Without it putting the waterline over the middle of the photo is virtually impossible.
Dome photography can be expensive and quite hard for a beginner, so the inventive staff at SplitGadgets decided to make their own affordable dome housing that will help people shoot cool over-under water photos. The Split Dome Port is a housing for a GoPro cameras that makes taking split photos a breeze. GoPro with its wide-angle lens and a Split dome port are a perfect combination that turn over under photography into something everyone can do and afford.
