Topics I've Started

FS: Olympus OMD-EM5, Nauticam housing, tray, handles and extras!

24 April 2018 - 11:49 AM



Selling my excellent condition OMD-EM5 and Nauticam housing. 


Camera includes extra EM5 battery (total of two), flash, manual, various cables and covers, original box.

Body has just over 10k shutter actuations so plenty of life left 

Excellent condition save for the fingerprints, never have had an issue, selling only due to upgrade


Housing has audible leak detector, thankfully have never needed as it has never flooded, original box, o-ring removal tool.

Extras include rope handle, brand new shutter release extension which makes shooting a LOT easier, especially with dry gloves, tray and left/right handles.


This is a great first step upgrade from point and shoot cameras.  I was able to get all of this, three ports, lenses and arms in a carry on backpack for travel.  All you need to add is a lens and port and you're ready to go!


No lenses, ports or arms included.


$745 shipped to the US.  Willing to ship elsewhere but buyer will need to pay addl shipping.











Contact me with any questions or offers.





SKB iSeries 2011-7 case w/Think Tank dividers & lid organizer

23 March 2018 - 03:10 PM

Selling a brand new, never used SKB 2011-7 case w/ Think Tank designed photo dividers and lid organizer.  My backpack photo case is falling apart and I had hoped this would accommodate all my stuff but unfortunately it doesn't.  I opened it and began to try and fit my gear in there and I just have too much.  It is fantastic, extremely well built and laid out.


From the SKB site:



SKB has teamed up with Think Tank Photo—the premier photo/video bag and backpack company—to design quality interiors that provide photographers and videographers with the best of both worlds: soft case adaptability with the unparalleled strength and durability people expect from SKB's versatile watertight, airline-tough cases.

The 3i-2011-7DL is an airline carry-on approved size, watertight and dustproof, and features a deluxe Nylex-wrapped closed cell fitted foam liner and (10) nylon dividers with heavy duty hook-and-loop tabs to create the perfect fit. Also included in this case is an adhesive-backed hook-and-loop attached lid organizer with laminated clear mesh pockets and a polyester-lined iPad/laptop top-load pocket.


Interior Length:
19.50 in (49.53 cm)
Interior Width:
10.50 in (26.67 cm)
Interior Depth:
5.00 in (12.70 cm)


More details:




These sell for $230 shipped via Adorama, B&H, etc.  Will sell for $210 shipped, if you're looking for one of these save yourself $20 :)  Paypal is OK.  US shipping only.







Oly OM-D EM5 upgrade path - what's the logical next move?

20 March 2018 - 08:55 AM

As title states, currently shooting EM5 in a Nauticam housing.  Have 8mm fisheye, 60mm macro, 12-40mm pro with nauticam/zen ports, a pair of Inon Z240 strobes, a pair of Big Blue focus lights.  Big fan of this but have begun thinking about what is next.


EM1 is better, from the reviews / comparisons I've read but enough to ditch the EM5?  

EM5 II again, a big enough improvement to warrant a switch?


At this point I think the key things that would make me jump are improved image quality and faster auto focus.  Would also love if something had continuous AF.  Other items likely fall into the category of nice to have.  When I see the comparison sites talk about "what's missing" things like in camera panorama, Bluetooth, etc are not must haves.
