Olympus PT-048 Features & Specifications
The Olympus PT-048 is a stylish and durable polycarbonate housing for the Olympus Stylus Tough 6020 and Tough 8010 digital cameras. The housing is for anyone looking to pursue underwater digital photography. This durable housing provides an attractive shield for your digital camera as you explore your underwater surroundings at depths up to 131′ (40m). A tight O-ring main seal, along with the rotary buckle closure system, helps keep your camera safe.
The housing gives you full control over your camera. It features a large, responsive shutter button, precision zoom lever, and durable controls so you can take advantage of everything your Olympus digital camera has to offer.
An integrated flash diffuser panel lets you utilize your camera’s internal flash for lighting purposes. For professional results, you can also use the internal flash to trigger a slaved external strobe like those made by Olympus, Sea & Sea, Ikelite, Sealife or Fantasea.
The port of the PT-048 housing accepts the threads of a 52mm wide-angle conversion lens. This will increase the angle of view so you can get much closer to your subject while fitting everything in the frame. By reducing the amount of water between the subject and your camera lens, the resulting image will be crisp and colorful.
