Sony has announced an OLED EVF (electronic viewfinder) display with 5.6 million dots resolution and 6.3-micrometer dot pitch record. It has been considered a significant amount of improvement over 3.69 million dots EVF on its flagship A7R III and A9 mirrorless cameras. It has the ability to shoot with a refresh rate at 240 frames per second (almost double to its previous model). It is expected to be shipped after the third quarter of current year. Sony also indicated that you will then be able to get the mirrorless cameras with more responsive and sharper displays. The displays will have 1.6 times better resolution to its previous model. It will obviously close the gap on DSLRs with optical viewfinders and will be used on high-end cameras with best image quality.
The company also said that people will see them on AR and VR (augmented and virtual reality) headsets. It will be more helpful for shooting 4K video on mirrorless cameras with high refresh rate. The motion sickness and image artifacts in VR will also be reduced using new EVF cameras of Sony. The manufactured EVFs of Sony is being used on most other mirrorless cameras as compared to the models from Panasonic, Fujifilm, and others. Point to be noted that A75 III video-centric camera is also expected to arrive very soon and it might be shown during September at Photokina in Cologne, Germany. Nikon also announced about manufacturing a full-frame mirrorless camera and it will be able to use the EVF. New models from Leica and Fujifilm will also be presented during the same show in Germany.
