Because the Nauticam dome is not a true hemispherical dome the answer is somewhat a guess but the back of the dome should be somewhere around 110-120 mm from the face of the cameras lens flange for that lens.

What speed is the camera set to?  Have you contacted the manufacturer of the digital adapter about this yet?  info@heinrichsweikamp.com

Where else are you getting information from?  We might enjoy reading that also.  Where would you get the raw dome material to make this item?

Hi All,

 

I'm looking at doing a modification of my Meikon housing but rather than extending the tube I'm looking at putting an acrylic dome on the housing to replace the flat port. I'll only be using the housing for snorkeling rather than deep diving. Inspiration for this came from the below link, which is based on the older model of the Meikon housing.

What are people's thoughts on whether this is possible and how I'd go about doing it?

 

Cheers,

 

Andy

 

Andy when you mention replaceing the flat port with a mini dome you also add a few other problems like placement of the dome to ensure edge sharpness. This is based on the nodal point of the lens and varies from lens to lens. I personally think the ultimate solution is to modify the housing to use interchangeable ports so you can use different lenses, otherwise you are restricted to one lens. This is also the same problem with putting this dome on a housing with a zoom lens as most zoom lenses nodal points move around a lot. Attached are some links for you.
