#385261 complete Olympus E-M5 outfit with ports and strobes

Posted by henkelphoto on 22 June 2017 - 12:54 PM

Hi Guys, 


Circumstances force me to curtail my diving. I've got a complete outfit for the Olympus E-m5 camera. The outfit has been in the ocean for one weeklong dive trip and two day trips along with a couple of freshwater dives. Listed are the components. I also have the factory boxes for most of the items. Because this is an older generation body, I'll throw in the body and factory external battery grip with the outfit. I'd like to sell as a complete outfit rather than splitting up. This will make a great starter for someone wanting to get into underwater photography!


Nauticam NA-EM5 housing

Nauticam ports: 12-50 port with zoom gear and macro gears, 9-18mm semi-dome port with zoom gears, 8mm panasonic dome port. 

Ultralight tray with dual handles, Ultralight 8" and 5" arms, ball connectors, Stix jumbo float kit. 

Sea & Sea YS-01 strobes (2) with fiber optic cables (with one extra cable)

Fix Neo 1000 UW focus light. 


Bluewater photo lists this outfit for somewhere around $5300, not counting the camera. I'll let this go for $2000 shipped. This is a great outfit, all you need to do is add the lenses!

#364765 HELP!! Olympus OMD EM5 MARK II camera settings

Posted by henkelphoto on 28 August 2015 - 12:24 PM

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.

Hello Storker


When I was setting up my kit, I talked with Scott at Bluewater Photo in Los Angeles. He said the difference in the 9-18 and the 8mm is whether you want to get nice snaps from every underwater excursion or do you want to get that one-of-a-kind photo that may make you miss some others. The 9-18 is for the former and the FE is for the latter. Since I just shoot for my own enjoyment and have been shooting uw photos for some three decades I chose the latter and got the 8mm Panny lens. While I haven't been able to get into the water with it as much as I would want, I did have the opportunity to dive Catalina Island in SoCal last month with the camera (e-m5) and the FE. I found the lens to be somewhat limiting, but I did get some nice shots with it. The best being of a Garibaldi who decided to attack the dome port (probably saw a reflection of himself). Here's that photo, something I doubt I could have gotten with the 9-18.
