What we do

innovate. inspire. create

 

At Zacuto we create and invent U.S. designed and assembled, production-grade filmmaking equipment. Our optical viewfinders, EVF’s, camera accessories and rigs are designed by Steve Weiss, Jens Bogehegn and our engineering staff.

Steve and Jens bring their 80 years of combined experience as award winning filmmakers to create products based on four central principles: balance, ergonomics, comfort for all day shooting, and products that are universal ‘to work with all cameras.’  

Zacuto is known for their signature products, the Z-Finder, Gratical EVF and VCT Pro baseplate. Zacuto is celebrating 20 years in business. During this time, we’ve established ourselves as educators to the film community, and a company that puts quality first when it comes to our unique designs. All our products have a lifetime warranty, and our iconic red and black design is seen on film sets worldwide, in part thanks to our large loyal fan base. 

Zacuto head product designers and five time Emmy winners, Steve Weiss, Producer/Director and Jens Bogehegn, Cinematographer, are known around the world for their Zacuto original programs including, "The Great Camera Shootout", "FilmFellas", "Light & Shadow", and "Critics".

We know, your equipment is key to making the dream of the directors vision come to life. Zacuto’s designs free filmmakers to focus on innovation, inspiration, and creativity.
