Want to capture half half images and improve your GoPro underwater shots?
Then you need a dome port. By moving the waterline away from the GoPro lens a dome port dramatically improves camera's underwater functionality and image quality. Plus - it allows you to make those sick split photo shots that are half underwater, half above it.
Dome port acts as an extra optical element in front of your camera and solves three problems that occur in underwater photography due to the properties of air, water and light. The curvature of a dome ports minimizes the effects of refraction, radial distortion and chromatic aberration. In short - it makes your images sharper and cleaner, it increases the field of view and decreases underwater magnification. Choosing proper camera settings that take into the account all these variables requires an experienced DSLR photographer, but a GoPro camera with its nearly infinite depth of field and a wide-angle lens is a perfect match to the dome port making it's use as simple as pressing the shutter button.
The main problem with these kind of housings so far was the price. They cost anywhere from few hundreds up to a few thousands of dollars. Until now. SPLIT Dome Port for GoPro camera costs less than 100$.
SPLIT DOME PORT FEATURES
WHAT YOU WILL GET
Dome port is made out of high-grade Acrylic material & shock resistant ABS plastic. It is waterproof up to 40m. Your GoPro camera is additionally safely stored in a separate housing, similar to standard GoPro housing (or for Hero5 similar to Super Suit housing that alone costs over 40$). Camera housing can be removed from the dome and used separately if needed. All GoPro control buttons can be used while camera is fixed in the dome and if the camera has LCD screen on the back it is visible while the camera is in the dome. There are three different versions of the dome: HERO5, NORMAL and LCD (explained further down).
- Material: high-grade Acrylic material & shock resistant ABS plastic
- Size: 19 * 19 * 10cm / 7.5 * 7.5 * 3.9in
- Weight: 373g / 13.2oz
CARBON FLOATY GRIP
The floaty grip (bobber) is made out of carbon making it almost indestructible - it's 3 times as strong as steel and very lightweight. The mount at the top of the handle is a standard GoPro mount that fits the SPLIT Dome Port as well as ordinary GoPro camera housing or any other extension or gadget that uses this mount. This makes the grip very useful even without the port. Mount can be taken off the grip and used to put your GoPro on a regular photo tripod. There is a threaded insert at the bottom of the grip that holds the strap (leash) mount, this mount can also be removed. Grips like these alone sell for 29$.
