I bought the dome port to try some of those fancy over under shots. You can see the port that came with the housing. That’s a boogie board leash. Just in case.

Do you need that fish eye thing ?the housing just comes with a flat one , right?
And is the pistol grip detachable?
Can you shoot the normal way ?

the house ing come with a flat port. The fish Is for doing over under shots as well as using Fisheye lens. for getting those in the Tube Shots. Haven’t had much luck with shooting in the Tube. Use the flat ports with 18 to 50mm kit lens You will get some really nice results with that.
Have not been in the water very much this year due to some health issues.
been working out to get back I. Shape.

ok, so thanks to the great help of Artz, I finally pulled the trigger and got the sony a 6000, and then ordered the seafrog salted line housing.
I hope this rig will increase my creativity on the water
yes, a spicy combo
Walnuts was on the spot, 1 k for both.
I saw a cheaper version for the housing on Amazon, but is not the same as the one from the official web page from seafrog

But the options were to get an Olympus TG 6 point and shoot for $400
or a housing for a more advance camera, a big bulky DSLR, in which case the housing alone is 1500 the cheapest
so
that's it, we 'll see how I do

The less expensive versions are more for Snorklers scuba divers shooting underwater. they would be ok. But look at some videos with Photogaphers right in the wave. They can duck while still the grip makes that possible. the grip allows you to hold the camera and pull the trigger while toy can swim with your free hand.
