  1. I bought this modified externally-mounted wide angle lens several years ago to add some width to my old compact system. Unfortunately, because it had been modified--the bayonet mount exchanged for 55m threads--I had to use a step-up ring (40-55mm) to attach it, and the extra distance from my port demanded a touch of zoom to prevent vignetting, which narrowed the angle of view, so, after six or seven dives, it got bunted to the back of the dive locker. 0.56X means if you have a 28mm lens on your compact camera, multiply by .56 for a resulting focal length of 15.68mm (reverse of using a 1.4x or 2.0x teleconverter for instance). It should work on any compact housing with a 55mm filter thread. (I know FantaSea still sells wide lenses of this size, but don't know which brand of housings uses them. Most Olympus are 52mm or 67mm as I recall.) The most important factor besides thread size for these lenses is the distance from the camera lens to the port glass. The closer the lens is to the port, the wider the image. The area where the 55mm threads were substituted looks a bit rough, as you can see in the pics, but it's watertight, yields sharp images, and the lenses are very clean. I hope someone can find a use for this. I'm asking $35 plus cost of shipping. Please write with any questions.
  2. Ah! Limacia cockerelli seems to be Laila cockerelli. I have just got to keep up with the trends. Thanks for the site information; I'l be using it.
  3. About 30' down on the riprap. Looks like Laila cockerelli color morph, but...
  4. Oops. Pete L. And, "free" did you say? Well!...
  5. Hi, kc_. I'm on Windows, The I-P:5 is Mpeg4 AVCH 264 or, alternatively, AVC, with the former housed in .MOV. Unfortunately .MOV is not a video format, it's a container which can hold videos in different formats, including Olympus' proprietary format, not all of which can--or could--be handled by Premiere Elements. Vondo, above, cites no problems with PE 13, which made me recheck some of the online complaints again. I noticed most were before 2015, so perhaps the difficulty has since been corrected? I hope so,and will tell yall what I find. Thanks for the help and input!
  6. Thanks, Tiger Shark, but a little above my pay grade. Good reviews, though.
  7. I asked this question in the Video Gear and Technique page and would like to ask it here as well. It's a very newbie question, but one I'm having difficulty getting an answer to. I want to branch out with my E-PL5 (cuz it's what I got) into video and Premiere Elements was suggested as good, basic, affordable software upon which to start learning editing. There seems to be comment on the web--a lot of it--that despite advertisement to the contrary, various incarnations of PE won't acknowledge Olympus' .MOV or .AVI formats without it first being switched into some other format. Olympus' emphasis seems to be on photography, not video, and perhaps that's why contacting them directly was of very limited assistance. Has anyone else experienced and resolved this difficulty, or can anyone suggest other, perhaps better, video editing software suggestions that fit the above parameters (good, basic, affordable)?

  9. Thanks! Much more information than I had before. Sorry I didn't see your response earlier.
  10. I bought this externally mounted wide angle lens to add some width to my old system. Unfortunately I had to use step-up rings to attach it, and the extra distance from my port narrowed the angle of view, so, after six or seven dives, it got bunted to the back of the dive locker. Years later I've decided to sell it and can find almost no information about it online. For instance, what is its coverage? 20mm? It has 55mm threads on the rear; what camera or housing is it designed to screw into? And what does 0.56X mean? I asked the same question in another forum here and received no reply. Does anyone have informative details on this beastie?

  12. I suppose it's a worm's operculum of some sort. On the sand bottom at 30' in Monterey, CA.
