Can you please tell me what factors led you to choose the Nauticam housing over the Olympus for the TG5? I also have an EM5II that will have a nauticam housing so is there any advantage to keeping both the same? Are there any wet mount lenses that I might use on the EM5II rig that I could also use with the TG5 or is that really not something worth considering. It sounds like many people that have a larger Oly set up enjoy the TG5 as a more travel friendly option so I would love to hear feedback on what advantages there are to choosing one housing/port/etc. over another.
HIi, I ended purchasing a TG-5, my main housing is for an OMD 1 MK2. Thought it would be fun using and it is great for macro.
My first thought was getting the Olympus housing since its inexpensive, camera is waterproof so not much worries about leaking etc. After thinking about it, decided to go with Nauticam. Happy with the set up.
Regarding ports, won't need any. For WA add a wet lens with 52mm, either one which will increase the coverage or just restores the 24mm native angle of view.
As someone mentioned above, the only downside is the inability to shoot one manual but not a deal breaker. .... if getting strobes, the Inon S2000 work well, they are small and TTL works.
Probably a little of both video and pics. I was thinking of adding the Kraken KRL-2 52mm Wide Wet Lens dome. This is one of the questions I have is whether the Kraken is best option or if people have used other similar models and prefer them for some reason.
