advice on adapting Seacam wet diopter to Aquatica port

Recommended Posts

I am looking for advice on how I can use a Seacam wet diopter on an Aquatica port. This lens has an external o-ring that securely pops into a groove machined into the outside internal lip of the macro port. The Seacam port diam is 10.4cm and the Aquatica port is 12.4cm internal diam. I need to be able to take this on and off the port under water. This is a great lens which converts 1:1 to 1.7:1. It is only 1.4 cm thick so it can easily slip into a pocket, and is much more compact than the only other wet diopter I can find (the Macromate also costs $200 more than the $300 Seacam lens). So if you have any great ideas please let me know.

 

Thanks

I have made several adapters for various people along the lines of what you need. I made an adapter for the Inon diopters to fit my aquatica port and it sound svery similar.....PM me if you are interested and /or still need this ...

I'm very interested in this too. I wonder if Aquatica plans on anything like this for their new glass macro ports?

Just take your port to the local machine shop, they can build you an adapter for a few 10s of dollars.

Aquatica has made an adapter for the Wood'y diopter to their aquatica port already. the diopter is removable from the adapter.

Hey Todd,

I haven't seen that adapter on Aquatica's website. Can you give me a part number or location to take a look?

 

Thanks
