Description

This diVUser fits the Olympus M.Zuiko ED 60mm f/2.8 lens.  It engages the bayonet mount.  This provides soft, directional lighting for intraoral dental photography.  It is best used with cameras that have a strong pop up flash, such as the Lumix GH4.  It can be used the a Lumix GX9 in conjunction with the FL-200L flash.

 

 

The diVUser is part of the basic four piece Photodontist kit.  This is my favorite for power, consistency and versatility:

  1. Panasonic Lumix GX9
  2. Olympus 60mm macro lens
  3. Panasonic Lumix DMW-FL200L flash
  4. diVUser for the Olympus 60mm macro lens

The step up kit would be:

  1. Panasonic Lumix G9 – a beast of a camera with longer battery life and faster operational speed.
  2. Olympus 60mm macro lens
  3. Panasonic Lumix DMW-FL200L flash
  4. diVUser for the Olympus 60mm macro lens

Some people substitute the GX-85 camera in the above kit; that sacrifices color accuracy (reds are too saturated) but it’s still a very good camera and about half the price of the GX9.  What people don’t consider is that the GX9’s kit lens is superb for weekend shooting, and can even be used in a dental setting.

GX9 super basic kit.  This comes in under $1k, and will work for full arch shots.  A close up filter (about $20-50) may allow for closer shots.

  1. Panasonic Lumix GX9 – use the pop up lens with adjusted settings.
  2. Included 12-60 kit lens
  3. diVUser

 

My hygienist’s favorite kit is:Panasonic Lumix GH4 – a discontinued camera that is still available used.  Color isn’t as faithful as the GX9/G9 generation, but the pop up flash plenty strong for dental shots  and the grip is really secure and comfortable.  It’s not the lightest, but the weight balance is perfect, so it’s less figer strain than the smaller E-PL cameras used in the Blue Sky Bio kit. (which I like, but I am technically competing against).

  2. diVUser for the Olympus 60mm macro lens

 

The teaching professional’s kit for this system would be:

  1. Panasonic Lumix G9 – a beast of a camera with longer battery life and faster operational speed.
  2. Olympus 60mm macro lens
  3. Olympus STF-8 Twin Flash – diffusers are included.  It’s an excellent flash.  Much smaller than the Canon and Nikon equivalents.
  4. A upgraded divuser for the STF-8 flash is under future consideration.  Since the flash is expensive, and users are few, there may not be enough demand to justify a production run.

 

Micro Four Thirds is an open system, so there are many choices in camera bodies.  This product is still under construction.  Please see http://www.vulephoto.com/cameras for more supplemental information.

 

Price breakdown for the diVUser:
$120 for a basic diVUser if your camera’s pop up flash is strong enough on its own.  These are 3d printed out of PETG, the same material used for plastic soda bottles.  It is chemically inert and recyclable.

+$30 if you need the FL-200L flash, which requires a custom extension tube to be printed.
+$150 if you are want a custom logo.  This covers a one time logo setup and proofing fee.  A vector file (eps, ai, svg) or a high resolution bitmap (jpg, png, bmp) is required.  We will contact you by email.  If your logo is unsuitable for 3d printing, your design fee will be refunded.  Complex designs, or ones requiring extensive setup or printing (multi-color, multi-process, etc) may be invoiced an additional fee.
+$10 more if you are printing a custom logo we have already designed for you.  Complex designs, or ones requiring extensive setup or printing (multi-color, multi-process, etc) may be invoiced an additional fee.
