What is a split shot?
GDOME has developed the worlds first affordable, universal, waterproof dome housing for smartphones and action cameras.
A split shot, also known as a 50/50 shot or over under shot, is a single photo or video that captures both under the water and over the water at the same time.

Introducing the GDome Mobile Dome Port System
ORDER NOW AND WE WILL THROW IN A FREE PRO TOUCH INSERT ($19.99) AND ALUMINIUM THUMB SCREW TIGHTNER ($9.99)
The Pro Touch Insert (PTI) is a brand new addition to the GDome made specifically to be used in conjunction with our GDome Mobile.
This is a patented technology that we import all the way from Korea!
With the PTI, you will be able to use your devices' touch screen, even when the GDome Mobile is fully submerged to its maximum depth rating.
You will no longer have to create a 'bubble' with the GDome membrane when you use the PTI.
The PTI will prevent false touches of your smartphone screen.
As the PTI is an insert, it is as simple as inserting the insert into your GDome mobile (matte side onto the smartphone screen) and seal up the GDome Mobile, taking care to ensure the insert is not interfering with any of the sealing points.

Making a dome housing is one thing. Making it universal so that it works with all leading smartphones across different brands, with different lens configurations is another.
It didn’t stop there, with a rear touch membrane you can operate your phone at the surface of the water.

The First Future Proof Dome System
Your phone changes all the time, the dome system you use shouldn't have to!
Why invest hundreds of dollars in a phone housing that is only compatible with a specific phone model or brand?
By choosing GDome Mobile, you can share your housing with family and friends even if they are using a completely different phone brand.
Installation is as easy as this

Images so good you wouldn't think they were shot through a dome

Finding the solution for improving our already great optics posed a challenge from the get-go. We finally got this right by adding to our unique mix of ingredients to give us the perfected GDome optic lens. This V1 dome lens has been successfully used on all of our PDS systems to date. With the release of GDome Mobile we took this mix and improved on its makeup. The new V2 lens will go to the market with each unit. The new V2 lens will be implemented across our existing range as soon as we start shipping.
With our open lens design, you can get the perfect portrait shot (focused subject & blurred background)
Go Live on Social Media with GDome Mobile
Go live on your favourite social platform while capturing amazing split-shots!
As long as a portion of the GDome remains out of the water, you will be able to share some incredible footage directly to your friends, family, and followers.
With our open lens design, the sky is the limit!
Use wide-angle lenses, ND filters, CPL filters and more. Filters are an awesome accessory allowing you the freedom to get creative. Adjust the light hitting your camera lens by using a wide range of different lenses and filters. Filters allow you to capture wider apertures for greater depth or adjust shutter speeds for time-based effects. Capture twice the image with wide-angle lenses while the image remains crisp & straight with no fisheye distortion.
Watch this video if you want to learn more about external filters and their benefits.
The intention of the GDome Mobile is to be as user-friendly as possible. With a built-in handgrip support, the GDome Mobile is very easy to use and feels extremely comfortable in hand. We have made it modular so you can easily add extra items to take the standard setup into a professional rig. Start building yours today!
While the GDome Mobile works with action cameras, we tested it with the GoPro Hero 8 / 7 / 6 / 5 Black, Silver and White as well as the DJI Osmo Action and managed to get some awesome shots.
Easy to use
Once the phone has been placed in position and the backplate secured it’s as easy as point, touch and capture.

For absolute peace of mind
We guarantee all of our products and our reviews stand testament to this. All units are hand-assembled, pressure tested and have to pass our quality control measures. We manufacture all of our products in house to ensure the best care is taken right from raw material inspection to final product testing.
The GDome Mobile is a waterproof housing made to be used on the surface of the water. Although we have dived to 30ft plus with the GDome Mobile, this was purely for testing purposes regardless of the fact it did not leak or damage the phones.
The use of the touch membrane was not designed with great depths in mind.
The GDome Mobile was designed with the intention of being a surface waterproof housing for depths that are not deeper than 5ms or 15ft.
