Overview
  • 1Description

The AE-M1 Underwater Housing from Aquatica is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Olympus OM-D E-M1 Digital Camera. It has a depth rating of 295' and is equipped with a moisture alarm/pressure sensor to alert you in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal. Mechanical controls, including push-buttons, levers and knobs, provide easy access to all camera functions except the one-touch white balance and preview buttons, and both of these functions can be reassigned to accessible controls. Dual ergonomic grips afford optimal handling and comfort. For convenience, vital functions can be accessed while keeping your hands on the grips.

The housing is made of lightweight aluminum, which has been anodized to military specifications and treated with a baked-on layer of powder-coated paint to ensure superior corrosion resistance. Control shafts and push-buttons are crafted from stainless steel. The AE-M1 ships without a required lens port, though various interchangeable dome and flat ports are available for an array of Micro Four Thirds wide-angle, macro, and zoom lenses (see Port Chart.) Additionally, the housing has dual optical connectors for the attachment of optional external strobes via sync cords, which are available separately. There is also a standard eyepiece supplied for the camera's viewfinder.

Waterproofing
Features a depth rating of 295'. The moisture alarm with integrated atmospheric pressure sensor allows you to confirm watertight integrity before the dive, and alerts you in the unlikely event of water ingress--helping to prevent damage to your valuable camera and lens.
Controls and Handling
Mechanical controls, including push-buttons, levers, and knobs, provide easy access to all camera functions except the one-touch white balance and preview buttons, and both of these functions can be reassigned to accessible controls. Dual ergonomic grips afford optimal handling and comfort. For convenience, vital functions can be accessed while keeping your hands on the grips.
Construction Details
Built for durability, housing is made of lightweight aluminum, which has been anodized to military specifications and treated with a baked-on layer of powder-coated paint to ensure superior corrosion resistance. Control shafts and push-buttons are constructed from stainless steel.
Lens Port
Ships without a required lens port, though various interchangeable dome and flat ports are available for an array of Micro Four Thirds wide-angle, macro and zoom lenses. See the port chart linked above. A comprehensive selection of focus and zoom gears for lenses is also available.
External Strobe and Light Use
The housing has dual optical connectors for the attachment of optional external strobes via sync cords, which must be purchased separately. Manual and S-TTL exposure control are available. Aquatica's strobe connectors are user-serviceable and quickly replaceable, without any special tools.
Viewfinder Eyepiece
