In Topic: EPL-2 as alternative to high end compact

03 October 2011 - 01:09 PM

We have received and tested the MCON-P01 and FCON-PO1 lenses.

m.Zuiko 14-42 /3.5-5.6 II & MCON-P01 is usable in Zen WA-100-EP. It is not usable in WA-100-EP714, DP-100-EP, or FP-100-EP.

m.Zuiko 14-42 /3.5-5.6 & FCON-P01 is not usable in any of the ports we currently offer. We are investigating a short extension ring for WA-100 that would allow its use, but I can't comment on image quality or compatibility yet.

Have you tested whether the wideangle convert WCON-P01 is usable with the M.Zuiko 14-42 /3.5-5.6 II in a Zen WA-100-EP port?
How would the result compare to those taken with a 9-18mm dedicated wideangle lens?

Thanks a lot!

Would anyone know if there's a manufacturer in the UK that makes a port cover for the WA-100-EP dome port?

In Topic: Olympus PT-EP01 and slave strobe connections

I'm looking to upgrade my UW camera to Olympus PT-EP01 Underwater Housing and PEN E-PL1, but I don't want to spend out on a new strobe just yet. I currently use a fantasea nano fibre optic cable to connect a fuji remora to my current setup. I've done some investigation, but getting conflicting information. Could someone tell me if I can reuse this strobe and/ or cable with the PEN setup?

I currently use a Fantasea Nano fibre optic cable to sync a Sea&Sea YS-01 with an E-PL2 in a PT-EP03 housing. My sync cable has the plug on both ends (rather than the velco thingy) which triggers the flash on the lowest possible flash power setting - 1/64.

Hope that helps.

Slightly unrelated, but people subscribed to this thread might know this:

When in M mode, how do you change aperture and shutter speed when the E-PL2 is in the Olympus housing? Normally it's done by turning the little thumb wheel, but the housing has no gears to operate that from the outside.

As to derway's question - the Olympus housing for the E-PL2 has 2 very small 'windows' (diameter <1mm) to attach a fibre optic sync cord. I have no experience with how light the HW adapter requires, but I found that the flash setting has to be on at least 1/4 to trigger the Sea&Sea YS-01 strobe. I had hoped the 1/64 power setting would be enough to set off the strobe.

Hi there,
I am very interested in the package. I live in New Zealand, would you be willing to organise postage there? At my cost of course! Will all the components fit into the case? I tried to pm you but can't, i think because I'm a new member. My email is brianthediver@gmail.com.

The system is now sold.

Thanks to wetpixel member brianthediver for arranging a smooth transaction. I am sure that it goes to a good home :B):
