The EVF is compatible with all cameras with an HDMI output including the Panasonic AG-AF100, Sony FS100, Sony F3, Scarlet, Red One & Epic. This electronic viewfinder allows you to operate the DSLR camera or any camera with an HDMI port, 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 offset. 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, shorten your camera package, have your electronic viewfinder in the back of a dolly or crane detached from the rig for car shots and more.
EVF Snap - The EVF snap is our standard electronic viewfinder that has the Zacuto Z-Finder Frame built into the unit. The Z-Finder Pro or Jr. snaps on and off the monitor. Therefore, you can use the monitor as a small onboard monitor or as an electronic viewfinder by itself.
EVF Flip - The EVF Flip has a Z-Finder frame built into the unit that can be flipped open to 180 degrees. You can also pop off the Z-Finder and use the electronic viewfinder as a monitor similar to the EVF Snap. You can use the Z-Finder Pro or Jr. on this model as well. This is essential when working handheld with a producer or director so you can show him the shot without having to have him get his eye in the viewfinder. You just flip up and he can see the shot.
Z-Finder EVF - This is a complete electronic viewfinder. It includes the EVF Snap model and an optical viewfinder, which will snap onto the frame on the monitor. The optical viewfinder contains high quality 2.5x optics with anti-fog shields. The anti-fog is extremely important for reducing fog. It does not have a diopter but will include the Zacuto Z-Finder Extender Frames. The Extender Frames will get the focus close but might not be exact as you can’t dial it in with a diopter, as you can with the Z-Finder Pro models.
Z-Finder EVF Pro – This is a complete electronic viewfinder with a diopter. It includes the EVF Flip model and an optical viewfinder, which will snap onto the frame on the monitor and can flip up 180 degrees. The optical viewfinder contains high quality 2.5x optics with anti-fog shields and a diopter. The anti-fog is extremely important for reducing fog. It will also include extender frames. The Z-Finder Extender Frames allow you to further adjust the focal point 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. If you want to be able to use your Z-Finder on your camera LCD screen, you will need to purchase the gorilla plate and frame separately. It is not included in this kit.
*All electronic viewfinders include a standard hotshoe EVF mount, HDMI cable, rechargeable battery, battery charger, lens cloth and protection case. Additional mounts will be available for purchase; the mount needed will depend on your shooting needs.
