Since my camera has the infamous small cracking on the LCD, I'm sending my camera to the Olympus service to change the LCD and to test the mode dial too.

 

I think you are correct, perhaps my camera is the problem and not the Nauticam housing!

 

Thanks, I'll post here the outcome of this strange problem.

 

Just to let you know that Olympus has repaired successfully my OMD and now, the camera works properly inside the fantastic Nauticam housing. They replaced the cracked LCD, glued properly the mode dial and fixed the internal problem and everything is ok now.

 

Thank you all for your help!!

I have been looking at this on my own OMD camera and when I push the mode dial in any direction, I do not get iA. I think it may be possible that your camera may be faulty.

 

Can other OMD owners please also test with their own cameras? If you push the mode dial horizontally, does the camera go into iA mode?

Yesterday I've mounted the camera without the eye cup, but the problem persisted. 

 

I've contacted with the seller and I'm awaiting a solution now. The good news is that they seems very optimistic about the quality of Nauticam support.

 

Thanks for the comments!

I have had students in some of my workshops that did not have the camera properly mounted onto the tray and/or did not have the tray and/or gear alignment correctly. You may want to check these areas as well. If this issue does not occur all of the time it could be the result of a misalignment.
 


I really thinks that I mount the camera correctly but will check again just in case.

The problem appears only while diving, not before or after, when I surface. I really can see the wheel making contact with the dial looking through the back window of the housing. Is not loss of contact for sure.

If you press horizontally the mode dial of a OMD, the camera enters on iAuto mode so seems like the mode wheel of the housing is pressing too much when the pressure increase.

I think that the housing needs a little adjustement.

Basic check: You did remove the rubber eye cup on the view finder?

Uh... I don't remove the eye cup! It is really necessary?
