In Topic: Underwater settings for the Olympus OM-D E-M5

29 November 2013 - 06:20 AM

Hi all.. I have a couple of questions regarding the use of the Inon Z240's with the Nauticam / OM-D EM-5

 

1)   "advance cancel circuit switch".  Should that be in the up or down position when using optical fibre connection?

 

2)    what is the purpose of the +1/4 EV compensation switch on the front?

 

I've learnt one thing…. "there is never a dumb question… it only becomes dumb when you don't ask…"  :unsure:  :dunno:

 

Thanks for your patience - Karen

 

 

1) the cancel circuit switch is only active with electrical connection. No influence on optical connection.

 

2) The +1/4 is use in strobe on manual setting to slightly increase  brightness in the resulting photo.

 

I use 2 Z240 with my OMD  they work great!!

You can also use the custom fit leak sentinel from Vividhousing:
http://www.vividhous...ak-sentinel.php
 
I got good email exchanges with the maker, and it's a tiny smart system that provides LED feedback.
Also, he gave me shots of it attached to the Nauticam OM-D housing. All this for only 200 EUR (rated to 60m depth).
 
Question is: will the Nauticam solution bring something much better?


I got the Leak sentinel. The pictures you got from Vividhousing are probably from my rig.

I just love seing that little blinking green led. Knowing that my OMD is safe:). Hearing the seal pop when you open the rear door of the housing is also reasuring.

I'm going to the olympic stadium pool in Montreal (60' deep) next friday to test everything out. But so far so good.

I just order a modified leak sentinel for the omd nauticam housing. I will do a review once I get it (10 days). Hugues
