Thanks for your advice! It would be nice if one could switch between the 45 and straight finders without too much trouble.


This is actually one reason why I stick with Nauticam. The viewfinders are some of the best available and really easy to change out.

Using the 45 finder is great for shooting macro on the sea floor ie eals hiding under ledges, nudis, or anything on a sandy bottom like you would find in Lembeh. But it makes it almost impossible to shoot small things in the water column, esp at night, like squid for instance. It is also very difficult trying to shoot down on a subject, like for things hiding in coral. Soon you realize what you can and can't shoot with a 45 and it becomes another factor in predive planning for specific shooting. For wide angle I think it is best used for getting low and shooting close focus wide angles into a sun ball... It is great for this! For all other wide angle applications, I think a straight finder is easier. So basically, its best to know what kind of shooting you do most and prefer....before you make the investment.

For new shooters on a budget I would recommend using just the housing finder. As long as your eyesight is good it should be fine. Then when you find out what kind of shooting you prefer you can get a vf .. or 2...

When you don't want to crop, or by very little, I think the IS is great for framing in macro...especially in super macro.
