  1. Yesterday
  2. I see. I am used to the Nauticam housing where you remove the original completely and put on the one. Not much room for error. I used Ikelite housings for many years but didn't get a 45degree until I moved to Nauticam.
  3. Hi Dave, The best example would be Chris Kippax's photo shown above. The adapter bolts to the pickup finder on the Ikelite housing. This puts greater distance between the rear element on the finder and the EVF. In addition you are now looking through two viewfinders. The result is that the image size is reduced in the viewfinder. It works the same way a closeup lens works the more distance you put between the rear C/U lens element and the lens the weaker the magnification. 2 or 3 mm may not seem like much but it can make a big difference. The viewfinders that, in the case of Ikelite thread into the housing are designed to get the VF as close to the EVF as possible without hitting the EVF and causing damage.
  4. Phil, you mentioned proper placement for the viewfinders for best results. I am curious what you mean by that? How could it be placed incorrectly?
  5. Again on the up side in the time it has taken to produce the content on the second half of this second page Sony has announced a brilliant new 12-24mm F/2.8 GM lens and Canon has announced two new mirrorless cameras. The two new Canon cameras now have IBIS and dual card slots missing on the first EOS R. In addition Canon has announced four new Mirrorless lenses and two tele converters. It seems that in spite a reduction in sales the camera market is moving forward and trying to reinvent itself with 21st century equipment.
  6. Regarding your original question I have used both the Inon and Ikelite viewfinders on Ikelite housings. If both are correctly placed in relation to the viewfinder them you will have identical performance. I have attached images of both the 180 and 45 viewfinders from both companies. Look closely and tell me what you see. I have also used the more expensive Nauticam 45 & 180 viewfinders and they are as you would expect better if the placement is proper.
  7. Photo is up...hoping to sell together for $500...would have to check on cost of shipping to indonesia.

  12. I have bought the vacuum test from Nauticam and 3D printed some special brackets to make it fit in my Ikelite housing. As long a the LED is green there are no issues with the sealing of the house. I prepare my setup the night before the dive. Vacuum down the housing. I never have lost vacuum since i have this system. I agree a vacuum system give you great comfort. Perhaps i just have to go for the Nauticam 45 degree VF.
  13. You need to look at the housing add on items as a once in a lifetime purchase. I agree with the purchase of a vacuum system. With the items like a vacuum system, viewfinder, strobes, arms and clamps, you purchase them once and when you upgrade your camera, you upgrade your housing and transfer all the items to the new housing. Yes you may need to get a different adapter for the vacuum system and viewfinder but that cost would be minimal in relation to the cost of new items. It may be out of your price range right now but it may be less expensive than buying a inon and then selling it and buying a nauticam viewfinder.
  14. I could not agree more with Chris and Adri. A very wise investment! That and a 45-degree VF are the best purchases I have made. Check out the Vivid Sentinel.... https://www.vividhousings.com/leak-sentinel.php
  15. Chris, that is so true! After the flood of my old house and Nikon D90 I went for a Nikon D7200. The new Ikelite housing have a vacuum valve, so i have that already. No stress anymore when entering the water and checking if the housing is still sealed.
  16. Do yourself a favour and buy a vacuum valve kit. It will be the best investment you can make
  17. Low resolution so all the heavy modification to the image are almost invisible It makes sense!
  18. Thank you, Chris. My first camera is been flushed cause of one screw on the bottom of a Ikelte housing was unscrewed during a flight home. I hope I would never experience that again, that why i hasitate about the Nauticam VF. The problem is that none of the stores here in The Netherlands has those VF in store. Therefore it is not possible to make a live compare and test them on my housing I already had contact with Onderwaterhuis.nl which is the same company as Uwcamerastore. They are not shure that this version will fit on my housing.
  19. Hi. It depends on the usage. I say the TURTLE knows approx 1500 pictures with one charge, but some users said it works one week with one chagre. If you slide on the hotshoe the TURTLE and also switch on the cam and the TURTLE . There is a BAT text of the back of TURTLE and a LED which is blinking if the batter is 10-15%. Regards Balazs
  20. The Nauticam is an excellent design and it would take a phenomenal effort to pull it from the housing. I dive in a river quite often and it is extremely mucky, when removing the viewfinder to check the o-rings they are always spotless. From memory the Ikelite is a Inon. The below from https://www.uwcamerastore.com may suit your needs.
  21. The price now is USD $300 plus shipping and insurance to your country. Please message me privately if you’re interested.
