In Topic: Nauticam flextray not so good, alternatives?

I'd appreciate some more directions on how to preceed with the return.

 

However, if I would choose not to have an handle on right, but put a ball mount in the M10 fitting, what length of the ball mount is best?

 

fore example this 62mm one, is it good height to clear the housing, or should i go for the even longer one?

For the immediate dives tomorrow, it will have to be single strobe :-(

 

Cheers

Thanks Ryan! 
 
I'll respond to your pm. But I think you might be right that this system is an early E-M5 setup.
 
Was this a general recall, can I just contact closest dealer for a free replacement you mean?
 
Cheers

HI Oskar,

I've sent you a PM, but it would be good to get a bit more info on the age of this system.  There was a known issue that caused something like this with some early handles.  It was corrected, dealer stock was replaced in those cases.  If this is that problem, it looks like yours was missed.

 

It is normal for the handles to have a bit of flex in them, which some people don't enjoy, and is amplified with heavy strobes or video lights.  The handle bracket has been added as an optional install to knock that out.

 

Moses, I wouldn't worry about the strengths of those the handle bolt attachment.  They brackets are optional, and something like 20 models used this tray prior to their being added.

 

Handle brackets were never offered for E-M5.  The mounting holes you see on the right grip are for an accessory hand strap, not a bracket.  I'm confident that once you get a current handle this won't happen again.

Ok, where do you get that bracket?    On my housing there are holes for the right side for such a bracket, but not on the left side. Maybe newer housings have mountings on booth sides.

 

So if you have a E-M5 housing, the general warning is for the left handle, you should aim to replace that with a third party handle of better spec!

Well, no panic I got some creative opportunities with off camera strobe, but the hands were full :-)

Are there up rated versions for this? Does Nauticam have some sort of replacement program? Or, are there any alternative handles that could it same tray?
