The Action Finder DA-1 is unique among Nikon interchangeable finders offering eyelevel-type viewing, as the DA-1 is specially designed to provide large-field viewing/composing/focusing, with the photographer’s eye positioned at an extended distance from the finder. The special, extra-large pentaprism and ancillary optical system offer a fixed -7 dioptry that permits and eye-relieve distance of as much as 60mm, and with the total field visible; and, when the photographer views at closer distances, eyepoint positioning can be off-axis but as much as 16mm vertically and 24mm horizontally (at a 20 mm eye-relief distance), while still retaining full coverage of the entire image field. Thus, with these special capabilities, the DA-1 proves an invaluable tool for the serious photographer. For example, those shooting sports in fashion shots, or other types of photography in which action or speed are essential, will truly appreciate the ease of operation afforded by using the DA-1; and for those situations where viewing at a distance is essential, such as when wearing protective eyewear, or when the or when the camera is enclosed in an underwater housing. The DA-1 Action Finder provides for operation that other finders cannot match. This finder is available in either satin-chrome or black enamel finish.
