In Topic: Removing the flash thingy from a NA-E-M5 housing?

I just add that the plastic flash thingy comes off easily with the two hex screws using the housing toolkit. I used two red laser modules for the flash. The good thing is there's plenty of intensity, the drawback is that the alignment is critical so I had to align really carefully before gluing them in position.

Yes there is always an added value with convenience that it. is already fitted and guanteed to work in that housing. Does the Nauticam versions all have the same standard casing but varied hot shoe holder height?

I have successfully removed the plastic gizmo and successfully used the Hedwig LED solution. Works great.

Great, only those two hex screws and it came of easily without too much violence?

I think a product like this flash trigger must competitive priced, especially as a non TTL version really is simple. Also it does not have to be housing manufacturer specific. Maybe that put Nauticam off. A pity though, it would have been simple to provide with each new housing or as an add on.

No worries Phil, My plan is to use my own DIY mini strobe. Just like you I use 1/64th and care little about TTL.

How would the other nauticam flash triggers work in the OMD housing? The manual version should work straight off the shelf except for that the light needs to be aligned with the fibre ports.

For myself I am guessing there are no caveats like excessive glue or sealing screws with this thingy

In Topic: OM-D E-M5 II stabilization improvement significant?

I would not upgrade this time anyhow, but I do quite often push high ISO and very long shutter times so that's the reason of the interest. In saying that I disagree about wa lenses and IS, it does make a significant difference.
