Item Description
.

For the last three years I've focused 100% of my K-1 photos by using a Zacuto viewfinder attached to the back of my Pentax K-1 camera. In my opinion, it's the best way to consistently nail critical focus on those narrow DOF shots (especially for older shooters like me).
I've already sold 4 or 5 of these here; and this is probably the last one that I will be selling.



There are various sizes and types of Zacuto viewfinders, and I've owned all of them. I've finally settled on this size/model that's the perfect match for the Pentax K-1 camera. This one covers the entire K-1 LCD screen, with no part of the screen blocked out (like some do).

Also, unlike many stock Zacuto baseplates, with this particular Zacuto baseplate is the only one that can be installed on a K-1 (or K-1ii) and not block the battery door.

This viewfinder kit can be custom fitted to a Pentax K-1 camera. All you will have to do is attach it to your K-1, adjust the focusing wheel to fit your particular visual acuity, and you're ready to consistently nail focus with your manual focus lenses.

This used Zacuto viewfinder has pristine glass and a smooth operating focusing adjustment wheel. Overall it's in near mint condition, with some of the components being brand new.

Please note that this viewfinder will NOT fit onto a K-1 camera if the camera has a vertical grip on it.

You will receive an excellent, used Zacuto viewfinder, and all of the extras that are show in the first photo (of course the K-1 camera shown in the photos is not included).

This viewfinder comes with 4 extender frames. If you find that the focusing wheel on this finder is not sufficient to compensate for your poor vision, you can insert one or more of these extender frames until you achieve perfect focus.

This kit comes with 2 different sized mounting frames - one larger one (3.2 inch) is for the K-1 & K-3; and one smaller one (3-inch) for KP & K-70 & K-5 cameras.

I am available to help you (via email) if you have questions about setting it up.

I will consider shipping outside of the USA for an extra charge...

I still dream of pairing this up with an old 50/1.2 on the K-1. Of course I don't have this nor an old 50/1.2, but what fun that would be! Cheers.
