High Resolution Color Viewfinder
Our high resolution Color Viewfinder provides a large, high definition picture so you don't have to wait until after shooting to enjoy the view. Moreover, images are clearer and more natural thanks to densely packed pixels, and color makes it easier for you to identify your video subject in busy surroundings.
