Product Description

The Aqua View finder allows seeing 100% of the camera’s optical view finder with a bright and crisp image from corner to corner. The view finder has been designed to be nonobstructive for the photographer, giving the rear LCD a clear view of menu and playback images.  It is possible to adjust The Aqua View Finder to one’s eyesight by using the diopter adjustments of the view finder and/or the camera itself. However for videography purposes, depending on the angle of view, the view finder might partially block viewing the Live View of the camera back LCD.

The optics of the view finder is built of high-quality BK-7 coated glass elements. The viewfinder external casing is machined from aeronautical quality aluminium, anodized and with powder coating for protection against salt water corrosion. The Aqua View is rated to depths of up to 100 meters.

Removal of the finder from the housing is recommended for travel purposes and long-term storage. This can be done in 30 seconds.
