The MDX-EM5 Mark II Underwater Housing from Sea & Sea lets you capture images and video with your Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark ll mirrorless digital camera and Olympus FL-LM3 flash at depths up to 328'. Dual fiber-optic ports enable the connection of optional external strobes via cables, while mechanical controls afford access to all camera functions. Most of the MDX-EM5 housing's levers and buttons glow in low-light conditions for enhanced visibility.

The enclosure is constructed from a corrosion-resistant machined aluminum alloy. The MDX-EM5 comes equipped with a Sea & Sea Optical Viewfinder 0.5x. It ships without a required lens port and accepts optional ML and NX lens ports for various macro and wide-angle zoom lenses. See the system chart for the most complete and up-to-date compatibility information.
