Panasonic introduces an HD color viewfinder
featuring a newly developed 3.45-type LCD panel. Three times more pixels and easier focusing.
March 23, 2020
Osaka, Japan (March 23, 2020) – Panasonic Corporation releases to the market in April 2020 the AJ-CVF25GJ HD color viewfinder. Developed as a successor to the AG-CVF15G, the new AJ-CVF25GJ electronic viewfinder is designed to mount on a Panasonic shoulder-mounted ENG camera recorder*1 or studio camera*2.
The AJ-CVF25GJ is equipped with a newly developed 3.45-type LCD panel (approximately 2,760,000 dots) that offers higher contrast and brightness than the previous model and boasts three times higher pixel density, thus realizing more precise and easier focusing.
The AJ-CVF25GJ can be opened (flip-up type) at either of two positions, the lens barrel or the front side of the LCD panel, just like the previous model, so that the operator can view the LCD screen directly from either the back or side of the camera according to shooting situations. Furthermore, the image can be displayed in a reduced size (83%) automatically or manually when the eyepiece is opened.
The image adjustment dial and other controls are laid out in the same pattern as on a conventional viewfinder for ENG camcorders. The back tally (with slide cover switch) is provided at the location where only the operator can see. Furthermore, the AJ-CVF25GJ is provided newly with a yellow tally that can be used in live recording with a studio camera, thus ensuring a comfortable video recording experience.
