Sea & Sea MDX-D7000 overview

  • 1Description

The Sea & Sea MDX-D7000/VF45 Viewfinder Package for Nikon D7000 DSLR consists of a VF45 1.2X SLR 45° Prism Viewfinder and an MDX-D7000 underwater camera housing for the Nikon D7000 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-D7000 underwater housing for the Nikon D7000 DSLR camera is a durable aluminum unit that enables you to safely shoot underwater with your camera to a depth of 328' (100 m). The housing is protected by a highly corrosion-resistant, anodized coating. You have access to nearly all of the camera's functions. The port and bracket shoe for the housing are sold separately. A built-in leak sensor immediately alerts you to any water leakage. 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.

Viewfinder and underwater housing both have depth rating of 328' (100 m)
Viewfinder offers enhanced magnification power of 1.2X, compared to 0.5X of original viewfinder installed in camera housing
Viewfinder is great for all conditions, though especially suited for macro photography, when camera is often positioned lower than photographer
Ergonomically designed viewfinder eyepiece blocks unnecessary light from entering, producing clear, precise images
Eyepiece rotates 360° in increments of 90° to provide ideal camera position in either landscape or portrait orientation
Housing's port lock mechanism secures port from accidental loosening
Shutter speed and aperture can be adjusted with hands on grips
You can comfortably reach the main command dial and subcommand dial with your fingers, while keeping your hands on the grips
Conventional Sync Cord N can be used by removing the connector cap and then fixing the Optional Sync Cord Connector N on the housing; to use a SEA&SEA strobe without Sync Cord Connector N, Fiber-Optic Cable (L-type) is required
To use SEA&SEA YS-Series strobes, you must do so in manual mode, as YS converter N is not compatible with the Nikon D7000 in an SLR housing; TTL function also not compatible with the Nikon D7000
Housing's 2 fiber optic cable sockets allow light of digital camera's built-in flash to be detected and connected to an external strobe, simply by connecting Fiber-Optic Cable (L-type) to one of the connectors; connect another cable to the other connector to operate 2 external strobes
Housing features tripod socket in the bottom center of the main body, with Ergo grip attached; remove this grip to add optional Grip-Stay L
Quick shoe makes camera easy to install / remove from housing; mount camera on quick shoe with tripod screw hole and positioning pin
Housing's built-in leak sensor immediately alerts you to any water leakage
Both viewfinder and housing constructed from corrosion-resistant, anodized aluminum for durability and protection from the elements
