Some more pics of the adapter in situ...


First the 50mm macro snout! You can see the control knob is nicely placed.



The adapter is the correct length to allow full extension (close focus) of this lens.



The gearing works correctly to allow manual focus but with the 50mm only allows fine adjustment since the oly gear has end stops.

Fine for photos since AF can do most of the work but I shall need to come up with a custom gear for video.

(n.b. it takes several full rotations to focus the 50mm infinity to close - and it is velocity sensitive too but you don't get much speed up on the knob)



On with the dome - it actually goes on a few more mm than this pic shows and closes up the gap you see here.

But then you have to re-adjust the petals and I couldn't be bothered for this little shoot



From above



The lovely 8mm sitting where it should



Now the 11-22mm with "customised" (draught excluder) gear from a 7-14mm.

A bit tricky to assemble as the knob has to stay in it's pulled out position.

But it all works as it shold which means the even larger 7-14mm would fit in this rig too.



With dome and per-02 extender. 

I do not think this is at the nodal point at all and need to get a per-01 instead.

However there is no vignetting from the dome so it is worth testing in the water.



And finally the lovely leak light showing I am leak free

Yes they do Karen, however the base of the ball also has the screw threads that the upper support bracket (silver metal in the pictures) attach to. With out this the handles are not as stable - it's not that bad though about 5mm flex if you push, I would be happy to use. So may want to ask Nauticam if there is an alternative top piece for the handles. The screw thread is large M8 I think but don't quote me on that.

Look what's arrived (thanks Alex)




Of course I still need a crucial part!




The 43 adapter is on the way...


Trying to work out a good button mapping or two. Luckily the EM-1 supports 4 "My Sets" (preset configs) so should be able to get the camera quickly into the correct setup for different styles of shooting. Any more tips on good workable button mappings much appreciated - I like Phil's tip to put focus on the AEL lever.

Hi Edward,

As the EM-1 supports 43 glass is there a chance that Nauticam will make the housing compatible with Olympus ports?

I have the zuiko 8mm, 11-22mm and 50mm plus the Olympus ports/dome to suit them all. I have held out for the EM-1 so I can continue to use these lenses. At present I will have to go with the Olympus PT- EP11 case. Love to have the choice to go Nuaticam whilst using my Olympus 43 ports.
