In Topic: Free Olympus E-M1 V.2 Firmware Update - Try New Creative Underwater Technique...

All of the ART FILTER options could be done in post processing and yes you get an original RAW file and the effect is a full size Jpeg.

The difference in doing it in camera is that with an EVF or on the LCD you get to see the filter effect in real time. This makes a difference in your creative ability. To me anything that can be done in camera is a plus, more time diving less time in front of the computer.

I think the new selective color is great fun and will work easily in an underwater setting. just select in the art filters and when you use it a color wheel appears in the EVF roll the front or rear dial to move around the color wheel and shoot very easy. Shot these at south beach last week.


In Topic: Port available for the Olympus 12-40?

26 September 2014 - 09:21 AM

This new link should work for you using the AD/PTE port adapter. All of the ports use the Older Olympus threaded style designed for 4/3 lenses. I would suggest the same configuration as they show for the Panasonic 7-14mm zoom. You will need to mount the lens to the camera from the front for it to fit and then put the port over the lens. The Olympus 170mm port is the same design so either port could be used. Inon also has ports for the old style threaded Olympus mount.

 

Good luck...

The Athena port chart is for E-M1 and E-M5 Olympus housings not PEN housings and Aquatica only makes one M43 housing and that is for the E-M1.

 

Even with the Nauticam housing I need to install the lens onto the camera from the front after the camera is mounted in the housing.

 

You may want to read my review of the ZEN Underwater 170mm port for 12-40mm zoom in the current issue of UWPMAG.com this is a free PDF download until the Nov. 1 issue posts.


In Topic: New Nauticam 140mm glass fisheye dome port coming?

I use a Zen 100mm port with the Panasonic 8mm fisheye and the Nauticam NA-EM1 housing. Great lens and the 100mm allows you to get very close. I have also used the same 100mm port for the Olympus 12mm F/2 and 17mm F/1.8 with success, I would expect to see other small lenses like the Panasonic 14mm and more work as well. In a port 40mm larger all of these lenses should work just as well I would think.
