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

Yesterday, 03:51 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.

How about the comprehensive guide posted by coroander here a while back? Even if the menu structure is different it ought to be possible to map these settings across to the new structure.

(I can't get the UW Photo Guide page to load for some reasons so I don't know if provides a different approach)


In Topic: storing fins between trips

20 August 2015 - 05:43 AM

I have the same fins, but to be honest, have never given "proper" storage a thought.  Sometimes they are in the gear bag in storage for weeks, some times flat on the floor somewhere, sometimes leaning against a wall.  It really doesn't seem to matter! They have not deformed in any way, still go on easily, and propel me through the water which is all i care about.


In Topic: Ideas/suggestions for Olympus E-PL3/PT-EP05L

18 August 2015 - 05:46 PM

I started with an E-PL1, 14-42 lens, and the Olympus macro wet lens.  To be honest, I never got good macro results with it as the wet lens did not seem to offer much more magnification.  May have been operator skill though . . . 

 

Regarding the lighting, you might be somewhat limited shooting macro with video lights, as it will be difficult to use small apertures for better depth of field. But certainly worth a try!

 

 

Has anyone actually had success with add on WA lens on m4/3?

 

It seems that Nauticam is working on a new lens - not sure when it might be available:

In that case, the only thing that isn't a permanent part of my housing is the Vivid SS vacuum sensor, but I never take it off anyway.
