Canon C300/500 Z-Finder and Accessories

C300 Z-Finder and AccessoriesThe Canon Cinema series cameras have been taking the world by storm! Steve and Jens saw the potential of these lower budget, high performance cameras early on and quickly began making baseplates and rigs for their unique size and shape.

Creating a Z-Finder for the removable, larger LCD of the Canon C300 and C500 was a new challenge for Zacuto. Always ready for a challenge, Steve and Jens set to work to create a lightweight, accessible, reasonably priced unit that could stand up to Zacuto’s high standards.

Scaling Mountains with the Zacuto Enforcer by Jonn Jeanneret

 Rock Climbing with the Zacuto Enforcer

I shoot in unforgiving environments. Some shots require that I lean out into the open air, hundreds of feet above the ground with a rope as my only connection to the world.

Other shots force me to climb early in the morning with tightly gripped ice axes, trying to get the perfect frame as the dawn hovers over frozen mountains. My equipment must be tough, reliable, small, light, fast to setup, and easy to use. Enter the Zacuto Enforcer.
