This version was designed specifically for use with the Sony BURANO, however, it is based on a long standing existing product that has been around for many years. The Z-Finder features a flip-up design and a diopter wheel for focusing. It also includes two extender frames for farsighted use and can be used with separately available drop-in diopters for further correction.

You could use the Z-Finder for Sony BURANO instead of the included loupe. It should still work with most of the third-party LCD bracket modifications that are now available for the BURANO.

According to Zacuto, the finder’s large, lightproof eyecup also increases the stability of your handheld footage by adding a point of contact between the camera and your eye.

A built-in aluminum sun mask on the Z-Finder protects your LCD screen from sunlight. You also get one installed, and one additional Anti-Fog disk to help keep your view clear in humid or cold environments.

You should be aware that the Z-Finder is a magnifier, and as such will magnify the sun, which can damage the LCD screen if the sun is allowed to shine directly through the Z-Finder lens. Zacuto recommends that you use the enclosed lens cap to block light from entering your Z-Finder when not in use.
