Zacuto Z-Finder for C300 and C500

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.

ItĀ 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.

You can see the new Z-Finder and other Zacuto C300 and C500 accessories in the video below. [click to continue…]

With the help of my uncharacteristically cooperative kids, I shot the above short, Nerfed, in a few hours using only the Sony A7 and A7R (along with a couple of shots with the GoPro Hero3 that were necessary for the plot). After using these cameras for this fun project and in other ways over the past few weeks, Sony makes a great case for its next generation of full frame cameras. [click to continue…]

If you don’t know now to create a GIF file from still images, check out this short video on how to create them in Photoshop. Even if your files don’t align properly, you can use Photoshop’s auto-align feature to line up hand-held shots.
