Ikelite has released a new eight-inch dome port for their DLM port system. The Dry Lock Micro (DLM) port system is featured on underwater housings for select mirrorless, micro four-thirds, and compact DSLR cameras. The port is compatible with housings featuring Ikelite’s DLM/A, DLM/B, and DLM/C port systems.
Weighing in at 2.2lb (998g), the new eight-inch dome is only slightly heavier than Ikelite’s six-inch dome ports, but according to the company, the injection-molded acrylic dome offers comparable optical quality to much more unwieldy glass domes. Compared to smaller-diameter domes, the eight-inch dome offers reduced distortion when used with ultra-wide-angle lenses as well as easier opportunities for split shots.
Shipping now for an MSRP of $450, the dome includes a shade, and neoprene front and rear covers.
