Kopin CyberEVF - Viewfinder|
Kopin developed the CyberEVF 230K as a standard electronic viewfinder (EVF) product for digital cameras. It integrates a full-color QVGA (320 x 240) resolution microdisplay, ultra-thin backlight, optics, and easy-to-use focusing mechanism into a tiny housing unit (17mm x 23.5mm x 25mm). With 15x image magnification and a 22-degree field of view, the viewfinder generates large, vivid color images with minimal distortion or color aberration. This complete EVF solution enables digital camera manufacturers to shorten the design time for new products and substantially reduce the assembly cost. The CyberEVF 230K's size is approximately two-thirds of the depth and less than half the volume of competing EVF modules, enabling digital camera OEMs to shrink their cameras to a pocket-size form factor, a key benefit for consumers.

Fan, Kopin's president and CEO. "Digital cameras remain a primary focus in our microdisplay strategy.
