Over two years in the making, Zacuto brought five different engineering companies together to create the Gratical EVF, a new electronic viewfinder concept. Electronic viewfinders are a pivotal tool in any filmmakers bag, providing accessibility, stability, focusability and so much more. Unlike a standard electronic viewfinder, with the Gratical HD EVF and Gratical X EVF, you can trust you’re seeing a realistic visualization of your final image. The processing power and sharpness of the Zacuto Gratical electronic viewfinder far surpasses all other EVF units on the market.
Zacuto offers two Gratical EVF options; the Gratical HD and the Gratical X. Both units start with a 5.4 million pixel micro-OLED display, high quality precision optics with a built in diopter, and a powerful FPGA dual core processor. The models differ only in software. The Gratical HD EVF comes packed with professional features like Vectorscope, Waveform (3D), Histogram, LUT import and creation and much more. The Gratical X EVF includes only basic features and our unique, customization program allows you to build the software package that’s right for you.
The Gratical EVF has 5.4 million pixels on a 0.61” diagonal screen no bigger than the size of your thumbnail. This EVF supports high pixel density with unparalleled resolution, true blacks, gamma and contrast range. With Micro-OLED screens, each pixel is lit individually so that when one is turned off there is true black. This makes for a wider contrast range and more vibrant colors for a vivid, enhanced picture. And with a full display electronic viewfinder resolution of 1280×1024 you know you’re getting the best picture possible.
The Gratical EVF includes HDMI and SDI inputs. HDMI and SDI outputs, and cross conversion comes standard with the Gratical HD and are optional features with the Gratical X. Weather resistant covers prevent moisture or debris from getting in open ports. Physical connections include both a ¼ 20 screw hole underneath the EVF and a rosette on the side. Attach your electronic viewfinder with an arm or Zacuto Axis Mini as part of a Zacuto Next Generation Recoil Rig.
You’ll be amazed with how sharp this EVF image is. The internal field of view is just the right size so that the image is large, but not so that your eye has to roam to see the entire image at once. It features a built in -1 to +4 diopter range and Zacuto’s latest anti-fog coating formula. An auto-closing eyecup door prevents sunburn display automatically without any action by the operator.
The Gratical HD and Gratical X EVF are compatible with every camera on the market today including the Canon C100 and C100 Mark II, C300, and C300 Mark II, C500, RED Epic, Scarlet, One, Dragon, Sony FS7, F5, F55, DSLRs, ARRI Amira, Alexa, AJA Cion, all Blackmagic cameras and many more.

Zacuto’s universal Next Generation Recoil Rigs are all about BALANCE! You cannot shoot with a rig that is not balanced, you’ll be fighting fatigue on long shoots. Whether you’re shooting TV, film, documentary, wedding or news, a balanced shoulder mounted rig will keep your shots steady and allow you to shoot the whole day.
Recoil rigs place the balance point directly over your shoulder, pushing focus and monitoring further forward, creating a lighter and shorter rig. The Gratical HD Micro-OLED EVF is the perfect addition to any Zacuto Recoil rig.
