Product features

The 「Front Pot Flat 5」 is a front port to use Olympus『M. ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II R』 zoom lens (*2) in combination with the 「MRS Base Port」. The port edge has M67 screw mount to attach various conversion lenses below to support from macro to ultra wide imaging by changing lens underwater to suit to different subject.
・UWL-H100 28M67 Type2
・Dome Lens Unit II for UWL-H100 + UWL-H100 28M67 Type2
・UFL-M150 ZM80

For macro imaging, 「UCL-330」 and high power 「UCL-165M67」 close-up lens are compatible to get closer to a subject. (*3)
For wide imaging, 「UWL-H100 28M67 Type2」 is compatible and its super wide option 「Dome Lens Unit II for UWL-H100」 further increases view angle for ultra wide imaging. (*4)
The 「UFL-M150 ZM80」 underwater micro fish-eye lens is also usable to capture underwater scenery through eyes of small fish to depict distinctively only with this lens. (*5)

The 「MRS Magnet Ring MZ14-42 Set」 is a set of 「MRS Magnet Ring」 and 「MRS Magnet Ring MZ14-42 Adapter」 to attach on the Olympus 『M. ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II R』 zoom lens for zoom operation.

Zooming operation uses INON patented「MRS (Magnetic Rotary System) Port」using magnetic attraction to turn lens barrel with light torque as like controlling a lens on land.
The MRS Magnet Ring is also usable for other MRS Magnet Ring Adapters to use for other lenses only with optional MRS Magnet Ring Adapter.
