Zacuto Pro 2.5x Overview

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 the 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 nonstick rubber backing ensures a tight fit and prevents scratching of the LCD screen, so the entire Z-Finder snaps off easily when not in use.

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
Note:
The Z-finder is a magnifier and as such will magnify the sun and could damage the LCD screen if the sun is allowed to shine directly through the Z-finder lens. This is not a defect but a physical property. Caution should be taken to avoid sun magnification.

question

Will this fit the Sony RX 10 ll ? Thanks
Asked by: Jon F.
While this will technically fit the RX10 II, it is not advised to use this product with the camera since it has an articulated screen.

question

Can you turn the viewfinder 90 degrees to use the camera in a portrait orientation for vertical video?
Asked by: Jonathan L.
Thanks Manzell. I meant to ask... if I do rotate the camera completely 90 degrees, will the rubber eye cup of the viewfinder that goes against your face also be able to rotate in a way that I can still use the viewfinder?

question

Is this compatible with the GH4? I can't find any information comparing this with https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/970691-REG/zacuto_z_find_gh3_gh3_z_finder_pro.html target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/970691-REG/zacuto_z_find_gh3_gh3_z_finder_pro.html</a>
Asked by: James A.
You could use the Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 2.5x with the GH4, though you would need to purchase a separate mounting plate. The Zacuto GH3/GH4 Z-Finder Pro Optical Viewfinder would already come with the mounting plate needed for the GH4. That would be the difference between the two.

question

Will this fit a Sony NEX 5?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, Zacuto does not list the Sony Alpha NEX-5 Mirrorless Digital Camera on the compatibility chart. I cannot guarantee the Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 2.5x would be compatible with your camera. It is designed for 3 screens, so it would be the option I would recommend trying with your camera. If it does not work, we do have a 30-Day Return Policy so you could return the item for an exchange or refund.

question

will the Z-Finder Pro 2.5x by Zacuto work with a canon 70d
Asked by: Anonymous
I purchased the Z-Finder Pro 3 for my Canon 70D and it fit but not properly. I would contact Zacuto or someone in the B&H store and have them confirm that it fits the 70D
