New Zacuto Z-Finder With Anti-Fog Protective Shields

With the Rising Demand of the Z-Finder, High-End DSLR Camera Accessories Manufacturer, Zacuto USA, Introduces the New Z-Finder Pro With Anti-Fog Protective Covers

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - November 23, 2010) - Zacuto USA, camera accessories manufacturer, has released a new Z-Finder Pro. The new optical viewfinder offers 2.5x or 3x focusable magnification, a 40mm diameter Zacuto optical designed lens, an anti-fog coating protective shield, an eyecup preventing extraneous light leakage, a diopter and a field of view perfectly matched to 3" LCD screens. The Z-Finder Pro includes:

  • 3 Extender Frames
  • Gorilla Plate with DSLR Short Body Frame (compatible with DSLR cameras: Canon 5D MKII, Canon 7D, Canon Rebel T2i, and Nikon D3s and D7000)
  • Lens Cap & Protective Boot
  • Lanyard Hook and Lanyard
  • 3x (or 2.5x) lens with an anti-fog coating protective cover
  • 3 Extra anti-fog coating protective covers

With the new Z-Finder Pro, Zacuto Product Designers Steve Weiss and Jens Bogehegn surpassed the fog coating process built in a lens, and discovered a new way to protect the lens, yet still eliminate fog.

"We've spent over a year and half to come up with the Zacuto anti-fog formula," says Steve Weiss, Product Designer for Zacuto, USA. "The key to creating an anti-fog lens is to create a texture on the surface so that moisture cannot collect."

Thus, Weiss and Jens Bogehegn, Zacuto Product Designers, developed inexpensive anti-fog shields for customers to use as expendables in case of loss, scratch or damage to the covers.

"We found that the texture of the protective cover can rub off," says Product Designer Jens Bogehegn. "Whether you have an older Z-Finder or Pro Series, anti-fog lens or non-anti fog lens, these shields will protect your existing lens and make any Z-Finder anti-fog."

The new anti-fog protective covers serve two purposes, to protect the actual lens from damage and to prevent fogging. For existing Z-Finder DSLR viewfinder owners, the Anti-Fog Protective Cover Upgrade Kit comes with a 3-pack of anti-fog protective covers, a lens cap and newly designed eyecup to fit all covers.

Zacuto, USA has also created a video to demonstrate how to use and set-up the new anti-fog protective cover upgrade kit. To learn more about the New Z-Finder with Anti-Fog Protective Cover Upgrade Kit or watch the video go to:
