The hand crafted Zen Underwater 200mm (8") Optical Glass Dome Port represents the state of the art in dome port design and manufacturing proficiency, and optical technology. Our unique modular universal mount system makes it a snap to adapt to housings from Subal, Nauticam, Sea & Sea, Nexus, and Aquatica, making this the last dome port you may ever need. The stunning photographic results will make it the only dome port you ever want.
At the heart of the Zen Underwater port is an 8" segment of a much larger BK7 crystal glass dome. This yields optical performance on par with virtually any similar or larger dome currently available. The large radius assures a thin water line for over/under shooting, and the glass minimizes water beading.
The interior of the dome element is coated with a magnesium fluoride broadband anti-reflective coating to minimize internal reflections from camera lenses, lettering on cameras, etc. which can be problematic when shooting over/under scenes.
The exterior is treated with a proprietary scratch resistant coating to control lens flare. This coating yields an amazing 99.7%+ transmissive value for true distortion free images.
The exclusive Zen Modular Mount mates with the dome assembly via a reliable and rugged bayonet mount, eliminating any possibility of dissimilar metal corrosion. The mount currently support Nauticam, Subal Type 3, Subal Type 4, Sea & Sea, Nexus M5, and Aquatica housings.
The heavy duty (4mm thick) aluminum shade is designed to offer a lifetime of service and extends far enough to protect the dome when placed face down.
We truly believe that this is the finest 200mm optical dome port available today. Whether you are looking for spectacular results with fisheye lenses, tack sharp corners with wide rectilinear lenses, or the finest results possible with problematic zoom lenses, the Zen 200mm Optical Glass Dome Port is the answer.
If you want to 'future proof' your investment, our modular mount insures that it will be adaptable no matter what housing you choose in the future. We cordially invite you to experience the Zen Underwater DP-200.
