Olympus PT-EP01 Underwater Case for the OLYMPUS PEN E-PL1

Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
The world's first waterproof housing for a Micro Four Thirds System camera; significantly lighter and more compact than conventional SLR camera waterproof housings. Enables high-quality underwater photographs.

Product Summary:

The 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 PT-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 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 E-PL1.

  • Waterproof up to 40m
  • Front cover and back cover, locked by a rotary buckle
  • Two optical fiber connectors
  • Monitoring window to detect water penetration

Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easily Loaded Equipment, Easy to use, Big buttons, Strong Construction, Warranty, Camera fits perfectly, Lightweight, Seals Easily
Cons: No focus ring included, No dome port available, Expensive, No internal flash
Other Comments: Well constructed and fits camera perfectly. The internal flash must be up before sealing or the external flash will not work. There is no dome port available. Only two of the EPL lenses work with this housing 9-18 and 14-42. NOTE: you must buy the focus ring separately or the telephoto function does not work. This was not in the housing description.
