About Zacuto Z-Find-Pro3

The Z-Finder Pro 3x is another one of Zacuto's Optical Viewfinders that allows DSLR cameras to have the correct form factor for video. It offers 3x focusable magnification (2.5x is available), a 40mm diameter Zacuto optical designed Anti-Fog lens, an eyecup preventing extraneous light leakage, a diopter and a field of view perfectly matched to 3" LCD screens.

The diopter allows you to dial in the focus to match your eye. If you need extra focal point you can use the Z-Finder Extender Frames. The Z-Finder Pro 3x has a diopter range of -2.75 and up (unlimited with extender frames). These are semi-permanently stackable frames that attach to the skirt of the Z-Finder Pro and extends the Z-Finder glass further way from the LCD screen for people who are farsighted.

The Z-Finder Pro uses Zacuto's Gorilla Baseplate and Z-Finder mounting frame to mount to the camera. The Gorilla Baseplate attaches to the bottom of your camera using a ¼ 20" screw and the Z-Finder mounting frame attaches to the Gorilla Baseplate using thumb screws. The rubber back mounting frame does not attach to your LCD; it is held in place against your LCD with pressure.

This method allows you to quickly remove the Z-Finder Pro by snapping it off the frame. If you want to remove the entire mounting frame from your camera, you can do so by loosening the thumb screws and pulling up on the metal mounting frame to release it. With the Z-Finder Pro, you are also a step closer to using one of Zacuto's Gorilla Support Rigs, as they use the same baseplate as the base.

Zacuto Z-Find-Pro3 Optical Viewfinder

By

from Chicago  -  Semi-Professional

The Zacuto Z-Find-Pro3 Optical Viewfinder is a great fit for DSLR cameras used to shoot movies. The viewfinder works very well. It is an absolute need for cameras with a rear LCD screen. Useful and attractive product.

Good, but cheap plastic.

By

from Evanston, IL  -  Semi-Professional

This product does exactly what it says it does, there is no denying that. But for [$](on sale) I would expect better construction, not 95% plastic. Sure, plastic keeps it light, but so does carbon fiber. When you open the box the first time, you will be disappointed. [$]Really?Again, I'm not saying this isn't a necessary item in my arsenal, just that Zacuto has definitely been able to capitalize on the dslr hype to the fullest extent. I will look elsewhere for my next viewfinder purchase.

A perfect accessory... Almost...

By

from Brooklyn, NY  -  Professional

Couldn't be happier with this. It is almost all that I wanted it to be, with the exception of not being able to mount it with my accessory battery pack installed on my EOS 5D MKII. If there were a configuration for this, it would be perfect!
