    Best Wide-Angle Wet Lens

    Ikelite need a type 1 mount to get the lens deeper and then it will not vignette
    Nauticam uses a type 2 mount as the lens is closer
    It will be not practical to interchange those in a trip as you need to remove screws but you can buy the alternative mount so you are covered for both

    but i use the type 2 with the ikelite s100 and it just abit vignette... the ikelite W-20 is like the type 1 but it design for 35mm...
    i think i'll stay with the type2 coz mybe i'll change my ikelite s100 to the original s100 with the inon adapter...
    i had the chance to test the cannon housing in Papua New Guinea and its a great housing.. so i think the type2 is fit to the canon housing too..

    If you use type 2 for ikelite you get vignetting, if you use type one you don't so if you are bothered about vignetting you need to use type 1
    If you don't want to change as you go along you will keep the vignette, you can't use type 1 with non ikelite as it will not allow you to screw on (nauticam won't)

    You mean on the lenses? The Inon Dome requires mounting with o ring and screws is not removable afterwards and forms an integral part of the lens
