In Topic: Zen minidome for Aquatica - advice required

17 August 2016 - 02:24 PM

Three years later and Zen now has the DP-100-ACR (with Removable shade). The mount is the same and does not allow the port to be locked.

The Zen port is a cheaper alternative to the Aquatica when using just the Canon 8-15mm Lens.

2016 Retail Price

Zen Port US$899 (extension not needed)

Aquatica Port US$734 + Extension US$249 = US$983

I'm planning on using the Canon 8-15mm.  I missed the option to have Aquatica remove the shade (or do it myself). However, with the Zen not needing an extension and thus one less seal along with the removable (and re-attachable) shade has me going in that direction. Time to see if updating the flat port at this time also makes sense.

Thanks all.

I'm going to try using a 4" dome on my next trip and wonder if there is any preference between the Zen DP-100-ACR and the Aquatica 18410 Mini Dome 100?

The Aquatica Mini Dome requires the 48463 Port Extension and the shade is not removable.

Does the Zen DP-100-ACR require a separate port extension?

Also, the shade is removable on the Zen and that has me leaning toward the Zen.

Thanks for any insight.
