This is our new V3.0 Entry Level GDome Dome Housing for the GoPro Hero 7 | 6 | 5 Black Naked (no housing required)
Unlike the Naked PDS, this model does not have a front viewing window, you still have full access to the rear screen and all buttons on the Hero 5 | 6 | 7 Black.
The PDS (Professional Dome System) has been close to two years in the making, we have added all the features needed to create an unrivalled Dome System that is affordable and easy to use, while offering industry leading optics.
With this Dome Housing, getting the elusive under overshot also known as 50/50 or split shot has never been easier.
The GDome Housing uses a 160mm Dome, this massive dome pushes the waterline away from the lens, creating a space that allows you to capture the split in the water line with unbelievable ease.
Using your GoPro’s near infinite depth of field and wide-angle lens make getting high quality video and stills remarkably easy to get versus $2000 DSLR setups that face the complexity of accounting for depth of field, focus and exposure.
This spacing also improves water shots above the water as spray or drops that would have covered most of the lens (ruining the shot or video) are now just a small dot in the field of view. As the gap between lens and dome moves water particles further away from the camera lens, meaning that underwater images become cleaner and the field of view is drastically improved.
The GDome system uses unique O-Ring compression seals (between Dome and BackPlate & Around the side of the camera lens) no silicone or glue is used to create a seal.
We pressure test every single Dome to the relevant housings / cameras max depth before they leave the factory, this means that you know the dome you receive will not leak!
Now you can enjoy sharper, cleaner GoPro images at depths that other domes can’t even dream of!
As the PDS is made up of completely detachable parts, you can easily service as well as buy spares and even upgrade your dome Housing.
