Capture the beauty, mystery, and variety of the world beneath the sea at depths up to 147', thanks to this E-M5 Mark II Digital Camera Underwater Bundle with 9-18mm Lens, and PT-EP13 Housing from Olympus. This package bundles the OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds digital camera body, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 Lens, the dedicated PT-EP13 Underwater Housing with lens port, and the PPZR-EP02 Zoom Gear--giving you everything you need to begin your underwater adventures.
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera features a 16MP Live MOS image sensor and TruePic VII processor, which combine to deliver high-resolution stills, Full HD 1080p video, continuous shooting at 10 fps, and low-light sensitivity to ISO 25600. A built-in feature uses sensor shift to produce a 40MP image by combining 8 shots in-camera. The E-M5 Mark II is also equipped with a 2360k-dot, 1.48x EVF and a 3.0", 1,037k-dot, vari-angle touchscreen OLED monitor. It utilizes a 5-axis VCM image stabilization system that provides up to 5 stops of compensation. To help illuminate your subjects, the camera includes the FL-LM3 Flash unit, offering TTL functionality, a guide number of 30' at ISO 100, and tilt/rotate capabilities for bounce effects. Additionally, the Mark II's built-in Wi-Fi allows for fast, easy image sharing with linked mobile devices.
With the M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 Lens, you can benefit from very wide-angle shots without adding much weight or size to your camera system. This compact zoom offers a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 18-36mm and a 100° angle of view. A Dual Super Aspherical objective element at the front enables such wide coverage, while dual aspherical elements at the rear correct aberrations for higher image quality. The lens has a minimum working distance of just 6.0", making it possible to capture dramatic, wide-angle macro images. All lens elements are multi-coated to ensure maximum light transmission and image clarity, with minimal ghosting and flare. The inner focusing mechanism uses a light, compact, single-element unit to enable exceptionally fast, quiet autofocusing, and the manual focusing mechanism offers a responsive feel with just the right amount of resistance.
Enabling your camera to journey beneath the waves is the PT-EP13 Underwater Housing, which is configured with dual fiber-optic cable ports for connecting optional external strobes. 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 accessories such as flashes and lighting arms. Mechanical controls afford access to all camera functions. Built for durability, the PT-EP13 is made from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate. It includes the PPO-EP01 lens port for 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. An optional port adapter enables the use of other ports for different lenses. The housing's clear back lets you monitor the O-ring seal and gives you a full view of the camera's display. Additionally, the enclosure features an optical viewfinder.
