  1. Hi Ben .. After seeing the quality of the images at the FCC meeting I am very interested but there are a few questions. Do you supply the Optical Viewfinder and what do you think of it. Any comments on the addition of a flash unit and filters and so on. Thanks ..

    1. Hi Graham great to meet you last night. The Quattro is certainly something, in regards to your question no I havn’t used the veiwfinder yet Im sure it will work a treat. We have looked at putting a LCDVF viewer on the screen and that worked really well. Flash unit again havnt seen the unit yet. Filter wise the 30mm takes a 58mm filter we looking at getting filter kit together for the Quattro as we speak. And while the hood add to the size and form of the camera we really think it is a must. Talk soon Ben
