OlympusOlympus underwater housings and accessories : Olympus gears-up for summer with new underwater housings and accessories for its digital cameras - from point-and-shoot to D-SLR (digital single lens reflex). For millions, the peak travel season of June through August means fun in the ocean, lake or pool. Weekend sun worshipers to serious divers can easily capture their adventures beneath the surface (down to depths of 40 meters / approximately 133 feet) using the new Olympus housings. The new Olympus underwater housings and accessories will be available at retailers in June 2007. The new housings - both compact and D-SLRs - are for use in depths down to 40 meters (approximately 133 feet).

New Olympus Underwater Housings and Accessories Include: D-SLR - The new PT-E03 housing is made specifically for Olympus' newly available, portable EVOLT E-410 D-SLR camera. Scuba divers agree that the E-410's full-time Live View LCD makes taking photographs underwater more natural, enabling them to hold the camera away from their face and allowing them to see their vast surroundings. Most other D-SLRs only offer a traditional optical viewfinder - peering through this when wearing a dive mask is extremely cumbersome and offers very limited views. The E-410's housing is compatible with many of the Olympus Zuiko Digital-Specific lenses and their respective underwater lens ports.

Olympus underwater DSLR lenses
Wide angle and macro lenses are the most common for underwater photography. The new PPO-E05 underwater lens port is designed for the lightweight 14-42mm Zuiko Digital-Specific lens, which is the perfect complement to the portable E-410 and its underwater housing when diving. The versatile 14-42mm lens offers the most common focal lengths, including wide angle and close focusing, making it an essential tool for those recreational divers who want to capture images of their explorations. Additionally, all other Olympus PPO Series underwater lens ports (including macro) are compatible with Olympus' E-Series underwater housings.

Olympus digital compact cameras
New underwater housings have been created specifically for Olympus' recently announced point-and-shoot cameras, including the Olympus SP-550 UZ, Olympus Stylus 770 SW, Olympus Stylus 760 and the Olympus FE-230. These cameras also offer underwater scene modes, which when coupled with the underwater housings enable even the most novice photographer to take beautiful underwater images.

Olympus underwater flash
For the first time, Olympus is offering an underwater flash (UFL-1) for use with all new SP and Stylus camera housings introduced in 2007 as well as a majority of its preexisting digital compact camera housings. The new slave flash requires no cables and enables divers to capture stunning images even in the darkest waters.

Olympus underwater accessories
The adjustable float strap, created specifically for the Olympus Stylus SW Series, enables the camera to float at the water's surface and provides surfers, kayakers and other active swimmers with the ability to strap the camera to their arm, freeing their hands when not taking photos. The float strap boasts a vibrant red color for high visibility.

Olympus silicone skins
New silicone skins are also available for the Olympus Stylus 770 SW. While the camera can reach depths of 10 meters (approximately 33 feet) without a skin or housing, the silicone skin provides a variety of stylish looks, offers improved handling in the water and is perfect for avoiding scratches on the camera's body from rocks or other rough surfaces. The new skins are available in three trendy colors: orange, blue and clear.
