Zacuto EVF Pro Overview

The Zacuto Z-Finder EVF Pro (3.2”) is an electronic view finder with a TFT LCD display and offers a resolution of 800 x 480 and 16.7M color. Consisting of an EVF Flip model and an optical viewfinder, the EVF Pro allows you to operate a DSLR or any other camera with an HDMI port, by offering an image as seen by the camera itself. Designed to be attached ‘in-line’ to your rod system, it aids in stable and efficient shooting, and ensures correct form factor for the video. The EVF can be used with all Z-Finder models and is compatible with virtually all cameras with an HDMI output, including the Canon C100/C300/C500, Sony FS100, Sony F3, Scarlet, Red One & Epic, Panasonic AG-AF100..

Featuring 180° flip-up mechanism, the optical viewfinder can turn over to one side, thereby allowing you to view the 3.2” monitor from a distance. The optical viewfinder with an eye-cup offers 2.5x zoom power and has an anti-fog shield for reducing fog. The built-in diopter ring comes as a help to users who use reading glasses (or far-sighted people) to adjust focusing, thereby offering a clear view. The Z-Finder Extender Frames allow you to further adjust the focal length of the Z-Finder by semi-permanently stacking the frames via a snap fit on to the skirt of the Z-Finder until the LCD screen is in focus for you. Users with high-powered reading glasses would find the extender frames useful.

Using the Zebra stripes feature, you can adjust the IRE level of displayed image. The Focus Assist sharpens the edges of the objects in focus. With the ‘Blue only’ option, you can view the blue channel and calibrate the monitor using SMPTE color bars. The anamorphic setting ’un-squeezes' the anamorphic image produced by the anamorphic lens for viewing in the EVF. It includes aspect ratio frame lines such as 1.33:1 (4×3), 1.66:1 (15×9), 1.78:1 (16×9), 1.85:1 (35mm theatrical), 2.35:1 (Cinemascope). You can refer to the ‘action safe markers’ to avoid cropping of critical parts of image.  A second HDMI port means you can also loop the image to another monitor.

The battery level indicator with selectable on/off display icon appears automatically when the battery power reaches 10% remaining. You can update your EVF firmware via a USB port. 3 assignable function buttons allow you to program up to 3 functions. Using Live Menu Preview, you can view changes during menu changes. The kit comes with a standard hot-shoe EVF mount, HDMI cable, rechargeable battery, battery charger, lens cloth and protection case.

CAUTION
Direct sunlight can burn spots onto the EVF screen. A black disk with a 16x9 mask cut out that will reduce the amount of light entering your EVF is supplied that helps to avoid this. It does not eliminate the sun 100% and there is still the potential to burn your screen, but it will help a great deal. Precaution must be taken, and the Z-Finder lens cap must be used at all times when the EVF is not in use. For current owners, please contact the manufacturer for a free protective disk

question

Can this be connected to a BlackMagic Ursa Mini?
Asked by: James A.
Its a standard HDMI connection from evf to camera. I would go for the BM evf vs this as there is a lag in this I didn't like.

question

How long does the Zacuto Li-ion rechargeable battery lasts with the Zacuto Z-Finder on? Is two batteries enough for a whole production day?
Asked by: JP
If you are talking about the Zacuto Z finder EVF Pro then we are on the same page.4 to 5 hours of continuous shoot on one battery with my estimate of 25 to 30% charge left.If you are conservative, one battery will last the whole day. Turn it off when there is a break in the shoot.I have a bad habit of leaving it on all the time till the shoot is totally done. I usually carry 6 battery for my canon 5d Mk-III. which uses the same battery as the Zacuto evf pro. I use the original battery the came with evf as back-up and use only LP-E6 type battery whether by Canon or Watson both are available here at B&H.Two battery will be enough. Hope this help s.

question

What's the difference between this pro version EVF and the other Zacuto Z-Finder EVF that sells for $764.75? Anyone using either of these with an FS-700?
Asked by: Jim
Comes with the eye piece, and I think has focus assist where the cheaper one doesn't. I works pretty good, I use it with the 700. it's hard to tell when your really in focus, a little lag from the HDMI maybe because of my type of cable, not sure if that is normal. I would recommend the Zacuto Gratical HD Micro OLED EVF it's a bit pricey but worth being able to tell if your shots are in focus with the hi-res screen.

question

Could I connect this to a Canon 1D-C? Thanks.
Asked by: Yoni P.
The Z-Finder EVF takes an HMDI input signal. The 1D-C has an HMDI output for monitors, external recorders, etc, so yes. They should be compatible. If you live close to a B&H you can bring your canon to the store and test it out. If you do not, I can almost 100% guarantee it will work. I use one with a 5D and have never had issues. If you need more convincing, call Zacuto's customer service. They are very friendly and will be able to help out.
