  1. Thanx guys for your vision and knowledge. I have ordered the Nauticam 45 Degree Viewfinder and adapter ring for Ikelite
  2. Hi Chris, After seen your housing i am confident that it will fit on my housing too. Those two turn selectors (knobs) left and right of the original viewfinder in the picture of your housing are way bigger then my delete button. The delete button is just the same as your silver push buttons. If the nauticam viewfinder can rotate around onyour housing it will definitely will on mine. Thanks Chris, for lighten it up. I am gonna order the Nauticam VF on monday.
  3. Chris, can you measure the distance between the housing and the viewfinder. My dealer can't say for sure if it is gonna fit on my housing. The delete button is really close to my viewfinder. The height of the button is approx. 6mm. Perhaps you can show it in a picture too? Thanks
  4. Waiting for the final answer from my dealer if the Nauticam is gonna fit on my housing. That damn delete button is really close to my original viewfinder. Nervous, while waiting.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I also don't like the way a Nauticam is mounted on a Ikelite housing. It is just an open collar where the viewfinder slides in. When the o-ring gets comprimised or for some reason the viewfinder get pulled of underwater my housing get flushed. With the Inon and Ikelite viewfinder this can not happend.
  9. Thank you, Chris. A used Nauticam 45 degree is hard to find in The Netherlands.
  10. HI Bill, I did not know there that the Nauticam could be fitted on a Ikelite housing as well. But the price of the Nauticam are a bit steep for me
  11. Hello everybody, are there users amongst u that uses a Inon 45 degree viewfinder on a Ikelite DSLR housing. I'm thinking to purchase a 45 degree viewfinder but still hasitate of which brand to buy. The original Ikelite VW version is about € 200 higher then the Inon version. Please, share your experiences with me if you can. Thank you, Adri
