The WA-100-EP is constructed from hand crafted materials with an optically coated BK7 crystal glass dome at its core. The surface of the dome element is coated with a magnesium fluoride broadband anti-reflective coating to minimize internal reflections from camera lenses, lettering on cameras, etc. which can be a problem in a bright ambient light situation. The exterior is treated with a proprietary scratch resistant coating to control lens flare. This coating yields an amazing 99.7%+ transmissive value for true distortion free images.
Offers a distortion free 100° wide angle field of view when used with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm f/4-f/5.6 lens. This is a 25% increase in FOV over the standard Olympus flat port
The heavy duty aluminum shade is designed to offer a lifetime of service and extends far enough to protect the dome when placed face down.
