A friend of mine has the Canon G11 with the proprietary housing.   This housing does not have a threaded port or any other mount for wet WA lenses. 

 

I have boosted about how much a good WA lens would do, hower with this housing what are his options?  With an adapter there should be a selection of fish eye and rectilinears avaiable?

 

 

How about the "BigEye Lens G Series", he got an offer to buy a scratched one, but these does not seem to be that wide.

 

 

Cheers

The G11/G12 in orm housing have no wide angle option at best you can buy an air dome to restore the air field of view

Ok, thai is what the "BigEye" is I believe.

 

Didn't inon produce bayonet adapters that were fixed in the tripod screw of the housing?
