The basic finder is fixed.
I don't know if one was ever made.

The camera's finder is fixed straight out the back. Arri made a periscope finder attachment that the say is for left eye viewing with 400' mags. It appears to be rotatable also but I can't be sure as I've never handled one.

Oooops, I should have dug deeper. This shows a cross section of the finder's optical path with the periscopic finder attached....
Warning, when rotating the periscopic finder, the image does not stay "erect", it will rotate and you'll have to cock your head to see a level horizontal image. You'll get used to it :-).
