Hi Watershot.

SO: Hi Jordan

I have an iPhone 7 and wish to buy the Watershot® PRO Line Housing iPhone®7 Black/Sunfish - Sunfish. Will i be able to take "dome" photos half in/out of the water with this camera or will i need an extension because the Super Dome is not compatible with iPhone 7. otherwise, will the Watershot® 0.37X Wide-Angle Lens Port be able to create this photo on the Watershot® PRO Line Housing iPhone®7 sorry for the confusion.

SO: It is confusing and as a result of your thoughtful email we have updated the Watershot® 0.37X Wide-Angle Lens Port & Super Dome Lens Port information on the Watershot website to clear up the confusion.

SO: The Camera Lens on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has a greater FOV (Field Of View) both horizontally and vertically than any other previous iPhone camera lens. The Super Dome currently available  https://watershot-inc.myshopify.com/admin/products/1623357891 will cause vignette (small dark areas) in the 4 corners of the picture.  We have new Wide Angle Lens Elements that we are currently building into the new Wide Angle Lens Port and Super Dome Lens Port for Watershot PRO iP7 and Watershot PRO iP7 Plus to accommodate the wider FOV.

SO: The Watershot® 0.37X Wide-Angle Lens Port https://watershot-inc.myshopify.com/admin/products/1623351683 will not be able to create the half in/half out effect by itself.  You must use the Super Dome to create the half in / half out effect. The current Wide Angle Lens Port will also cause vignette (small dark areas) in the 4 corners of the picture.

SO: The new Wide Angle Lens Port and Super Dome Lens Port for Watershot PRO iP7 and Watershot PRO iP7 Plus should become available ~ 25 June, 2017.

thanks for your help.

SO: Our Pleasure
