The Kraken Sports KRL-09S Wide Angle Conversion Lens is an ultra-wide angle wet lens that has been designed to be used with a 60mm macro lens. It converts a 39° macro field of view to a 154° fisheye, wide angle field of view. The KRL-09S threads directly into your 67mm flat port. This gives you the flexibility to shoot macro and wide angle all during one dive! The Kraken wide angle conversion lens has a built-in buoyancy collar which makes it very lightweight underwater,with a weight of only 212g. We find the trim to be very nice and even underwater. The dome of the lens is made from a high grade and durable polycarbonate material. It is optically very sharp, but durable. If it does get scratched, it can be buffed out.

The Kraken KRL-09S is the perfect lens to be used with a flip adapter. A flip adapter allows you to flip the lens onto your port in one quick, 2 second motion without screwing anything in. If you get a double flip adapter, you will be able to screw an additional diopter on the other thread, allowing you to shoot wide angle, macro, and super macro on in the same dive!
In our tests we've found that the Nauticam single flip adapter, Naticam double flip adapter, Nauticam MWL Flip adapter, and Nauticam MWL double flip adapter have the best compatibility with this lens. The MWL versions of the flip adapter have an additional piece (a metal circle with screw holes) that does not need to be used with the Kraken KRL09s. The Saga single flip adapter and the Saga double flip adatper are moderately compatible with the lens. You can screw the lens in most of the way. However, there is a metal bump on the saga adapter that touches the buoyancy color on the lens. In order to get the lens all the way flush, you will need to shave the metal piece off the saga adapter with a dremel. It will not harm the adapter. Even if you choose not to shave off the piece, the lens works with the saga adapter and it is secure - it just doesn't completely screw in without modification.
