Zacuto Z-FIND-PRO2 overview

  • 1Description

Zacuto's Z-Finder Pro 2.5x optical viewfinder is a necessary tool for shooting sharp, stable video on DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D MkII, 7D, Nikon D90, D300s and others. Whether shooting handheld or on a tripod, the Z-Finder Pro turns your camera's 3" LCD screen into a clear, easy-to-focus viewfinder that lets you see your image in magnified detail even under the brightest sunlight. Just as crucially, the Z-Finder Pro provides an extra degree of handling comfort and a crucial point of contact--between camera and eye--that adds stability to any handheld video.

The Pro 2.5x version offers an adjustable diopter that enlarges the LCD image by a factor of 2.5, so you can see every detail for pinpoint focus. The diopter's extended range of -4.75 and up makes it especially useful for those who are nearsighted. The Z-Finder attaches to your camera via the included Gorilla Baseplate and mounting frame, which mount to the bottom of your camera using a standard 1/4"-20 screw. A non-stick rubber backing ensures a tight fit and prevents scratching of the LCD screen, so that the entire Z-Finder snaps off easily when not in use. Once detached, the unit can hang conveniently around your neck from the included lanyard.

Note: For use with taller-bodied cameras such as the Canon 1D Mark IV and Nikon D3S, an optional Z-MFT mounting frame is required.

2.5x magnification
40mm diameter lens for excellent light throughput
Allows DSLR cameras to have correct form factor for video
Field of view perfectly matches 3" LCD screen size
Diopter range is -4.75 and up (unlimited with extender frames)--ideal for nearsighted shooters 1

    Zacuto Z-FIND-PRO2 reviews

    Z-Finder Pro 2.5x is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 163.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Design I'm not happy with the fact that the Z-Finder Pro 2.5x says it works with the 5D MkII, but that the parts don't actually fit well with the MkII frame. For the price I paid, I would have liked the parts to accurately and securely fit to my camera. The mounting frame doesn't fit perfectly and ends up covering part of the LCD screen. You also have to raise the mounting frame up really high so that it fits around the LCD screen - to a point that's not fully secure. You have the option of separately purchasing a mounting frame customized for the 5D MKII, but if Zacuto's advertising that the Z-Finder works with the MarkII, they should just include the appropriate frame in the kit.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but overpriced I bought this after not being able to get my eyes focused properly with the much less expensive LCDVF. The diopter, z-finder's big selling point, was not strong enough to make it work without additional 'spacers'. It's a nice unit. Image is sharp. With the optional 'snap in' mount, it's pretty manageable on my 5D2 and 7D. The metal mounting bracket is pretty worthless if you are not (nearly) exclusively shooting video. I would like the option of not paying for that. It's a good unit. If your eyes aren't perfect, there may not be other options. Based on the crazy price and clumsy bracket, it's 3 stars instead of 4 or more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done I feel it is a bit over priced for what it is. However it does help keep your video shots in focus. The 2.5x is a great size if you want to see the full picture your framing and not get distracted by the pixels on the screen of your DSLR. Over all I am happy with the product. I will say that the dioplar is over rated on this particular finder. The dioplar does very little to correct for vision problems, you end up having to add plastic spacers which make the finder stick out much further from camera body. Also wish the mounting plate had a few more holes for mounting locations that would work better for XLR apaters.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, quality build I put off buying a viewfinder for my T2i for a while, but I'm happy I made the investment. The z-finder is well made, sturdy and has a comfortable eye cup. I opted for the 2.5x version just out of personal choice. Why 4 stars and not 5? The Gorilla plate has a couple issues I find annoying: First, as everyone has mentioned, it blocks the battery compartment. Next, the z-mount on the Gorilla frame is put into place by 4 set screws, and it just barely fits my T2i. However, the plate itself is stout, made entirely of metal, and mounts well to the camera. Overall, a great product, and worth the financial investment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential accessory for shooting video It's hard to understand the advantage in using a Z-Finder until you've actually tried it. In short, it makes shooting video, obtaining focus, and using your DSLR a whole lot easier. The Z-Finder magnifies the LCD screen and lets you look at it through a traditional viewfinder mechanism, which is a more natural way to use the camera than holding it away from you and trying to frame and focus on the small screen. The 2.5x magnification is perfect for your eye to take in everything in the frame and to achieve sharp focus. The only tiny drawback is that it's a little pricey. The Z-Finder is everything it's supposed to be and you will wonder how you shot without it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mine eyes have seen the glory! I own a Canon 7D that I use for filmmaking. Let me put it like this without all the extra hullabaloo...the Zacuto Z-finder Pro is a must for anyone using a DSLR for filming! I'm nearsighted and wear glasses but I can take them off with this puppy and that's a HUGE plus! The quality and construction are great and it's worth every penny. Looking forward to getting a Zacuto rig very soon also but for now the Z-finder pro is fine with my current rig as well as tripod. Stop thinking about it and get one. And if you wear glasses like I do, it feels good to ditch them when you're shooting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I guess So far it's seems great. I like the construction it of it, and the way it attaches to the camera. But right when I got it, I ran into a problem. The plastic piece which is framed in the shape of a rectangle in which one looks through, isn't so secure since it can be replaced, so I need to shake it back into allignment in order to see the image in the shape of the screen. I can still see through it, but, it would be better if it was alligned. That's something that can be fixed, but it's a little annoying. But overall, as a viewfinder, it does what it needs to do, and it's a solid, cool looking, piece of equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Z-Finder Pro is Essential I've been shooting with my Canon t2i for several months now. I have put off purchasing the Z-Finder due to the cost, but recently needed to shoot a music video with lots of movement and people tracking. The difference is night and day when it comes to shooting by looking at the lcd viewfinder and looking through the Z-Finder. I've shot countless clips without the Z-Finder that looked good essentially, but after transferring the files onto my computer were out of focus. The only drawback I've encountered so far is that the battery compartment is blocked on the Canon t2i, but it hasn't become and issue so far. Great Product
