Ikelite 6951.08 200DLM/A Underwater Housing for Olympus PEN E-PL8 Mirrorless Micro Four-Thirds Digital Camera
A full featured and durable waterproof housing for Olympus PEN E-PL8 mirrorless micro four-thirds cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
The camera mount is front-loading for easy installation and removal. A small mounting plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and secures in the front of the housing. The camera mounting plate does not need to be removed from the camera for surface use or when changing the battery or memory cards. The mounting plate features a 1/4-20 threaded mount on the bottom so that it can be attached to a tripod on the surface.
The camera's large, super-bright LCD screen is viewable edge-to-edge through the back of the housing.
An integrated TTL circuit is fine-tuned to the Olympus PEN E-PL8 flash exposure protocol for the most accurate exposure possible. The circuit is powered by the strobe for zero maintenance and no batteries to change.
The Olympus PEN E-PL8 camera does not feature a built-in flash. Triggering of fiber optic strobes is not supported at this time. A strobe must be connected by electrical sync cord.
Two 1/4-20 threaded mounting points are included on the bottom of the housing for the attachment of a tray and handle system. Handles provide improved ergonomics underwater and are the foundation for your lighting mounts.
The new white ABS-PC blend housing provides strength and corrosion free performance year with minimal maintenance. The specially formulated color deflects the sun to keep your camera running cooler, longer.
A spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port is provided on the side of the housing for easily installation of the optional Vacuum Kit # 47012. A vacuum kit allows you to pressurize the housing to check for proper assembly prior to entering the water.
This housing accepts a variety of ports from our DLM Port System to accommodate all of the most popular zoom, macro, and wide angle lenses. The custom optical grade acrylic domes components provide the color, clarity, and durability of glass at a fraction of the travel weight and cost.
This housing requires the addition of a compatible lens port for waterproof operation. Lens port not included.
