In Topic: Nauticam NA-EM5 housing shutter lever 'sticky'

Ah, thanks for the info. After my first "fix" via jander4454's suggestion, the shutter action was again not smooth.  After looking into my housing and playing with a few internal levers, I discovered that the lever with a spring that contacted my camera shutter was too snugly fit on the plastic shaft it rotated around.  The lever still had a hard time rotating even after loosening screw that held the lever onto the shaft.  I then just gently sanded the hole on the lever where the shaft goes in and it now rotates freely.

Thanks!  This seems to have made the shutter lever smoother and return to it's original position.

Do you know what was done when you got your housing serviced?  Replacement parts?  I'm wondering since loosening the screw seemed to have fixed it.  Will need to dive with it.

That's a good point that I've thought of before but forgot to look into more.  I think I've always been using Transcend SDHC 10 16GB cards while shooting RAW only.  Though, I'm not exactly sure what cards I was using when my camera froze.


I'll look into this, thanks.

Here is a link to a further discussion on the unresponsiveness problem that happens.  For more info.

Hi Phil,


Thanks for the reply.  Hm, interesting. Seems like when my camera crashes it's when I'm in MF mode where my shutter release is the shutter button and my focus is set to the Movie record button.  I had a feeling it was that combination.  The dive after my camera crashed, I set my camera to S-AF where shutter release button was for the shutter release and focus (half-pressed).  No crash on second dive.


When your F1 button was set to shutter release, did you have a separate button set to focus?
