Although I have never owned one, Subal housings have an excellent reputation for quality and are undoubtedly one of the best housing brands.  I would not hesitate to use one.

From what I have seen, Olympus can and will fix this and often will do so at no charge outside of warranty, although I would not count on that.  Once I learned of this issue I have tried to keep my camera from being in a position where direct sun enters the eyepiece.  I have been lucky so far.Some people have said that after having the replacement done, they have not had the problem again, perhaps suggesting that there has been some sort of change.    I suspect they are just more careful.  Supposedly this is most common if you use a high diopter power to adjust for eyesight.  The magnification works both ways and increases the intensity and therefore heat on the sensor.  I have not heard either way whether this is still a problem on the Mk ii


The "good" news if it happens is that it does not affect the images or the lcd, so if it happens on a trip, you can keep shooting (if you can see around the blobs).


Good luck and let us know what Olympus does.

Jim:  These also fit Inon strobes.  They look like the correct type to fit the type 4 strobe.  If that is right, I will take them.


Actually, after a bit of further checking, I don't think they are the correct ones.  I am looking for a 26214 part number and I think these are the 26212.

In Topic: For Sale: two (2) Nauticam carbon fiber float arms

22 February 2017 - 04:53 PM

One last try before I just trade them in on something or put them on an auction site.  Two 90mm x 200mm Nauticam carbon fiber arms.  One unused, still in the package and one used for a few dives, perfect condition.  $180.00 for both - $90.00 for the used one alone - $100 for just the new one.  Prices include shipping in the lower 48 states.  If interested please send me PM. 


New from any of the usual places, these cost $120.00 each.
