Zacuto Releases Z-Finder Frame for Canon 5D Mark III and Nikon D800

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - May 30, 2012) - Always on top of the latest in DSLR innovations, Zacuto has done it again! As camera technology changes, you can count on Zacuto's products to adapt and evolve. They've just released a new Z-Finder frame that will allow your Z-Finder to work with the larger 3.2" screen sizes on new cameras such as the Canon 5D Mark III and Nikon D800.

The cameras have increased screen size 0.2" compared to their previous models like the highly popular Canon 5D Mark II.

The new frames work with all current Z-Finders, but must be used in conjunction with the Gorilla plate. The Z-Finder frame attaches to the Gorilla plate with two thumbscrews and the Gorilla plate is attached to the bottom of your camera. If you're just getting into DSLR filmmaking Zacuto offers the new frame as a package with the Z-Finder Pro 3x for 3.2" screens and the Z-Finder pro 2.5x for 3.2" screens.

"We always try to think of our existing customers when developing Zacuto products. We knew we wanted to adapt the new 3.2" frame to work with the industry standard Z-Finder DSLR optical viewfinder," said Mandy Rogers, VP of Sales & Marketing. She explained that Zacuto didn't want to make their customers buy a whole new Z-Finder, but wanted to make sure they could continue using it with the new screen sizes. It's all about being user-friendly. She added, "You can just buy this frame to use with your Z-Finder Pro."

The Z-Finder works by magnifying your camera's built-in LCD screen so you can use it as a viewfinder. This comes in handy when working in the field under harsh daylight conditions or when focus is critical. The new frames are available for sale at or through any Zacuto dealer. The frame itself is only $60. If you're just getting started and need to pick up a new Z-Finder packages start at $395.
