I held the Aquatica 45degree finder in my hand yesterday...
Very small, very bright.
Been a long wait, but looks like a beauty!

Well, it's been a long time coming, but it's been worth the wait.

Compact, bright, sharp and clear...

I've only used it for some pool work so far.... Coral Sea trip next week will be the first ocean test, but have to say I am very happy so far.

Thanks Jean and team at the factory, thanks Peter Mooney for supply!

I just placed my order with the local dealer. Early Christmas present, maybe ?

Looking forward to my newest addition to my D7000 set-up.

Thanks! Aquatica!

Just wanted to resurrect this thread - seems the Aquatica 45 is on the Aquatica website, but I can't seem to find it on Backscatter, B&H etc. Is it readily available? What is the damage for this little beauty...Jean maybe you can help me out...

cheers!

I'm looking for it too.
Backscatter is out of stock and BHPhoto doesn't have it.
I'm going to be in NY in a few weeks but I think the viewfinder should have to wait. :)

You can try "here".

Don't know if they have it in stock, but they are listing it for sale on their website.

I ordered one from my local uw photo shop, Optical Ocean Sales, they also ship online.

I had been asking for the viewfinder since it was previewed at DEMA and it shipped to me in late Feb.

I have had mine since mid February. I ordered it in early January ( From Backscatter ) and just waited. I really like it, so much I may sell my straight AquaView.
