ZACUTO(ザクト) Panasonic CX350 Zファインダー/Z-FIND-CX350
Pre-order, shipping Sept 1.
The Panasonic CX350 Z-Finder is an optical viewfinder, specifically designed to attach to the Panasonic CX350 Z cinema camera LCD. This Z-Finder will magnify the LCD screen by 1.8x and has a diopter for specific focus tuning. It cuts out any extraneous light and offers an initial point of stability by pressing your eye against the large eyecup. The CX350 Z-finder comes with a 40mm diameter Zacuto optical lens, anti-fog coated protective covers and all necessary additional accessories for the Panasonic CX350 . The diopter allows you to dial in the focus to match your eye. If you need extra focal points you can use the included Z-Finder Extender Frames. These are semi-permanent stackable frames that attach to the body of the Z-Finder and extend the Z-Finder glass further away from the LCD screen for people who are farsighted.
The Panasonic CX350 Z-Finder is comprised of three important parts. The first is the viewfinder itself with the lens, diopter, and eyecup. The second is the viewfinder mounting system. The mount slides onto the Panasonic CX350 LCD screen when articulated. The viewfinder snaps on and off the frame and can hang around your neck on the included lanyard when not in use. The third is a mount to help secure the Z-Finder to your camera to support it in a usable position. The mount screws into the side of the Z-Finder and it rests on the camera handle.
The Panasonic CX350 Z-Finder Includes:
Z-Finder Pro eyepiece/loupe with 1.8x magnification and diopter
Panasonic CX350 Z-Finder Mount
Lens Cap, Sun Mask, and protective boot
Z-Finder Dust Cover
2 additional Anti-Fog disc. This also acts as a lens protector and is expendable. More can be purchased here.
WARNING The Z-finder is a magnifier and as such will magnify the sun and could damage the LCD screen if the sun is allowed to shine directly through the Z-finder lens. This is not a defect but a physical property. Caution should be taken to avoid direct sunlight. Proper use of the included lens cap and sun mask will dramatically reduce but not eliminate risk.
