Manufacturer's Description follows:
The Gates SWp44c Fathom Imaging Wide Angle Port is designed for use with the Gates EX1, EX1R and HVX 200a underwater Housings. Made of 9 elements of glass, with corner to corner sharpness, the Gates SWP44c allows full zoom through capability and up to 120 degrees Field of View.
Gates Super Wide Ports are exceptional designs because they provide both super wide field of view (up to 120 degrees) and full zoom through capability for ~1.5in / 38mm macro. A single Hi Performance port now supports a vast range of shooting situations with no loss of clarity or sharpness through the entire camera zoom range. A member of the Gates family of premium ports, these underwater optics are analyzed and tested for compatibility with HD cameras to ensure no degradation of image quality.
To achieve this performance first requires a design by Fathom Imaging that includes several (up to 6) optical-grade glass elements. They are protected with an anti-reflective (AR) coating, then nitrogen purged / vacuum sealed into an aluminum shell. While the front dome element has a hard AR coating and protected by a shade, it is not field replaceable. Care must be exercised to avoid contact with sharp objects (like coral).
Super Wide Ports are a must when this type of flexibility is required with no loss of optical quality. Working professionals and experienced videographers are most likely to utilize the full potential of these ports.
