I already received a number of requests for an adaptor to mount angle finders onto the OM-1.
I therefore designed a set of adaptors for the Olympus VA-1, the Seagull universal angle finder and the old Olympus Varimagni angle finder.
I printed a prototype for a first test and mounted a VA-1 angle finder onto an OM-1. Thanks to Reinhard Wagner for assisting in measuring the camera and testing the adaptor.
Serial production of these adaptors requires high precision 3D printing, available only on high grade industrial printers. I therefore uploaded the designs to Shapeways. You may order adaptors through my webshop at Shapeways.
It’s hard to find an Olympus VA-1 angle finder. Therefore, I did some research to find an alternative. The Seagull universal angle finder hits the bill. It is available, reasonable priced and it got a mount for adaptors. In addition to the large number of adapters that are already shipped with the angle finder, I developped three more.
