Olympus IBIS underwater for video

23 December 2013 - 06:49 PM

Anyone have tips for using the in-body image stabilization in Olympus cameras for shooting video.  I assume the algorithms are optimized for land-based use (i.e. hand trembling rather than water motion).


Any hints as to which mode to use? There are usually at least two modes, sometimes 3 (called, appropriately enough, 1, 2,  and 3).  Should I disable it entirely?


I'm referring to the earlier bodies, not the 5-axis IBIS seen in the E-M* models.



Pin-out for Nikonos 3-pin cable

02 May 2013 - 02:18 AM

I am trying to make an old SB-101 useful.  It is in good shape, and I can make it flash using the TEST button.  However, when I try shorting out each combination of the three pins (two at a time, taking appropriate safety precautions), I can't make it trigger.


Am I just not getting the pins deep enough, or do these work on a different principle than PC sync cables?  Does anyone have the specs for the 3-pin Nikonos cables?
