  1. Thanks Bob, I did read that article. I was looking for some hands on use by the members here. I will be in Monterey next month and one will be coming home with me. I plan on doing some diving while there, if so I’ll post my comments and hopefully some results. Brant
  2. Olympus has a compatibility chart, but it is not easy to find. Call Backscatter, they can give you the url or tell you if it will fit. Brant
  3. Thanks for the link. Looks good. I’ll be in Monterey next month, I think one is going to be added to my kit. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I can get a few dives in while I’m out there.
  4. Doe anyone have any first hand experience with Backscatter’s Mini Strobe/snoot?
  5. As a new member I was glad to see this thread. I have the luxury of a small machine shop in my garage and it has let me build a lot of my accessories. When I migrated to an OLYMPUS OMD E-M5 I made my own tray, handles, arms and clamps. Not giving much thought to the o-rings, I just bought a size that fit my design and chose a hard durometer to hold up under the abuse. I’ve been using them for 4 years now and they hold position well and are easily adjustable. After reading this I think I must have been very fortunate to have them work as well as they do. If anyone is interested in changing their o-rings you might look at www.mcmaster.com and search their o-ring selections. Brant Emery
  6. Absolutely beautiful work! You said this was the first time for you on a Black Water dive. How difficult was it to frame and focus? I have never done that type of dive and I very much want to try on future trips. Any suggestions? Brant
  7. Hello fellow photo-holics. My name is Brant and I currently reside in the Chicago area. I started taking pictures underwater in 1979 while working on a live aboard in the Bahamas. I have gone thru several upgrades over the years and I currently shoot with an Olympus OMD E-M5. I am looking forward to sharing and learning here, I really want to progress from my current level. I’ll post some of my recent work in the appropriate forum.
