Hi i have bought my first water housing and its a vintage one. Its a aquatic 4n for the nikon f4 and it has only got a flat port. However i want to use my 21 mm carl zeiss lens but then i guess i need a 8 inch dome (It that what is reccomended?) I have looked onlig but they are so expencive. And i don't want to buy the wrong one. Since its an old type is there some adapters or does the new aquatic domes work for the old camera housings as well, I hope i made myself clear and i hope there was not to many questions here. But its so hard to find answers when there is so little information about this online. 

Kind regards

You're not alone, I have the same issue with an aquatica III for my nikon F3, bought it today

Threaded domes have been in production until the F90 housing, than oceaneye switched to user friendly bayonet(1990-1995)

You can find a vintage plexiglass dome for $$
Ask someone to make it for you, $$$
Ask oceaneye, $$$$
Star machining aluminum or plastic and find you way, $$$

Good luck and keep film alive
