    Hi guys, I'm having a slight difficulty figuring out the models of the screens used in electronic viewfinders for cameras (i.e. Olympus VF-4 and similar).
    Any ideas?

    the viewfinder is OEM specific and uses a proprietary data port for Olympus cameras only. It is doutbful that you could find the manufacturers replacement anywhere except through Olympus, and then I doubt replacement parts would be possible. They want to sell you finished product and do not have any interest in providing piece parts for individual repair efforts.

    That being stated, the prices seem reasonable for the level of sophistication communicated in the article.

    I don't really care about that specific Olympus evf.
    I'm looking for info about similar LCDs.
    I'm interested in designing an EVF.

    Thank you Bertus, that's more than I've been able to find.
