OlympusOlympus underwater camera cases and accessories : Olympus quickly recognised that photographers also want to capture the fascinating world below the water’s surface. Olympus therefore offers underwater cases and accessories for many of its cameras. No matter if it’s a compact model or professional D-SLR, Olympus, the leading manufacturer of underwater cases, has the right solution for everyone. Everybody who has taken photos underwater knows about the conditions. Less available light and the different way that light refracts underwater can make it challenging to achieve good images. It’s recommended to get as close to the subject as possible, which makes wide-angle cameras, such as the new SP-550 UZ, ideal for underwater photography.

The corresponding underwater case PT-037 makes it a snap to go diving. For those who love adventures and the call of the wild, the SP-550 UZ is also ideal on land. It incorporates an 18x zoom lens and Dual Image Stabilisation, making it possible to catch even far-away subjects with ease. Also new from Olympus are the elegant Mju 780 and Mju 760 as well as the entry-model FE-230. With their respective underwater cases, PT-039, PT-036 and PT-038, photographers are geared up for fascinating adventures under the water’s surface.

Waterproof & Shockproof protective case
Since the introduction of the first water and shockproof Mju, the triumph of this range has really been unstoppable. Whether hiking through nature, taking part in extreme sports or on vacation with the family, this Mju is the right choice in any situation. The newest model, the Mju 770 SW, is now waterproof up to 10m, shockproof against falls from up to 1.5m and freezeproof to -10 degrees Celsius. And on top of that it’s also crushproof - capable of taking loads up to 100kg! For divers, Olympus additionally offers the corresponding underwater case PT-035.

Olympus compact cameras
All underwater cases for Olympus compact cameras are waterproof up to 40m depth and fitted with special weights to ensure neutral buoyancy. This enables easy operation of the camera underwater. Each case is also fitted with a removable hood that’s located above the LCD to ensure a clear picture regardless of the lighting conditions. Naturally, cameras also retain their full scope of functions when used inside a case. And for even more shooting flexibility, the cases are equipped with a screw mount for using converter lenses and filters. A TTL underwater flash that’s waterproof up to 40m will be available for all cameras soon. The compact and light slave flash UFL-1 is triggered by the camera’s internal flash. Its 28mm wide-angle allows for even better exposure of underwater pictures.

Olympus E-System cameras underwater cases
Olympus offers underwater cases for various D-SLR cameras of its E-System series. New to the range is the PT-E03 (waterproof up to a depth of 40m) for the E-400 and the E-410 with Live View, which will be available from June. Live View technology lets underwater photographers use the LCD for framing. That means image composition doesn’t have to be done through the diving mask via the viewfinder any more! For the E-330, the first D-SLR that featured Live View, the underwater case PT-E02 (waterproof up to a depth of 60m) is available. And to let users really benefit from all the advantages of digital SLR photography, various E-System lenses can be connected via the corresponding lens ports. Additionally an underwater case for the flash FL-36 is also available. Nature enthusiasts, adventurers and divers alike will find the right equipment from Olympus for capturing their unforgettable experiences in excellent quality - no matter where they are.
