The Z-Finder Pro 3.0x for 3.2" Screens from Zacuto is an optical viewfinder that videographers may find necessary for shooting sharp, stable video on DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D MkIII, Nikon D800, or others with the same size LCD display. Whether shooting handheld or on a tripod, the Z-Finder Pro turns your camera's 3.2" LCD screen into a clear, easy-to-focus viewfinder that lets you see your image in magnified detail, even under the brightest sunlight. Just as crucially, the Z-Finder Pro provides an extra degree of handling comfort and a crucial point of contact--between camera and eye--that adds stability to any handheld video.

The Pro 3.0x version offers an adjustable diopter for near or far sighted users, and the LCD image is enlarged by a factor of 3.0x, so you can see every detail for pinpoint focus. The Z-Finder attaches to your camera via the included Gorilla Baseplate and mounting frame, which mount to the bottom of your camera using a standard 1/4"-20 screw. A non-stick rubber backing ensures a tight fit and prevents scratching of the LCD screen, so that the entire Z-Finder snaps off easily when not in use. Once detached, the unit can hang conveniently around your neck from the included lanyard.

Note! If you already have a Z-Finder, you can purchase just the Z-Finder 3.2" Frame for small body cameras.

3.0x magnification.
40mm diameter lens for excellent light throughput.
Allows 3.2" DSLR camera displays to have correct form factor for video.

      I bought this product to use for run and gun video recording with my Canon 5dMKIII. It is excellent. I was able to maintain critical focus and it gave me a third point of contact, that made my shots more stable. I used it on a shortfilm and so far, I don't have anything negative to say about it.

      I picked this up after initially buying a lower priced alternative which did not fit my D600 properly. This is well built like all Zacuto items, but even with the battery grip frame extender it still didn;t sit flat. To pay a few hundrfed dollars for this and the grip extender onyl to have to hit [*] for soem spacing washers seems a little ridiculous. That beign said after my modification with the washers the unit performs well, attaches securely and is a god sent in direct light.

      Comments about Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 3.0x for 3.2" Screens:

      I'd been experiencing focusing issues with my DSLR mainly because my eyes could not focus on the the tiny LCD viewer on the back of my camera. Once I installed the Zacuto everything changed! I immediately began to see a new world of clarity and focus in my work. One recommendation would be to also purchase the quick mount base for the view finder.

      This is a simple but needed product. Many others have tried to create this needed viewfinder but none as good as Zucuto. In keeping with the Zucuto line it is overpriced...but is made well, and works -- so in the long run its the best game in the house.

        I already owned a Pro 3x 3.0" for my D3s, and needed a 3.2" version for my new D810. I already knew the quality was top notch. The only thing I've noticed with the new optic, is that for some reason on the D810, I required two of the three extenders for me to be able to get focus on the LCD (without reading glasses), where none was required on the 3x 3.0" version on my D3s. Of course, that is why they are included, and it worked just as it should, I just thought that odd. Yeah, I'd buy this again, and think it is an absolute necessity for handholding a DSLR.

        The finder lines up nicely with the screen on my D-800. It can be difficult to attach and detach from the mounting frame, though. Over time, I suspect the opposite will be true and it will be necessary to use the straps that wrap rather awkwardly around the camera.

        Comments about Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 3.0x for 3.2" Screens:

        I just purchased another Z-finder for my second camera and I couldn't be happier. This has become a mainstay in our small production crew's kit, and I find it nearly impossible to shoot video without it. Not only does it deliver a bright and crisp image to the eye (which is essential for critical focusing), but it allows the shooter to hold the camera firmly and comfortably against the eye, creating a very stable platform. This is an excellent product for run and gun video shooting and I can't imagine trying to do a job without one. If you have tried to handhold a camera with a 3" screen and shoot stable video, you will be blown away with this viewfinder. It will change the way you shoot.

          Use on back of D800 to shoot video. Alloys great visibilty of LCD which is impossible on LCD in sunlight. Can manage focus and exposure effortlessly as well as framing.
          Kind of expensive but really makes taking video MUCH easier as you move from total amateur to paid jobs. Love it!

                I have used a D4 and D800 in filming video outdoors. The big challenge has been trying to deal with the sun drowning out the screen. The Z-Finder has been a great help in keeping the setup lightweight while allowing a clear view of the display.

                  I keep the gorilla plate mounted on my D5300 all the time because it keeps my lenses from rubbing on my Stedi-stock mount. I can still change batteries and use tri/monopods - no problem.The viewfinder lets me take off my glasses when I shoot if I prefer - don't have to though. The eye cup blocks all the light out.

                      This is a must have for both cinematic and photographic shooters. You can get cheaper ones, and I have, but as my grandpa used to say "I can't afford to buy cheap stuff". You're going to end up discovering your need to upgrade at some point and then the older/cheaper model has cost you money. I do have a Jr. model as well simply for using with another camera in photo mode to check focus and help outdoors on sunny days. And having used both, I would recommend you go all the way to the pro model because of the mounting bracket. The metal clip on the Jr. model is a joke, and most tripod shoes wont have a long enough screw to bite properly. The gorilla base that comes with this is awesome. Being able to clip the unit on and off smoothly for live view shooting or video is a must have. And as for the expense, it's not that bad when you consider you're only talking about the difference. A cheaper model is going to cost you money as well, so the question is simply is the Zacuto Pro worth the difference. Without a doubt. Get it.

                          I just received this product and I'm blown away. I bought it because I'm 47 and just started wearing glasses to read and the little 3.2 screen was just too small and all my videos were out of focus. With this my videos are sharp, sharp, sharp. Price is a bit of a shock but whatever, beats having blurry movies.

                            I use this on a 5Diii. Zacuto changed the design of the base plate (Version 2) - but hav'nt updated the assembly instruction page that comes in the box. It does all fit the camera even if the red toggle has moved position in the newer plate. Very convenient having an easy clip-on, clip off, attachment for the finder instead of other sticky solutions, and on any super bright day the finder is priceless in reading the display,

                              I am using the Z-Finder on my 5D Mark III. I shoot much of our video work with the Zacuto for our video marketing company. I tried another less expensive option but returned it soon after the first shoot. I feel the Zacuto product is worth the extra money because it is made well and it is more durable than the first viewfinder I tried.

                              Worth every penny. If you're going to cheap out on an item for your rig, don't cheap out on your viewfinder. This item it what you need to get the results you want. Don't waste your time with their competition. This is the one. The only complaint I can muster is that their stuff is built too well ... a little rigid when un-boxing/assembling to fit on to your camera. The first few times you snap it on and off with feel strange because it snaps on really tight and is hard to get off. This gets a little easier. Super comfortable, well made, great looking.

                                I bought this product to use for run and gun video recording with my Canon 5dMKIII. It is excellent. I was able to maintain critical focus and it gave me a third point of contact, that made my shots more stable. I used it on a shortfilm and so far, I don't have anything negative to say about it.

                                  Shot a short film without a ZFinder, the sunlight made it impossible to focus and expose properly. ZFinder changed all that.
