Description

This kit includes the Zacuto Gorilla Plate V2 and Z-Finder Mounting Frame for Panasonic GH3/GH4. It is used to attach any Zacuto Z-Finder Pro or Jr model to the Panasonic GH3 or Panasonic GH4. Use this kit to modify your current Z-Finder to fit these cameras. If you do not already have a Zacuto Z-Finder you can order it packaged with this GH3/GH4 specific set up here.

The Z-Finder Mounting Frame for the Panasonic GH3/GH4 camera is specifically designed for a Panasonic GH3 and Panasonic GH4 and is not compatible with any other cameras or alternate set ups. It will not work when a battery grip is added to the camera or when the camera screen is articulated. It is not compatible with the YAGH Interface Unit. The Z-Finder frame attaches to the DSLR Gorilla Plate V2 with two red Z-Finder Thumbscrews which screw directly into the Gorilla Plate V2. The frame has a rubber coating on the back to avoid scratching and to ensure a clean seal with the LCD screen.

The Gorilla Plate V2 is a small platform baseplate designed for DSLRs and other small cameras. The Gorilla plate attaches to your camera using a standard ¼ 20 screw. You can mount your tripod plate underneath the Gorilla plate to quickly move from handheld to tripod use. There is a 15mm rod port on the underside of the Gorilla Plate V2 controlled by a Zacuto quick release ratcheting lever.

Almost perfect
After having the GH4 since I preordered it, I've used several different cages, mounting plates, etc along with several different "viewfinders". None compare to this unit right here. The metal bracket fits super tight against the GH4 and will NOT move at all once secured. It's nice and tight and really makes you feel secure when snapping your zfinder on. Two issues though arose after a lot of use. First, in order to get certain lenses and adapters on, you have to actually remove the zfinder frame and slide the camera forward.... Fix that Zacuto make the baseplate less long/wide so the camera site flush with all edges including the zfinder edge. Issue 2, is that you cannot move the frame because there are "predrilled holes" on the back of the plate specifically for the gh4. Well this didn't line up perfectly and I had to position my gh4 screen a tad awkwardly to make sure the frame was snug. Something to think about Zacuto. Otherwise my only other recommendation would be let us use this late and frame WITH A CAGE! Not everyone can afford an indie recoil rig therefore your QR gorilla plate should allow you to mount a cage directly to the camera... Check out the smallrig "versa" cage for an example. Other than this thing ROCKS! Serious machining and no flex when secured, this will alleviate that AWFUL pulling force when using the adhesive frames that could rip your screen off your camera! Get this now and make your GH4 That much better and secure
