Swivi



Thought I'd make a quick post about something I found today. I don't believe it is out yet but it's a GREAT IDEA. I'm wondering how it would work with the Sony FS100 or FS700. If it would fit, it could make a great improvement to the ergonomics of these cams. One things for sure, its a game changer for those who have a non-swivel LCD on thier DSLR. Many of us bought a DSLR before they employed the swivel screens. I still have my 7D and use it from time to time. This swivel screen would be a great addition.

Their website is swiviusa.com, which just redirects to carryspeed.com (currently), which means as of today, it hasn't been released yet. Since this is a pre-release look, we don't know yet what the specs are... at least I can't find them. If anyone has info on this please post.

  1. I don't think this is going to be much use. Look at it, it's like a freaking 747 wing hanging off the side of the camera. I bet the resolution is crap too.

  2. I'm sure before too long there will be some good pre-production reviews on it. When the release the specs it should tell us whether it's worth its weight in gold or not.

  3. I'm not sure if it'd fit on a fs100, because the buttons are on the side that it would have to mount on.

  6. I hope you're wrong Jim, this would be a great find as long as the resolution is sharp. Just because it has a HDMI cable doesn't mean it actually HD. Crossing fingers.
