    Something spotted on Instagram, has there been any more info on this?

    Love the way it attaches to that second wire free zone on the side, totally makes sense why that is where it is now.
    Anyone have any more info/images?

    Couple of other evident things - I need to charge my phone and I need to go to bed.

    The problem with this position of eyepiece is that it creates a very front heavy handheld camera. On the epic I currently use a third party accessory to move the eyepiece as far forward as possible so that it actually hits the matte box and cannot move any further forward. This places the body squarely on the shoulder and creates a very well balanced camera on the shoulder. The no wires thing is cool for sure but it seems like it's just in the wrong place for a balanced camera.

    I'm sure there will be an adaptor to use it with a wire for more adjustment

    A great deal of people I know who shoot with RED cameras on their shoulders utilize longer 19mm rods to pass under the camera for matte box and hand grip support. The long rods protrude out and they use a 19mm rod to V-Mount or AB Mount plate that can move back and forth to properly achieve balance on the shoulder. I personally mount the shoulder pad on a dovetail as well and that allows for additional balance.

    Not really an issue in my mind. Never really has been. It's just a creative rigging conundrum that we all solve seemingly in similar ways.

    Will this work with Epics? Hopefully they've realized the market has changed and EVFs have gotten more affordable with great quality. If this costs more than 3000 I'll barf. Hopefully I don't barf.

    Are there any differences in sharpness and brightness compared to the previous OLED model or is this just a redesigned EVF?

    I really don't understand why anyone still does actual handheld when there is the easyrig. It's especially helpful for people like me who are super tall (6'4) and there's no way to shoot most stuff handheld.
