    Love this little beast, but are there any plans for a viewfinder? Is it even possible? Shooting out in in daylight is a pain in the ass and because of the form factor I find myself naturally wanting to use a viewfinder instead of the screen. Are there any alternatives?

    Only one I know of that doesn't cost more than the camera is this. Costs $300

    I love the one FujiFilm have integrated into their X-T series cameras. Beautiful little device.

    Portkeys seems a good option but only 24 fps at 4k dci? And no battery option... Annoying.

    Haha, a FEW caveats with that Adorama one...

    “Clearance Condition: F
    Item Note: Item is malfunctional; Screen will freeze after several minutes of use; Missing AC power adapter; Missing D-tap to mini-XLR cable; May have additional issues. Cosmetic condition is E-.”

    But ONLY $300!

    We have two on P4Ks. Same Canon batts, cheap, work great and allow full access to the 5" screen

    I have a Zacuto Z Finder EVF Pro that I bought used locally for $100. Works well enough.
