Zacuto EVF Review. Quick Take and BTS On Set.
Here is a Quick Take video on the new Zacuto Electronic View Finder is one of the best I have used and currently kills the competition. The image rivals that of the Canon LCD. The 90 degree HDMI cable is the best on the market. We used it on set and it lasted all day on one Canon LP-E6 battery. We also beat the crap out of the HDMI inputs and could not get the image to flicker. This is one solid piece of equipment. The Zacuto EVF Snap retails for around $800 US and will be available in the Summer of 2011.
Here is a slightly soft video shot by Misa Garcia from JAG35. The Zacuto EVF is the best one I have used so far. The screen is killer. Better than the Canon LCD. The HDMI inputs are super solid. I beat the crap out of them for this video. Most importantly. The battery lasted all day long. We switched the Canon LP-E6 after 8 hours of use. We never turned it off. It goes from one red bar to solid red battery icon when it goes down. I tend to push my batteries till they bitch and moan. This thing just kept on going. I went with the “Snap” version as I already have a 3X Zacuto Z-Finder Pro.
