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

Yesterday, 03:56 PM

Thanks for posting these Jack, its a very handy reference.

There's one change not yet captured in most descriptions I've read. Selection of the small focus point is now much easier with the firmware update. From the SCP, select focus options, press INFO, then up/down arrows to change.

By the way, the original post was spot on about thr Olympus menus, they are indeed a maze.

 

Glad they helped. You get used to the menu layouts after a while, they do offer an amazing amount of adjustment and fine-tuning. But items are sort of hidden or not where yo expect them to be...

We edited Corrander's excellent post (with his permission) and added a bit to it, as well wrote a similar set-up article on the E-M1. They are going to be similar to your camera.

 

They are available free in our Education Resource Center:

Yeah, that's been going on for a while, but it's silly - you send your housing in and they have to make the change.

They started doing it on the E-PL7 housing; replacing the short port for the longer version. But I don't think it's applicable to the PT-013 series as the dome for the 8mm is larger; it won't fit without an adapter.

I read your review and you shot this with the Olympus 100mm dome
What's the cost of the new PT-EP13 housing with the dome and extension compared to nauticam or zen options?

 

The Olympus dome is $899, but will not fit the PT-013 for the E-M5 MKII. At this time, I don't think there is an adapter as I noted in my blog article. Whether Zen will make an adaptor is unclear, but because the Olympus dome uses a larger port diameter opening, I don't think it will work to go the other way to the older size that the E-M5 MKII uses. But this is all in a bit of flux.

 

Suffice to say Nauticam, Aquatica, Subal and others are more expensive, but you have many more options for ports.

Brian, yes Zen has port solutions. Nauticam just updated their port chart for the 8mm FE to use the #36132 Mini dome and #36620 20mm extenstion.
