Zacuto Z-FRM Reviews

Didn't stick on band new Canon 6D

By Gold Street

Date: 2015-09-14

Installed as per instructions to my brand new Canon 6D. Left 2 days. Mounted Z-Finder and the mount came off the camera. Tried to re-attach this time applying firmer pressure with my hands for 5 minutes before leaving overnight with a 5 pound weight on top but the same end result. Maybe I got a bad unit but the adhesive didn't work for me. I use a Battery Grip & don't want clunky mounting frames. I had no problems with a much cheaper LCD Viewfinder mounted on my 7D a few years ago...it's still works today. YMMV.

Good option for still/video shooters.

Compared with Zacuto's Z-frames, adhesive frames are a considerably less expensive and less obtrusive option. They are definitely a little finicky. One frame I applied and used immediately is holding fine on a polycarbonate camera, another that I applied with a 24-hour cure time (as specified by the instructions) to a magnesium camera came off. So they're not perfect, but they're quite functional. In use, the frames are solid. Manual focusing is vastly easier thanks to the magnification, and they make it easy to swap a single finder among multiple cameras. Since the frames encircle the screen, there's a chance that they'll touch the user's nose. A little disconcerting at first, but not uncomfortable. One thing to note is that Zacuto's instructions make it clear that LCD damage is possible when removing the frame. Not a high risk for a careful user, but definitely something to be aware of. Ultimately, I recommend these, but they're not drawback-free.

Encountered a few issues

I mounted the frame to my LCD screen and let it set overnight with pressure applied from a book as instructed. The first time I snapped on the Z-finder everything appeared to work great, however, I found it very difficult to snap the Z-finder off when I was finished. The Z-finder was too snug on the frame and as a result it took a great deal of force to release it. The real issue is that something has to absorb that pressure as you pull, and if you have a flip-out LCD as I do then you have to hold it very carefully or you will literally rip the LCD off your camera when you try to remove the Z-finder. I managed to get the Z-finder removed the first time but the second time I tried to use it the entire frame popped off the LCD, still attached to the Z-finder. Then I had to use a knife to wedge the frame off the Z-finder. I then tried re-setting the adhesive frame to the LCD but I fear it won't hold the same now that its come undone. So unfortunately this product -- while a cheaper alternative to the gorilla plate -- is a far inferior and unreliable solution in my experiences so far.

I bought two & already wish I had more!!

I'm a small business owner and use a Nikon D7000 on all my projects. I had been looking for a mount for my Zacuto Z-Finder. I also have a rig, so I was heavily researching Zacuto's Z-Finder Mounting Frame (in conjunction with the Gorilla plate). During my research I came across the adheasive mount. After reading through B&H's reviews, I was convinced. Because of it's slim profile and light weight, it received a number of positive reviews. I ordered two mounts (just incase one lost it's adhesive). I've already used it on a number of shoots and have noticed a drastic difference in the quality of my shots. When I was on a shoot, a Client came up to me and asked me where I had purchased my equipment. I would & have recommended this product to a friend.

The double-sided adhesive does NOT last. Be prepared to glue it down..

Used for 42 days in the Himalayas

I used this product for 42 days to film a team of climbers attempting to make the first ascent of an unclimbed mountains in the Himalayas. I chose this mount because it only weighed 6 grams, which was 152 grams less than the other mount that Zacuto offered at the time. It was also simple and didn't have any moving parts that I had to worry about. My camera was worn on the outside, ready to shoot, and didn't have any protection. This mount endured snow storms, melting ice, and repeated abuse from the rock as I was climbing. It stayed solid and reliable the entire time. My Z-finder was secure and never fell off. This is a great product from Zacuto. I prefer this over their bigger mounts.

Works great so far

I have a Canon 7D and the Zacuto 2.5x Z-finder. These worked together perfectly until I bought a battery grip for my 7D. The mount frame that's made for battery grips doesn't fit with off-market grips, which is what I got, so this was pretty much my only option. That was fine because I didn't really want to spend close to $$anyway. This adhesive frame seems to stick pretty well. I haven't used it for that long yet, so we'll see how good it keeps sticking.

A good solution for battery grip mounting

I wanted a cheaper way to attach the Zacuto Finder Pro 2.5 to my camera while using a battery grip. I didn't want to spend $$+ for the Zacuto extended frame. Instead, I bought this and some Z Bands. This is easy to use. Secure when applied, and way cheaper than the battery grip mount.

question

Will this stick to the A7's tiltable screen?
Asked by: Nicholas
Yes, that will work on the Sony a7. It is not specifically made for that camera so it will not fit exact. But it will attach to the LCD screen.

question

The mount will not fit my A6300 LCD, what is a better alternative for mounting the Z-finder on the A6000/A6300?
Asked by: Nicholas
Ahesive type z-FRM 3.0 is your only option i think. Buy few of them because they can peel off sometimes due to viewfinder snaping on to frame to tight. And also be careful not to break rotating screen when taking viewfinder off.

question

I have used a friends Zacuto Z finder and had trouble getting the Z finder off. Is there a certain way to do this so that i don't feel like I am going to break the camera?
Asked by: Stephen C.
Hey,It's best you shave one of the sides off. I use only this mount compared to the metal clamp it comes with. I pulled once when I first got it and it actually took off the glass on the LCD.The zacuto frame has two sides that has a lip. Just shave one side off. I sanded all of mine off. Not all the way though but just enough so it's easy to take the zacuto off but still enough grip to keep it mounted when your moving.Good luck!
