In Topic: Thinking about acquiring a viewfinder

thanks for the info blibecap,I would love to get the nauticam but don"t know if i can justify the cost $1500-$1600 with ikelite adaptor in australia,the inon is halve the price in comparison will have to think it over ,have been looking at the classifieds for the nauticam but they get snapped up fast(when a reasonably price that is)  you are right about the eyes getting older thru:-(

Can give you an idea of what the camera is like above water, the auto focus is very fast and tracks the subject brilliantly in servo mode as well, the low light performance is great ,the ISO performance leaves the 7D for dead, useable pics up to 3200 and even 6400 in a pinch which is a major plus but will see how good it is when I get it underwater

i have just gone from the 7D to to 7Dmk2 and waiting for an ikelite housing to arrive the control button layout is nearly the same as the 7D the camera is slightly larger and the buttons allocated different functions,looking forward to getting it in the water (inside the housing that is  )

I got the Nauticam viewfinder so I can't comment about the Inon one, the Nauticam one block the LCD a bit if viewed "from above" but a slight tilt of the housing let me view it (it's not that big). 

 

Personally I found the 45 degree angle quite natural to use, although I just recently transitioned from compact to DSLR so maybe I hadn't got time to get used to having it point straight in front of me :)

 

Thanks for the info  Atom and Cerianthus, most appreciated, have been agonising which to get  45 degree or the straight inon viewfinder ,I dive every second weekend so should be able to get use to the 45 degree but the straight would be better for wide angle at the moment i do about 40%Wide-60% Macro am doing some macro diving in manado indonesia in May am also going from a 7D to the 7D mk2 which will keep me busy getting up to speed with till the trip
