            Z-Finder EVF Video Series ~ Part 1 "Introduction" In Part 1 of the video series detailing “The Evolution of the Z-Finder EVF, ” Steve Weiss & Jens Bogehegn give an “Introduction” on the new EVF electronic viewfinder: a versatile 2-piece system. ABOUT ZACUTO'S EVF VIEWFINDER Zacuto is changing the game again! We are transforming the form factor of DSLR cameras for video use with our Z-Finder EVF. The Z-Finder EVF is a 3.2” high resolution monitor that will be used in conjunction with all the Z-Finder models. The Z-Finder EVF allows you to operate the DSLR camera with the correct form factor for video with the camera "in-line" to your rod system (the most stable way) and your eye in the Z-Finder EVF. This is the way all film cameras and ENG video cameras were operated and we, at Zacuto, believe this should be the way DSLR cameras should be operated. It will enhance the stability, give you better resolution, allow you to get your eye where it most comfortably needs to be, enable low mode shooting, have your EVF in the back of a dolly or crane, detached from the rig for car shots and more. SPECIFICATIONS: * Actual 16×9 screen * 800×480 resolution * .087 dot pitch * Focus Assist * False Color Exposure Assist * HDMI loop through * Operates off Canon LP-E6 Camera battery (1/2 day power) * Includes a hot shoe mount or optional articulating arm kit. * Can mount to other manufacturer's rig (RedRock, Cinevate, Letus, etc.) via 1/4 20 screw, 15mm rod or articulating arm * All Z-Finder models snap on and off the EVF and can be used interchangeably between the camera screen or EVF screen * Includes Zacuto designed right-angled HDMI cable * Professional grade construction * 12 volt external power Zacuto Z-Finder EVF 3.2” monitor has higher resolution than DSLR LCD screens. These screens have a resolution of 640×480 on a 3:2 aspect ratio screen. Therefore, you only effectively see the resolution at 640×360 in 16×9. The Zacuto Z-Finder EVF monitor resolution is a true 800×480 making the resolution 56% greater than the on-board DSLR camera screens. The Zacuto monitor also has a tighter dot pitch which also improves the quality, making you see a much tighter pixel pattern.

A discounted price will be available for existing Z-Finder users and a combo-kit (Z-Finder with EVF) will be available at a discounted price (TBD).
