In Topic: Wet Wide Angle Lens Recommendations

24 April 2019 - 11:45 PM

Thank you, at the moment it is more the topic of the soft corners. With the Inon i got with the A6500 for my opinion to much soft corners.

I would like to use wetlens because of the felxibility but if the others (WWL-1 and/or Fantasea UWL 09) are also so soft in the corners like the Inon i will go for a wide angle lens with a dome.


I thought the UWL-H100 is designed for compact cameras with 28mm maybe this one of the reassons of the soft corners. At my RX100 i do not noticed soft corners that much.

Hello Marcus, I do the white balance with the red filters on and ambient light. And if you need to use the lights and if you have the red filters on then I would also use the blue filters on the lights and white balance again. It's not as good as cannons below 40ft but the red filter helps a lot. 

Hey, thank you for your reply.


Do you own the cyan Filters? I fear of the point that the cyan filter will block to much light. I heard of about 2 stops of light.

Do you get WB error nevertheless also with the red filter?


What kind of Keldan filter do you use? 67mm Version on the port or directly on the lens inside of the housing?


thank you

Do you know the quality difference of the wide angle lenses (UWL-H100, WWL-1 and UWL 09F/Pro) when mounted on a apsc camera?

As i wrote i got a lot of soft corners in my images with my A6500 camera. I thought the UWL-H100 performs not that good on APSC cameras for sure with 24 or less mm lenses.


Like in this Video, this was the first test of the new setup.

At the moment i have to make the decision of bying a dome port with the sony 10-18mm or bying a new wetlens like WWL-1 or Fantasea UWL 09.

Thank you.

right now i use my "old" Inon UWL-H100 LD Version with my new A6500 Setup with an M67 to LD Adapter.

Not happy at all with that Setup.


For the old Setup with the RX100 the wet lens is great. But for the APSC Camera the corner sharpness is really weak i dont like it.


End of may i can test the Nauticam WWL-1 lens, i hope it will be better performance. The UWL 09F from Fantasea would be also an option?

Got the 13,000 lumen 92 cri with spectrum and ambient filters. (Filters only to compensate for my sony a6500 poor white balance) otherwise couldn’t be happier with them. I used sola f2000’s before.

Hi, just a short question. I have also problems with the weak white balance of the A6500.


Am i right that i put on the spectrum red filter to the housing or lens and try to make a custom whitebalance with the red filter to the ambient light and after that i put on the Lights with the ambient filters?


Right now i look for new lights (i also use 2 Sola 2000 at the moment) and Keldan 8X is my favourite one but i dont know if i need the spectrum and ambient light filters. On the Keldan Homepage and on the comercial videos they told we have to do a proper white balance to use this Setup.


Thank you very much for a short reply to this topic.
