The Zacuto Z-Finder Pro, DSLR optical viewfinder, for Panasonic GH3 cameras is now available. The Z-Finder Pro allows the Panasonic GH3 DSLR camera to have the correct form factor for shooting video and magnifies the LCD screen by 2.5x to help with focusing.
“There are two options when outfitting your Panasonic GH3 with a Z-Finder. If you already own a Z-Finder Pro or Jr, you can retrofit your existing Z-Finder by buying the GH3 Z-Finder Frame Kit which includes the new Gorilla Plate V2 and a Z-Finder Frame made specifically for the Panasonic GH3. We try to make products that are backwards compatible for our customers,” says Zacuto VP of Sales and Marketing, Mandy Rogers. “If you are starting from scratch you can buy the GH3 Z-finder Pro. It comes with everything you need to get started out of the box.”
The GH3 Z-Finder Pro attaches to the Panasonic GH3 with the new Zacuto Gorilla Plate V2 and Z-Finder Mounting Frame. The Gorilla Plate V2 is a small baseplate that works with DSLRs and other small cameras. It attaches to the bottom of the GH3 with the standard tripod plate mounting holes. The Z-Finder GH3 Mounting Frame screws directly into the Gorilla Plate V2. The Z-Finder can snap on and off the frame easily to switch between video and photos. A tripod plate can also be mounted underneath the Gorilla Plate V2 to jump from handheld to tripod quickly.

- Z-Finder Pro eyepiece/loupe with 2.5x magnification and diopter
- Three Extender Frames
- Gorilla Plate V2 and Mounting Frame for the Panasonic GH3
