The Zacuto Z-Finder Mounting Frame for DSLRs with Battery Grips is required when mounting a Z-Finder to the 3" LCD screens of small-body cameras--from the Canon 5D Mark II to the Nikon D90--equipped with battery grips. This longer frame attaches to a required Gorilla Plate using two thumb screws; then, with the frame's rubber edges pressing snugly against the LCD screen, the Z-Finder can snap quickly into the frame and be just as easily removed.

Works with Z-Finder Pro 2.5x, 3x, and Jr. (Gorilla Plate not included with Z-Finder Jr.--must be purchased separately)
Made of aircraft aluminum
Non-stick rubber coating seals off light and prevents scratching of camera
Compatibility For small-body DSLRs with 3" LCD screens, including:
Canon 5D Mark II
Canon 7D
Canon 550D (T2i)
Nikon D90

    With a battery pack on my 5DII this was the only way I was going to get the best from my Zfinder. I resent having to pay so much for an accessory that most keen photographers are going to need. It does the job but there is a tendency to get the frame too tight onto the camera leaving a light gap at the top of the Zfinder.

    Comments about Zacuto Z-Finder 3" Mounting Frame for DSLRs with Battery Grips:

    The only product that will get you the results you need to use a Z-Finder with a battery grip. I was using a Canon 5D Mark III. This component has an excellent build, professional quality, etc. Can't do wrong. My only complaint is the higher than expected price.

    Comments about Zacuto Z-Finder 3" Mounting Frame for DSLRs with Battery Grips:

    I have a 5DII and battery pack and had no other choice but buy this overpriced necessity for my Z- Finder. I had to fiddle about a bit with the extra slide to the shoe and remove one of the locking hex screws to get it to line up properly with the screen; but once these adjustments are made, it is good to go. It is of great build quality and works perfectly with the Z-finder.

        This fits my Canon 5D Mark II with battery grip fine, but blocks the battery panel, so you have to remove this frame every time you need to swap out the batteries. really annoying....

        A Must Have for Canon 60D w/battery grip

            Comments about Zacuto Z-Finder 3" Mounting Frame for DSLRs with Battery Grips:

            If you plan to use a Z-Finder with the Canon 60D and the Canon BG-E9 battery grip, you must have this frame. The frame has the extra reach to fit tightly against the LCD screen despite the grip's extra depth. This combination of camera and finder is a joy to shoot with. Stable and easy to hold.
            We also use this pairing on a Fast Draw rig for even more stability.

            Zacuto makes first class, useful, well designed equipment that fills the bill for many shooting situations.

            This mount does just what it says, but it costs quite a penny for just being a mounting plate... still, just had to bite the bullet and get it. Well tooled out of metal, fits the Z-finder well and is the appropriate size. It works well on my T2i.

                Now I can attach my z-finder to my 5D without gluing my camera LCD. If your camera have an extra battery grip on. You will love this frame.
