screen suitable for loupe?

Post by BUNNYBLASTER6 » 16 Oct 2014, 15:47

Hi all,

is there a screen with suitable resolution to suit a GGS 3x LCD veiwing loupe ( ideally for 3" screen).
I know this may well be old hat and i'm way behind the times but i've a watec 902h sitting around and fancied a go - the only thing is i'm not keen on screen / heads up displays and prefer to " view through".
That said, can anyone direct me to threads re: near eye display builds if the above is un-achievable.

Cheers,

Mike

2.5" bare bone screen inside a project box. Is this what you after? Loupe is perfect fit on the box.

The link for the screen dosent work, may be out of stock, will try to find a similar one. £38 posted it was early spring this year.

I would say it's almost hd, a while back someone published some figures here, a offing to that, resolution was quite high. Put it in simple words, you can't see the pixels when looking with loupe. Those using angle eye or camcorder viewfinder can tell you the pixels is a major drawback.

This is where I got mine, but the linked to the product that I saved dosent work.

I cracked my first one, the screen is very fragile, I was very carefull with the second one. I have no experience with 2" version, judging by the 2.5", it can't be bad, I was tempted but settled for 2.5". If using same project box, you'll have plenty room inside for expansion. I have a osd voltage meter that I'm planing to house inside mine when I'm done with chopping and changing.
