    Comments about Zacuto GH3 Z-Finder Frame Kit:

    The zacuto frame stays too close to the little viewfinder, so you can't really attach the z-finder to the camera on it's own. You have to use the extender frames that come together when you buy a Zacuto Z-Finder.

    The GH4 has peaking and zebra, so the Zacuto is not that useful as it is when you film with a Canon DSLR for example. Furthermore, you can film looking into the viewfinder, which is amazing, despite the very little image.

    Comments about Zacuto GH3 Z-Finder Frame Kit:

    I don't understand how the above reviewer gave the product a bad review when he was the one who ordered incorrectly..Zacuto can not be beat in terms of quality and usability. We use their Z Finders on our GH4s as well as Canon DSLRs with zero issues. Awesome stuff.

    GH3 Frame Kit not always a good fit

    By Kirk

    Comments about Zacuto GH3 Z-Finder Frame Kit:

    Zacuto makes quality products but I am finding that I just cannot use this particular kit. The articulating screen on the Lumix GH3 is something that is an absolute necessity for me as a videographer but when the kit is applied, it completely takes that ability away. While I may be able to use it in controlled environments, it isn't practical for applications where you need to frame shots from various vantage points. I will just have to purchase an adhesive frame to use my Z-Finder with this camera. I just didn't think this one out very well. I could have saved $125.00. Not Zacuto's fault...I should have researched the product a little more.
