ZACUTO Z-FINDER 3X KIT
The Z-Finder Pro 3x is an optical viewfinder that allows DSLR cameras to have the correct form factor for video. This Z-finder will magnify the LCD screen by 3x and has a diopter for specific focus tuning. It cuts out any extraneous light and offers an initial point of stability by pressing your eye against our comfy, large eyecup. The Z-finder Pro 3x comes with a 40mm diameter Zacuto optical designed lens, anti-fog coated protective covers, and a mounting system designed for 3 inch LCD screens. (A 3.2 version is available.) The diopter allows you to dial in the focus to match your eye. If you need extra focal points you can use the included Z-Finder Extender Frames. These are semi-permanent stackable frames that attach to the body of the Z-Finder Pro and extend the Z-Finder glass further away from the LCD screen for people who are farsighted.
The 3x magnification is recommended in particular for users who are farsighted and may have problems seeing up close. If you wear strong reading glasses this is the model for you! The Z-Finder Pro 3x has a diopter range of -2.75 and up (unlimited with extender frames). Users with 20/20 vision can use either magnification. It is a personal preference. Your camera model is irrelevant when choosing between the 2.5x and 3x magnifications. If you are particularly nearsighted and have problems seeing distances or are just looking for a smaller magnification we recommend the Z-Finder Pro 2.5x. Far sighted users can still use the 2.5x model with the addition of the included Extender Frames.
The Z-Finder Pro attaches to your camera with the included Gorilla Plate V2 and Z-Finder 3" Mounting Frame for Small DSLR Bodies. (The Z-Finder Mounting Frame can also be attached to our DSLR Baseplate. ) The Gorilla Plate V2 attaches to the bottom of your camera using a ¼ 20 inch screw and has ¼ 20 inch screw holes underneath to attach a tripod plate. The metal Z-Finder Mounting Frame attachesto the Gorilla Plate V2 using the prrovided red thumb screws. The Z-finder itself pops on and off the Z-finder Mounting frame. No magnets or glue are used. The metal Z-Finder Mounting Frame is backed with rubber to prevent scratching or slippage. If you want to remove the entire mounting frame from your camera, you can do so by loosening the thumb screws and pulling up on the metal mounting frame to release.
