The Olympus evolt 300 is turning out well in the Oly housing so far, but I was very interested in what was mentioned by Tropical 1 / Phil Rudy. The cord you mentioned that was being made for you- who is the guy? Mike Finger? Can you send me his email or forward mine? Reason being that Olympus is not, it seems, ever going to make a Nik V plug ever appear on their housings.
Having to be stuck with a housed FL36 is not an ideal choice, even though the flash is a perfectly good unit, the housing is distorting the beam, and the squarish beam of light it throws is awful. Even my Subal housed SB800 isn't that bad, as Subal has put the flash behind a dome.
Compared to a Sea+sea 90DX or Inon head or Subtronic for example, which all throw a perfect round beam, the lack of dispersion optics (not diffusers) is what is needed in the FL-36 housing,
as the included diffuser sucks away two stops - and I don't feel the user should HAVE to use a diffuser if they want/need a harder light.
SO = I would be ordering a LOT of them cords! Viva Mike Finger!?
PS wide angle ports due in any day, will do quick dive with 7-14 and get back 2 U Phil.
