|Olympus continues to innovate with their line of compact, affordable, and very capable Micro Four Thirds Pen cameras. In conjunction Olympus offers corresponding PT-EP01, PT-EP02, PT-EP03, PT-EP05L and PT-EP06 housings for this line.|
These products in combination offer the least expensive interchangeable lens camera systems ever offered to underwater photographers. This mirror-less Micro-Four Thirds camera line features DSLR performance in a compact camera form factor.
|The biggest drawback to the PT-EPxx housing is the standard flat port included with the housing. Wide angle lenses behind flat ports (such as the stock flat port supplied with PT-EPxx) exhibit refractive magnification, radial distortion, and chromatic aberration.|
Zen Underwater addresses these problems with their new WA-100 dome port for PT-EPxx housings. This optically coated glass dome port offers a distortion free 100° wide angle field of view when used with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm f/4-f/5.6 lens. This is a 25% increase in FOV over the standard Olympus flat port and retains the in-air field of view of the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9–18mm f/4–f/5.6 lens and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14–42mm f/3.5–f/5.6L lenses.
