In Topic: Where to mount airlock electronics NAEM5

14 August 2014 - 07:14 PM

Thanks you guys. I ended up using the housing today with the airlock, and I wedged the electronics in between the camera and the lower left corner of the case. I wasn't able to attach it to the wall, but it was held in nice and snug by the camera, and it seemed to work well. It is a tight fit everywhere in there!

I'm feeling a little bummed about this one...I spoke with the service manager at Backscatter, and they said they have never installed the electronic airlock in the NA-EM5, so they are not sure the best place for it to be mounted. Worse yet, they don't have one of these housings in stock so they can check it out themselves. If someone has one of these, PLEASE take a pic and let me know where you managed to mount the electronics. Hopefully someone out there has done it!

I used them for a pair of ysd1 strobes about 6 months ago. Had a great experience with them, and their prices are amazing

In Topic: Olympus OM-D E-M5: wide angle recommendation?

09 September 2013 - 05:27 AM

The 8mm and the 7-14 zoom are the best wide angle options for the OMD. Both will work great for whale sharks. I have both, and both are very enjoyable to work with. The 8mm FE is a bit wider of a lens. The 7-14 has the added advantage of being a useful topside lens. I don't get much use from my 8mm topside.


I think the best way to decide which one is best is to look at a bunch of pictures from fish eye lenses vs rectilinear lenses and see which perspective you like the best. I wouldn't worry about trying to find pics specifically taken by these lenses to make your comparison - I would just decide which perspective through the lens you enjoy the most. Both lenses are plenty sharp.


For your stated purpose of taking pics of whale sharks, though, you can't go wrong with either lens.
