DC4 6 Inch Dome for Compact Housings

About this Product

Want to shoot split shots (half-in, half-out of the water) with your compact digital system? Wet lenses will increase your angle of view but create a difficult double water line when used at the surface. The answer is a 6" diameter dry dome which lengthens and smoothes the waterline yet remains compact and lightweight for travel.

Underwater, the dry dome increases your angle of coverage significantly compared to a flat port. The dome exhibits much less edge distortion than an external wet wide angle lens.

Wide angle and zoom

Underwater, the dome corrects for refraction to provide the full wide field of view. That's substantially wider than a flat port, which magnifies the image 1.33x and reduces the field of view. Approximately 3/4 of the camera's zoom range is usable with the dome installed.

Over-unders

At the surface, the large dry dome gives you greater control to get a clean, smooth water line when shooting split shots (half-in, half-out of the water). This type of shot can be impossible to get with a flat port, and extremely difficult with a wet lens or dome where you're fighting double water lines.

Ease of use

The dome replaces the standard port on the housing. Simply unthread the standard flat port and thread in the DC4 Dome unit. We recommend a rubber strap wrench commonly available at your local hardware store or as product # 0945.01 (not included). The included dome shade reduces reflections, protects the dome, and allows you to set the housing down on its face for easy assembly and disassembly.

How long will it take for my order to arrive after I make payment?

That depends on where you live and whether we have an item in stock or not. While we do have many items in stock, we don't carry everything. If you need an item in a hurry, it's a good idea to contact us and find out if your item is in stock.

If it is, we can usually send it out as soon as we receive payment. If an item is not in stock, we'll need to order it from our suppliers, which means it can take 1-2 weeks to arrive at your door (usually closer to a week).

Sometimes delivery can take longer, if our manufacturers are out of stock, for example, but this is unusual - we let customers know as soon as possible if something like this happens.

How do you ship my orders?

CourierPost aims for next day delivery nationwide between major towns and cities in the North Island. South Island delivery can take two days.
