    Do your buttons actually change the brightness, as with the old Bomb, or not? mine does NOT change brightness, it does not really need it, but sometimes it would be nice to adjust it a bit.
    Is this a feature of the OLED, not needing adjustments?
    it's been said somewhere that they are not currently enabled in the current firmware but will be in the next build...

    the buttons on my oled bomb evf also are not doing anything, but there was no need to adjust the brightness so far. i believe i have been reading somewhere, that jarred has stated, that button thing will be solved with a future firmware update...

    would be nice to have this buttons user assignable. then i would give them the functions edge and magnification...

    Yes, it is only the inner components that are different.

    Also, when you upgrade from an old Bomb, you get back the same outer shell but with "OLED EVF" laser engraved on the side.

    I got mine yesterday and I thought I was getting my Redmote because I got an email last week that the Redmote was getting ready to be shipped. I get the box and it's much bigger than I thought it would be. I opened the package and was staring at the box that said Red EVF. It took me about 10 seconds of staring at it to realize that it wasn't the Redmote. All of a sudden when I realized what it was I got an immediate happy face and I felt like a child on Christmas. Thanks Red, I love the EVF.

    I'm experiencing problems with our camera so I don't know if this is associated. We received our OLED EVF and excitedly put it on our Epic (V3.0.0) The buttons obviously don't work so I can't make any adjustments to try and rectify my EVF issue.

    The best way to descibe what I am seeing is that the picture is very sharp - much sharper than the LCD EVF, however if you were to think of grey scale from 0% to 100%, the range from 20% and upwarrds is at 80% & brighter, with the bottom 20% crushed blacks, i.e I am seeing way too much detail in the shadows which are nearly as bright as the highlights, but the bottom end of the shadows are crushed black. We are shooting a vampire show, so there is a lot of warm light, however the Epic's LCD monitor is great for viewing but not operating. Is this a dodgy OLED or to do with the firmware build? We have tried it on 2 cameras with the same results, but both cameras also exhibit other common issues so I don't know if this is related, though I think not.

    Any ideas?

    So worth it Mr. Collister.

    I sure hope playback will get enabled with the EVF asap... sure is annoying having to switch over to the LCD to play back one or two clips.
