The Zacuto Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) is a 3.2 high resolution monitor designed to be used in conjunction with any Z-Finder model. The EVF is compatible with all cameras that have an HDMI output, including most DSLRs, the Panasonic AF-100, Sony F3, Canon C100/300/500, RED ONE, RED Scarlet, RED Epic and many, many more. The EVF is compatible with the Blackmagic Camera (and other SDI only cameras) with use of a converter like the Blackmagic HD-SDI to HDMI mini converter. The EVF allows you to operate with your camera "in-line" with your rod system and an offset viewfinder in front of your eye. We believe this traditional film camera and ENG camera style of shooting is the most stable and comfortable. Now we can work this way with any camera! The EVF enhances the stability of any set up, gives you better resolution and focus ability, allows you to get your eye where it most comfortably needs to be, enables low mode shooting, and shortens a shoulder mounted camera package. With an external viewfinder, you're no longer trapped behind your camera. You can have your camera on a dolly or crane or in a car or anywhere and have the EVF in your hand.
The EVF Snap has the standard Zacuto Z-Finder Frame built into the unit. Any Z-finder model, Pro or Jr (Both Sold Separately), can snap on and off the EVF. You can use the EVF as a small on-board monitor or in combination with any Zacuto Z-finder (Sold Separately).

A Z-finder is a magnifier and as such, do not allow sunlight to enter the Z-Finder, for even a moment, while it is attached to the EVF. The light can be magnified by the lens and potentially cause damage to the EVF screen. Always use the included Sun Mask and immediately put the lens cap over lens when not in use.
