    Comments about Zacuto GH3/GH4 Z-Finder Pro Optical Viewfinder:

    I've been using the LCDVF version of viewfinder for many years on my Canon DSLR's as well as on my GH4. It's worked great but it's held on by the magnetized frame. I recently purchased a 2nd GH4 and decided I should step up to this Z-Finder. It was easy to mount and line up and it is excellent quality. I did add 1 of the extensions because it mounts very close to the eye piece of the GH4 & by doing so it added a large enough gap to mount easier. My only complaint is that once it's snapped in place, it is a bit difficult to remove. The best way I have found to remove it is to squeeze it from the bottom and that helps release it. That's not an issue that should prevent you from using it though because it really is a high end product.

    Dont Settle For Anything Less

    Comments about Zacuto GH3/GH4 Z-Finder Pro Optical Viewfinder:

    Simple the best out there. For the price, it should be. It's well built and very secure not like magnetized ones that come off all the time. The zfinder stays in place. Maybe the only downside is that its so secure its tough to pop out. I usually just unscrew it from the base when I need to flip the screen of my GH3. Either that or use an external monotor.

      Comments about Zacuto GH3/GH4 Z-Finder Pro Optical Viewfinder:

      I use it for my Panasonic GH4. I'm impressed by the overall quality. It's exactly what I needed for my camera.Take care with the extensions, go and install one by one, and check if it's ok with your vision, because it's quite hard to deassemble those extensions after.

        Comments about Zacuto GH3/GH4 Z-Finder Pro Optical Viewfinder:

        What can I say...Zacuto makes the best products for film makers and professionals. The Z finder works flawlessly with the new GH4 and is critical for stability and accurate focus. There is a little bulk to it, but I don't see any alternatives that work half as well. Zacuto products aren't cheap, but they are worth the money. They never fail and are solid as a rock. I'd highly recommend the Z finder and I'd buy it again in a flash.

          The viewfinder works well on the GH3 but the instructions leave a lot to be desired - they need to be more descriptive and proscriptive concerning adjustment etc. Otherwise, good product.

          Comments about Zacuto GH3/GH4 Z-Finder Pro Optical Viewfinder:

          Got this to help with focusing and to add stabilization while shooting handheld. Well constructed. A little heavy with the plate, but not too bad. Took me awhile to get it to line up properly (the instructions didn't really help), but once I got it right, it works great.
