Olympus PT-EP13 overview

  • 1Description

Capture images and video beneath the surface with your OM-D E-M5 Mark II Micro Four Thirds camera in this Olympus PT-EP13 Underwater Housing, which has a depth rating of 147'. Dual fiber-optic cable ports enable the connection of optional external flash units. The housing allows you to use the shoe-mount flash bundled with the camera to trigger these external units. It is also equipped with a shoe mount of its own for connecting accessories such as flashes and lighting arms. Mechanical controls afford access to all camera functions except the DOF preview on the front.

Built for durability, the PT-EP13 is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate. Its integrated flat lens port fits the M.Zuiko 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6, 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 I / II / IIR, 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 EZ, 45mm f/1.8, 60mm f/2.8 Macro, and 75mm f/1.8 lenses. The port is meant to stay attached to the housing, but can be removed if you loosen the screws holding it in place. An optional port from AOI could then be mounted to allow for the use of different lenses. See System Chart.

The housing's clear back lets you monitor the O-ring seal and gives you a full view of the camera's display screen. Additionally, the waterproof enclosure features an optical viewfinder as another method of shot composition.
