Thanks again,

@ Bill and Tom,

 

thanks! There are a few specialized hardware stores around Cologne, but instead of trying to find it there (stainless doesn't make it easier), I searched on ebay Germany and found it.

 

Life could be so easy if you US guys wouldn't be so stubborn and finally change to... METRIC!  :evilgrin:

Bill,

 

thanks for your answer - it is for a SS200 strobe (the old workhorse...)

Edit:

Just measured - the outer diameter is 9.5mm, which is 0.374", so 1/4" will be too small.


In Topic: OMD Flexi Tray vs Hand Strap

Marko,

the plate comes with the hand
strap if you buy it from Nauticam. Search for "Nauticam long hand strap for mirrorless housings".

Hi Marko,

 

what camera/housing do you have? I suppose the housing has the shutter release on the top and not on its side (otherwise there would be no need to get your hand between handle and housing)? 

 

Maybe you want to read the last few entries of this thread:

For me it is a DIY project; I just ordered aluminium tray custom-made to my requirements. Will post a fw pics when everything is finished.

 

With the wrist support mentioned in the thread I had been diving for many years with my RS camera, both with and without gloves - absolutely no problem.
