Canon Working on Hybrid Viewfinder for EOS Cinema Camera

Recent Patent suggest that Canon is planning to introduce Mirrors inside the Canon EOS Cinema Series so, they can also add a optical viewfinder wrapped over the EVF. So, you can get both view at a time, larger mirrored OVF view  as well as EVF view.

Understanding The Canon Hybrid EVF Patent

What is Canon actually trying to do, they want to give you more display area by adding a extra layer of optical viewfinder wrapped around corners of EVF. They won’t going to overlap each other, the Mirror will have a cut out around the sensor to cover up the left-over area of the sensor. So when you are looking through the viewfinder

From Mirrorless to SLT – EOS Lineup Journey

Canon latest patent suggest that they are working on a hybrid optical viewfinder for the Canon EOS cinema lineup. The Canon EOS cinema lineup is mirrorless, that is they don’t have mirror inside as of DSLR cameras. By the way despite of having no mirror inside their system the flange distance remains same (Canon EOS Cinema EF Mount Version ) so they can easily adapt the Canon EF Mount lenses without altering the focal length or loosing any feature.

By adding a Fixed Mirror for sure the EOS Cinema lineup will lose their Mirrorless status for sure. And eventually they will going to become a SLT camera with fixed Mirror inside.

Flange distance isn’t a issue , since they are designed to use EF Mount / DSLR lenses.

SLT system type mirror – fixed and non movable

Yes the mirror Canon will going to introduce is not a movable one as we have seen in the DSLR. The mirror inside a cinema EOS lineup will always going to remain fixed at a certain point, So the user can get uninterrupted view of what they are recording.

Image / Video Quality will remain unaffacted, Since the fixed Mirror isn’t covering up the sensor. So literally we will not going to see any change in the Video quality of the camera.

The Canon EOS in my lineup doesn’t actually need a hybrid viewfinder

But why Canon is trying to add a mirror inside the cinema EOS series. well I have seen professional cinematographers those who never look through the viewfinder while creating a movie or short film, they always prefer external display in their work.
