I don’t think so. But I am happy to be proven wrong....

I think its a DIY job if you want an acrylic dome for a Subal, such as this one:

Thank you very much for your replies.

 

My problem is that I have a Zen 230 dome for Sea&Sea and I would like to use it with my Subal housing...

I don’t think that will be possible then. The diameter of the port opening on the Sea and Sea is larger than the Subal Type 3.

is that the nice glass dome? what lens would you use with it? I could make you a custom adapter, contact me off line.

The Zen 230mm dome can have its bayonet ring changed. Mine was converted from Subal to Nauticam.

 

I'm sure that if you contact Zen, they will be able to convert it from Sea & Sea to Subal.

 

All the best
