That's out of my budget unfortunately.

Are there cheaper options?

I'm happy with the Hoodman Loupe on a 60D.

If I tried the Zacuto I'm sure I'd be spoiled, but the Hoodman has good magnification and an adjustable diopter. You do need to figure out how to attach - I'm using Hoodman's Hoodcrane, I wish it were easier to pop up out of the way one-handed, but it does work.

GGS Swivi Foldable 3X Viewfinder II for 3" LCD Screen HD DSLR Video Camera | eBay

I bought this for my 5Dmk3. It's as good as zacuto
plus it has a eyepiece door. You can close it to prevent burning the screen under sunlight

I too didnt have the budget for the over priced zacuto, I bought the Carryspeed VF4 and was quite impressed with the performance, great price and does the job fine :)

Re: Viewfinder for Canon 6D?

Here is an Amazon link for the one I have been using on my 6D. I wanted to be able to interchange it on my 60D with the swivel screen, so it needed to be light weight. My Z finder was too heavy. This one flips up to see the screen directly and also has a diopter corrector. It is only about $50

If you are interested I have a Zucato Pro 2.5X that is pretty much like new in the box. I sold my 5D3 so I don't have any use for it now.

Re: Viewfinder for Canon 6D?

I've used the Swivi on my 60D and 6D and they work like a charm. The only issue is that the mounting plate offsets the tripod mounting hole to the side a bit and make lining up other gear (Follow Focus, rails matte box, etc.) a real pain. For run and gun, no batteries and all is good.
