Q - EVF issue?

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I have been using my Q nearly every day since it arrived and wear glasses all the time...Ive experienced none of this. 

I think we are blowing this way out of proportion. So we have just one person with the issue or does anyone else actually have this problem? 

Indeed.

The EVF has a rubber housing, that is at least 1mm thick at the edge over the "glass" of the EVF. It is impossible to scratch it with eyeglasses.

Well, the anti reflection coating is quite easily scratched. If you care to google, you'll find about a million threads on this in the various watch forums. There has been a long debate about this for years and most of the producers have switched to coating the inside only, but not the outside.

 

Once the coating is scratched, you can polish it off. The scratches will be gone, but the glass will reflect light. 

 

(I should probably not call this scratches, but marks...)

 

The issue on the Q is that the viewfinder glass is quite wide, allowing the sun to shine on it in situations where there is light behind you. A better rubber eyecup would probably solve this in the next version of the Q... the current solution has obviously been to apply an anti reflection coating.

I wear glasses and have been using it every day for the last week and it is fine. I know it is not the answer people want but it is unlikely that any damage to the anti-reflective will lessen the image quality  in the EVF when the camera up to your eye

There are many ways to scratch small recessed surfaces. I wouldn't think first of my glasses if it happened to me, as I would think it quite difficult to reach something like that with an corner of my glasses.
