Using shades with dome ports

Recommended Posts

I have two hoods for my new Aquatica A100 housing: one for wide angle lenses, and one for fisheye. As the former is humoungous, I was wondering if anyone has shot with a 20mm lens and the hood for the fisheye, ( with the A90/A100/F5) and had acceptable results. Will I get flare? I just thought it would be better for travelling to take only one shade along.

 

Cheers,

Marli

The fisheye dome shade does less "shading" than the Wideangle shade. So your thinking is correct - if you must take only one, take the fisheye shade.

 

Yes, the potential for flare is higher when using a 20mm lens w/ the fisheye shade. Since the shade only blocks a little light from above and almost none from the sides.

 

Give it a try but just be careful when shooting w/ the sun in the hemisphere of water in front of the dome.

 

Good luck!

 

On my digital camera, I shoot everything w/ the wideangle shade - but that's because of the digital crop.
