Zacuto Z-ACR Reviews

No exposure tools

By Ben
Rated 2 out of 5

This would be an incredible system, however it lacks waveform (or any exposure tools). The name EVF Pro is deceiving because a pro shoot involves exposure monitoring tools. The Small HD Focus offers a complete line of features and can be bought on sale for $299.
