Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The Aquatica Low Profile Macro Port has a shorter, much smaller length than the other flat ports and was designed to take full advantage of the much more compact macro lenses available from some manufacturers. The port can also be combined with a variety of extension rings to accommodate longer lenses, including lenses with close up lenses, teleconverters or extension tubes.
The flat lens is made of BK-7 material, finely polished and coated with a superior Silicon Oxide coating (SiO2) on the external surface. This coating is not only a more resistant type of coating but has a 0.01% reflective index, improving light transmission. Additionally this SiO2 coating is a perfect match to the index of water, which naturally reduces reflections.
The main difference of this port from the AF/MF port, aside from being lighter and narrower, is that it doesn’t have the side mounted knob that can be connected to a focus gear. Since it is dedicated to compact macro lenses, in most the manual focusing can be accessed via a gear connected to the left hand focus/zoom control knob of the housing, like its bigger sibling the 18428, this low profile flat port is designed for general purpose macro work, and it should fulfill all the needs of the dedicated photographer.
