A few words about Grand Prize.
Festival Best of The Best get Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 2.5x for 3.2" (Value of $375)
With the convergence of DSLR filmmaking, there are many essential tools that are needed to get the correct form factor for video. When shooting video on a DSLR camera, you must use the LCD screen and you must use manual focus. The combination of a very small screen, manual focus, and razor thin shallow depth-of-field makes it very challenging to focus. When shooting in both outdoor and indoor settings, the sunlight and glares make it nearly impossible to see the LCD screen. Lastly, holding the camera out in front of you so that you can focus on the screen makes the camera unstable and shaky. With any camera, you want to bring it close to the body for stability.
The first essential item to help with these challenges is a DSLR Optical Viewfinder.
The Z-Finder Pro viewfinders offer a 40mm diameter Zacuto optical design lens, two anti-fog coating protective lens covers, a large eyecup preventing extraneous light leakage and a sturdy metal two piece mounting system.
The Gorilla Plate attaches to the bottom of your camera using the standard tripod screw hole. The Gorilla plate has (2) ¼ 20” threads on the bottom and a locking pin for mounting a tripod plate to quickly go between handheld and tripod. The Z-Finder Mounting Frame attaches to the Gorilla Plate using two thumb screws and gently presses on your LCD with rubber preventing any light leakage, as well as scratching. The mounting frame does not adhere to your camera. The Z-Finder Pro then snaps on and off the mounting frame for the ability to quickly move between photos and videos. The frame does not interfere with the cameras photo viewfinder.
The Z-Finder Pro focuses with a diopter; therefore you can dial in the exact focus for your eyes. If you need extra focal point, you can also use the Zacuto Extender Frames to extend the Z-Finder glass further away from the LCD screen. This is important for people who are farsighted and/or people who wear reading glasses. All Z-Finder Pro models have a list price is $395.00 and like all Zacuto products includes a lifetime warranty.
