GoPro dome port for the best over-under shots

First of all, let’s see what is a dome port exactly and how it works? Dome port is an extra optical element in front of your camera and might solve the three main problems if it comes to underwater photography: properties of water, light and air. Basically, the dome port makes your photos cleaner and sharper, increases the field of view and decreases underwater magnification – the curve of the port minimizes the effects of refraction, radial distortion and chromatic aberration. Dome ports for DSLR cameras are very expensive, but fortunately half-half images are not the privilege of DSLR users anymore, you also can upgrade your GoPro with a dome port!

Tips and tricks for the best split shots

Choose a sunny day – the light greatly improve the shots

Don’t point the dome into the sun – keep the sun behind your back

Choose clear water – shoot when the visibility is good, bright sand is better than dark algae and mud

Avoid fogging – assemble the dome somewhere dry and/or use GoPro Anti-fog camera lens inserts

Get rid of the water drops – try to keep the top half of the dome dry and/or use special wax (or simple lick your dome, let it dry for 1-2 minutes and then dip it into water, this is a tested and very popular way )

Protect your dome – avoid scratches and cover your SPLIT GoPro dome port with the Neoprene Cover if you don’t use it

Keep the dome clean – sand, salt or other tiny parts could damage your dome so make sure to rinse the dome with fresh water after seawater use. Sometimes you will need to clean from inside as well-check in the „how to use video” or on the SPLIT official site how can you do this and always use cleaning agent that does not harm acrylic materials!split-gopro-dome-port
