Nauticam introduce new Enhanced Viewfinders

Published

on

For over a decade, Nauticam Enhanced Viewfinders have been known for superior optics, tack sharp performance and first-of-its-kind underwater dioptric adjustment. Anyone who has used these instruments has grown to appreciate what an asset they can be to any underwater photographer. But the camera world has seen radical changes in technology in the last ten years, including ever increasing size and resolution of Electronic Viewfinders (EVFs) found in the latest high-end mirrorless cameras. These newer EVFs challenge even the finest enhanced viewfinders for underwater housings.

In response to this technological evolution, Nauticam are excited to introduce the next generation of Enhanced Viewfinders designed to meet and exceed the requirements of all the current digital camera EVFs, as well as what is expected in the near future. The new Full Frame Enhanced Viewfinders employ entirely new optics to allow distortion free viewing without clipping the image frame. With the new viewfinders, reviewing images in playback or navigating the menus through the EVF has never been so easy.

Because different photographers have different needs and priorities, Nauticam offer both the Straight and Angle Enhanced Viewfinders in two options. The 1:1 viewfinder option offers the most magnification available for underwater viewing while preserving the image field and surrounding data on most cameras. This viewfinder is a breakthrough in performance on high resolution EVFs and is an absolute joy on traditional DSLRs. The level of detail rendered is unequaled in the industry.

For those utilizing cameras with known EVF challenges such as the Sony’s A1 and A7SIII cameras, or just for the photographer who wants as much working room on the viewfinder field-of-view as possible, Nauticam offer the new 0.8:1 version. The 0.8:1 viewfinder offers an equally crisp and bright EVF display as the 1:1 viewfinder, with slightly less magnification for uncompromising corner to corner image viewing or better imaging of shooting data.

As with their original Enhanced Viewfinders, the next generation is also available in both a Straight and Angled version for each magnification.  Which viewfinder is right for you depends a great deal on personal preference and shooting style.  The angled viewfinder can be rotated in-water to accommodate using the camera in landscape or portrait orientation as well as any position in between.

The much-loved dioptric adjustment is still featured and allows for easy eyesight adjustment in-water without disassembly of the viewfinder.

The Nauticam Enhanced Full Frame Viewfinders can be installed in seconds without any tools.  The viewfinder is a direct replacement of the stock 0.66X viewfinder on DSLR and many full-frame mirrorless housings but requires an easily installed adapter (PN 32215) for some MIL housings.  The angled viewfinders can be rotated in-water to accommodate using the camera in portrait orientation.

Whether future proofing a viewfinder purchase for your current rig, or patiently waiting for a viewfinder worthy of the latest pro mirrorless camera you are diving, these cutting-edge viewfinders are the new industry standard to be looking at.
