Mini-Dome for GoPro?


Recommended Posts

My wife bought the Hero12 black and a really cheap (40.-) Domeport from „telesin“, rated down to 15m. Feels little plastic.

What makes me totally unhappy is that she took pictures that really look nice. Really. 

Is there a stable solution also? Meaning small dome for GoPro that will survive more than 5-10 dives and more than 15m?

The best option is the Inon UFL-G140 SD Underwater Semi-fisheye Conversion Lens, which corrects the underwater view from from 94° to 140°. It's a water contact lens, so you can't really use for half-half pictures (as your example above). There is a workaround to apply a special O-ring (and contact the lens underwater.

There is a new cheaper alternative, the AOI UWL-03 Wide Angle Lens (almost half price) that has a similar quality.

Hi Nikolausz,

 

Thanks for your help!

Actually both INON and AOI seem not to support splitshots, but could provide narrower focusing and better image quality. The Telesin port has a diameter of 6" (18cm) - what seems to be the lowest size for splits.

 

But maybe worth a try.

Do you need it exclusively for split shots?

The inon supports split shots but you have to buy an extra ring. "Split Easy for UFL-G140 SD"

Ah, now I got it - that's what you meant by "There is a workaround to apply a special O-ring (and contact the lens underwater. ".

OK, seems to be interesting! Thanks a lot!
