The injection molded acrylic 8-inch diameter dome is specifically designed for underwater photography to provide superior optical performance. Compared to a smaller 4- or 6-inch diameter dome, the larger diameter reduces edge distortion on pictures taken with certain super-wide angle lenses and makes shooting over-under shots (half-in, half-out of the water) easier. Domes are ideal underwater for shooting wide angle lenses. If you're shooting a macro lens, we recommend using the Modular Glass Flat Front instead.
The Modular 8-inch Dome requires a compatible Lens Extension for attachment to the Ikelite DSLR housing. Lens Extensions are available in a variety of lengths to accommodate most popular wide angle and zoom lenses. Each Lens Extension simply threads into the base of the Modular 8-inch Dome for easy attachment and removal.

The AF35's built-in sensor transmits data from the camera's flash to the AF35 strobe, varying the strobe's power automatically to replicate TTL exposure. The AF35 sensor is positioned to provide the most reliable strobe triggering possible without exposed cables which require maintenance and can tangle or break.
Two large, easy to read dials provide all of the settings necessary for control of the flash system. The AF35 strobe rear dial features OFF, Auto (TTL) plus six Manual Power settings. The AF35 sensor rear dial provides simple plus/minus EV exposure compensation in the Auto (TTL) mode. The system's comfortable rubberized grip and neutral buoyancy make it a pleasurable addition to any housing. A flexible arm system allows quick repositioning of the strobe angle and adds no weight to the system.
A simple battery door is easy to remove and replace and provides a clear view of the o-ring seal. The strobe's battery compartment is independently sealed from the electronics preventing further damage in the event of a flood.
This kit includes everything you need to add a strobe to almost any Ikelite compact digital housing, plus other housings featuring 1/4-20 mounting like Canon, Olympus, Sony and more!
