This Olympus PT-EP01 Underwater Housing is for the Olympus E-PL1 digital camera. It is a stylish and durable polycarbonate housing for anyone looking to pursue underwater digital photography with the flexibility and quality of a Micro Four Thirds camera. This compact lightweight housing allows you to use your digital camera as you explore your underwater surroundings at depths down to 131' (40m).

The o-ring main seal along with the secure rotary buckle closure will keep your camera dry. The housing allows you to use the Olympus E-PL1's LCD screen to view and compose your images, but the housing also allows use of the optional electronic viewfinder VF-2. The durable o-ring sealed controls give you access to everything the Olympus E-PL1 has to offer.

Using an external flash will bring back the natural color that is lost underwater. Built-in dual fiber optic cable ports allow you to fire 2 Olympus UFL-2 or Sea & Sea underwater strobes with fiber optic cables when the on-camera flash fires. The Olympus UFL-2 power can be controlled remotely from the back of the camera.

The PT-EP01 has a fix lens port that supports the use of the Zuiko ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 and the Zuiko ED 9-18mm f/5.6 lenses. The PT-EP01 offers the use of a macro lens adapter PMLA-EP01 to attach the macro lens PTMC-01 for close-up photography.
