The WACP-1 has set the standard for what is possible when cutting-edge lens design is applied to underwater imaging, delivering an ultra-sharp 130º field-of-view close-focus low-distortion corrective optic.  While the WACP-1 was designed to work primarily with 28mm equivalent lenses, the WACP-2 is optimized to work with 14mm lenses to produce an unparalleled 140º field-of-view while maintaining full zoom-through optical capability.

Introducing 0.8x Wide Angle Conversion Port 2 (WACP-2)

The WACP-2 is also able to focus in air, making it an even more capable imaging tool adding the ability to capture over-under images and even filming topside in wet environments.  WACP-2 maintains the exceptional close-focus characteristics of the WACP-1.

The WACP-2's zoom-through capabilities means the underwater filmmaker or photographer can capture establishing, medium and close-up shots all with one lens while maintaining optimum optical and close-focus performance.  Take for instance the Nikkor Z 14-30mm F/4 S lens which receives a field-of-view range of 81º to 140º with the WACP-2.  This lens allows for acquisition of more dynamic content on each and every dive without the need for a second camera.

A radical new shade design allows for extending the shade out past the front element at longer focal lengths or during transport to further protect the dome while at wider focal lengths it retracts to prevent vignette.

The WACP-2 is sure to be the uncompromising underwater image maker's tool of choice when looking for maximum optical quality, flexibility and performance.
