Hi guys,

I went to a recent shootout and saw what it's like to have a external viewfinder. So now I'm shopping for a 45 degree one that would fit on my Ikelite 60D housing. I would prefer a VF that can be used on a variety of housings as I intend to get a Nauticam housing in future.

Any recommendations, and which adapters I need to get to have them fit on the Ikelite housing? I would prefer not to have any permanent modifications made to both housing and VF.

Thanks in advance!

I make Viewfinder adapters for ikelite housings.

Here is a link to the Inon adapter. http://uwcamerastuff.com/inon.htm

If you decide on a different viewfinder, I can also make a adapter for that.

The Inon 45 deg viewfinder fits just fine on nauticam housings using an adaptor. No permanent modifications needed.
