#320845 Olympus OM-D E-M5

I could get my Nauticam housing wet during last week while squeezing in some dives in Egypt (only land based house reef diving). It was kind of rough as I'd only used a P&S camera in full auto mode underwater before (no strobe(s)) and went to full manual with my OM-D setup with a (single) S-2000 as external strobe in manual mode too. To make things worse for me, the fisheye lens as well as the 60 macro had not been delivered before my trip so I had to use my 12mm prime lens behind the 4.3" dome exclusively for the six dives I did while being there. A macro lens would have been awesome for fish portraits down there but, oh well, next time...
Still, given my lack of experience with full manual mode and external strobes as well as being stuck with the Olympus 12/2 prime for all six dives, I am really pleased with the setup. I can definately see the potential that this setup can deliver. I am very happy with my purchase Posted Image
