Olympus PT-EP05L Underwater Housing for the E-PL3

Specially customized for the E-PL3, the new lightweight PT-EP05L underwater case is waterproof up to a depth of 45 meters. It launches with a powerful new feature: The “Target Light”, which is built in to the lens port and produces spotlighting that is targeted directly at close-up subjects - making it the new best friend for underwater Macro photographers venturing down to the dark depths. Yet another bright idea in the new PT-EP05L is the bundled diffuser, which works to soften the light of the camera flash (FL-LM1). Its high-quality polycarbonate design and engineering seals cameras completely from any trace of moisture, as well as cushioning the sensitive equipment from knocks and bumps on land. For fans of wide-angle photography, there is also a wide conversion lens available, which attaches to the front of the lens port.

  • M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm II f3.5-5.6
  • M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm II R f3.5-5.6
  • Waterproof up to 45m
  • Target Light ideal for macro photography

Wide Angle Underwater Photography

For wider-angle underwater photography with this camera and housing, add an external wide angle lens.  The Inon UWL-H100 28M67 Type 2 is an excellent performer.

Wide angle performance will be further enhanced with the addtion of the Inon Dome Unit II to the UWL-H100, though vignetting will occur at the widest setting of zoom in the E-PL3.

Macro-Photography Underwater

Get closer to your subjects when shooting macro-photography by adding the Inon UCL-165M67 Close-up Lens.

Use with other lenses:

Add a Zen Underwater Port for outstanding, distortion free, images with the 'in air' field of view that your lens was designed for.

Zen Underwater Ports:

The Zen Underwater DP100 for the Panasonic 8mm lens is not compatible with this housing due to interference from the Olympus Port Light button.
