ZACUTO SONY BURANO Z-FINDER T he Sony BURANO Z-Finder, made by Zacuto, is an accessory designed to work with the Sony BURANO camera. The Z-Finder replaces the Sony viewfinder and acts as a monitor or EVF, simply sliding and locking into place without interfering with the mounting arm. The Z-Finder magnifies the LCD screen by 2.5x and offers a comfortable fit thanks to its large eyecup. It includes a dioptre, allowing users to adjust the focus according to their eye with a range from -4.0 to 0.0. Drop-in dioptres are also available for those who need an extra adjustment – fitting beneath the built-in
aluminium sun mask, which protects the screen from extraneous light. The Z-Finder comes complete with the BURANO loupe and dioptre wheel, two extender frames, a mounting frame, lens cap, sun mask, dust cover, two anti-fog discs and a protective boot. The package is priced at £499 and is currently available for pre-order.
