Wetpixel sponsor Marine Camera Distributors has provided photos of a new Nexus dome port designed specifically for the new Tokina 10-17mm zoom fisheye lens.
The 4.75” diameter coated glass dome DP1017-10 matches the 180° to 100° angle of coverage of the lens, and is “another in the line of lens specific ports” offered by Nexus.
Nexus introduces the new super coated glass dome port DP1017-10 made specifically for the Tokina 10-17 fisheye zoom lens. This small dome, only 4.75 inches diameter overall, is another in the line of lens specific ports that Nexus offers. Rather than use big oversized domes the Nexus approach is to match a glass dome, small in size, to individual lenses. With a zoom lens like the Tokina 10-17 you have a zoom range for wide angle coverage from 180 degrees to 100 degrees of coverage. The small dome port keeps the camera housing manageable underwater and very small for travel. The HG 725 zoom gear is used for the zoom control.
This is truly a landmark lens for underwater photography when you need a wide range of image coverage.
