The PT-056 Underwater Housing from Olympus is a compact, lightweight waterproof case enabling you to shoot deeper beneath the surface with their Tough TG-3 Digital Camera. It has a depth rating of 148', improving upon the camera's own depth rating of 49', and is neutrally buoyant. Mechanical controls afford access to all camera functions. The housing is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate for durability, and features a transparent back plate for easy monitoring of the camera and detection of water ingress in the unlikely event of a leak. The supplied fiber-optic cable adapter enables you to attach an optional underwater fiber-optic cable to connect an optional underwater flash unit, which can be triggered by the firing of the camera's built-in flash. Additionally, the housing's flat lens port has a screw mount that allows for the attachment of optional macro and wide-angle conversion lenses. This port is made of multi-coated glass to reduce inner reflections. Also supplied is a detachable hood for the camera's LCD monitor, in order to block unwanted light for better visibility.

Waterproofing
Safe to use at a maximum depth of 148', a significant improvement over the camera's own depth rating of 49'.
Controls and Handling
Mechanical controls provide access to all camera functions. The housing has neutral buoyancy.
Construction Details
Crafted from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate for durability, and features a transparent back plate for easy monitoring of the camera and detection of water ingress in the unlikely event of a leak. Detachable hood for the camera's LCD monitor blocks unwanted light for better visibility.
Lens Port
Flat port accommodates and protects the camera's 25-100mm lens (35mm equivalent). Made of multi-coated glass to reduce inner reflections.
Optional Add-On Lenses
Lens port has a screw mount for the connection of optional macro and wide-angle conversion lenses. Macro lenses will enable clear shots at very close distances, while wide-angle optics will counteract the decrease in coverage that occurs underwater by providing a greater field of view, enabling you to capture more in the frame. Both types of lenses help cut down on distortion caused by the water.
Flash Use
The included fiber-optic cable adapter allows you to attach an optional underwater fiber-optic cable for the connection of an optional, external underwater flash, which can be triggered by the firing of the camera's built-in flash.
Mounting
Standard 1/4"-20 tripod mount permits attachment to an optional tray with grips for better balance and handling and mounting points for optional lighting arms.
