    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 Mounting Frame for DSLRs w/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 Mounting Frame for DSLRs w/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....

              Fits my Canon EOS 5D Mark lll with the Canon BG-E11 battery grip perfectly and is built like someting NASA would create. Holds the Zacuto Z-Finder 3.0x Pro stably and reliably. What more could you want?!

              A Must Have for Canon 60D w/battery grip

                  Comments about Zacuto Z-Finder Mounting Frame for DSLRs w/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.

                      Thank you Zacuto

                          If you have a Z-Finder and a battery grip you really aren't left with much choice but to buy this. Well built but with an unreasonable price tag.

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.
