              Nice tight fit. Works better than the View Finders that hold on by adhesive. Fits on my D3s perfect

                  I used this on my 1D mark IV and it fits it fine. I do love this way of mounting much better than the old sticky frames that would just drive me crazy. However I do wish it would sit a little closer to the screen but its not really to big of a deal. And to comment on the guy who bought this for his 7D with a battery grip they make a special frame for that and it fits alot better than trying with this because this frame is designed for the 1D body style

                  Comments about Zacuto Z-Finder Mounting Frame for Tall DSLR Bodies:

                  Yes it is precision machined and built strong.
                  but not for the Nikon D3s layout. Covers 3 buttons half way.

                  Just as I've read elsewhere, the top half doesn't seal flush against the LCD, It should for the price. The little bungee z-Cords I ordered secure it, but defeats the rapid removal idea.

                  The circle notch cutout seems like an error for the Nikon D3s, since the "Info" button is on the outside. Aso needs one on the right for the "LV - Live view" and mike-memo record buttons that are side-by-side. I am capable of machininng thos notches myself, but I shouldn't have to. GET your blueprints right for the Nikon-D3s Zacuto.

                  Well this part is necessary to attach the ziFinder. The zFinder 2.5 is great, that works as intended, I can even shoot stills while in Live View mode.

                      I'm sure it works fine with the canon 7d battery grip, but this does not fit the third party 7d grip. It's pretty over priced as well.
