I am still wishing for a hybrid viewfinder. What I mean is a viewfinder that can be used for video... I guess only few people care.
I just dont see how it's possible. You have to lock the mirror up to shoot. Only way to do it is mirrorless.
Right, you would need an OLED screen mounted in a way that if turned on when the mirror is away it could get its light through the viewfinder. I should try to patent this idea.
Btw - all the people saying the photography portion cannot be improved. I disagree. I think the dynamic range could still get an improvement. You know dark areas and bright sky. Way to go in this regard.
Why would it need to get light through the viewfinder? OLED panels are self illuminating. They don't require a backlight source like an LCD panel.
But anyway… I would like to see high quality EVF's on DSLR's. The optical VF's on still cams, even on 5D series and 1D series cameras, are almost microscopic in comparison to what I'm used to on the motion side. I believe my color LCD EVF's on on my VariCam's are 3" panels and the Alphatron on my C300 is 3.5". And the newer OLED EVF's(like on the Sony F/5 and 55 and Panny's new VariCam and the new Zacuto Graticle) could be adapted to stills use(they are less than 1" and are more highly magnified than the larger LCD's and still beautiful) and make everyones life much easier and better. They could even be articulated like we have on the motion side so you wouldn't need an angle finder or have to use the rear panel. Yes, you would have to have power to look through it, but if you haven't used a quality EVF, you don't know what you're missing. I've had 5 series still cams(ii & iii) for almost six years and been shooting TV with EVF's for over 17. I'll take a high quality EVF any day of the week(especially the newer color flat panel tech over our old 1.5"-2" B&W tubes) when I actually need to see and focus(remember, we're focusing everything manually).
