  1. Camera and housing is sold! Gesendet von meinem GT-I9301I mit Tapatalk
  2. I use the Panasonic 7-14 mm for a year now on my Olympus OM-D E-M10 for still photography, and I am very satisfied with the results!
  3. Here is a new seller :-) I also have an Olympus E-PL6 with 14-42 lens and PT-EP10 case for sale. Just make an offer. Gesendet von meinem GT-I9301I mit Tapatalk
  4. I'll get a black zoom gear from Jussi (a.k.a Deep Shots), and a friend of mine is manufacturing a neoprene light mask similar to the Aquatica for me. This should solve all issues. I will post some pictures as soon as the parts arrive!
  5. Some more Pictures: First pic: Selfie with Panasonic lens without zoom gear Second pic: Olympus 9-18 mm lens assembly Third pic: Selfie with Olympus lens with Olympus zoom gear
  6. Thank you for your input! I think I identified the culprit: The Deep Shots Zoom gear. I hope I can get it exchanged for a black one ...
  7. Dear all, I recently upgraded from Olympus E-PL6 / 9-18 mm / Olympus housing to OM-D E-M10 / Panasonic 7-14 mm / Nauticam housing because I wanted to go deeper and wider Now I get a strange red artefact on some pictures (examples enclosed). Lens is Panasonic 7-14 mm @ f 7.1, dome port is Nauticam 6". Of course, AF Illumination in the custom menu is turned off. Any ideas? P.S. Example pictures were taken on the Milford Haven wreck, the second Picture at a depth of 79 metres.
  8. Thank you for all your answers, I will experiment with slower shutter speeds. However, one big advantage of the LX-3 / Inon Combo is that the pictures are quite sharp to the edges even at F2 ...
  9. Dear Tim, thank you for your answer. I'm aware of the fact that it is the amount of ambient light getting to the sensor determining the brightness of the background. However, there are several ways to achieve this (e.g. lower F value). It is also possible to increase the sensitivity setting (=higher ISO) to get a similar effect. I would be interested in the settings other users of this lens use. The tutorials on the internet mostly recommend F8 1/125 for MFT wide angle, that's why I started with these settings, ending up with the dark backgrounds :-( I've seen a lot of pictures on the internet even taken at 1/160 sec having a lot brighter backgrounds than my pictures. That's why I started this topic. Best Regards, Philip
  10. ... and finally, a picture of the same wreck taken with my old camera (Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 with Inon UWL-100 wide angle lens and a single Inon z240 type 4 strobe) at F 2.3 1/40 sec ISO 100. The brackground is much, much brighter!
  11. ... and here are 1 to 1 crops (in the same order, 1st crop being derived from a different source picture to illustrate the possible level of detail)
  12. Dear all, I'm using an Olympus E-PL6 with the M.Zuiko 9-18 mm wideangle lens, PT-EP10 housing, Zen Dome and two Inon z240 Typ 4 flashes with diffusors mounted. I did around 30 dives with this combo since March 2014, all in the Mediterranean sea. I get excellent pictures at F 8, 1/125 sec, ISO 200, but they all have a very dark background (very dark blue). If I use F 6.3, the background resembles more what I see during the dive, but the corners of the pictures are too soft for my taste. I tried adding a +2 Diopter. This improved sharpness in the corners, but I have the impression that it degrades overall Image quality. On my last dive, a wreck dive at 44 meters depth, I tried out F8, 1/100 sec, ISO 400. The background is o.k. in my opinion, but I lose some IQ due to the higher ISO, and the fishes are a little blurred because of the longer exposure ... I would really appreciate your advice! Best Regards, Philip P.S. Examples enclosed are (1) F8 1/125 sec ISO 200, (2) F/8 1/100 sec ISO 400 and (3) F6.3 1/100 sec ISO 200 + Diopter. All Pictures were taken at a depth of between 40 and 45 m.
  13. Hello, My name is Philip and I currently live in Aix-en-Provence (France), close to the Mediterranean sea. I'm a certified Technical and Trimix Diver (IANTD). I'm using an Olympus E-PL6 in Olympus PT-EP10 housing, with Zen Glass Dome and two Inon Z240 Type 4 strobes. My main lens is the Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18 mm. I also own a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 with 10 Bar Housing and Inon UW-100 wide angle lens.
