3D Printed GoPro Dome Port: SWG-Dome

Here’s some exciting GoPro Dome news for you, I’ve had a lot of questions about the best value way to get a GoPro Dome port and now Jakob Wittmann, with the help of Noel Galvez and Christian Salgado, designers on shapeways.com, presents a 3D printed back plate for various sizes of dome..

The SWG-Dome is compatible with the Hero 4 style housing (which fits the Hero 3, 3+ and 4 range of cameras), has controls for on/off and can be used with a handle like the GoPole Bobber.

 

The system is called SWG-Dome, it stands for Sub Water Gadget, here are a couple of links for more information:

And here’s an un-boxing video from Jakob, there should be more to come, I’ve seen some example shots and some close-ups of the dome being put together already and it looks like a really promising option for budget conscious GoPro users who want to capture an over/under style of shot.
