A complete E-P1/2 underwater solution.

A 43rumors reader sent me this picture he of a new underwater housing he made for himself! Inside the massive case he uses the Olympus E-P1. He also bought the new Nikonos to MFT adapter which is available at eBay (Click here) and put the famous Nikonos underwater lenses on it! Nice job!

    That looks like a fun hack. Right now, I’m in the second generation of disguising the cameras as an old fashioned bellows view camera (first generation was putting the E-P2/14-42mm lens inside of an existing Kodak Pony Premo 5×7 body from around 1915, and the second generation is building the shell to house my E-3/14-54mm lens). I need to get it to the stage of being usable before next week’s science fiction convention (Arisia).

    I’ve been thinking that after I get generation 2 done, to encompass a sound blimp in the next design to silence the shutter, possibly adding servos to be able to zoom the lens. Maybe I should add weather sealing also for the E-P2 shell, so it can play in the rain just like the E-3.

  • looks like it makes coffee

      Then for E-PL2 they will add hot chocolate capabilities? It’s a shame you can’t use the Macro arm light with this one…would be nice to check out in detail if your coffee is ready.. :P.
