Ikelite has released a new version of its Straight Enhanced Magnifying Viewfinder for DSLR and mirrorless housings. According to the company, the redesigned viewfinder promises even better performance with full-frame DSLRs and mirrorless cameras.
Depth-rated to 200 feet, the viewfinder has a corrosion resistant aluminum and fiber reinforced plastic body and features a large, high-performance prism and optimized glass material, giving a bright, sharp view of the image right into the corners without vignetting. This should make focusing easier and faster, particularly when doing night dives. It is designed to work with cameras either with optical viewfinders or EVFs. The magnification matches that of the camera.
Depending on whether you’re shooting portrait or landscape images, the viewfinder can be rotated for more ergonomic positioning—although the controls on some housings, according to Ikelite, will restrict rotation. The viewfinder is easily installed using an included tool, replacing the standard viewfinder on the housing.
The Straight Enhanced Magnifying Viewfinder is available now and is priced at $1,050.
