The EVF Tri-Mount Kit gives the option to mount the EVF in 3 different ways. It gives you the option to use the EVF Standard Mount when shooting handheld (off the side of the Zacuto DSLR Baseplate), the Extender Viewfinder Mount when shooting on a tripod or dolly, or in quick release hotshoe mount configuration (see detailed images).
The Tri-Mount includes the EVF Standard Mount as well as a 7 M/F rod and a ZUD ¼ 20. The 7 M/F rod allows you to use the EVF in an extender viewfinder position. To use the extender viewfinder mount, remove the EVF Mount from the Z-Mount Zwivel, then screw the 7 M/F rod into the EVF Mount and then slide the Z-mount Zwivel wherever you like so that you can position your EVF to your desired position.
The included ZUD ¼ 20 allows you to free the camera and EVF from your rig and mount it quickly to the hot shoe mount of your camera. In order to use the quick release hot shoe mount effectively, the hot shoe mount included with the EVF should be mounted on your camera’s hot shoe adapter. Then screw the ZUD ¼ 20 into the hot shoe mount and leave that on your camera’s hot shoe adapter. You can then quickly release or attach the EVF from either the Standard Mount or Extender Viewfinder mount with a flip of the lever. This is essential for releasing your camera as well as your EVF from your rig in a matter of seconds.
The Gorilla Plate Adapter centers the tripod holes on the bottom of the gorilla plate. The Gorilla Plate Adapter is used in conjunction with the Zacuto Gorilla Plate. The Gorilla Plate adapter is needed to center the lens and camera between the rods if you are using a Z-Finder Pro with another manufacturer’s rod support system supporting follow focuses and matte boxes.
Note: A height adjustable matte box is needed if using a matte box with the Gorilla plate on another manufactures plate system unless their plate system is height adjustable like the Zacuto DSLR Baseplate.
The Gorilla Plate Adapter comes with a longer 1/4 20″ screw that will replace the smaller 1/4 20″ screw that comes with the Gorilla Plate. You will need to take your screw out and use the longer one provided with the adapter to attach your camera to the plate.
Re-route and protect your HDMI cable and equipment from unnecessary strain with this standard (big) HDMI right angle male to female adapter. The fixed right angle position not only gives you more space between the EVF and camera but it gives you a sturdier connection and prevents your cable from becoming loose, ensuring you have the best data signal transmission possible. This right angle HDMI adapter also converts any cable you are using to offer a 9.5mm – 10mm insertion, the ideal insertion for use with the Zacuto EVF HDMI ports.
Omni-directional hotshoe ball mount is perfect for mounting a Zacuto EVF to a camera hotshoe. Quick locking mechanism keeps ball mount firmly in place. One flip of the lever releases the ball to get the perfect angle for your shot. Comes with a standard ¼ 20 male screw on top. Can be mounted on any accessory with corresponding ¼ 20 female screw hole.
A Powerful, 1080p, Micro-OLED EVF for All Your SDI and HDMI Cameras
Z-Bands are an option for the Zacuto Z-Finder. The Z-Bands are elastic rubber bands to help hold the Z-finder in place. They are not a way to hold the z-finder on the camera. The Z-Bands are just a security measure to hold the z-finder in place in case of accidental bumping just like the lanyard. The mounting frame and the Z-Bands must be used together. The Z-bands include 4 red aluminum balls and two elastic bands.
PLEASE NOTE: The Z-Bands will not work with the Canon 7D due to the different shape and curvature of the camera. They may work if you have a quick release adapter underneath the camera, which will allow the bands to wrap around. Please call us if you have any questions about this.

This frame is for use small bodies DSLR’s with 3.2 screens such as the Canon 5D MIII and Nikon D800. This Frame will not work if you are using a battery grip with your camera. For that you will need a battery grip frame for 3.2″ screens which we are still working on. We are also working on the 3.2″ frame for Tall Bodied Cameras and a 3.2″ Adhesive Frame.
The Z-Finder Aircraft Aluminum Frame must be used in conjunction with the Gorilla plate. The Z-Finder frame attaches to the Gorilla plate with two thumb screws; the Gorilla plate is attached to the bottom of your camera. The frame has a rubber coating on the end which stays against the LCD screen with pressure. The connection between the Z-Finder and frame is a snap fit. The Z-Finder snaps into the frame and can quickly snap off for going between video and photos. To release the frame from your camera, you must un-do the thumb screws and slide the frame off.
