  1. photographed mid-August, 2017, in the shallows at a southern dive site
  2. My attempt to send private messages may not have worked. If you are interested in the housing & camera, you can email me at msilver2@comcast.net --msilver2
  3. It is available. I have never sold anything through wetpixel. Is there a way to communicate offline?
  4. I am selling my Nauticam housing for the Olympus E-M1, as well as a mint-condition E-M1 $1600 total; will ship within continental U.S. Housing: Nauticam NA-EM1 housing for Olympus E-M1, with Nauticam Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System Olympus E-M1 Mint condition--less than 600 shutter activations (purchased new as backup camera 11/2016) firmware version 4.1 installed comes with original box and all original accessories: · Flash FL-LM2 · Flash case· Lithium ion battery BLN-1 · Lithium ion battery charger BCN-1 · Shoulder strap · USB cable · Computer software CD-ROM · Instruction manual plus these extras: · 2 extra Olympus batteries · 1 additional third-party battery · Wasabi power charger (plugs into outlet—no need for cord)
  5. Twice now in the last four days the E-M1 has locked up on me during a dive. The camera sticks into one screen and then it won't respond to any buttons or knobs and won't take a photo and won't turn off. both times I had to wait until the dive was over and remove the battery. After reinserting the battery topside, the camera returned to normal operation. Anyone had a similar experience? Is there a solution? It's hard to imagine sending it in for repair as I don't know that the problem would manifest itself while the doctor is looking at it.
  6. I posted this question yesterday, but the photos didn't come thru. Here's a second try. On my first dive trip with the Olympus E-M1 and the Nauticam housing, I had a problem using TTL. I think it showed up the most with medium distances using the 60mm macro lens. I was using two YS-01 strobes. I have some examples of the problem. All of these are shot with the mode dial on manual. The metering was center-weighted. Here’s a pair of flamingo tongues that were overexposed when shot at 1/320th and f6.3. My reaction was to drastically change the f stop, so exposure on the next shot was OK 1/320th at f 14.0: Same dive, here’s a toadfish overexposed when shot at 1/320th and f 8.0: Again, I stopped the camera down, and the next shot was OK at 1/320th and f 14.0: Here’s a shot that had OK exposure at 1/160th at f 6.3: But then the very next shot (different subject), is way over-exposed when also shot at 1/160th at f 6.3: The same scene is better exposed after drastic changes to the shutter speed and aperture, this time 1/320th at f13.0: Any ideas what I was doing wrong? Could I have had the flash setting on “full” rather than “fill”? Would that explain this?
  7. thanks for the reply. I'll have to figure out why the photos didn't post. I haven't done this before.
  8. Steve: I posted my question in the forum re mirrorless cameras. (Maybe I should have posted it here in the beginners forum, or maybe in the lighting forum, since it's a question about TTL.)

  10. Thanks Steve: I've got a longer question but I wanted to illustrate it with some of the problem photos, and I wanted to see if I could get a photo into a post. Thanks for advising me to resize the photos. I'll resize before trying it with my question.
