Angle Finder Adaptor for OMDS OM-1 available!

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.

New Finder Adapters available

Varimagni Adapter E-M1
Olympus angle finders and adapters.

I overhauled the adapters for angle finders and eyecups. They now have a better fit on the cameras.

In addition to the previously existing adapters, I added a new one that allows to mount the old OM Varimagni angle finder to OM-D E-M5 II, E-M5 III, E-M10 II und EM10 III.

Adapter for the Olympus Varimagni angle finder

Angle finder adapters for the E-M1 family.

I got an Olympus Varimagni angle finder (the old OM system one, from the 70ies) to take measurements. I designed an adapter to mount it on the E-M1 family cameras.

Here you see the Olympus Varimagni (left) and the Olympus VA-1 (right), both with E-M1 family adapters.
