(*1)
Contact Olympus Imaging Corp. for detail of camera/protector. INON Inc. confirms product compatibility based on a camera/protector available in Japan.

(*2)
Usable only when built-in flash of the E-M1 is set to “Fill-in flash”.
INON strobe is not compatible with Olympus “wireless RC flash system”.

(*3)
When using S-2000/Z-240/D-2000 in “Manual” or “External Auto” mode, set Advanced Cancel Circuit to OFF and set camera’s flash mode to “Manual”. Using “Fill-in flash” of the camera limits operation of S-2000/Z-240/D-2000 in “Manual” mode when selected flash output is beyond -1.5 E.V. or in “External Auto” when actual flash output is beyond -1.5 E.V.

(*4)
Olympus PT-EP11 has fiber optics adapters for underwater use and above listed INON fiber optics product is directly plugged in the adapter.


■ Lens System Compatibility with E-M1/PT-EP11 (*1) ■

By using combination of dedicated lens port PPO-EP01 and macro lens adapter PMLA-EP01 for the PT-EP11, below listed INON attachment lenses are usable. (*5)

A wide conversion lens is not compatible due to camera lens specification.

(*6)
In combination with zoom lenses except for "M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 60mm F2.8 Macro", zoom setting from wide end to middle both on land and underwater will have vignetting on image corners. If this is the case, zoom towards to telephoto side until no vignetting is observed.

(*7)

(*8)
Optional "M27-M67 Mount Converter for UFL-M150 ZM80" is required.


■ Lens Port System Compatibility with E-M1/PT-EP11 (*1) ■

Attaching the "Four Thirds Adapter MMF-3" on the E-M1, "Port Adapter PAD-EP08" and "Port Extension Ring PER-E01" on the PT-EP11 enables to use "ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 8mm F3.5 Fisheye" or "ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 50mm F2.0 Macro" in INON E-SYSTEM port.

■ Arm System Compatibility with E-M1/PT-EP11 (*1) ■

・Grip Base M1
--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 605 3

・D Holder
--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 431 8

--JAN code: 456212143 430 1


The “Grip Base M1” is a base arm specifically designed for midsize underwater housing like micro four thirds digital SLR. The “Grip Base M1” is firmly attached on a housing with two tripod screws and equipped legs on the base provide stable placement of combined housing. Wide variety of INON adapters/bases is compatible with the “Grip Base M1” and easy to set-up multiple lighting system with dual strobe configuration by attaching extra “D Holder”. 

The compact light arm “Shoe Base” is directly attached on the housing accessory shoe.

(*16)
The “D Holder” of the “Grip Base D4” is for left side use only. When attaching on the right hand side of the housing, space between the D Holder and housing becomes extremely narrow and prevents you to hold the housing directly.
