In Topic: OM-D EM-1

Hi Kadu,

The only way to fire the flash while flipped down is to set the camera to underwater mode...this will limit your control of the camera...
I don't use Aquatica and would like to ask: why do you want to keep the flash flipped down?

I'm not sure about the EM-1, but on the EM-5 once you set underwater mode the flash will fire in the flipped down position, you can then change mode with the mode dial to whatever you normally use (eg M) and the flash will continue to fire in the flipped down position

Long time lurker, first time poster. Inspired by the excellent work of Storker I tried the same trick with my setup - EM-5 in the Oly housing with Zen dome and adapter. Shots run through LR, tone adjusted with auto (sun kept moving behind clouds) and a quick distortion correction for the +2 and +4 diopters. I also shot freehand with the chart stuck to a pool wall so the same caveats around accuracy apply, however I think you'll agree the differences aren't subtle at the 9 mm end (corner crops):


The +4 diopter didn't gain much on stopping down, the +2 caught up with +4/ f5.6 at around f10. The CA cleans up in LR nicely even on the +4, the diopters were cheap close up lenses I brought about 10 years ago so it may be nicer with more expensive glass (or maybe not). The corners were much nicer at the 18 mm end for all settings.

If you are interested in splitting the items up, I would be interested in purchasing the housing.
