I came across a camera package that had an Arriflex eyepiece with the eye-cup equipped with an electronic shutter (and heater as well).
It had no brand name, not from Arri, as I cannot find any reference of this.

Anybody else has seen this?
It has a photocell build in and if your face (or object) is close enough to the eyepiece cup, it opens the shutter.

Very convenient, very fast and no mistakes possible!
who knows more about this?

The Arri 416 sports this feature. Don't know if it can be retrofitted to older models but I'm sure anything is possible.
