Yes, you must remove the rubber ring.

For my camera/housing, Zen 170mm dome, Sigma 15mm fisheye, two inon z-240 just the 8 floats on the arms pictured above works great in the ocean. 


In Topic: Best solution for a balanced macro rig

Nikon DSLR (last time i shot macro was D7000, will be D810 next time)...

 

4 arms, each with two StiX jumbo floats & a StiX macro ring float around the port.

 

I removed the velcro strap from the ring float, and took a length of 1/8" bungee folded in half and threaded it through so it had, in effect, two lengths of bungee running around it. Loop the bungee over the focus light mount on the port and it doesn't go anywhere.

In Topic: Dome ports for D800+Sigma 15+Nikon 16-35

I bought the Zen 170mm glass dome to use with my Sigma 15mm, and I am happy with it.

 

My friend has a 16-35, and I will try it on a dive or two this fall. We shoot the same camera and housing (D810 NA-D810), so we will get to do a lot of swapping of lenses and such over a 10 day liveaboard. We will have the following: Sigma 15, Nikon 16-35, Nikon 20mm, Zen 170 and 200mm domes, kenko 1.4 tc, and 105VR/SMC for macro along with required extensions and gears etc. Should be a fun time.
