The E-330 goes underwater
In reply to CollBaxter, Jan 16, 2013

A lot of you probably don't know that Olympus makes a lot of good DSLR cameras that can be taken underwater. Here's one I shot on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico a couple of years ago. It's a freshwater cave that eventually meets ocean water as the underground river moves through the limestone shelf. Here's the shot taken with the E-330 and 7-14 mm lens. I actually didn't click the lens all the way on the lens mount on this dive but it functioned anyway, with limited aperture and manual focus control.

This is what I look like when I'm diving with the E-330 in an Ikelite underwater housing. This is a friend but my rig looks about the same. From the oil rigs of So Cal. E-330 and 8 mm f/3.5 fish eye lens.
