It looks pretty good and a very good price, I am thinking of getting one, but how much noise does it make? Has anyone tried it with a reflex viewfinder?

as far as know it's not a reflex cam but you have either an optical viewfinder per lens or a video feedback to match different focal length
the regular lens coming with the cam is a 9mm
i met the guys who designed them and i think it's a great cam to do incredibles shots on music video it's really small cheap an lightweight

Duall offers the A-Cam with a reflex conversion - the one they show on their website has an orientable Angenieux from an Eclair NPR, which means that finders from the CP16R should also work. They also have a version of the camera with a video assist, as I recall. Of course, these modifications make the camera bulkier and more expensive, which seems at odds with the basic design philosophy of the A-Cam.

its not very noicy..
Got one, have made som recordings with sound..
the engineer sayd nothing.. so thats good
no reflex, but if you buy the "package" with a video assist. and later buys a cheap 16:9 lcd monitor, you have a "modern" vievfinder..
Its a very small camera, that reminds me of a "pd150" or the new HDV cams, And I think the camera is ment to be used like one.. ( lots of handheld, in cramped small rooms etc)( following people in reality shows etc..)
Only thing I seem to miss after using it a few weeks, is one or two optics.. eg like 15-20mm and also a "wild" wildangle eg century 3,5.
Still with out these optics ( and the problem this being a non reflex) what comes out of it, is really nice!!
