4” dome port, Bk-7 coated Mineral glass: for all Aquatica bayonet style housings
The latest addition to our dome port line up is this ultra compact fisheye dome port of just 4” / 100mm in diameter. The dome is made of BK-7 grade mineral glass which is finely grounded to the highest standard of precision. It’s coated at no extra cost with a superior Silicon Oxide coating (SiO2) on the convex surface and with a Broad Band Anti Reflective (BBAR) coating on the concave surface. The SiO2 coating is not only a more resistant type of coating than that used by most other manufacturers, but also has a 0.01% reflective index, providing unparallel light transmission among its competitor. Another important feature of SiO2 coating is that it’s a perfect match to the index of water, which naturally lowers reflections. Both the SiO2 and BBAR coatings not only prevent internal and external reflections but also protect the surface from scratches.
As its name implies, this dome’s main characteristic is its small size, making it exceptionally well suited for the close focusing fisheye lens. The reduced frontal footprint not only means that the photographer can move in closer to get the shot, but that it will be much easier for them to position their strobes for lighting the subject at such short distances.
In these days of heavy travel restrictions, the Mini Dome 100, with its diminutive size and feather light weight, is a dream to pack and, in most cases, can be carried inside a regular camera bag.
The dome port’s small size does not mean it is not versatile. The Mini Dome 100 can be used with the proper extensions rings to fit fisheye lenses equipped with teleconverters in order to shoot close focus wide angle, which yields images with a radically different perspective.
he lens chart associated with your camera housing will inform you of the necessary and recommended accessories for using the Mini Dome 100 dome port. The Mini Dome 100 dome shade is integrated and come with its own neoprene cover.
