Fun -> Nikonos underwater lens adapter for Micro Four Thirds.


I am always keeping an eye on what “jieying-usa” is doing. He is continually making new crazy reworked Lenses and adapters for Micro Four Thirds. As you knwo we don’t have any weather sealed Micro Four Thirds camera or lens. Jieying found the “solution”  :)
He created a new Nikonos to Micro Four Thirds adapter: “Nikonos lens were made for Nikonos underwater use, now I made adapters on M4/3 or NEX camera, it looks very funny and I wrap a plastic bag, although you can’t use underwater but you can use on the beach, swimming poor, also in raining days. Lens removable, so you may use other Nikonos lenses on this adapter.

It’s certainly cool to be able to use underwater lenses on MFT cameras but I hope someone can find a better idea to seal the camera!

      If you do a search for him on DPR you will see that he released his source/circuit diagram because he could not find an easy way to manufacture them for low cost. (Or something like that) It is a very nice design. Too bad.. Maybe he should have contacted dealextreme :)

    To me this looks like a typical gimmicky stuff that is probably nearly useless for any practical use. You might just as well use a PVC shower cap to protect your camera in the rain (as suggested by John Shaw in one of his field books), with nearly the same amount of protection. The bag looks way to fragile for serious applications.

    Note that most Nikonos lens are optically designed for underwater use. They will not work in air.

    The is not for deep water.

      The standard 35mm sold with the Nikonos was not designed for exclusive u/w and can be used in air.
