  1. I missed the obvious reply to use something completely different than flexitray altogether. What do you propose that is still compact with this housing?
  2. Hi All, I have an Olympus E-M5 I in Nauticam's housing (NA-EM5) and with the Nauticam tray (flexitray) and dual handles. On top of the handles i have strobes with double 5" arms on booth sides. Now the problem, I have already broken of on pair of handles and got them replaced by Nauticam at no cost. The handles are too week at the tray fitting to take up the forces from the handles.Newer Nauticam houses have a stainless steel extension from the top of the handle that attaches to the housing itself. This takes up the side-forces on the handles much better. Have any of you made or found a ready-made solution for this? The NA-EM5 mark 1 housing does not have screw fittings on booth sides of the housing so i find it hard to improvise something. Cheers /O
  3. How about the olympus 12 f2 behind the nauticam 4.33" dome for CFWA? I happen to have that lens but have not used it UW yet
  4. You could trigger with a led flash whose only purpose is to trigger and uses own battery without any recharge time. Third party mini flashes are most often manual mode only, which is fine with me
  5. It was me who had the same problem. I ended up buying a used camera instead. The other camera became topside only. However since then I also lost the right hand thumb dial :-)
  6. Interesting, would you mind posting a picture of the rig?
  7. Do you have a pic how it looks with the mk 2 housing?
  8. Thanks, that is great! I was thinking about replacing the innards with something different. What is the switch for, different sensitivity levels? Cheers /Oskar
  9. I take it that there was no corrector a presented at dema?
  10. Right, Thanks. It could be worthwhile to check if they have the service manual. It seems to be scarce. That service kit an others are only the battery compartment and connector orings. I I'll risk not to change the knob seals for now
  11. Hi all! I need to know the threads on the other end, the Strobe-side. I need to make new plugs there to seal the storobes while they are used as optical slaves. Any Ideas, should also be metric then perhaps? Cheers Oskar
  12. How can this be done? Are they glued shut? The black front cover seems tight is it glued or possible to screw off? Cheers
  13. Yes I would not consider sending it in for service, it would be diy. Anyone here with instructions on how to best disassemble it by the way?
  14. Thanks, no worries. I have yet to test them. I'm considering the space to install a slave sensor inside. A bit tight
  15. I have got a couple of the above strobes that are missing the caps, can the be sourced somewhere still? Alternatively I could keep the cables but then I need the end cap to the other end of the cable. This is a narrower three pin female, what kind is that? Is it possible to get bulk head connectors for these to use in own projects? Cheers Oskar
