From one of our best sources: “There will be soon (October) a new external Electronic Viewfinder you can attach on the hotshoe of the PEN. The Hotshoe alone can’t deliver the image. You need a cable to connect the Pen to the EVF.”
IÂ (Alejandro from 43rumors) confess I have one single doubt. Will the EVF work with the E-P1 and the next Olympus MicroFourThirds cameras? Or with the E-P1 only? Or with the next Pen model only? The two BIG source don’t gave me a clear answer…
I have the doubt because no source mentions the E-P1 (they say PEN). May it is just me making problems for nothing.
UPDATE: The sources can’t or won’t tell me more. Personally I can’t imagine how the cable could connect the E-P1 to the EVF on the hotshoe. You want be able to hold the camera.
43rumors is 100% that there will be an attachable external electronic viewfinder. The EVF can be fixed on the hotshoe mount. The cable will connect the EVF to the PEN. And the EVF should be released early October. That means or this thing works with the E-P1 or the EVF will be released together with the next PEN which should be able to use this stuff 😉
