From the videos on Vimeo, it heavily crops to achieve the results - but they are impressive. Fair play to them, showing the side by sides.
I've sent a message to them, asking why the need for Mic input and Video output (I presume for time syncing, can't understand why the mic input thou). For underwater it won't fit inside a housing, so will need a separate housing and a cabling duct.
The Unit is the same for both GoPro and any other camera, but the attachment for other cameras, has the 3.5mm inputs/outputs, which the unit clips into.
The unit fits in a standard go pro housing like a BatteryPac, so I was thinking, use that (GoPro + unit) underwater (attached to your main camera rig) and using something to sync the go pro and the other camera (clapper, hand wave or something..) you could then use the data from the unit taken with the GoPro, but for the video from your main video?
Looking forward to the Crowdfunding, I think it will be the first thing I've pledged too!
What you can do is order the original port from the EPL1 housing - Part Number: VG657900 (This you will need to order as a 'spare part' from a service centre, its not something you can buy over the counter.
The only problem is that port does not have a threaded front - so you will need the clip-on 67mm adapter Part Number: PMLA-EP01
*** I see you are in the UK - you need to speak with Luton Cameras, these are the official Olympus service centre.
Progress on the modified zoom gear. Once I had taken it apart. I realised the amount of effort Nauticam put in to it!! It's taken 3 trial prints to get this fair. Only thing concerning me is the wall thickness (in plastic) and the 3 small screws that will hold it together.
After having a look at the current zoom gearing, it looks like it will be super easy to make it work with the focus switch.
The issue with this gearing is the springs - its quite a clever solution from Nauticam, if you're happy using the zoom gearing as a basis for the focus gearing, all that needs to be replaced is the top part (see photo) which I've redone for the smaller focus switch.
Will get the printer warmed up this weekend and get one printed and see how it works.
Ultimately a complete solution not using the zoom gearing would be good - but for now, this will do!
Richard I would definitely be interested in a Print!
Happy to get you a print of the gearing in the post. :-)
Will have a proper look at the current zoom gear and lens in the morning (bit late in the day now) and get a model knocked up. Once it's done Ill send you one, and if anyone else is interested I can either send a print or provide the STL file (which you can use with any 3D printer or print service like ShapeWays.
