Zacuto Offers EVF Mounting Solutions

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Jun 15, 2011) - Zacuto's Z-Finder EVFs are now shipping across the world, but the next challenge is figuring out the best way to mount your EVF to your camera rig. Zacuto has developed three elegant mounting solutions to this mounting dilemma: the EVF Standard Mount, the EVF Rod Mount and the EVF Tri-mount Kit. But it doesn't stop there, with all the Zacuto tinker toys, you can build your own mount to satisfy your shooting needs.

"The EVF mounts are great because we start by mounting to a solid foundation instead of the weak hot shoe. Our mounts are designed to work with our baseplates as well as other rig manufacturers 15mm rod systems. Using our quick-release rod system as well as a newly designed tilt and pan lock pivot point, the EVF's placement and stability are rock solid," says Zacuto operations manager and product designer, Jens Bogehegn.

Zacuto's EVF mounting solutions are designed to be versatile. Even if you don't own a Zacuto rig, you can still mount an EVF with at least one of the three EVF mounting configurations or again, design your own. The EVF Standard Mount was developed to work specifically with Zacuto's DSLR Baseplate and the EVF Rod Mount was designed to function with any standard 15mm rod-based camera stabilization rig. The EVF Tri-mount Kit allows the user to mount their EVF three different ways. The Tri-mount Kit comes with all the parts required to mount your EVF in the Standard Mount configuration but also allows you to use the EVF in an extended viewfinder position while on a tripod or dolly. This kit also gives the user the ability to quickly mount the EVF to the hot shoe mount of your camera.
