In Topic: Which Olympus model to upgrade to...

02 February 2017 - 04:35 AM

My experience for what it is worth... Buy (with in reason) the best you can afford. I was in a similar position to you a while ago, so many options I was just fed up of thinking about the pros and cons of each choice. I ended up making the decision between the top pen at the time (the exact model I can't remember now) and the what was new OMD EM1. I already had a pen camera with only housing so ended up going for the cheaper upgrade with the new pen. 

It wasn't long before I ended up cutting my losses and opting the the far better OMD and Nauticam housing. To put it bluntly the controllability you get is far better (for underwater use is a major factor), the build cost is far better and robust. So if it means saving a bit longer I would do that or look for a used setup.

Ask around if anyone is using the setups your thinking about and compare the two. If your in the South West I am always out diving with my EM1.

I wouldn't think twice, Nauticam every time... Try http://www.nauticam.co.ukAs Alex is the main dealer he may be able to give you the best price.

Yes sounds like I could be interested. How much are you looking for it? Can you post some pictures?

Some good advice above...

I can only really advise that if you are looking at one strobe then buy a good one, Inon or Sea & Sea would be my choice. But one thing I will say is if you are looking to take pictures as you describe above, two will always be better.
