NEW KNEKT KSD6 DOME PORT
For Immediate Release
January 6, 2015
Kenko Tokina USA, Inc. is pleased to announce the new the KNEKT KSD6 6” dome port for use with KNEKT Triggers and GroPro cameras. This port is one of the most advanced accessories available for the GoPro. Moving the waterline away from the lens 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.
The simplicity of operation, nearly infinite depth of field, wide-angle lens and video and still image quality make the GoPro perfectly suited for over-under photography. Just slide the KSD6 Dome Port onto the GoPro housing, turn the camera on and produce stunning imagery.
The KSD6 utilizes a custom made semi-hemispherical acrylic dome that 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.
The KSD6 works with the Hero3+ or Hero4 housing and does not require any special modifications or separate accessories. The GoPro is just as secure as always since the KSD6 slips right onto the housing, it does not alter the depth rating of the GoPro housing. The KSD6 provides access to mode, power and shutter control buttons while installed. The built in front LCD window allows the user to see battery life, camera settings and memory card data.
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 compatible with the KNEKT FPSH Pole, GPLT, GPDL and GP4 trigger systems.
