    I recently received my PT-EP14 to pair with my EM1 and I have trouble getting the front control dial on the camera to turn. Is this typical, or a problem with the housing that I received? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    The front dial is for the zoom or focus ring, and yes is difficult to match the position so it works properly.
    What lens are you using ?

    Regards,
    Pedro

    Pedro, thanks for the response. I am referencing the control wheel on the right, that controls the front camera dial (EV or Apeture/Shutter speed).... The one on the left, for the zoom or focus, is working fine. I am working with the 60 Macro and the 8mm Fisheye.

    When setup in either A mode or M mode, I am unable to consistently use the front right dial to make adjustments. Trying to decide if this is a defect with my housing or just a common problem.

    Thanks for the help,

    Glenn

    Does it just spin like it isn't making contact with the camera? I had an issue(or so I thought) with my point and shoot doing that. Turned out that at depth the was enough pressure on the dial to make it contact the camera inside. After a few dives it would work top side(???). Hopefully it will be something simple.

    That is exactly the issue... I have not been deep enough with it to know if pressure will fix things. Hoping so. Thanks for the response. I will get out with it again in a week and see how it does. Slightly deeper dive, although where I am right now, nothing is deeper than 40’. Bahamas in a couple of weeks. In the end, I wish I had just sprung for the Nauticam housing. I knew better, but let the initial lower cost point sway me. this setup will get me through the winter but I will replace everything this summer. Thanks for the response
