  1. Selling my back up EM5 Mark II- like new for $400 (retail is $899). Includes camera body, 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 Kit lens, battery, cords, cable, charger, SD Card, and Flash. Firmware has been updated to 4.0. Unable to decrease size of photo enough to post here. Please contact me and we can find a way to get the photos to you. Please see the Olympus website for retail photo. Description from Olympus follows: please see Olympus website.
  2. Aloha, I've been diving for 16 years total, and, having been a photographer since a young age, got introduced to underwater photography in 2011. Since then I've graduated from an Olympus PEN EPL-1 to an OMD EM5 Mark II, and substituted the crappy Olympus housing with a Nauticam housing purchased right here on Wetpixel, thank you very much! I love underwater photography, and continually strive to take it to the next level!

  5. Red wet mount filter for video. Used with the Olympus PT-EP01 Housing. In good condition, one minor scratch on red filter, few minor scratches outside ring. Not sure how many Olympus housings it fits- you should check online for details of your housing if it is a different housing than mentioned above. Photo available by email, unable to load here. New was about $49, asking $15 plus shipping.
  6. Underwater Zoom Ring (PPZR-EP02) Underwater extension ring for zoom operation with the M.Zuiko ED 9-18mm or M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm II. Fits many PTxx Olympus housings- check the chart on their website to verify. One was used for a short while on the PT-EP13 Olympus Housing for the OMD EM5 Mark II camera. The other was never used- it turned out this zoom ring works for both lenses mentioned above. Olympus Item #260542. $44.99 new. Both zoom rings are in like-new condition. Asking $20 each plus shipping.
  7. New $374.99, and still sold at that price. Has a few tiny water spots. Asking $150.00. Used twice.The dome was originally purchased for the Olympus PT-EP01 housing for the EPL-1 Olympus PEN camera, and fits the PTxx housings up to PT-EP08-11, which as noted above, require an adaptor. Also noted above was that I used it on a PT-EP13 housing, and found instructions to mount by turning clockwise. Instructions available by email. Includes an extra set of o rings.
  8. Zen WA-100 Dome for Olympus Pen E-PL Series & Panasonic 7-14mm Lens This port replaced the flat port on the Olympus Pen Series housings. This will allow you to use the Panasonic Lumix 7-14mm wide lens and maintain the wide coverage. The Zen Underwater WA-100-EP Pen Dome for Olympus PT-EPxx Housings: This optically coated glass dome port offers a distortion free 100° wide angle field of view when used with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm f/4-f/5.6 lens. This is a 25% increase in FOV over the standard Olympus flat port and retains the in-air field of view of the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm f/4-f/5.6 lens and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm f/3.5-f/5.6L lenses. You must use the Zen Underwater port adaptor PA-EP08-EP to use this on the Olympus PT-EP08/11 housings. I have used it on a PT-EP13, turning it counter-clockwise, although it may not be recommended. Please PM me or reply here- I can send photos to your email if not your reply. The photos, nor the instruction document will fit in the upload requirement of less than 0.98mb.
  9. Thanks so much everyone! Nice ideas. Think I'll use the tape and see how it goes. Was worried it would be hard to remove the clip if Gorilla glued and electronics needed replacing....hopefully not! All the best, Divingmama
  10. Does anyone have any idea what type of paste to secure wires in a housing with? The clip in my Nauticam housing seemed to be secured by a paste, and it has come loose. Any ideas out there? Help! Diving mama
  11. Cancelling this post- no longer needed.
  12. Thanks for all your help Davis. Looking forward to receiving the package! Kind regards, Rebecca
  13. Hi Davis, I may be interested. Not sure how to "DM' you. Has the housing flooded? Thanks, Divingmama
  14. Wow, thanks to all who have replied. The only thing I haven't done before is use the Silicone lubricant. It doesn't get into the housing I take it? Olympus suddenly has the housing available again, even though they said they wouldn't, and are offering a new one for $200 less, so I may go for it. They say mine is beyond repair. My first Olympus housing was still good after 6 years (a PT EP01) when I upgraded my camera/housing. The PT EP13- not so lucky. Hope to have better luck with your suggestions, since a Nauticam is 3 times the price. All the best to you. diving mama
  15. You might try asking Pacific Housing Repair. I sent a YS-D1 to them, and it took 5 months go get it back, only to have it leak and short out in the main compartment while in Tahiti a month later. Sent it back a year ago and they still have it. They took the batteries too. Soooo, they may be going out of business or something, and willing to send dead strobes to you. Aloha, Divingmama
  16. Thanks to both of you for your thoughts. Luckily the camera has so far survived the flooding. Amazing, but I worry about further flooding. I'll look into the Nauticam housing. Not happy with Olympus at this point. How do you both like the EM1 Mark II? Aloha, Divingmama
  17. I'm looking to buy an Olympus PT-EP13 Underwater Housing. Please message me if you have one for sale. Thank you, Divingmama
  18. Has anyone tried the Olympus OM-D E-M1X camera? How about underwater? Thanks, Divingmama
  19. I have an Olympus PT-EP13 Underwater Housing for the Olympus OMD EM5 Mark II camera, and the housing has flooded 3 times. The first time I thought it was the Zen wide angle port, and put the stock port back on. Soaked the housing in water and dried the springs, buttons, etc. well. All good for 6 months, then another major housing flood. Soaked and dried again, this time taking off the tiny screws that hold the port glass and cleaning sand off the 2 glass O rings. All good for a couple dives, then small amounts of water intrusion while diving around 80 feet. Took the housing down without the camera after soaking and drying again- no water intrusion. Took it down again without the camera, and there was water intrusion when pushing the buttons. At this point, I don't trust the housing any longer. Olympus already doesn't make the housing any longer and no store carries it. Does anyone have any suggestions? I really don't want to buy another camera and housing set up, and am severely bummed. Thanks, Divingmama
  20. Hi, I'm new to Wetpixel, and have been diving 30 years and taking underwater photos for 10 years. It's been loads of fun, and I enjoy traveling to new places to dive. Unfortunately my Olympus underwater housing keeps flooding, and I'm more than bummed because at this stage in life I don't want to spend thousands on a new camera and housing. Just bought the Olympus OMD EM5 Mark II camera and PT-EP13 housing a year and a half ago, and hoped it would last years. The camera is awesome. If anyone is selling a used PT-EP13 housing, please let me know. Olympus isn't making them anymore. Thanks, Divingmama
