16x9 eyecup?

A customer called me today about a product
that is installed over the rear eyecup... to
help with viewing Anamorphic 16x9 video.

I have no idea what he was talking about.

Any Ideas?

Century Precision Optics introduced it at DV Expo last year (December?) It is basically an optical anamorphic lens that installs over the viewfinder, and then you mount the eyecup onto it. It optically de-squeezes the image in the viewfinder. They announced a MSRP of $395.

Century also has a great 16x9 viewer that slips over the flip-out LCD. Turns the LCD's "spaghetti western" into the proper 16x9 aspect when shooting widescreen with an anamorphic.

Thing is, they make it for 2.5" screens. I was trying to get them to do one large enough to fit on the DVX flip-out LCD.

interesting thread...i love the concept of the 16x9 squeeze in my dvx-100a, i just don't relish dragging my 14" sony monitor around that does 16x9 mode...

a viewfinder and/or lcd adaptor that did this would change everything.
