Hi. Are there any alternatives to these D7000 price range like viewfinders? Like a DIY or a cheaper option? My eyes aren't that bad yet underwater but struggle at times specially when its a little dark. Thanks

I know only of the Nauticam viewfinders with an adapter for Ikelite, but those will set you back more, they are more expensive then an inon.

I used Bill's way to attach a (second hand) Inon viewfinder (www.uwcamerastuff.com/inon.htm). It worked out a little bit more expensive than anticipated because of import taxes. I think your best bet would be to wait around and look look for a second hand Inon. There is some discussion on Inon vs dyron in http://wetpixel.com/...showtopic=32679

When I used Ikelite I had the straight Nauticam viewfinder with the Nauticam adapter in the housing. It was very easy to mount it, and even if it is an expensive solution, the viewfinder can easily be adapted to other housings in the future.
