Zacuto Kameleon Overview

  • 1Description

Taking their micro-OLED Gratical technology a step further, Zacuto's Kameleon Micro-OLED EVF increases the resolution to a full 1920 x 1080, supporting frame rates up to 60p. The larger 0.71" micro-OLED diagonal panel, compared to previous Gratical EVFs, allows for the meaningful increase in resolution to Full HD while maintaining the same contrast ratio of 10,000:1 that you have come to expect from the Gratical line.

The Kameleon features 3G-SDI and HDMI inputs, making it an extremely versatile piece of gear ready for your signal path of choice. It supports 4K input via the HDMI port, and 1920 x 1080p60 via its 3G-SDI port. You can upload 1D and 3D LUTs, allowing you to clearly see the image as finally intended, even when feeding it a flat signal. It supports image tools such as histogram, peaking, false color, and zebra bars. Two ARRI-compatible rosettes with 1/4"-20 threading and a 1/4"-20 threaded hole provide you with flexible mounting choices. The micro-OLED display features calibration adjustments, while the viewfinder incorporates a diopter adjustment ring, supports drop-in diopters, and features a 4:1 zoom ratio. All in all, the Kameleon is an EVF ideally suited for use with a variety of cameras and rigs that use external power solutions.

    Zacuto Kameleon Reviews

    Kameleon Micro-OLED EVF is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the size, features and the customer support. So I had a previous review where I was having power issues. Turns out I got a faulty model and Zacuto reached out to me immediately. They sent me a loaner while they worked on getting me a new one. Since then I have received my replacement and it works very nicely. The software and features are very robust, but since this is my first EVF I have nothing to compare it to. I will say that the size is very nice up against my Blackmagic Pocket 4k. I think this will work well with my GH5 as well when I get the change to play with it. You still have to sort through how you are going to power it on your rig and still keep the rig small. It runs off Lemo and USB C power. One of the biggest reasons I went down this route is because my eye site is becoming really near sited as I get older and because this has a good range in the diopter I can see what I am doing very well. From an audio recording perspective I don't hear any noise coming from the internal fan so that is a good thing. Overall I feel like this is a nice piece of equipment that will last for many years. From a build perspective, the one thing I am on the fence about is the rosette mount teeth: I can't tell if they are plastic or metal but when I was mounting it I didn't quite feel like the teeth were making a perfect connection. I probably would have considered put all of the ports in one spot if I were them to help keep rigs nice and tight, BUT my guess is that is the only way to get this thing as small as it is. The trade off is worth it if that is the case. Nice job Zacuto.

    Will the usb c allow for image input on a camera like a Black Magic Pocket 4K? And/ or using to power the evf?
    Asked by: Padraic
    It will not. The USB-C connection is for uploading custom LUTs in to the unit. It will not see a video signal or work for power.

    Will this work with Red DSMC2 when shooting in 8k and 5k?
    Asked by: Khaled
    Yes, you should be able to use this with a RED Camera. Keep in mind that RED Camera modules output only up to an HD Signal through 3G-SDI or HDMI, but they can output that signal while shooting in 8K or 5K.
