Raising the bar for digital viewfinders, MallinCam's DVF Digital View Finder is compatible with any and all astronomical CCD video cameras.  The MallinCam DVF's 3.5-inch (3.5"/8.89 cm) 800x480 LCD screen acts just as an eyepiece does, but with greater resolution, in full color and with considerably more comfort and stability. The hooded viewfinder cuts down on objectionable brightly-lit monitors at star parties. 

THE MallinCam DVF is suited for solar observation due to its hooded monitor, which blocks direct light. Using an ingenious magnetic system, the hood and affixed lens can be raised, allowing direct visual access to the screen.
The DVF can be tilted to maximize viewing comfort. It affixes to the camera via a standard mount or can be placed on a tripod (not included).

  • Adjustable rubber shade eye patch 
  • HDMI input and output
  • Supports 1920X1080 HD Video Display
  • Can be connected from your Laptop through the HDMI out of your computer  
  •  Multiple position hot shoe placement permits full viewing angle 
  •  Mountable on tripod (not included)
  •  Shortcut buttons for B & W, color, RGB and monochrome display 
  •  RED display selection for preserving night vision 
  •  GREEN display selection for deep sky faint object viewing 
  •  Cross Center Reticle
  •  Image 16:9 or 4:3 switchable (4:3 recommended) 
  • Brightness, contrast, tint, saturation and color temperature adjustable in real time.

Note that the DVF alone accepts only a standard HDMI input.  To connect to a camera with S-video or Composite video output you will require the HDMI upscaler as well.
