Epson has confirmed the full specification of its next generation electronic viewfinder (EVF), as mass production of the 1024x768-pixel LCD panel gets underway.
Aimed for use by manufacturers of ‘mid to high-end’ interchangeable-lens cameras, the Ultimicron screen measures 0.48in, diagonally, features an RGB colour filter, and boasts a total resolution of 2.36 million dots.
Epson is known to provide EVFs for the Olympus OM-D E-M5, for example.
The new EVF was first unveiled at last year’s photokina trade show in Cologne (see AP’s issue dated 20 October 2012).
