Zacuto BlackMagic Pocket Camera Z-Finder
Designed for the BlackMagic Pocket Camera and its LCD
Earlier this year, BlackMagic introduced their Pocket Cinema Camera. This pocket sized camera with Super 16 digital sized sensor is packed with features! Barely had the camera hit the market before requests for a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Z-Finder started pouring in to Zacuto. They listened! Their standard DSLR Z-Finders didn’t fit perfectly, so they went back to the drawing board and created a new Z-Finder specifically designed to suit the shape and size of the Blackmagic Pocket Camera and its LCD.
They spent time to find ways to not only increase its potential over their competitors but do it at a less expensive price point. This new super lightweight design won’t weigh you or your camera down! The Blackmagic Pocket Camera Z-Finder comes with a Zacuto adhesive frame for the BMPCC’s 3.5” LCD screen. The Zacuto Z-Finder pops on and off the frame for quick shooting. When not in use, the Z-Finder can hang around your neck with the included lanyard so it is always close by.
This Z-Finder model also includes a convenient storage bag and a newly designed sun mask to reduce the possibility of damage to your camera LCD screen. Zacuto has completely redesigned its optics system to include three glass diopters that can be used to alter the amount of optical correction needed depending on your eyesight. This state-of-the-art eyesight correction technology slides in front of the lens of your Z-Finder making it custom to your vision. The BMPCC Z-Finder includes 4 diopters, 0, +1, +2, and +3 so you can correct it to your vision, right out of the box. You’ll be able to purchase an additional -1, and/or +4 diopter if needed.
The most important part of all is their newly improved anti-fog production formula that is coated on all of their new diopters. The 0 diopter gives you fog protection with no optical correction. It doesn’t matter how good your optical viewfinder is, if it fogs, it’s game over. It’s the single most important factor in making a viewfinder purchasing decision. You can take their patent pending fog protection formula from an air conditioned interior to the most humid exterior and it’s guaranteed not to fog. These fog filters diopters are really truly amazing!
