Bright high-end OLED viewfinder for 4K cameras, HD cameras, system cameras and ENG camcorders, with additional sub-LCD display
The Sony HDVF-EL30 is a 0.7-inch (viewable area, measured diagonally) full HD OLED viewfinder, which enables quick pixel response for tracking and focusing on moving objects.
This HD viewfinder delivers outstanding high contrast and a wide dynamic range thanks to the use of revolutionary OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) display technology.
With the Sony HDV-EL30's specially developed optical loupe, a high eye-point is possible. It allows operators to see a wider area of the picture if they stand back from the eye piece. The image displayed on the viewfinder can be down-scaled by menu or assignable button to avoid vignetting.
HD Viewfinder with sub-LCD display for direct monitoring
The HDVF-EL30 is equipped with an additional 3.5-inch, quarter HD (960 x 540) sub-LCD display for direct monitoring over a longer distance.
Using both sub-LCD panel and OLED displays, the HD viewfinder offers full operational flexibility, enabling a camera assistant to monitor the sub-LCD display while the camera operator uses the OLED one. A tally indicator and the camera number can be displayed on the sub-LCD panel. The supplied foldable hood avoids sunlight reflection.
Compatible with 4K cameras, HD cameras, system cameras, ENG cameras
The HDVF-EL30 viewfinder is compatible with a wide variety of cameras such as the F65 Sony motion picture cameras, 4K/HD system cameras and shoulder-type HD camcorders supporting the 20-pin round HDVF interface.
0.7-inch 1920 x 1080 OLED panel
OLED technology guarantees the highest contrast ratio, with no smear or blur. The HD viewfinder reproduces motion with high fidelity, making it easier for cameramen to focus HD and 4K images.

Additional display for monitoring, with tally and camera number displayed, plus foldable hood.
0.7-inch 1920 x 1080 full HD OLED panel
As the HD viewfinder uses advanced OLED (organic light emitting diode) panel technology, quick pixel response for tracking and focusing on moving objects is possible.
High contrast ratio
Thanks to the OLED panel, the Sony HD viewfinder achieves characteristics such as deep black colour reproduction and high-peak brightness, higher contrast and wider dynamic range.
Compatible with F65 digital motion picture cameras, 4K/HD system cameras and shoulder-type HD camcorders
The HD viewfinder can connect with a wide variety of cameras equipped with 20-pin HDVF interfaces, such as the top-end Sony F65 CineAlta premium 4K camera,4K system cameras like the Sony HDC-4300 and HD system cameras like the Sony HDC-2500, as well as shoulder-mount HD camcorders such as the PXW-X500 and PDW-850 camcorders.
Specially developed optical loupe
Thanks to a specially developed optical loupe, the HDVF-EL30's eye-point becomes longer than the existing portable OLED viewfinder, with lower picture distortion.
Effective assignable buttons
The HD viewfinder allows you to assign useful functions to the buttons, such as switching colour mode to black/white, focus magnification. In addition “HIEYE” function reduces/down-scales the image size to allow longer distance viewing.
