Zacuto has released a new Z-Finder optical viewfinder for the Canon C300 and C500 cinema cameras. The Z-Finder delivers 1.8x magnification of the LCD screen.
It attaches by using a foam padded sleeve that slides over the LCD screen of either the C300 or C500. The sleeve is secured into place with a bar clamp. It also includes a unique monitor lock clip to keep the LCD screen from moving forward when the Z-Finder is pressed against your eye.
The Z-Finder for the Canon C300 and C500 retails for $485 and is expected to ship mid-March. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
