  • 1Description

Mount a Z-Finder to your Panasonic GH3 or GH4 with this GH3 Z-Finder Frame Kit from Zacuto. Packaging together a dedicated mounting frame with the Gorilla Plate V2, users will be able to quickly and easily set up their camera for advanced video shooting.

  • Gorilla Plate V2

    The Zacuto Gorilla Plate V2 is a small camera mounting plate for small DSLR and mirrorless cameras. The plate provides mounting points for available Z-Finder mounting frames allowing you to attach a Zacuto Z-Finder to a camera such as the Panasonic GH3. Additional frame options allows the Z-Finder to be attached to a variety of DSLR cameras. The Gorilla plate features a rubberized top to provide good grip and prevent the camera from twisting on the plate. The 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw is captive, so you don't have to worry about it falling out when you remove the camera.

    The Gorilla Plate V2 also features three 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes for attaching it to a tripod or QR plate. The tripod mounting holes are off center, and if you need a centered tripod mounting hole, for use with some support rigs and matteboxes, you will need to purchase an available Zacuto Gorilla Plate Adapter. The Gorilla Plate V2 incorporates a vertical 15mm diameter rod port that can be used to clamp onto a 15mm rod, for use with various available camera support systems that feature a 15mm diameter vertical camera support rod. The clamping lever is ratcheting style, so you can fully tighten or loosen the clamp even when you can't completely rotate the knob.

    The camera plate is made from anodized aluminum so that it is lightweight and corrosion resistant.
    The rubberized top surface of the plate provides a a good grip to help prevent the camera from rotating while mounted to the Gorilla Plate.
    The Gorilla Plate V2 allows you to mount an available Z-Finder to DSLR and other small cameras by providing attachment holes for interchangeable Z-Finder Frames.
    The 15mm rod port allows you to mount the Gorilla Plate V2 to available camera support systems that use a 15mm vertical rod for the camera riser, such as the Zacuto Striker and Target Shooter.

Zacuto Z-GH3-FK reviews

GH3 Z-Finder Frame Kit is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from GH3 Frame Kit not always a good fit Zacuto makes quality products but I am finding that I just cannot use this particular kit. The articulating screen on the Lumix GH3 is something that is an absolute necessity for me as a videographer but when the kit is applied, it completely takes that ability away. While I may be able to use it in controlled environments, it isn't practical for applications where you need to frame shots from various vantage points. I will just have to purchase an adhesive frame to use my Z-Finder with this camera. I just didn't think this one out very well. I could have saved $125.00. Not Zacuto's fault...I should have researched the product a little more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't really fit the GH4 The zacuto frame stays too close to the little viewfinder, so you can't really attach the z-finder to the camera on it's own. You have to use the extender frames that come together when you buy a Zacuto Z-Finder. The GH4 has peaking and zebra, so the Zacuto is not that useful as it is when you film with a Canon DSLR for example. Furthermore, you can film looking into the viewfinder, which is amazing, despite the very little image.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What? I don't understand how the above reviewer gave the product a bad review when he was the one who ordered incorrectly..Zacuto can not be beat in terms of quality and usability. We use their Z Finders on our GH4s as well as Canon DSLRs with zero issues. Awesome stuff.
