It offers 3x focusable magnification, a 40mm diameter lens, an eyecup preventing extraneous light leakage, and a field of view perfectly matched to LCD screens.

The Z-finder currently fits the Canon 5d, Canon 7d, Nikon D90, Panasonic GH1 (see note below), and many other cameras. The Z-finder is made to fit a 3” diagonal screen but other factors come into play such as button placement, slanting of the camera viewfinder etc. Please see below for interior dimensions of the Z-Finder.

The F-Stop Training DVD is a great tool that tells you everything you need to know about shooting hd video with the Canon 5D Mark II or the Canon 7D.
