Zacuto Z-FIND-FS5 overview

  • 1Description

The FS5 Z-Finder for Sony FS5 Camera from Zacuto is made specifically for the monitor that is included with the Sony FS5. It features a magnification factor of two, and a diopter adjustment wheel for tuning the finder to your eye. The flip-up frame slides onto the viewfinder and locks into place. When you want to flip the Z-Finder up and out of the way without removing it, you flip the red lever at the bottom of the frame. A custom-designed and built 40mm optic magnifies the camera's screen, and the rubber eyecup allows you to press your eye comfortably against the viewfinder for added stability when shooting handheld.

The two included extension frames are used when the diopter adjustment is insufficient for people who are farsighted, and can be used one at a time or together. The included mounting bracket positions the Z-Finder for shoulder-mounted shooting. This Z-Finder comes with a lens cap, sun mask, protective boot, and Z-Finder dust cover. Two included replaceable anti-fog disks, one of which comes installed, help prevent the optics from fogging up.

Made specifically for the Sony FS5 LCD viewfinder screen
Diopter adjustment from -1 to +4
Two included extender frames for operators who are farsighted and need additional adjustment
Mounting bracket for shoulder-mounted shooting

    FS5 Z-Finder for Sony FS5 Camera is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp at last! With ageing eyes unless ones very strong spectacles (+3.0 dioptre) at a close distance the Sony PXW-FS5 LCD viewfinder a lack of perfect focus might be missed. I'm a very happy purchaser of this excellently-built Z-finder

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It makes the bracket fragile. I purchased this Zacuto viewfinder couple months ago, and the first shoot I had with it, I was pretty amazed by the quality of the material and also how great it was to have a good magnifier for that small LCD screen. It reminds me of the cool FS7's viewfinder, which I personally thought was a lack on the FS5 model. Although the quality of that piece of equipment, the FS5 cheap plastic arm bracket that connects the screen to the camera seems to be too fragile for that heavy bulky viewfinder. It happened twice that the bracket colapse with such a tiny impact and I had to ship it back to Sony to get a replacement one. I wish either the Zacuto viewfinder could be lighter or the FS5 bracket stronger. Plus, it feels like the incredible versatility allowing, in no time, to place your FS5 lcd monitor in different ways or flip it is now obstruct by the viewfinder. In conclusion, I would say: Cool piece of equipment with some nice features, but not properly think for this camera model yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but heavy This is my first Zacuto product and I am happy with the build quality except for the snapping in of the z-finder to the LCD clasp. To take it off feels like you have to force it and things tend to snap when you have to force it (you won't have to take it off unless you need to put the extenders or the fog lenses in). The other I found a down side is it takes a few seconds to turn the knob to loosen the screen to tilt it and then another few seconds to tighten it. Not a big deal but the weight of the z-finder makes it to where you have to tighten it into place where ever you tilt it. All that said, it is an important addition because the camera doesn't come with a sunshade or loupe on the LCD. The magnification also helps a lot. I would highly suggest getting the support plate because the camera's rod is plastic and will not last long with the z-finder. But the weight does un-balance the camera and with it on, it is left side heavy. A mic would counter this a little. All in all, its great with a few downs but I would recommend it.
