In Topic: OM-D E-M1 rear dial problem

04 July 2015 - 10:18 PM

Unfortunatly I had the same problem with the two kind of EM1 . The older and the newest silver version . Yes you can use the arrow to manage aperture and shutter speed and use the front dial to zoom pictures avoiding to use the rear dial . It's what I'm doing now .You can find the details in the very good book of Darrell Young  " Mastering the Olympus Em1 " available also as a kindle .

In Topic: Olympus new lenses 8 mm fisheye considerations weight and so on ...

Probably several people  will again tell me that I'm completely nuts and don't understand anything to underwater photography  , but strobes are supposed to give light , but also and mainly color and this no larger aperture wil help to show  any color in your work underwater ..especially under 10 m and more ..!!

Thank you everybody for your warm welcome and your help in the improvement of my technical english

.Now , I close this thread for myself as I don't belong to any of these group of people ..:   " This lens is not for everyone and is directed like the rest of the "PRO" line at highness shooters, professional photographers and more."    so no need that I loose anymore my time and yours .

It seems that I get a false information about the weight of the 8 mm and I aopologise for that , but I'm not sure that the 8 mm with an EM1 or EM5 MarkII  could be faster than a Nikon 10, 5 mm with a D7100 or 7200 ...

In Topic: Olympus 7-14 mm f2.8 will not fit in Nauticam housings

Thanks for the teaser.


You probably need 70 mm extention for the 7-14 mm (47+22,7) so the best guess is that you tried it with the 36204 60 mm extension with the external locking function.


For the fisheye, the previous 4,33" minidome might be good  with an additional 30 mm extension...



That's fine , but will the curve of the 4,33 minidome be good for the 8mm of Olympus , not leading to the issue of softcorner as we already undergo a little with the  8 mm Pana use with the 4,33 and 3,5 as well ,  ???
