It is time to post another gallery of over under photos. This time photos come from my recent Sumatra surf trip. I must say that surfing was the main goal of the trip which means two 3-4h surf sessions a day. That left me with like 2% of the day energy supply for things like eating and taking over under photos :)). So these were shot pretty quickly and the conditions were not the best when it comes to water clarity. How clear the water is changed from day-to-day depending on the swell, wind, rain, currents…I guess, I don’t really know. So one day it could be so clear that surfing a wave felt like floating on air just above the coral heads and other days you could not see the toes on your feet when siting on your board. To bad I didn’t score the clear water conditions when I had my Split dome port with me. BTW: if you are interested in what are the best conditions for over under photography and get loads of other tips check out our e-book. Read More

In September 2016 GoPro has released their new version of the most popular action camera in the world - the GoPro Hero5. The list of all the specifications is long, here are a few that we are most excited about:
- Voice Control - you can start shooting with your voice, great for times when your hands are busy holding the handlebars, paddling etc..:)
- 2-Inch Touch Display - if your GoPro is not H4 silver then this is a great upgrade, you see what you shoot and how the shots turned out
- Waterproof - it's waterproof up to 10m without the special housing!
- Video stabilization
- 4k video, 12MP photos, RAW WDR photos, GPS etc...
The question that we get asked a lot since the release is:
"Does the Split Dome Port work with GoPro Hero5 Black? Where can I get a Dome Port for GoPro Hero5?"
We are excited to say YES. There is a new version of Split Dome Port available that works with the new Hero5 camera and after a lot of testing it is ready for shipping! The new version is specially made just for the Hero5 camera, so make sure you choose the right version when buying.
Hero5 dome has a separate camera housing similar to the new super suit that fits into the dome so you are also getting a housing that allows you to take your Hero5 and Split Dome port deeper than 10m below surface. Plus - there is no need to remove the lens from the camera before putting it into the housing and into the dome making our dome the most simple end friendly to use. For some photos and more info on the new dome read our short review.
Over half of the domes in the first batch were reserved in the pre-order time so hurry up to get one of the remaining domes. Please go to our homepage to order.

At the moment the only GoPro camera that has built in LCD screen on the back is the GoPro Hero 4 – Silver. All other cameras need a LCD bacpac extension to get the same result. This extension makes the camera wider which means that it will not fit into the regular waterproof housing and – into regular GoPro dome ports. Up until now you could not get a GoPro dome that would fit the camera together with the LCD bacpac but things have just changed. Read More
We are starting a photo tutorial with tips and tricks on how to capture amazing over under photos with your Split dome port. First here is a little something that looks like it was custom-made for dome port/gopro photography – taking photos of things falling into water. Usually photographers use a fish tank filled with water to get the split over under photo effect and a trigger system to catch the exact right moment when the object hits the water. Read More
