DLM 8 inch Dome Port

About this Product

Comparable image quality to glass yet several pounds lighter and easier to handle, especially at the surface of the water.

A new acetyl base allows the dome port to attach directly to a compatible housing with DLM port system and weighs only slightly more than our smaller diameter 6" dome ports.

Image Quality

The injection molded acrylic 8" diameter dome is specifically designed for underwater photography to provide superior optical performance. This dome provides image quality virtually indistinguishable from glass yet several pounds lighter and easier to handle, especially at the surface of the water.

Compared to smaller 4" and 6" diameter domes, the larger dome reduces edge distortion on pictures taken with certain super-wide angle lenses and makes shooting over-under shots (half-in, half-out of the water) easier.

Domes are ideal underwater for shooting wide angle and zoom lenses. If you're shooting a macro lens, we recommend using the a flat port instead.

For use with compatible housings featuring DLM/A, DLM/B, and DLM/C port systems. Refer to the appropriate lens port for your housing to determine compatibility. This dome port cannot be used with DL or FL port systems.

External filters are not compatible with dome ports. Look for filters that attach to your lens prior to installation. We recommend Magic Filters (not sold by Ikelite).

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.
