Two Different Dome Materials to Choose; Acrylic or Glass
The Dome Lens Unit IIIA Using High Transparency Optical Acrylic Material
High transparency and lightweight optical acrylic dome provides quality image on a level with that of optical glass dome. Acrylic is better tolerated than polycarbonate to discoloration by inevitable ultraviolet rays outdoors or scratches during long-term usage assuring underwater use. The acrylic version is budget-friendly so would be good choice for those thinking to start wide angle photography.
The Dome Lens Unit IIIG Using Multicoated Optical Glass
Optical multi-coating effectively suppresses flare/ghosting likely to happen in clear and bright underwater condition to provide quality images with appropriate contrast. The glass version delivers stable results in any situation, so is recommendable for those shooting in various scenes.
Optical Multi-coating Dramatically Improves Performance in Backlit Situation
Both acrylic and glass version are finished with optical multi-coating which suppresses flare/ghosting effectively when shooting in bright and clear water or using back lighting technique to produce clear and quality images with appropriate contrast.
Maximum Underwater Angle of View 141°
The UWL-95 C24’s native underwater coverage approx. 95° will further increase to approx. 141° by installing the Dome Lens Unit III. A compact digital camera equipped with a large 1.0-type image sensor fitted with this optical combination enables to deliver vivid wide angle imaging as like an action camera without vignetting.
*Rated angle of view is approximate value.
No Vignetting at Zoom Wide End 24 mm
The Dome Lens Unit III is optimally designed for a compact digital camera equipped with a large 1.0-type image sensor enabling to shoot at wide end 24mm/f1.8 without vignetting. Compatible with a water-proof camera equipped with standard 1/2.3-type image sensor as well to shoot without vignetting at zoom wide end 25mm. No need to zoom in or change camera zoom setting not to have vignetting as like previous models.
Minimum Focusing Distance 0cm
As same as the UWL-95 C24 wide lens, a combination with the Dome Lens Unit III keeps same minimum focusing distance 0cm.* Both Close Focus Wide Angle (CFWA) imaging just in front of a subject or wide imaging to capture broad seascape are possible through the same lens combination.
*At zoom wide end
Usable with All Zoom Range

Selectable Dome Material When Repairing
Either acrylic or glass material is available when purchasing. The dome material is replaceable one to another when repairing based on usage or budget as both material use same dome lens barrel.
