Ikelite 8 Inch Dome Port Adapter Mirrorless

SKU # ike.5516.80

$149.95

Allows for the attachment of a Modular 8-inch Dome to any Ikelite Housing for a Compact DSLR or Mirrorless camera.  The 8-inch dome is specially designed for underwater photography and injection molded out of optical grade acrylic.  The diameter of the dome provides sharper photos corner-to-corner, while the large surface area of the dome makes shooting over-unders (half-in, half-out of the water) easier.  

The Adaptor Installed on an Ikelite Housing (not included) with Ikelite Dome (not included.)

The dome needs be very close to the front of the housing to provide the best images possible with super wide angle lenses.  The proximity of the port to the housing precludes the use of zoom function when using this adapter. Lenses must be used at a fixed focal length.

Modular 8-inch Dome sold separately.

Mirrorless Port System

An interchangeable lens camera demands a housing with interchangeable lens ports.  It couldn't be more simple to change ports than this system—just press the port on and tighten three thumb screws.  Feel positive reinforcement that the port is secure without any complex moving parts that can jam or break in a remote location.

* This lens has what's called a "Limit Switch" that keeps the lens from being used wider than 10mm.  That is because the lens naturally vignettes below 10mm when used on a APS-C sensor, like that of the Canon EOS 100D Rebel SL1.  This lens can be used at 8mm, but will vignette. This vignetting is caused by the sensor and not the dome/shade.
