About Ikelite SLR Dome Port

The Ikelite dome is injection molded specifically for underwater photography, and represents the finest optics in the industry. Recommended for wide angle lenses from 17mm to 28mm, and short zoom lenses

Zoom lenses require a +4 diopter close-up lens available from camera stores. Wide angle lenses will focus at 12" and do not require the addition of any close-up lens when used in a dome port.

Perfect fit for my lens


from Conyers, BA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This port is a perfect fit for my Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens. I looked into the bulkier and considerably more expensive 8" dome port, but can't see a need for it as I get great images with no vignetting using this lens. YMMV if you use a different lens.

Shopper  Hello, I have a Nikon D3200 with the next lens: 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR AF-S DX I would like to use the 6801.32 Underwater housing can you tell me if this SLR Dome Port fits ok into the housing and if it would work with my actual lens? Do I need any other item to start shooting underwater ? any kind of filters? Adapters?
CINDY B  Hi: Your question was forwarded to me by Adorama because I purchased that lens port recently. I am actually using a Canon but did a lot of research prior to getting the housing and lens port (including asking Ikelite for particulars). I can tell you that the lens port fits beautifully on the housing and worked nicely (just returned from my first dives using this camera setup). This lens port will fit on the housing that you need for your Nikon (Ikelite makes a lot of their parts fit together). My lens was an 18-55 zoom also (Canon) so there is one additional thing you'll need but it should come with your housing. It is a clear plastic ring that fits into the gearing of the housing and attaches to the lens with a rubber ring clamp. This allows you to twist the lens (zoom in and out) using a knob on the housing. It works well, though it took me a few minutes to figure out what I was supposed to do with the device. Another bit of advice: I got a shortened version of the manual with my housing purchase but Ikelite did email me the full manual in pdf format. The full manual gave better instruction on the use of that gearing ring which you will have to use for your 18-55 lens. You should also think about a strobe. Happy shooting!!
