  • Overview

    The Z-Finder Jr is one of Zacutoメs Optical Viewfinders that allows DSLR cameras to have the correct form factor for video. It offers 2.5x focusable magnification, a 40mm diameter Zacuto optical designed lens, an eyecup preventing extraneous light leakage, and a field of view perfectly matched to 3" LCD screens. The Z-Finder Jr. does not have a diopter instead it uses Z-Finder Extender Frames to adjust the focal point. The Z-Finder Jr's focal point is -2.75 and up (unlimited with extender frames). The Z-Finder Extender Frames attach to the skirt of the Z-Finder Jr. and allow you to semi-permanently stack the frames until the LCD screen is in focus for you. The Z-Finder Jr. uses a mounting bracket that must be sandwiched in between a tripod plate and the camera. The bracket mounts to the ᄐ 20" screw on your tripod plate and the actual Jr. is held in place with pressure from the fork of the bracket it sits in. You also have the option to mount the Z-Finder Jr. using the Z-Finder Mounting Frame (snap fit adhesive mounting frame) which is also included.

    General Features:

    •     DSLR Optical Viewfinder
    •     Fits 3" LCD Screens
    •     2.5x Magnification
    •     -2.75 Focal Point
    •     40mm Diameter Lens
    •     Lightproof Eyecup
    •     Mounting Bracket
    •     Extender Frames


    Zacuto also added a lanyard hook on the outside of the Z-Finder Jr. so you can attach a Zacuto lanyard to it. This allows for the user to quickly take the Z-finder Jr. off and on when needed.


    Warnings: If you are going to be moving between extreme environments, it is suggested that you use an anti-fog material such as the Clarity® Fog Eliminator Towelettes. The Z-finder is a magnifier and as such will magnify the sun and could damage the 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 sun magnification

    PLEASE NOTE: The Z-Finder JR (with included mounting bracket) will only work on small body DSLRs such as the Canon 5D/7D. If you would like to use a Z-Finder JR on a small body DSLR with a battery grip, or a taller body camera like the Canon 1D Mark IV, you will have to use the Gorilla Plate, as well as the battery grip frame or taller frame, or the snap fit mounting adhesive frame. The mounting bracket that is included with the Z-Finder JR only works on small body DSLR cameras.
