Dear all.

 

I published a gallery of wide angle and some topside shots I took using the Olympus OMD EM5 (Nauticam housing).

Pictures are a mixed bag taken with the 8mm using the 4,33" Dome and 7-14mm using a 170mm Inon Dome with D&D 50mm MIL to Inon Adapter.

Comments or recommendations are welcome.

 

Kind regards.

Lovely pictures!

Did you use S2000 strobes ? If yes, they cover pretty well.

 

Regards!

I did use the 2 S2000 I have.

Using the 8mm lens you can (and have to) get damn close so even the relatively "weak" S2000 are suitable for lighting.

Unfortunately I just had 2 8 Inch arms with 2 Jumbo Stix each while diving Komodo.

This had been way to short for the 8mm fisheye lens so I got issues with backscatter at the sides - even when pulling back and outwards the srobes.

Meanwhile I have extended the setup by 2 Nauticam float arms 90x150mm making the rig perfectly boyant in combination with the 45° viewfinder.

Wow, they are great shots. I am looking at getting the OMD EM10 with Nauticam housing & that has really helped me in my decision.

Great photos.

Wow, beautiful.

 

Have you cropped because you said 8mm Fisheye used?

 

Very Nice and thanks for sharing

Some shots had been slightly (Maybe 10%) cropped to get rid of backscatter by flashes on the sides (With the 8mm FE you REALLY have to pull back the flashes!!). Most pics are uncropped.
