i dont understand why one would prefer the video assist signal in the viewfinder, since it's surely less resolution than the 16mm material.
which makes jugding the actual sharpness as projected to the film impossible.

Cool! Where did you find the mounting bracket and the adapter connector plug? Did you trash a whole video camera to take the viewfinder and the parts?

Hi haspel

In some situations...Rotatable Viewfinder is very useful in handleing and focusing...especially shooting low-angle shot and high-angle shot..
