Ikelite WD-4 overview

  • 1Description

Cut the distortion to your wide-angle underwater shots using the WD-4 Wide-Angle Conversion Dome from Ikelite. Featuring a conversion factor of 0.75x, the WD-4 corrects for the refractive magnification of a flat port underwater to restore the camera's original angle of coverage, resulting in images that are crisp and clear edge-to-edge. This port is constructed of an optical-grade acrylic dome and a flat piece of optical-grade glass. The WD-4 can be slipped on and off of your Ikelite housing's standard port during a dive, so there's no limit to the camera's zoom or macro capabilities. The specific angle of coverage depends on your camera model, however approximately 3/4 of the camera's zoom range can be used with the dome in place. For example, the WD-4 and Canon G10 combination provides a 28mm angle of coverage with incredibly crisp corners underwater. The WD-4 wide-angle dome is compatible with any Ikelite housing featuring a 3.9" diameter lens port.

    Ikelite WD-4 reviews

    WD-4 Wide-Angle Conversion Dome Port is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Like the specifications said, the dome simply slides onto the Ikelite port. Easy to use and of course great that it is a wet lens as it gives more flexibility. Best to add a bit of silicone gel on the rubber rim on the inside of the dome to make taking on/off an easier affair. There are two air-holes on the dome but not all air bubbles escape this way so it was a bit of a pain to open it, let the bubbles out and put it back on again. It may seem like a small matter as it only takes 30 seconds at the beginning of the dive to adjust this but if it is a whale shark dive then the 30 seconds feel way too long! You will also need to zoom in with the camera just a little to get rid of the dome sticking out at the sides but even with the zoom-in, it is still very wide. Corners are crisp and my pictures have been great. All in all, a great product, highly recommended.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice dome, terrible mount This dome is clearly very well machined and the optics look very good, but all of that goes out the door when it comes to the mount. Basically, there's a thin o-ring inside the mount. When the dome slides onto the housing that o-ring is supposed to drop into the channel that holds the plastic flash diffuser. It's a struggle to get the dome on and off. I had to hold the housing between my knees and wiggle the dome on and off with two hands. No way am I taking on that task at depth. The first time I pulled the dome off the o-ring fell out. As a wet mount I expect to be able to install and remove the dome at will during a dive. This one just doesn't make that feasible.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dome provides good field of view Used the dome on the Ikelite housing for a full week on every dive. When fully filled with water between the dome and the housing it provides good clear pictures. The only draw back is that it will not auto fill with water when entering with the dome affixed to the housing. Below 20 feet it can't be removed to flood it if there is an air bubble trapped in between the housing and the dome. Would be better if it would self vent.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for wet port, but beware the glare It is OK, but has 2 issues: the o-rings tend to stretch out of shape with adding & removing. Mine will no longer fit in the grooves without a loop protruding. The other thing is that you will see reflections off the inner port lens if you shoot into the sun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive This is a solid built, easy to use accessary. looks very impressive when mounted on the housing. Functions well underwater. Is a bit heavy out of the water as it is of good size and heavy construction.
