3D Printed Nauticam Float Arm Bayonet Holder

06 February 2016 - 08:56 AM

When all my new WWL and bayonet stuff arrived. I released I had no where to put the CMC, unless I added another non floaty arm. Not ideal.

More 3D design and printing later, I have this:

You need the arm holder. But remove the 6 screws and using this part you can zip tie the holder on to one of the 60mm diameter arms, like this:

I'm using my spare 67mm screw in holder for prototyping, but it's the same screw layout.

Need to refine the hole place. Two offset a little. But it's done.

Will link to the finished downloadable file. Once I've fixed it.

3D Printed Nauticam Bayonet Cap

03 February 2016 - 12:00 PM

One of the things that struck me about the new bayonet system (apart from its great!) was that (unless I've missed it) there is no cap for the bayonet once you have it attached to your housing. I don't tend to keep my WWL attached, but once removed it leaves the front element of the port exposed.

8 or 9 trails later (might of been more. Lost count)

I made up a 2 piece cap for the bayonet system.
Reason for it being 2 piece was to get the front with the logo, so need to glue it. It does appear my printer isn't great at logos, so will probably go with something plainer next time.

Here is the finished project:

Ninja2 can run upside down. News to me!

31 January 2016 - 06:08 AM


I've had a Atomos Ninja2 for a while and thought I knew it pretty well... However yesterday I was doing some work on VLOG in 10bit 1080 topside and I had a friend turn up with his Ninja upside down. I was like - how you do that! Erm... Quite easily by the looks of it - Orientation option.

So now I can run my Ninja underwater more like the Shogun with it pivoting from the top - much easier.

Filters and Nauticam WWL and the 14-42mm MKII

22 January 2016 - 06:24 AM

Having used a magic-filter on the rear filter holder with the 7-14mm lens, I want to use a magic filter with my modified setup of the 14-42mm and WWL
 
I was hoping to be able to use an externally mounted 67mm filter in-between the port and the WWL (so I could remove while diving) - but there isn't any space. So I went hunting for a internally mounted solution.
 
The 14-42mm mk2 sits super close to the back (or is it the front? :) ) of the 35mm port - so close a Auto-Magic or URPRO filter (at 5mm thick) won't fit. 
 
So I went back to the original Gel Magic-Filters...
The first solution would be to just use tape and stick one on, but these Gel and fingers don't mix and I was forever getting finger prints over mine so wanted a more easy / permanent solution, so I could install / remove as required.
 
I looked for ultra thin UV filters (some only 2.75mm thick) perhaps to use as a frame- but these are still too thick.
 
I then remembered back to my old EPL-3 - and the Olympus shading rings they sold - so £30 later I have a Olympus POSR-EP08.

Alas the inner ring is too wide for the 14-42mm MK2 - and although would of been the ideal solution - it doesn't screw down all the way and within a hair is still too thick (pushing in the camera, makes the lens barrel go to 14.5mm)

So after a few trial and errors, I've now printed a filter holder, which is only 0.5mm thick and fits the lens using the lens hood bayonet fitting. I can now glue/fix the magic-filer to this and not worry and fingers etc
