Angle Finder Adaptor for OMDS OM-1 available!

OM-1 mit VA-1 Winkelsucher
OM-1 with VA-1 angle finder

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.

More information about the adaptors may be found on my angle finder pages.

Eyepiece and angle finder adapter for OM-D E-M1 X available!

Adapter for using Canon 22mm view finder acessories on OM-D E-M1, E-M1 ii or E-M1 X.

Good news!

Both adapters for eyepiece and angle finders for the E-M1 or E-M1 II will also fit the E-M1 X. The already existing adapter designs will fit on the new camera.

VA-1 adapter for the OM-D E-M5 II available!

The VA-1 angle finder mounted on the OM-D E-M5 II

I got the first production grade adapter to mount teh VA-1 angle finder on the OM-D E-M5 II. It fits well and the visibility of the view finder is good. I have no experience yet, how the material will stand over time and usage. I used (first time) selective laser sintering (SLS) as production method for this kind of adapter.

With this adapter, the VA-1 may be mounted to yet another type of camera body.

You may order the adapter directly through my Shapeways web shop.
