8” dome port: for all Aquatica bayonet style housings
The 8” dome port is the longest standing port in Aquatica’s
arsenal. Since its introduction in the 80’s, images taken
using the 8” dome port have graced all major underwater
magazines at one point or another. To this day it is
still a favourite among professional photographers who demand
quality and reliability.
A real work horse, the port is a general
purpose dome port made of optical grade acrylic and is well
suited for large rectilinear wide angle and fisheye lenses. The 8” radius
means it can easily be used for over/under photos and will
produce a smooth and thin water line.
Made of optical grade acrylic, this material which has a density
factor very similar to water means that minor external scratches
on the dome surface are unlikely to show up in the final image,
and should they ever appears, it is more than likely the surface
can be repaired on site with an acrylic refurbishing kit. One
of the reasons the acrylic domes are favoured by many professional
photographers is that the easy to polish material provides
years of loyal services and easy field maintenance even in
the remotest of places.
This 8” dome port will accept
a wide range of lenses by using various extensions
