Patent: Canon Auto Switching Hybrid OVF and EVF
By| November 8, 2016
A patent showing a hybrid optical viewfinder and electronic viewfinder from Canon has appeared. I’m going off the Google translation of the patent, but if anyone can translate the Japanese a bit better, we’d appreciate hearing from you.
Patent Publication No. 2016-173443 (Google translated)
- Published 2016.9.29
- Filing date 2015.3.17
- Provided with the OVF and EVF
- Trackable AF
- It switched to the EVF and deviates from the effective range of the AF sensor
Could this be something we see introduced in a new EOS Rebel DSLR?
