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 EVF Flip has a Z-Finder frame built into the unit that can be flipped open to 180 degrees. If a producer/client/director etc. wants to see into the viewfinder, you can flip it open instead of having to adjust so they can get their eye to the loupe. You can also pop off the Z-Finder and use the EVF as a monitor similar to the EVF Snap. The EVF Flip is compatible with any Z-finder.

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.

This item has a limited 1 year warranty.

The best EVF
this is is the best ever. i use it for not only my main camera, but also for my go pro on a 3axis gimbal so i have a no-lag connection with amazing clarity. highly recommend this unit to ANYONE using a tripod, or going handheld and need an electronic viewfinder OFF the camera.

I absolutely love this EVF. I try to use IT over any other EVF including the ones built into my camera(s). I primarily shoot with a GH4 and occasionally use the RED or the BMPC/BMCC... and I must say this little guy literally saves me ALOT of potential post production work allowing me to get the shot I need perfectly lit every time with wonderful color accuracy. I highly recommend this over any EVF until you make enough money to step up to the Gratical HD (my next investment). If you need something to really help your shot accuracy then THIS is the only monitor/EVF you'll ever need. I also use this with my Lanparte HHG-01 GoPro HandHeld gimbal... it's PERFECT literally PERFECT for that particular unit. Even better than the monitor that Lanparte sells thats supposed to be for that unit! Haha go figure! PICK THIS UP NOW ESPECIALLY SINCE ITS ON SALE! Even when the sale is over... you'd be crazy not to get one ASAP...

great little guy
My eyesight is not the greatest so this little guy helps to insure my shots are in line and in focus. It is dependable and easy to use. I can also use it as a secondary or primary monitor with my other larger monitor/field recorder which makes switching hand held positions really convenient or for a director/dp/client to use a small second monitor.. It's also a nice portable size and I can pop it into my bag without it taking up much room or adding much weight. It is a really well-thought out piece of equipment you will be super happy you have.
Yup, well done again, Zacuto guys. - professor.
