    I've been testing these out for Epson as a viewing system and they are pretty friggin' cool, especially for handheld and Ronin applications. Normally these are used by lab techs, dentists, surgeons etc., however Epson incorporated an HDMI out on them making them useful as a camera viewing system. I know there are quite a few
    drone operators using these but I found them to be a versatile option as an EVF for a lot of other shooting situations.

    What makes these different from the other glasses is their transparency so you can see both the image and what is physically in your path so to avoid trees, curbs, potholes etc.

    If interested there will be demo at NAB booth C1327 starting Monday.

    Are these useable out of the box as a "monitor"?

    I've been wanting something like this for years and even mentioned it several years ago on REDuser. To me this + Foolcontrol can turn multicams into robots for certain kinds of shooting.

    I'm not sure if the link is broken or if it is a bandwidth issue because it was working earlier this morning.

    Try these ones:

    Not broken, just takes a long time to load.

    Somewhat... you just have to buy the HDMI cable to connect to your camera.

    I've been using it because I shoot a lot of handheld, R&G style projects.

    We'll be demoing it with a Ronin at NAB.

    William, you should set up a group buy for REDuser.

    I'm thinking something like the Nyrius HDMI transmitter to sling the image to the Nyrius receiver connected to HDMI on the Epson. If this doesn't interfere with the DSMC2 internal wi-fi, you could remotely have control over your camera while viewing what it is seeing. And doing this by looking through your glasses display at the Fool Control readout on your iPad.

    That sounds like a great idea Elsie. I will talk to my contact there and see if we can set one up.

    Good!

    One more question from your experience... the Epson glasses give you the feel of an 80 inch display. Do you pull focus yourself and does that size simulated display aid in that?
