- Olympus PT-EP13 Underwater Housing for the E-M5 Mark II Digital Camera
Made of high-quality black polycarbonate, the Olympus PT-EP13 Underwater Housing for the E-M5 Mark II allows the said camera to be waterproof for up to 45 metres of water pressure. Meanwhile, the multi-coated flat lens port reduces inner reflections and is usable with the screw mount for additional lenses and filters to attain various photographic effects. Camera flashes, brackets, and accessory trays can also be attached through the cold shoe and tripod mounts. Speaking of flash, the case has a built-in flash for better image lighting. Using multiple strobes is also possible through the dual fiber optic cable ports. For improved visibility, you can use the monitor hood to block away stray light and the removable optical viewfinder to peek at the E-M5 Mark II's electronic viewfinder even if you are wearing a diving mask. To prevent possible leaks, this housing also comes with a transparent back plate that monitors water ingress. As this underwater case gives mechanical access to the camera's controls via the large external buttons, it also comes with dual fiber optic cable ports for wired connections. This casing is assigned with product code V6300630A000.
Product Features in Detail
The deal with polycarbonate
A naturally transparent element, polycarbonate can transmit light as good as glass. Aside from being durable and heat resistant, this material is known for its superb color stability. These elements help add to the vibrance and the quality of each picture that you take.
The PT-E13's integrated lens port is suitable for the following M.Zuiko Digital Lenses: ED 9-18mm f/4-5.6, ED 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3, 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 (including II and IIR versions), 45mm f/1.8, 60mm f/2.8, and the ED 75mm f/1.8.
Don't screw up with this mount
There are limitless combinations that you can attach to the built-in screw mount. You can select from a number of compatible filters that you use to add vibrance and colour to every image. You can combine these with the PTMC-01 Underwater Macro Conversion Lens for close-up shots or the PTWC-01 Underwater Wide Conversion Lens for improved panoramic coverage.
Underwater colour correction
The housing's white balance control capability helps in correcting the blue filter caused by the water. This function eliminates the blue hue that may dominate in your photos and videos.
Flash details on the flash
Aside from it giving additional brightness, the case's built-in flash can also be used to trigger external flash units such as the UFL-3 granted that they are connected to the dual fiber optic cables. To soften its intensity, place the PTDP-EP13 diffuser in front of the flash window.
The PT-EP13 has neutral buoyancy for easier handling and balancing of the entire set-up underwater, especially with increased water pressure.
