Poor eyesight even with RX mask
« on: August 22, 2008, 00:59:51 UTC »
I have a prescription mask which works great for diving however I can't see the subject looking through the viewfinder of my camera. If the subject is small and/or stationary, I just point where I think it is. Any suggestions?

This sounds like a lot of issues - I have an RX mask, but I have my "closeup" lens put in low in the lens so that I can use the distance correction for looking through my viewfinder.  So far I do seem to have a problem - except when the fish move - I just wish they would stand still for me when I'm close with my camera - unless of course they want to do cute things  - - don't want too much!
