Viewfinders Come in Different Orientations

• Some are eye level, like your camera's own reflex finder. You hold your housing up to your eye in the normal way.

• Others may be set at 45 degrees. Like the right angle finders used by land photographers for shooting with their cameras on the ground, these can let you place your camera low to the seafloor.

• Angled finders allow you to look down and compose from above. This also helps with split-level photography as the eyepiece can remain above the surface.

Some makes of angled finders can rotate around 360 degrees to allow composition in a portrait orientation. Seacam and Subal, and Inon, are among these manufacturers offering all three types of viewfinder. Inon supply their 45 degree swivel finder to several housing manufacturers, including Sea Tool and Nexus.

There is a discussion on viewfinders in the 'Wide Angle' chapter called 'Split Levels', see page 408.
