The Olympus PT-EP10 Underwater Housing For E-PL5 Digital Camera is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the water's surface with your Olympus E-PL5 interchangeable-lens camera. It has a depth rating of 147.6' (45 m).
The housing provides access to all essential camera functions via mechanical controls. The camera's removable flash is usable, and the PT-EP10 comes with a large diffuser to soften the light of the flash, thus preventing harsh light from falling on your subject and hard shadows from being created. Since the camera's flash features wireless flash control, the UFL-2 Underwater Flash can be fired along with it.
The housing's integrated lens port accommodates the following M.ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses: 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II, 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IIR, ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro, 45mm f/1.8, and ED 75mm f/1.8. You can also attach the PTWC-01 Underwater Wide Conversion Lens or PTMC-01 Underwater Macro Conversion Lens to the port. Wide-angle lenses increase your angle of coverage, allowing you to get close to your subject while fitting more in the frame. Macro lenses will enable extreme close-up shots. Both types of lenses cut down on distortion caused by the water, thus improving image quality.
The underwater white balance control function helps to correct for the blue filter effect created by the water, nearly eliminating blue color cast in your images and videos.
For attaching accessories such as lighting arms, there is a cold shoe mount located on the top of the housing.
