 4K / 6K

    Hello, my first post here after 6 years of reading

    But look what I just got from 3D printer!

    20190820_194030.jpg

    The optics in the eyepiece have a diameter of over 2" to accommodate a screen as big as 5"

    This is my original design BTW.

    All the best,
