Zacuto Z-Finder EVF
Zacuto is transforming the form factor of DSLR cameras for video with our electronic viewfinder. The Zacuto EVF is a 3.2” high resolution monitor that is used in conjunction with all the Z-Finder models. This electronic viewfinder is compatible with all cameras with an HDMI output including DSLR’s like the Canon 5d Mark II, Mark III, 7D, Nikon D800, D4, Panasonic GH2, Panasonic AG-AF100, Sony FS700, Sony FS100, Sony F3, Canon C300, Scarlet, Red One & Epic.
This electronic viewfinder allows you to operate the DSLR camera or any camera with an HDMI port, with the correct form factor for video with the camera “in-line” to your rod system (the most stable way) and your eye in the Z-Finder offset. This is the way all film cameras and ENG video cameras were operated and we, at Zacuto, believe this should be the way DSLR cameras should be operated.
It will enhance the stability, give you better resolution, allow you to get your eye where it most comfortably needs to be, enable low mode shooting, shorten your camera package, have your electronic viewfinder in the back of a dolly or crane, detached from the rig for car shots and more. Depending on how you want to shoot depends on where you should position your electronic viewfinder, let’s discuss:
