Ikelite 5510.45 overview

  • 1Description

Capture wide shots of coral reefs, whale sharks, and shipwrecks with the help of Ikelite's FL/DLM Modular 8" Dome Lens Port, which has a depth rating of 200'. It is designed for wide-angle and zoom lenses on DSLR and mirrorless cameras that are inside Ikelite's FL and DLM-mount underwater housings. The dome ships without a required lens extension, and accepts a variety of models to accommodate most wide and zoom lenses. These extensions connect directly to the mounts on the camera housings. Please click on the links below for complete compatibility details.

The 8" dome magnifies images to a lesser degree than a flat port does, and corrects for the underwater size distortion that makes everything appear 25% larger and closer--thus helping to restore a wide angle of view. It also enables the capture of over / under photos, where half the image is above the water's surface and the other half is below it. Additionally, the included shade blocks excess light, preventing glare and lens flare when shooting towards the surface.

For a full list of compatible lenses and extensions, please see the following port charts:

    Ikelite 5510.45 reviews

    FL/DLM Modular 8" Dome Port for Wide-Angle DSLR/Mirrorless Lenses is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than the 6 dome I moved up to the 8 dome from the 6, and the difference in my footage using a Tokina 11-16 was dramatic. The corners are sharper and since I have a look around area visible on my monitor, I can see that the edges of the dome are much farther away from the edges of the sensor's recorded area. Feels like I'm shooting through the sweet spot in this dome instead of barely fitting in the image. As other have mentioned, it's BIG, so be very sure the dimensions are acceptable to your specific housing. Also, I use a shower cap over the port opening when it's off the housing to prevent any dust/etc. from falling inside, because the inside of this dome is not easy to clean.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome wide angle! I used this recently on a trip to Baja with a Canon 10-22 lens. Given the fact that this is relatively low-production, high-end stuff, no complaints. The optical quality is great compared with previous compact digicam housing I've used. This is the only dSLR dome I've used, so I can't make a comparison there. But there is certainly no obvious vignetting or aberration, all the way to the edges. It's awesome. As a potential purchaser, there are a few things to keep in mind: 1. The dome is *plastic*. You gotta be careful to not scratch it. 2. It's uncoated. If you shoot over-unders with the sun in the frame, you can get a reflection of the lens itself in your images, if you're not careful. 3. It's very large. The dome and port body are together about as big as the dSLR housing they're attached to. 4. As with wide-angle photography, the large depth-of-field means that bubbles, dirt, etc. on the dome are going to show up very easily.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great wide angle improvment from Ikelite Used the new 8 dome for the first time last week taking wide angle shots of sharks at South Africa's Protea Banks. When used with my 10-17mm FE lens I got significantly less vignetting than with the old 6 Ike dome. Easy to use and the increased volume of air inside the port gave me an almost completetly neutrally bouyant set up whem combinde with twin stobed. However, although I've had no problems Ikelite's dual port clips do leave one with a slight sense of fragiltiy. On a recent dive a friend of mine did have his dome come loose resulting in a carastrohpic flood. Of course this may have been user error!! personally I'm extremely happy with the port and find mysel moving more from my first love of macro photography to more and more wide angle work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ikelite Dome for wide angle lens The only raison I don't give it a 5 stars is because is an acrylic dome.I use it with a 24mm lens and it give me great result even for split shots.The acrylic dome doesn't shed the water drop as much than a glass dome...Images from the first shoot came out great!I recomand it over the 6 dome that I have used for years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I have one I've used for years for my Nikon 12-24 wide angle. I purchased the Nikon fisheye and it needed a different extension kit and I had to remove the shade. I bought the second dome port to use for it. Easier to have the kit pre-mounted on the correct port. Both ports work great.
    Date published: 2018-08-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value New 4 port locks makes a great product even better. 8 port for the third of the next competitors price. Take care not to scratch the port inside. Scrachtes on the outer part don't matter much 'cause watter has almost the same index of diffraction so the scratches become invisible.
    Date published: 2011-08-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't bump into anything! This is a very large dome & if you're unaccustomed to underwater video/photography, you can easily bump into coral or other & scratch the surface as I did. It does provide the widest possible view using a wide angle lens. No leakage during frequent underwater sessions.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Results, but not perfect I use this dome with my Nikon 10-24mm and fisheye lens underwater with my Ikelite D300 housing. Thus far, results have been decent-- only the quality of the materials is questionable. Even when attempting to clean the lens with the softest microfiber cloth, I noticed swirl marks appearing on the dome itself. I was not thrilled about this or with the difficulty of cleaning the inside of the dome. All that being said, this product is relatively inexpensive compared to other brands and the dome itself has yielded excellent results thus far. This is also the most critical piece in the modular port system-- it's hard to avoid buying this dome if you're going wide underwater. I'd just like it a lot more if the dome surface was coated with something more resilient. No issues whatsoever with leakage, although as you descend, you might hear a few noises as pressure on the housing mounts. These noises made my heart skip a beat the first few times because it almost sounded like something was cracking, but it turned out to be nothing.
