Dive to 147' to capture photos and videos of sea life and environments with your TG-850, TG-860, or TG-870 digital camera in this Olympus PT-057 Underwater Housing. The bundled PFCA-01 Fiber Optic Cable Adapter features a built-in port for connecting an optional fiber-optic cable, which enables the attachment of optional external flash units. Mechanical controls afford access to all camera functions.

Built for durability, the housing is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is partially clear in the back to allow you to monitor the waterproof O-ring seal. Additionally, the enclosure has a built-in lens port with a flat front element. It is also equipped with a cold shoe mount on top for the connection of optional lighting arms or other accessories. An LCD monitor hood and a protective port cap are included.

    PT-057 Underwater Housing for TG-850, TG-860, or TG-870 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improvements to the housing from the 610 version I've been using a previous version with tough 610 here at our dive business, Aqua Adventures in mexico for 3 years. We've upgraded and have the 860 in this housing. I like the fact that I can now turn the flash on and off with fewer button pushes and the new control for zoom is much easier and more intuitive than the buttons on the previous version. Great improvements to an already great housing

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Olympus PT-057 Underwater Housing Great housing with easy to use function keys that are big enough to use with gloves on. Yet housing not to big. The housing also comes with a lot of other attachments you can purchase depending on your level of skills. Great price as well.
