Zacuto Z-FIND-C1 overview

  • 1Description

The Zacuto C100 Z-Finder Pro is an optical viewfinder for the Canon C100 LCD screen. It features a 40mm diameter lens that magnifies the LCD by 1.8x, and a diopter that enables fine-tuning to match your eyesight. Three stackable, semi-permanent extender frames are included to mount the viewfinder further away from the LCD, for farsighted users. The C100 Z-Finder Pro cuts out any extraneous light and provides a point of stability when pressed up against the eye. One anti-fog coated protective cover is installed, and a second one is included.

The mount system consists of a frame that slides onto the LCD when it is articulated, and the viewfinder snaps on and off the frame. When off, you can hang it around your neck on an included lanyard. A strong, stretchy Z-Band more securely attaches the viewfinder to the camera and provides the pull necessary to position the LCD and viewfinder at any angle.

This viewfinder is designed to fit when using the standard battery that comes with the C100; larger batteries may prevent clearance.

Note: The C100 Z-Finder Pro is a magnifier and could damage the camera's 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 direct sunlight. Proper use of the supplied lens cap and sun mask will dramatically reduce but not eliminate risk.

Note: The C100 Z-Finder Pro is not compatible with the C100 Mark II.

    Zacuto Z-FIND-C1 reviews

    C100 Z-Finder Pro is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Addition to C100 I appreciate this Z-Finder by Zacuto for my Canon C100 camcorder. It definitely helps with focus. It is slightly heavy and the Z bands are needed to hold it upright. I wonder how long though it will take for the z bands to feel some wear for me to need replacements. The magnification does really help -- it also can reveal some bright pixels that you would not see from just reviewing your lcd screen. That's a little scary at first but nice to know that its not recorded that way. There is just a lot of pixels on the C100 sensor. I'm glad I have this as an aid for my focusing needs. I do feel it was a necessary buy. Thanks B & H!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Z-Finder The Z-Finder is a good alternative to purchasing an EVF or external monitor for your C100. However it does not work too well when used with the C-Shooter. It forces you to turn your head at a very uncomfortable angle. My solution for this problem was to mount a Manfrotto Quick Release on the C-Shooter, and mount it at a slight angle so the Z-Finder lines up with your eye. If I didn't put the Manfrotto mount on the C-Shooter, I would have definitely returned this item. Additionally, both Z-bands broke within an hour of attaching them to the camera. Zacuto was great with replacing the Z-bands for free and in a very timely fashion, and the new Z-bands work great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid B student For the price I was expecting a little more WOW! The eye cup fits nicely, the spacers are a bit strange. The elastic stays work moderately well to hold the viewfinder in place while moving but by no means is a perfect solution. It is solidly built. I was worried that the sliding on and off of the unit would start to weaken the Canon C100 viewfinder. I hope it doesn't over time, it has put a few scuffs on the surface. It definitely assists with handheld shooting in bright sun and that is mostly why I got it. I wish it had a flip up eye piece so you could move from at the eye shooting to extended arm shooting.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Z-Bands break easy; need work. Things I like: When detaching the LCD slip-on mount from the eye-piece, it works great to block light and semi-privatize your LCD screen in crowded places while shooting. works great to give you what you need to get critical focus. Things I don't like: The weight of the Z-Finder on the LCD screen, without the Z-bands, means your C100 LCD screen and attached Z-Finder could flop around and twist and potentially snap off or bust. I haven't had this happen, but it's worried me a few times. Second thing is that my Z-Bands, which help neutralize the weight in order to get stabilized tilt on the LCD, broke the first time I put it on. The rubber it's made from only stretches so much. Pull too hard to place it into the Z-Finder corners...and it will snap. For me, the rubber string snapped right at the metal ring clamp. I immediately called Zacuto and they shipped me two extra pair for free. Nice. But two days into shooting, my second pair snapped again. Now I only have one good pair left. These rubber Z-bands have a calculated tension, but they really need some work to meet the durability demands of shooting in the field.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I needed I don't shoot in sunlight without it, or anytime actually. It's pricey, but it fits perfectly, its light, and most important it gives me full frame/no cropping. The Z-Bands are obviously a bandaid fix to allow positioning of the viewfinder. They work o.k. but the first time I tried to remove the finder from the camera the Z-Bands separated from the crimped ring that holds them together. I emailed Zacuto and they promptly mailed me a new set of Z-Bands at no charge. So far those work with no issue.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good I would agree with others that this puts the camera further away from you if shooting handheld. From my news days 30 years ago though you can rest your elbows into your abs for short intervals and its fine. On a tripod its very good and I think a must, especially in bright light. I find the Canon EOS C100 very hard to focus under any circumstance and I'm not sure why. It always looks very soft too me no matter what method of viewing. I use peaking a lot. The Zacuto Z straps while useable are probably the biggest downside but you really don't need them. As always, it depends on what applications you are using this under and how you were trained. I simply prefer a viewfinder with eyecup. Hope this helps you make an informed decision.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good issues Zacuto's products are the best. I really wanted to like this z-finder and overall it's a great product and works as advertised. The built quality is excellent, the optics are excellent. However, the biggest issue with this z-finder isn't Zacuto's fault really but the camera's ergonomics. When you attach this z-finder it extends extremely far from the camera. This isn't an issue when you're on sticks but becomes a real problem when going handheld as it forces you to hold the camera far from your body which eventually kills your back. It also makes using a rig almost impossible. Also, as others have mentioned, the band thing...though it does work...doesn't instill much confidence as you can tell they could snap very easily.Also, because this z finder is so well built, it's heavy and I'm still not 100% confident that with extended use, wouldn't damage the LCD's hinge. Overall, it's a great product that does it's best with an economically challenged issue, but just introduces too many issues.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No adjustment in the diopta The Z-Finder does help in bright light, but the main reason I purchased it was to assist with focusing. The diopta adjusting wheel does rotate but makes no difference to the picture. There is no adjustment via the wheel located at the top of the unit. I should be able to turn the adjustment and see it come in and out of focus. There is no difference for one extreme to the other. Not worth $.
