  • Grip Base M1
    --available in the market
    --JAN code : 456212143 605 3

    --available in the market

    The INON 「Grip Base M1」 is usable. The Grip Base M1 is specifically designed for midsize underwater housing for micro four thirds digital SLR. Firmly attached on a housing with two tripod screws and base legs 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 INON 「Shoe Base」 is directly attached on the accessory-shoe of the underwater housing to set up compact system.

    (*4)
    When attaching strobe/LED flashlight only on the underwater housing hot-shoe via 「Shoe Base」,
    camera system will have positive buoyancy at 10g/0.4oz. So using optional balance weight from camera manufacture would be recommended to get negative buoyancy for the sake of safety.

    (*5)
    The 「D Holder」 of the 「Grip Base D4」 is for left side use only.  When attaching on the right hand side of the housing, the D Holder part may be touched on the back of your right hand.
