unusable. Zacuto spent a lot of time coming up with our anti-fog
formula. Z-Finder version 1 owners complained about fog more than
any other issue. Your normal body temperature is almost 100 degrees
but the Z-Finder optic will never reach that point. The human body
also naturally puts out a lot of moisture. These two factors combined

and then you can begin to shoot again. This is a huge problem when
doing shots over 30 seconds. You must have anti-fog to really have a
XVDEOHSURGXFW:HUHFWLÀHGWKHSUREOHPZLWKWKHDQWLIRJSURWHFWLYH
covers. Our Z-Finder Pro models come with two expendable antifog protective covers. All Zacuto version 1 Z-Finders can easily and
inexpensively be upgraded to anti-fog with the addition of the Anti-Fog
Protective Upgrade Kit.
Q: Will I be able to use my Z-Finder EVF and Z-Finder EVF Pro
straight out of the box without buying anything else?
A: Yes, it will come with everything you need: a hotshoe ball mount,
rechargeable battery, battery charger, HDMI cable & case. You can
start shooting with it immediately. If you already own a Z-Finder Jr.
or Pro, you can purchase the EVF snap or EVF Flip and be ready to
shoot straight out of the box.
Q: Will this EVF have HD-SDI?
A: Not this version. We hope to make another version or converter with
HD-SDI later down the road. Adding HD-SDI does add cost and we
wanted to keep the cost as low as possible. Only a small majority of
users are interested in HD-SDI so it doesn’t make sense to have everyone have to pay for a feature that most will not use. Because every
camera, including the new Sony F3, AG-AF100 and DSLR cameras
use (HDMI, we went that way.) The future model or converter will allow
you to come in HDMI and cross convert to HD-SDI for output to an
HD-SDI monitor. It will also allow you to accept HD-SDI as an input.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why can’t I get a picture when I plug-in the HDMI cable while the
EVF is on?
A: This is not unique to the Zacuto EVF. If the EVF is already on, you
must plug in the HDMI cable in one swift movement with no stopping
or hesitation. It has to do with the communication or “handshake”
between the two devices.
Q: Why does my EVF have excessive strobing while panning?
A: We have tested the EVF for what people have complained as excessive strobing while panning and have discovered that our EVF does
not strobe any more than any other monitor. It appears that way
because you are magnifying the image with the Z-Finder.

up you are not magnifying so dead pixels or dots are unnoticeable.
