FS (ebay auction/NR): Inon UCL-165AD Close-up Lens + Inon AD Lens Holder

17 December 2012 - 11:07 AM

Selling because my new housing doesn't use the AD Bayonet mount and I already have a new close-up lens.

UK bidders only, I'm afraid.



Any advice? Diving with EPL3 and PT-EP05L, 14-42mm and UCL-165 wet macro lens

26 September 2012 - 10:01 AM

Hi all
I'm looking for any tips, experiences, whatever useful info may be available and is now hidden in peoples' heads :)

I am taking my new u/w photography gear on a diving holiday to El Quseir for a week, flying out on Friday. It's an Olympus EPL3 camera & PT-EP05L housing. For now I will be using the EPL3 kit lens (14-42mm). Also I bought the UCL-165 M67 macro lens. I realise that it's a little basic but it's all I can afford for now. I will also be using my Inon Z240 type 3 flashgun (generally on Manual mode)

Would love to hear from anybody else who is using the same system and whether they have any useful tips, observations, things that don't work?, what kind of subjects it's good for etc etc.

I do a lot of land-photography with off-camera flash and now that I'm finally using something that isn't a point and shoot compact, I'd like to get as good results as I can within my gear's limitations.

Anyway, any tips you can give me would be much appreciated.



Can I stack UCL-165 M67 with UCL-165AD using 10Bar Inon AD To M67 Mount Adapter?

27 August 2012 - 12:20 PM

Hi all
I've recently upgraded my u/w kit to the Olympus EPL3 camera & PT-EP05L housing. For now I will be using the EPL3 kit lens (14-42mm). Also I bought the UCL-165 M67 macro lens. From my old Olympus compact camera u/w setup I still have the UCL-165AD macro lens.

There is an adapter "10 Bar Inon AD To M67 Mount Adapter" which can be used to "attach the lens to a standard 67mm threaded lens port on a housing". Can it also be used to stack a UCL-165AD with a UCL-165 M67 lens?

ie I would have : PT-EP05L housing --> UCL-165 M67 --> 10BAR adapter-->UCL 165AD

Has anybody tried this and if it works, are the results any good?

If this doesn't work I can sell the UCL-165AD on ebay :)

Olympus SP350 kit for sale (offers please)

18 January 2012 - 12:03 AM

Hi all
I want to sell my Olympus SP350 cameras and accessories to move onto something more modern.

Note that I no longer have the original boxes/software or cables. This would be a very good purchase for an existing owner of Olympus SP350 who was spare cameras.

The kit includes
2 x Olympus SP350 cameras (perfectly functioning, some cosmetic wear and tear)
Third party charger and various Li-On batteries
2 x Olympus PT30 housings - FOR SPARE PARTS only, I don't know if they are safe to dive with because the shutter button on the housing is sticky
Any other cables and manuals I can find.
Assorted XD Cards, O-rings etc.

If anybody wants to make an offer, please email me at davidkittos@hotmail.com

I will ONLY accept payment via paypal before I ship the kit and I prefer to deal with a UK buyer if possible.
No money orders, cheques, cash etc etc

Otherwise I will need to take my chances on ebay :D
