5" LCDVF adapted to the Chronos?
« on: April 09, 2021, 03:27:42 AM »
Looking at options to allow run and gun with the camera I came across this 5" LCD viewfinder for the Blackmagic PCC 4k and 6k that may fit the Chronos.

Wondering if the dimensions will fit the Chronos as it looks a bit too wide and if anyone has experience with it? 

I did find an old thread with a Grid 5 viewfinder that had some success but doesn't look like an optimal solution as it needs modifications. https://forum.krontech.ca/index.php?topic=134.msg1123#msg1123

I believe this accessory if done well could be a killer part of the Chronos kit.   :o

Hi, I use the Kinotehnik viewfinder since last year. It works realy fine. A smal iron  frame is simply attached with adhesive tape to the black screen frame.

Thanks, I will have to bite the bullet and order it.  I find that the easy detachment is good because that way you can't leave it in place if on a wrist lanyard so the Loupe Sun Screen Burn problem is avoided.  ;D
