The Sea & Sea MDX-7D/VF45 Viewfinder Package for Canon EOS 7D DSLR consists of a VF45 1.2X SLR 45° Prism Viewfinder and an MDX-7D underwater camera housing for the Canon EOS 7D DSLR camera. The viewfinder is a focusing tool for your digital camera. The eyepiece rotates 360° in increments of 90° to give you the ideal camera position in both landscape and portrait. The 45° prism viewfinder is great for all conditions, but especially designed for macro photography, when the camera is often positioned lower than the photographer. The eyepiece is designed to keep out unnecessary light, allowing you to see only clear and precise images. This unit covers the entire field of view and features 1.2X magnification. It can be used safely at a maximum depth of 328' (100 m).

The MDX-7D underwater housing for the Canon EOS 7D DSLR camera is a durable aluminum unit that enables you to safely shoot underwater with your camera to a depth of 200' (60 m). The housing is protected by a highly corrosion-resistant, anodized coating. You have access to almost all of the camera's essential functions. The port for the housing is sold separately. A built-in leak sensor immediately alerts you to any water leakage. The housing also features an easy-to-use shutter lever, excellent for taking quick snapshots and avoiding motion blur. The unit is equipped with the Optical Viewfinder 0.5X, offering 0.5X magnification, which is replaced by the VF45 Prism viewfinder that comes in this package and offers enhanced magnification power.
