NEW – Smartfinder Pro
The Smartfinder Pro is a new electronical Director’s Viewfinder for lenses from S35 to Full Format and up to 65mm format. The Smartfinder Pro uses our UMS Universal Mount System, which includes ARRI LPL, XPL and PL.
He is designed around the iPhone 8+ and uses the UMS Universal Mount System that allows both LPL and PL lenses to be evaluated without a camera or sensor. The iOS app, built specifically for this purpose, offers predefined settings and includes focus capabilities and aperture information of the lenses from more than 50 different lens manufacturers.
The image is gathered on a 62mm ∅ groundglass, which is slightly larger than the image area of an ARRI Alexa 65. Attach an iPhone behind the groundglass. The iPhone camera focuses through 4 IB/E optical elements onto the groundglass, and view the image on the screen of your iPhone 8+. The Smartfinder’s handgrip fits a powerbank which allows you to charge the phone while scouting.
