Which MFDVC has Live-View (without tethering)? I thought none of the digital backs had true live-view (let alone a decent LCD screen).
What is the difference between true live view and normal live view?
I do not know of any digiback that has live view untethered... live view is not available on mine, but I hope it will be in a week of two when Phocus 1.2 is available.
The LCD screen on the H3D is 3" I think, and not too bad.
A Sinar and a laptop would be heavy to hand hold, but an artec and a small laptop would be possible. My Sinar P3 and my 17" laptop would be difficult... With a separate view finder, you do not have to hold the camera in front of you eye... you could mount the Sinar on a ruck sack frame - a bit like Buzz Lightyear's weapon pack, or put the camera on your shoulder, like the big video cameras.
