November 14, 2013






If you’re working (or planning to work) with the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera #BMPC you may quickly realize the LCD screen can be very difficult to work with outdoors. Other cameras may not be as bad, but can still use a little help blocking out ambient light. One quick down and dirty way to block […]

Zacuto EVF Mounting Option – CheeseStick Bar
September 21, 2011






Zacuto’s introduced a new CheeseStick bar for the Z-EVF that will allow more flexible mounting options. (surprised it wasn’t named something like Z-heesestick?) Instead of using the lonely 1/4-20″ thread below the Z-EVF, you’ll now have a variety of mounting points along the top or the back (depending on how you install the cheesestick). Found […]

July 14, 2011






First look at what’s in the box with the Small HD DP4-EVF. First impression, this thing is much bigger than I anticipated. It’s a very nice external monitor, and sadly it might be enough to replace my DP6 (might be up for sale soon?). The menu with the click wheel on top, is the same […]

Zacuto EVF with AfterMarket View Finder(s)
July 11, 2011






Zacuto EVF Snap Viewfinder Zacuto’s got one of the sweetest EVFs (electronic viewfinders) available on the market. You could buy the 3″ HDMI EVF alone which will save you a few hundred dollars, but of course, what good is the EVF if you don’t have the Z-Finder Loupe to match? Having to invest in a […]
