Enjoy enhanced viewing of your camera's viewfinder.

Product details

This viewfinder is designed to position the viewing window farther away from the housing without changing the viewfinder image size. Enjoy a brighter, larger image with less vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image) as compared to our standard viewfinder.

The 45° Viewfinder provides a totally different shooting experience. Since we are typically in a horizontal position when diving, viewing your frame at an angle reduces arm fatigue and often makes framing easier when your subject is slightly below you and/or tucked into the reef. The 45° Viewfinder rotates to any angle, so it's simple to switch between shooting landscape, portrait, or just about anything in between!

Two versions of this viewfinder are available to provide adequate control clearance. Choose Type 1 or 2 based on your camera model. Refer to the compatibility chart, below.

The included tool makes it easy to remove your housing's original viewfinder, and both install and remove the 45° Magnified Viewfinder. We recommend removing the 45° Magnified Viewfinder from the housing for travel. Since no modification of the housing is necessary, the standard viewfinder may be re-installed and your Magnified Viewfinder will transition to your next Ikelite DSLR housing when you upgrade cameras.

This viewfinder is designed specifically for use with Ikelite housings.

Find out whether you need Type 1, Type 2 or Type 3

Three versions of this viewfinder are available to provide adequate control clearance. Choose Type 1, 2, or 3 based on your camera and housing model.

The Type 3 viewfinder may be used with any housing that calls for a Type 1 viewfinder. The Type 1 viewfinder cannot be used with housings that require a Type 3.

How long will it take for my order to arrive after I make payment?

That depends on where you live and whether we have an item in stock or not. While we do have many items in stock, we don't carry everything. If you need an item in a hurry, it's a good idea to contact us and find out if your item is in stock.

If it is, we can usually send it out as soon as we receive payment. If an item is not in stock, we'll need to order it from our suppliers, which means it can take 1-2 weeks to arrive at your door (usually closer to a week).

Sometimes delivery can take longer, if our manufacturers are out of stock, for example, but this is unusual - we let customers know as soon as possible if something like this happens.

How do you ship my orders?

We use New Zealand Post and CourierPost to ship orders. Our default is courier, though you may organise an alternative with us by contacting us directly. CourierPost aims for next day delivery nationwide between major towns and cities in the North Island. South Island delivery can take two days. If you require next-day delivery in South Island, choose the express shipping option for the South Island. If you spend over $250 get your shipping for free!
