KNEKT KSD6 6" Dome Port for GoPro HERO3/3+/4 Camera with Standard Housing
Simple, one-handed, point-and-shoot style shooting.
The KNEKT KSD6 Dome Port is a semi-hemispherical 6" dome that's one of the most advanced accessories available for the GoPro HERO3/3+/4. Moving the waterline away from the lens dramatically improves underwater functionality and image quality. The field of view is increased by over 30%, images are cleaner and the minimal focal distance is improved by nearly 50%. During production, each KSD6 Dome Port is pressure tested to a depth of 135 feet, exceeding the depth rating of the GoPro HERO3+ and HERO4 housings. If you use a GoPro underwater without the KSD6 Dome Port, you are missing out on all that your camera has to offer. If you are in professional production, this is a mandatory addition to your set of tools.
In addition to improved underwater use, the KSD6 makes it possible to capture images both above and below the water simultaneously. These are often referred to as half and half, 50/50, over under or split-level pictures. Until now, one would need to invest thousands of dollars in high-end camera equipment in order to create these images. Even with the best gear producing quality over under results would be a challenge due to the complexity of focus, exposure and depth of field management. The KSD6 paired with the GoPro overcomes all of this.
The KSD6 utilizes a semi-hemispherical acrylic dome that has been custom made just for KNEKT. This dome has been optically matched to work with the GoPro lens. The use of a semi-hemispherical dome eliminates the perpendicular angle between the backing plate and the dome. The benefits of this are the elimination of circular reflection and improved water sheeting while reducing the form factor and maintaining full front face surface area. By utilizing an interlocking two-piece design, the dome is captured mechanically to create an O-ring compression seal -- no glue or silicone is used anywhere. This design allows the dome to be fully disassembled for cleaning and service. If the acrylic is scratched or cracked it can be replaced.
NOTE: The KSD6 can be used as a stand-alone product, it does not require the use of a handle or trigger to function. The KSD6 is also compatible with the KNEKT FPSH Pole, GPLT, GPDL and GP4 trigger systems.
