The Pro View is a wireless remote viewer for your SLR camera. The transmitter clips over the eye-piece mount and broadcasts over 500 feet to the receiver with its 3.5″ VGA screen. The receiver can accept signals from up to 4 Pro View transmitters and either cycle between them or show them all on the screen at once, it also has an AV out for display on a TV.
Interestingly the Pro View can’t fire the camera remotely however it does have a microphone so you can confirm that the shutter has fired. Unfortunately because the transmitter uses the eyepiece on the camera you can’t see what’s being recorded in video mode. Maybe the next model will fix that. US$395 for the transmitter and receiver.
Pro-View is the new digital technology for DSLR cameras that lets you see what your camera sees. With the Pro-View you can frame your shot from up to 500 feet away from your camera by viewing the scene on a sleek, wireless digital, hand-held color display. New perspectives and angles are now available without guessing at composition.
