I heard that Panavision has a rifle scope attachment to create that sniper/hunter POV effect, though that's not a binocular effect.

Also with mattes in front of the lens you need to watch out that you're not creating a "waterhouse stop," or essentially a second iris in front of the lens. On video you'd see the light loss right away, but on film you might not know how much the matte is "irising down" your image.
Framing is not a problem as long as the operator has an idea of what the final comp will look like, which is usually just a center-weighted image anyway. Most groundglasses and video viewfinders have center crosshairs for this sort thing.

Are you talking about Panavision's Hylen?
No, something different.
