In Topic: OM-D E-M5 II stabilization improvement significant?

23 February 2015 - 02:56 AM

Probably I will upgrade to E-M5 Mark II  from E-M5. The reason are:

1. Better EVF like in  E-M1

2. Much better video mode in which I see advantage of new I.S..

I'm waiting for Nauticam propose of new housing. Olympus housing seems to be too high due to new flash.

 

E-M1 with housing was too big for me and video mode was as poor as in E-M5.

I do not see any reason to upgrade from E-M1 for someone who does not make video.


In Topic: Complete port chart for Olympus & nauticam housings for micro four thirds...

I have found the charts  very useful.

However I see some issues.

1.

For these sets:

Panasonic Lumix G Fisheye 8mm f3.5 4.33" dome 36132 *21 Olympus M. Zuiko 12mm F2.0 4.33" dome 36132 *21

 

is not required :

*21 requires extension, 36630 Mini extension port 30

 

2.

For lens  Olympus M. Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ  I use alternate Nauticam port

Macro port 65 - 36163*7  with Austrian D&D zoom ring

Interesting to hear the 6" dome doesn't fit! (is it too tall?) I was tempted by one of the ThinkTank cases.. maybe not then.

 

Sorry for misunderstanding. Maybe it fits but not with this my current setup. The case is full.

The total  weight is about 10kg.

 

I encountered two times in Alicante in Spain with Ryanair during boarding that rude staff check very precisely dimension and weight. No mercy with Ryanair ;-)
