If you want truly breathtaking photos of underwater wildlife, you need to get close to your subject. SeaLife, a leader in underwater photography, today introduced a 24mm Wide-Angle Lens for its ReefMaster line of underwater cameras that allows photographers to come within 12 inches of underwater subjects.
Made from fully multi-coated optical glass, this new accessory increases photographers' field of vision by fifty percent. With the Wide-Angle Lens, enthusiasts can capture a five-foot shark from five feet away, or shoot nose-to-nose with a sea turtle.
The SeaLife Wide-Angle Lens can be easily attached or removed from any ReefMaster camera, even while underwater. Weighing in at nine ounces, with threelens elements in three groups and a 6160 aluminum housing, the lens is submersible up to 200 feet.

This lens helps greatly to eliminate that tunnel vision feeling you get when shooting with the standard supplied SeaLife lens. Highly recommend getting supplemental lighting equipment also.
The product claims to fit all SeaLife digital cameras, but that claim was apparently made before the Reefmaster Mini was released. As far as I can tell, it doesn't fit that model. Thus, I didn't have the opportunity to try the lens. To be fair, I left it with a 4 star rating. But I did want to warn anyone else purchasing the Pro Set (SL325) or the Reefmaster Mini (SL320).
