Comprehensive HMD Comparison Coming...

Dear all,

I have followed this and previous threads about the use of head mounted displays (HMDs) as a viewfinder replacement with great interest.

I have found a distributor who is willing to send me a variety of models for testing. It isn't clear how many different models I'll get, but it will surely be the Olympus FMD-700 and the DaeYang Cy-Visor DH4400VP (2D). I am planning to do comprehensive comparisons and write the whole thing up. Maybe Chris will want to post it on the site when it's all done...

I just wanted to inform you that this is cooking, but don't expect any results before mid-February at the earliest. I don't even know yet when I'll be getting the demo units.

However, I'd like to solicit your input regarding the test procedure. What particular features would you like to see compared? I already have a good idea of what I want to do, but maybe some of the more experienced video folks could provide me with good input. Particularly, reliable testing procedures for focussing would be highly appreciated (since this is the main incentive for using HMDs, IMO).

Regards,

Ron

Chris: please delete this thread!

Ooops, I messed up! I meant to post this as a reply to the "video glasses with XL1" thread. I already added it there.

Chris, could you please delete this thread?

TIA,

Ron
