The Zacuto EVF Flip-Up Electronic View Finder is a 3.2" high resolution monitor that is used in conjunction with all the Z-Finder models. The EV Flip-Up features the ability of flipping your Z-finder up and away from the monitor so you can view the screen without the aid of the Z-finder. The EVF is compatible with all cameras with an HDMI output including the Canon HDSLR line 5D MK II, 7D, 60D etc, Panasonic AF-100 and Sony F3. The Zacuto EVF allows you to operate an HDSLR camera or any camera with an HDMI port, with the correct form factor for video with the camera "in-line" to your rod system (the most stable way) and your eye in the Z-Finder offset. Zacuto designed the EVF to enhance the stability of your camera package, give you better resolution, allow you to get your eye where it most comfortably needs to be, enable low mode shooting, shorten your camera package, have your EVF in the back of a dolly or crane, detached from the rig for car shots and more.
The Zacuto EVF is powered by an LP-E6 style battery, this battery will power your EVF for 5.2 hours. The EVF will include one battery and one charger, this battery can be charged on the included charger or a Canon LC-E6 battery charger. The charger that is included can also be used to charge a Canon LP-E6 battery. The Zacuto EVF has an HDMI typ 'A' in, and an HDMI type 'A' loop out. This feature means that you can view your image on the EVF's 800 x 480 screen, and you can also loop the signal out to an external monitor or device such as the Teradek Cube. The EVF also features a scaling function that corrects for the aspect ratio so you can fill the screen with your image when using certain DSLR cameras.
