OlympusOlympus PEN PL1 underwater photo shoot : Olympus announces the introduction of the Olympus PT-EP01 underwater case for the Olympus PEN E-PL1 Micro Four Thirds System camera. The Olympus underwater housing enables truly high-quality underwater photography with compact camera ease, and available immediate. The PT-EP01 Water Protector maximizes the compact and lightweight design advantages that are inherent to the Micro Four Thirds System standard. Measuring 179 x 156 x 166mm (W x H x D) and weighing approximately 1100g, it is noticeably more compact than, and weighs only about half as much as, 2079g of the PT-E06 Water Protector and PPO-E05 Standard Lens Port needed for an underwater photo shoot with a Olympus E-620 digital SLR.

Underwater photo shoot with Olympus PEN PL1
The world's first waterproof housing for a Micro Four Thirds System camera; significantly lighter and more compact than conventional SLR camera waterproof housings (weight reduced by 47% to 1100g). The Olympus PT-EP01 Water Protector features a fixed lens port and can accommodate an Olympus PEN E-PL1 camera fitted with an M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm f3.5–5.6L or M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm f4.0-5.6 lens. The lens port assures uncompromising image quality by using multi-coated glass to suppress internal reflection. All accessories are needed to prepare for an underwater photo shoot with the Olympus PL1.

Take the Olympus PL1 to a depth of 40 meters for an underwater shoot
Enable high-quality underwater photography with ease by using the Underwater Macro and Underwater Wide scene program modes on the Olympus PEN E-PL1. The new Olympus underwater case supports the Olympus Wireless Remote Control Flash System using the UFL-2 dedicated underwater flash unit. The Olympus PT-EP01 Water Protector for the Olympus PEN E-PL1 is the first waterproof housing to be created for a Micro Four Thirds System camera, and offers waterproof integrity to depths of up to 40 meters to make an underwater shoot.

Micro Four Thirds System takes photo shooting underwater
Making the most of the inherent Micro Four Thirds System advantage in compact, lightweight design, the PT-EP01 Water Protector is significantly lighter and more compact than conventional SLR camera waterproof housings of the past. In addition, it allows users to easily enjoy underwater photography by taking advantage of the Olympus PEN E-PL1's Underwater Macro and Underwater Wide shooting modes. Optical connectors also allow the use of up to two UFL-2 Underwater Flash units for off-camera illumination.

Wireless Remote Control Flash increases quality of underwater photo shoot
The underwater photo shoot can be composed on the LCD monitor with the same ease as with a waterproof compact camera, but the protector can also accommodate the optional VF-2 Live Viewfinder, enabling users to choose the shooting style they prefer. The Olympus PT-EP01 Water Protector allows users to take advantage of the Olympus PEN E-PL1 camera's Underwater Macro and Underwater Wide shooting modes, which ensure vivid and natural color with rich blue tones when shooting underwater. The Olympus PT-EP01 Water Protector supports the Olympus Wireless Remote Control Flash System, enabling the Olympus E-PL1 camera's built-in flash to be used as the command unit for advanced multi-flash setups. Optical connectors are provided for up to two UFL-2 dedicated underwater flash units, with full control of flash mode and brightness settings accessible via the camera's LCD monitor when shooting underwater.

Olympus PT-EP01 underwater case
The Olympus PT-EP01 underwater case has been especially customized for one camera of the PEN family, the E-PL1. It is the world’s first waterproof housing for a Micro Four Thirds camera. The extreme light weight Olympus EP01 (only approximately 1100g, just half as much as the PT-E06) is waterproof up to a water pressure equivalent to a depth of 40 meters. As a genuine advantage to the underwater photographer, you can make use of the Live View function on the one hand, but it is also possible to attach the electronic Viewfinder to the Olympus E-PL1 and use it underwater.

Additionally the PT-EP01 has a small, but very important feature at the backside cover. The back is semitransparent and has a further monitoring window just below the LCD window, which allows you to detect any water leakage before having serious material damage. The PT-EP01 has a fix lens port and supports the use of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 and the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm 1:4.0-5.6. Besides the possible flash connection the PT-EP01 offers the use of a macro lens adapter (PMLA-EP01) to attach the macro lens (PTMC-01) for special macro photography. The high quality underwater photography is additionally strengthened through the underwater macro and underwater wide shooting modes of the Olympus PEN E-PL1.
