  1. Hello!

     

    I've been using Meikon dome port with OMD EM-5 housing and/or Sony RX100 IiI. They've been working great for me. But I found that "screwing" the dome port while diving is a real hassle. Fore reference, this is pretty much what I've been doing:

     

    Anyone out there have any suggestion on how to make installing/uninstalling it more swiftly? My thoughts so far:

    1. Buy an M67 ring adapter that has a built-in hinge and a clip or magnet so I can open/close it like a door underwater. I've seen someone using a macro lens attachment like this when diving in Bali. I didn't bother asking him since his setup looked like it's 10x more expensive :)

    2. Use a bunch of magnets around the edge of lens opening and the dome port. Not sure how secure this mod will be.

    3. I googled/youtubed "bayonet" dome port, but still couldn't figure out what/how it works, so I'm not sure what this is. Is this the right solution? Can anyone point to where I can get one for Meikon? it's got 67mm diameter.

     

    Thanks.


  2. Has anyone ever used a nalgene HDPE bottle (http://www.amazon.com/Nalgene-Mouth-Bottle-Clear-48-Ounce/dp/B001E6K7V6/) or latched acrylic jar (http://www.walmart.com/ip/San-130-oz-Acrylic-Latch-Jar-Clear/39082929) to put your non-waterproof devices like regular flashlight, radio, or some $40 GPS tracker? with some extra O-rings if necessary.

     

    I'm not talking about deep dive. Maybe max of 30-40 m.


  3. Hi,

     

    Newbie here (both in terms of scuba and underwater photography) with Oly EM-5 and a Meikon case that has only been tested in my bathtub.

     

    I'm trying to decide whether it's worth to spend on an external filter that's attached to outside of your case (i.e. http://www.intova.net/ifred-red-filter/) or just use the one that I already have (normal round red filter, attached directly to the lens). I'm not trying to spend alot of money since I'm just a beginner.

     

    Any thoughts? Thanks.
