Description

The Zacuto Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) is a 3.2” high resolution monitor designed to be used in conjunction with any Z-Finder model. The EVF is compatible with all cameras that have an HDMI output, including most DSLRs, the Panasonic AF-100, Sony F3, Canon C100/300/500, RED ONE, RED Scarlet, RED Epic and many, many more. The EVF is compatible with the Blackmagic Camera (and other SDI only cameras) with use of a converter like the Blackmagic HD-SDI to HDMI mini converter. The EVF allows you to operate with your camera "in-line" with your rod system and an offset viewfinder in front of your eye. We believe this traditional film camera and ENG camera style of shooting is the most stable and comfortable. Now we can work this way with any camera. The EVF enhances the stability of any set up, gives you better resolution and focus ability, allows you to get your eye where it most comfortably needs to be, enables low mode shooting, and shortens a shoulder mounted camera package. With an external viewfinder, you’re no longer trapped behind the back of your camera. You can have your camera on a dolly or crane or in a car or anywhere and have the EVF in your hand.

The Z-Finder EVF Pro is a complete EVF with diopter. It includes the EVF Flip model and an optical viewfinder which can snap onto the frame of the monitor and also flip up 180 degrees. The optical viewfinder contains high quality 2.5x optics with anti-fog shields and a diopter. It also includes three extender frames. The Z-Finder Extender Frames allow you to further adjust the focal point of the Z-Finder by semi-permanently stacking the frames via a snap fit onto the skirt of the Z-Finder until the LCD screen is in focus for you. You can then dial in closer with the diopter wheel.

WARNING
A Z-finder is a magnifier and as such, do not allow sunlight to enter the Z-Finder, for even a moment, while it is attached to the EVF. The light can be magnified by the lens and potentially cause damage to the EVF screen. Always use the included Sun Mask and immediately put lens cap over lens when not in use.

The electronic components have a limited 1 year warranty.

Essential tool for DSLR filmmakers
I love using the Z-Finder EVF Pro. The eyepiece has a really nice comfortable feel against your face, and it shields the sun from reflecting against the screen. The 2.5x magnification is a big plus-it's really easy to get critical focus, which can be a challenge with a DSLR. Speaking of focus, I love the red line peaking feature, which highlights the area that is in focus in red. The bold color is really helpful when the objects on screen are similar in color. When shooting snow, it can be hard to find the perfect exposure. You don't want to blow out the snow and you don't want your subject to be totally dark either. With two different IRE settings on the EVF that you can customize, I can tell if faces are the correct exposure, while also knowing if the snow or sky is too bright. Genius! Best of all, I can program three buttons on the side to my liking, making it super easy to access my most helpful controls. Now, my DSLR feels like a video camera.
