Olympus Imaging Corporation is pleased to announce the PT-E01 underwater case for the E-300 interchangeable lens single-lens reflex camera. The PT-E01 is a genuine Olympus accessory for use with the E-300 and can be combined with Olympus brand underwater lens ports for various ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses to create a system suitable for professional underwater photography. The PT-E01 will go on sale in June 2005, together with the PPO-E01, PPO-E02 and PPO-E03 underwater lens ports for use with ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses and the PFL-E01 underwater case for the FL-36 external flash unit.
These underwater cases for the E-300 and the FL-36 and underwater lens ports for ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses together form an underwater digital SLR camera system capable of withstanding the water pressure at a depth of 60m. The professional-class specifications of these products make them ideal for professional underwater photography.
Designed for use with the E-300, the PT-E01 underwater case can be combined with underwater lens ports (PPO-E01, PPO-E02, PPO-E03) for underwater photography using four types of exchangeable lenses (ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-45mm (28-90mm) F3.5-5.6, ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-54mm (28-108mm) F2.8-3.5, ZUIKO DIGITAL 11-22mm (22-44mm) F2.8-3.5, ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 50mm (100mm) F2.0 Macro). This system supports underwater photography using a variety of field angles to take full advantage of the superb image quality of the E-300 digital SLR with its effective resolution of 8 megapixels.
The PFL-E01, an underwater case for use with the FL-36 external flash unit, adds high-intensity underwater TTL flash photography to the system’s capabilities.
Also available is the PER-E01 extension ring for the EC-14 teleconverter, which can be used with all underwater lens ports for exchangeable lenses. This allows the focal length of the lens attached to the camera to be increased 1.4 times for underwater photography. Another useful accessory is the PTBK-E01 bracket for easier underwater handling.
