    What do you think will be the best EVF solution for the Fx6, the Fx9 loupe?
    Or The Zacuto Z-finder?
    Or is there another EVF which doesn’t need batteries?

    I’m also waiting for the Z-finder version, it isn’t the best solution but with an dedicated evf I will lose one port, which is a shame if would like to run multiple outputs.

    if you need multiple outputs you may consider either of the following as they are "passive" broadcast quality splitters. So no external power required. With the latest LEN even being capable of up to 4K 12G. They are not self terminating outputs like the SDI outputs on the camera so if you have one mounted on the camera with an one or both ports unoccupied just have 75 Ohm terminators on the BNCs spigots. Nice simple way of giving yourself an extra clean SDI output. Iv'e used the Apantac on the FS7 on SDI #1 thus giving me two clean outs from #1 and leaving SDI #2 for menus up the whole time if desired.

    Cool, thanks!

    For a "studio" setup I'm considering the Tilta Universal Battery plate, it has a lot of power ports and also a built in splitter.

    You can also use a simple T-connector to get two outputs.

    This is true but there are some very serious signal quality issues you need to take into consideration if doing that. The only way you can split an SDI signal, without really horrible reflections and return loss, is with an impedance-specific splitter. Details of the do's and don'ts below. Take note of the 75Ohm terminators out to 2GHz. Been there done that and seen the problems a number of times on live OB's.

    I just got a quote to order the Sony viewfinder loupe, it will cost 900 CHF which is around 1000$. That is a BIG investment for a plastic viewfinder!

    I understand now why Sony is not offering it with the Fx6... but I just can't imagine filming for example in bright sun on a snowy mountain without a viewfinder.

    That's just stupid expensive for the loupe. I guess the FS7 loupe fits the FX6 as the Zacuto Z-finder works for FS7 and FX9.

    You might try the Hoodman loupe if it fits. Its cheap and I used to use it with my EX-1. Preferred it to the EX-3 loupe and it was very small.

    Give it a few months and I'm sure third parties will quickly start to offer cheap (and better!) alternatives.
