I just got the Zacuto Z-Finder EVF (electronic view finder) firmware version 0.09.04 and thought it would be nice to make a quick video showing you how easy it is to update the firmware on the Zacuto EVF.

We have used the Zacuto DSLR electronic viewfinder for a few weeks now and can say it is awesome. It has great features and if anyone has any questions about it just let me know.
