Ikelite 45 Degree Magnified Viewfinder for DSLR and Mirrorless Housings (Type 3)

SKU # ike.6891.3


Housing, camera, are not included; shown for illustrative purposes only.

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!

Enjoy enhanced viewing of your camera's viewfinder while creating space for your regulator, making composition more comfortable. Easy installation on almost any Ikelite housing for a DSLR or mirrorless camera. 


Three versions of this viewfinder are available to provide adequate control clearance. Choose Type 2, or Type 3 based on your camera model.  Refer to the compatibility chart or contact us before ordering. 

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. 

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.
