Sony V1U Magnet Flip?

New postby der4 on Sun May 27, 2007 4:58 pm

Does anyone know how to trick the LCD on the V1U to flip with a magnet? I have looked everywhere on the web but cannot find a thing. I know a monitor will work but I'm still interested in the magnet trick.

there is a thread at cinevate with apicture which shows where to place the magnet. Don t know the name of the guy that posted it but I am very grateful for it. I tried every spot on my cam but could not find it without his help
Works on my Z1 :D

I've tried all the magnet postings on this forum with my v1u also, but they usually are from someone using a z1. I bought the neodymium magnets, moved them all around the viewfinder area, and I can't get the LCD to flip. I'm not sure if the v1u is different in such a way that the magnet trick that works for the z1 doesn't work for the v1u?

The sweet spot for the FX1/Z1 is near the VCR playback buttons on the left. It is NOT on/along the LCD. Try it out on the V1. I'm not sure if it will work.
