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.
