Sony NEX Viewfinder for NEX-5R


Get the world’s first XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder. Made for the NEX-5R, you’ll enjoy high resolution (2359K dots) and with high contrast ratio (3,500:1) that provides for rich color and deep blacks. Use the electronic viewfinder’s eyepiece sensor for automatic display switching and for 100% field coverage with wide viewing angle. Read shooting related information for additional ease of use on the 0.5" screen and accommodate different shooting positions by smoothly tilting the screen from 0 to 90 degrees away from the camera body. Eyepiece Cup (FDA-EP10), protective cap for connection terminals and convenient protective carrying pouch included.

NOTE: This viewfinder only works with the Sony NEX-5R. It does not work with the original NEX-5. We only rent this viewfinder along with rental of an NEX-5R.

This viewfinder takes the Sony NEX-5n / 5R and fixes it’s biggest flaw, in my opinion. I already love the 5n, and the viewfinder makes it amazing. If you haven’t tried the 5R, rent it and this viewfinder and you may not go back. It provides a bright, accurate view of what you’re about to shoot. The automatic display switch works well and doesn’t randomly turn the rear LCD off when you go to press a button on the camera. If you’ve been hesitant in the past to try an electronic viewfinder, this is the one that will change your mind.
