In Topic: Oly OM-D EM-1 focus stacking

Hi Bob,


The idea would be to use a video light instead of strobes. There is an interesting post on doing this here




The brighter the ambient light and the wider the focal length the harder it gets but for macro the new video lights, not even the most powerful ones, seem to do the job. But if the whole exposure series takes 8 seconds then even a nudibranch may be moving too fast :(




Not to mention the movement of the diver himself/herself.

I'm not sure what shutter setting you would need to accomplish focus-stacking. It could be a problem if you are required to use a 1/60 or slower shutter speed as is required for the 40mb image in the e-m5 II.

Thanks guys, so from what I glean off here, my two best options is just make it work and get the Think Tank on as carryon, or go with a regular roller suitcase and custom cut some foam to fit the housing and ports into it. 


Thanks again for the ideas!

In Topic: HELP!! Olympus OMD EM5 MARK II camera settings

I have the e-m5 not the mark II, but I suspect the menus are somewhat similar. So, to set the flash sync, push the menu button, go to the "gear" on the side, that will get you to the custom settings menus. Look for the lightning bolt, on the m5 is letter "f". Once you click on it, just scroll through the settings till you find the flash sync.
