#350858 Olympus E-PM1 setup (camera, housing, 9-18, 14-42)

Posted by gsk3 on 27 July 2014 - 04:38 AM

All equipment is in pristine condition unless otherwise noted.
Olympus E-PM1 + flash in its velvet case + charger (3rd party) + battery
Olympus PT-EP06 (housing + flash mask + several silica gel packets)
Olympus 9-18mm (m4/3 version)
Olympus 14-42 II
Does not include a zoom ring if you want to zoom (I typically just set it to the widest setting anyway so not an issue for me).  Costs about $30: http://www.amazon.co...0313595-1326039
This setup (with the 9-18) was used recently to film this (unfortunately it's 720i due to my messing up some settings, and compressed due to YouTube; the camera is capable of even better quality):
Other than that, it's only been in the water a few times as my diving has been pretty limited over the past year since I bought it.
$925 includes shipping to CONUS and PayPal or Amazon fees. International shipping extra.
Perfect feedback as linuxizer under beerology or heatware.

#349972 Diving Catalina, a couple of questions

Posted by gsk3 on 07 July 2014 - 04:48 PM

You'll likely be fine on the Express.  Have never had a problem being slightly over, and half the boat is divers.  That said, it's been a few years since I did it last (tend to take boats out of Long Beach these days to hit the islands).


As I recall, the hand truck was a schlep but there were plenty of them.  Golf cart seemed convenient as I was pulling a few hundred pounds in a cart in the hot sun, but probably good for my heart :-)


Enjoy, it's a beautiful location.


Check out the LAUE Ghost Fishing Project's footage of their cleanup of the Infidel if you want to see what it looks like at 150' just a (long) stone's throw from the casino at Avalon.

Just want to say that these are fabulous first attempts at UW shooting.  Even with topside photo experience most don't get this good in their first few dives with a camera.
