A while back I decided to do a ‘mod'(I use that term lightly) to my OLED EVF on the Nex. The rest of the camera, and many of the lenses I use are black in colour, and the silver, although perfectly fine and functional, just seemed to stand out to me. For an accessory, its a pricy little piece really, but I much prefer using a VF of some form to the live view screen on the back of cameras.
Practically, it was a fairly straightforward job. Take off, take apart, spray and put back together. My first top coat (pictured below) caught some dust. I smoothed it down and applied another. From any distance other than up at my eye its a good enough finish, and in my opinion, much nicer on the all black camera!
Work necessitated my travel south from Auckland to Hamilton City today. With a bit of a sore back, I took a few mini stops in the ~150km journey. What has since turned into a wet and forecast windy evening, was a beautiful golden morning.
I was shooting with a borrowed, semi broken Samsung NX10. The main LCD has cracked and does not function, but the ovf still works. Linked with my old Ricoh 50mm lens, it looks like a really nice kit – I only wish the ovf was a little larger, or offered some form of manual lens assistance like my Nex does. Still, some ok images from an otherwise potentially binned mirrorless camera.
