This Olympus PT-EP01 Underwater Housing is for the Olympus E-PL1 digital camera.

The o-ring main seal along with the secure rotary buckle closure will keep your camera dry.

Using an external flash will bring back the natural color that is lost underwater. Built-in dual fiber optic cable ports allow you to fire 2 Olympus UFL-2 or Sea & Sea underwater strobes with fiber optic cables when the on-camera flash fires. The Olympus UFL-2 power can be controlled remotely from the back of the camera.
