Works Great with these Camera / Housing Combinations and is the best option in our opinion:
It offers 165 degrees field of view in a well made, sharp lens through the corners.
This lens does not include an adapter, please let us know which camera / housing you are planning to use it with so we can make sure you have the correct pieces for attaching it to that housing.

The UWL-04 is an awesome lens!!! I used it recently in Cayman Brac together with a Sony RX 100-2 and a Recsea housing. No vignette at full wide 28 mm equivalent, very sharp and really wide… and you can go extremely close to subject.
Its big dome is also suitable for half under-over shootings and I could get some nice CFWA as well.
It was hard to decide between this lens and the WA-110 which I think is another great option specially to place a red filter on it (as it has a flat lens) to correct the awful white balance of this camera for underwater video shooting.
It is relatively big but light (positive) underwater.
Thank Scott and Vijay for all your advice regarding this setup. I am very pleased with it!!!
I was unsure of what kind of wide angle lens to buy, I was leaning towards a rectilinear lens, when Scott recommended this fisheye lens. I decided to go with his recommendation after doing some research online where most people were recommending the same as he was and I am very happy I did.
I never would have believed that an adapter that converts 28mm equivalent to a 165 degree fisheye could be this good.
Of course there can be a little bit of softness in the edges, but you have to remember what this lens is doing - it is distorting the image to a wider view before the image hits the lens. This product controls edge sharpness very well, especially considering the wide field of view. In fact, it controls it beyond what I would have expected. Center sharpness is very good, and there is no reason you can't use this lens and expect great results.
Construction is very solid, the materials are all very high quality, and it has a distinctly solid feel.
You can get really close to your subjects with short focus distances, making it a very flexible tool for experimenting with different compositions.
Highly recommend this product, I only leave mine at home if visibility is bad, otherwise, it is on my camera.
I've always loved the wide angle lens. My first dive with this lens didn't go well. All photos came with vignette and water mark in the middle. After reading the manual, I adjusted the lens hood and everything was perfect. If I have to find something to criticise, it would be the tool that is not included in the package which I have to purchase separately from the local hardware shop. To me this is the must have lens.
I bought this lens for use with my Sea & Sea DX-2G and could not be happier with my purchase. I read online how to make an adapter for the lens to fit the DX-2G and it was easy and very effective. My first dive was a shark dive in Nassau and the pictures I got were fantastic. The angles and perspectives captured were not even close to possible before I had this lens. In addition, Scott & the Bluewater Photo staff was quick to answer any questions I had about making the DX-2G adapter and were sure to follow up with me to make sure everything was ok with my purchase. I highly recommend this lens for the wide angle shots you always wanted to get.
This lens offers great clarity. I like the quick adapter with the RecSea housing making it quick and secure to change the lens underwater. This ability is why I stay with a compact for now. You do need to use one click zoom in to avoid the vignetting and have to make it a habit to remember that. It is a heavy lens so I also recommend a leash to attach it to the tray or arm when you remove it from the holder. Nice lens.
This lens is clear and has great coverage. It is a little heavy, some vignetting when zoomed all the way out, and you have to be careful with that curved front element. But those are all minor quibbles. Overall, this is a great fish eye lens. I recommend it.
