In Topic: YS-01 Strobe losing power underwater, fine on land

06 November 2016 - 11:08 AM

Looks like one of the contacts had a bit of crud on it, barely visible. Wiped it off with a paper towel and it still seems to work when I press on the battery lid. I'll know for sure when I dive on Wednesday. Thanks. I hadn't seen that when I opened it up yesterday before my dive. 


In Topic: WANT TO BUY: Sea & Sea YS-D1 or YS-D2

I think $500 is too much for a D1 that's discontinued, especially when I can get a D2 for $580 new. Thanks though. 


In Topic: WA options for micro four thirds cameras

There's also the Olympus 9-18mm in a micro 4/3rds mount. I have that lens currently as I didn't want to spring for the 7-14's and a dome port. The 9-18mm worked with my Olympus housing's flat port, although it isn't ideal for getting the widest image possible. Corners aren't the sharpest, but for the money it's a good option. It's only a small step down in image quality compared to the Panasonic 7-14mm, for instance. New they are $400-500 USD here in the states, not sure what it is for you in NZ. 

 

If you have the budget, by all means go for the Olympus 7-14mm PRO lens. That would be the absolute best lens in this focal length.

I ordered mine from Amazon.co.uk. Other than some shipping damage, it's a great book. Thanks for putting it out.

I don't need a port adapter. It's an older E-PM1. Thanks though.
