The Ikelite Mirror-Less Port Adapter allows for the attachment of a Modular 8-inch Dome (see SKU: IK551045) to any Ikelite Housing for a Compact DSLR or Mirror-Less 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 dome needs to 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. An interchangeable lens camera demands housing with interchangeable lens ports. It couldn't be simpler 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.
The Ikelite Mirror-Less Port Adapter for Modular 8-inch Dome is compatible with the following mirror-less lenses: Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18 mm, Olympus M.Zuiko 12-40 mm, Olympus M.Zuiko 12-50 mm, Panasonic 8 mm Fisheye*, Panasonic 7-14 mm, Sony 10-18 mm, Sony 16 mm, Sony 16 mm with Fisheye Converter*, Sony 16-50 mm and Sony 18-35 mm.
* Minimal vignetting (shadows in the corners of the image) will be present due to the ultra-wide angle of coverage.
The Ikelite Mirror-Less Port Adapter for Modular 8-inch Dome is compatible with the following compact DSLR lenses: Tokina 10-17 mm Fisheye, Canon 8-15 mm*, Canon 10-18 mm, Sigma 15 mm f/2.8 EX, Rokinon 8 mm
* 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 an 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. Included with the Acetyl port adapter are spare securing screws, silicone lubricant 1cc tube and instruction guide. The port adapter is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.
