Hi Marc,

Thanks for posting the photo's it looks a very interesting conversion. I'm off to Kenya in a 12 days time I'll decide after the trip and reviewing the images if I need to make a conversion to another viewfinder. As aside, I noticed that you had the standard mic attached. Do you use this as your main source of sound or do you use other mics?

Regards

Mick

Hi Mick,

At the moment I use the standard microfoon. Sometimes I use a sennheiser me67 (shootgun). My better mic is on another camera (Panasonic DVC200) at the moment.
What microfoon do you use?

Hi Marc,
I use an me66 for general use and the standard if useing a pag light when filming at night to avoid the mics shadow.

Marc,
Is that a monochrome (black and white) viewfinder? What exactly did the modification do?

Hi Bruce,

Yes it is a B&W viewfinder. The modification makes that the VF-information and the zebra is working correct. It is also switcheble from 4:3 to 16:9.

Marc,
So it's pretty much the same as the fu 1000, except 1/2' bigger and a little more resolution? I find the fu 1000 excellent for focusing;I used it on my XL2 for two years. I think the combination of the fu 1000 and something like the Marshall would be ideal for me.

Hi Charles,

the lens is a Sigma 50-500 mm photolens with a Nikkormount. I use a novoflex mount from the XL to the lens. The lens is full manual.

Viewing size in FU1000

Guys...I want to buy a FU 1000 and I haven't found the answer in the forum that I'm looking for ...


Basically...from what I've seen...it's an Ikegami viewfinder from my old HL-V55 camera. Identical !!

Anyhow...my concern is...how does it display 16x9 or HD for the H1 ?

My old viewfinder on the V55 was a 4x3 CRT. Is this different?

Thanks !!!

Bingo! It is in fact a re-branded Ike.

It's still a 4:3 CRT. It displays letterboxed 16:9. Hope this helps,

Hello,

Can anyone tell me what is the FU-1000 aspect ratio ? Is it 4/3 or 16/9 ?

I might buy one.

Thanks
