Ikelite Releases New Version of Eight-Inch DLM Dome Port
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, June 24, 2020 @ 03:00 AM (EST)

Ikelite has released a new version of its eight-inch dome port for the company’s Dry Lock Micro (DLM) port system. The “V2” dome is specifically recommended for Ikelite’s Sony, Canon, and select Panasonic compact mirrorless camera housings using DLM/A, DLM/B, and DLM/C port systems.

At 2.2lb (998g), the port features an injection-molded acrylic dome that is only a little heavier than Ikelite’s six-inch dome ports but offers comparable optical quality to much heavier glass domes. Compared to smaller-diameter domes, the eight-inch dome allows for easier over-unders and boasts lower edge distortion when used with ultra-wide-angle lenses. The port includes a shade, and neoprene front and rear covers.

The DLM 8 inch Dome Port V2 is shipping now and costs $450.
