SCUBAPIX INSIGHT: "We believe that once you use an Aqua Viewfinder, you'll wonder how you survived without it! The only way to see the full frame without moving your head."
The long-awaited 45° Aquaview viewfinder from Aquatica is finally here. And it can be described in just two words - small and bright! It's small, sculptured form fits very neatly on the back of your housing. And when you look through it, the bright, crisp image appears brighter than real life. It's 45° angle puts you in a comfortable position, especially for macro.
It also pivots through 360° against the housing to allow different viewing angles, clicking into position every 90°. And, of course, it has the same tough finish that Aquatica housings are known for.
With its quality coated glass elements this finder delivers a 100% viewing area, allowing photographers to see a crisp, bright and sharp image from corner to corner while Its hard-anodized aluminum body allows the finder to be used to depths of up to 100m (300 ft).
All Aquatica housings since 2008 are designed to accept the new Aqua View Finder, which can be easily installed and removed by the user in a mere 30 seconds. Removal of the finder from the housing is advised for travel and for long-term storage.
An Initial diopter adjustment is quick and straightforward and guarantees a sharp image for each individual’s eyesight. No tools are required. The user may also opt to simply adjust the diopter +/- setting on the DSLR’s built finder instead.
What was initially suggested as an optional add-on to a professional housing system, is now being hailed by all its users as a must have tool.
"The Aqua View Finder is an indispensable tool in my quest to obtain the professional images I am expected to deliver."
