Hi there, 

 

I'm kind of interested in using this 4" Zen dome for the Canon 8-15 fisheye. However, the dome seems small. I wonder if it's possible to add a zoom gear to provide zoom functionality to the lens?

 

Cheers,

 

Kann

For Nauticam, you would use the Nauticam zoom gear which meshes with the zoom control on the inside of the housing so this is not affected by the port at all. Zen make a version with a detachable shade for using the 8-15mm on a full frame camera for a circular fisheye, I'd get this version.

Thanks Alex,

 

I'm thinking of getting Nauticam as well. :)
