Hybrid Multi Viewfinder

A New Hybrid Viewfinder that Optimizes Magnification Depending
on the Lens

″Photographers love viewfinders″. This simple style of shooting defines one of the essential pleasures of photography. It is also the inspiration behind the development of our Hybrid Viewfinder, with its capability to instantly switch between an Optical Viewfinder (OVF) and Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). Automatically switching opticalviewfinder magnification (Wide and Standard) and frame size (multiple steps) depending on the mounted XF lens, the Hybrid "Multi" Viewfinder is every photographer's dream, giving the best of both the optical and the digital worlds.

Freedom to Shoot with the OVF or EVF

Depending on the shooting conditions and your creative vision, you can instantly switch between using an optical viewfinder (OVF) or an electronic viewfinder (EVF) to compose your shot. Without taking your eye from the viewfinder or moving your index finger from the shutter button, a simple pull and release of the switch lever with your middle finger smoothly switches between modes.

Optical Viewfinder (OVF)

Optical Image Clarity Plus Display of Key Shooting Data
Perfectly frame each shot with the sharply defined bright frame projected by a built-in, high-performance LCD panel. You also have the freedom to customize what information is displayed in the viewfinder for easy confirmation of the settings you need.

Perfectly Frame and Preview Your Shot with the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF)

Enjoy 100% coverage on a sharp image display produced by a 0.47-inch high definition LCD boasting approximately 1,440,000 dots of resolution. Delivering a crisp, clear display of the scene for both “Live View” framing and a quick post-shot review of your results, the EVF is ideal when composing macro shots and other scenes that demand high-precision framing.

Automatic Magnification Switch According to the Focal Length of the Mounted Lens

When you change XF-series lenses, both the viewfinder magnification and bright frame size automatically switch to support the lens focal length. Viewfinder magnification switches to 0.37x when the 18mm lens is mounted, and to 0.60x for the 35mm or 60mm lens, letting you frame your shot with the bright, crystal clarity of an optical image. You can also manually set a focal distance and switch between viewfinder magnifications by holding down the viewfinder switch lever for more 2 seconds.

Smooth Visual Switch to EVF

Enabling the optical viewfinder to switch between Wide and Standard magnification reduces the difference in the angle of view when switching to EVF. The result is a smoother and more natural visual shift between viewfinder modes.
