The VARY-i is a multiangle LCD Viewfinder Loupe, made for the Panasonic GH4/GH3 camera. The VARY-i gives a good, clear view of the LCD monitor at any angle. The precise and solid construction prevents mechanical stress on the LCD monitor, but gives more stability to the shot.
The mounting plate is fitted with a limiter which fits under the camera and prevents rotation. The plate has two 1/4” and one 1/2“ threaded holes for direct screw mounting onto a tripod or other device. The extra holes in the plate are for the tripod quick release plate locking pins.After attaching the camera mounting plate, it is easy to quickly connect or disconnect the VARY-i Viewfinder. Just carefully slide it over the LCD monitor and slide the lip on the underside into the opening in the mounting plate. To secure it, there are two fixing screws: one on the bottom and one on the front.
It is possible to regulate the stiffness of the rotation with the large knob V on the side.
The LCD loupe has 2 modes of use: magnification mode and standard mode. Magnification mode provides a focusable 3x enlargement of the lcd monitor for stable and clear viewing. In Standard mode you can flip the entire eyepiece up to use it as a hood. The rubber eyecup can be adjusted for use with either the left or right eye.
The micro HDMI port is useable from top view to straight behind.
METABONES SPEED BOOSTER can be used if you remove the detachable tripod foot.
After shooting , you don’t have to disconnect the VARY-i from the camera for transport. Just loosen the red knob on the front ,then pull the VARY-i a little to the left and turn it to the front, push it to the right and fasten the red knob.
