Press Release

Whether you’re swimming with dolphins or checking out beautiful coral displays on The Great Barrier Reef, you’ll be able to capture all your memories thanks to the newest underwater housings from Olympus this summer.

Olympus now offers the best way to explore and shoot the wonders of the underwater world. The powerful combination of the new range of Olympus Compact Digital cameras, the professional Digital SLR range and an underwater housing to fit each one will have you discovering the beauty of underwater photography in no time.

From snorkeller to scuba diver, Olympus has you truly covered, allowing you to take spectacular photos from three metres for the point and shoot range, 40 metres for the premium choice range and an incredible 60 metres for the digital SLR range.

Continuing its association with the world’s leading dive industry body, PADI, to provide the photographic equipment for all of their accredited dive courses, this summer, Olympus will be encouraging consumers to get off terra firma and step away from ‘traditional’ photography and go below the surface.

If you’re a fan of this summer’s popular hard-wearing camera, the Olympus Mju Tough 725SW, then clip on the PT-033 housing. With your camera already built to take depths of five metres, you can make your Mju 725SW even tougher by taking it down to up to 40 metres.

If you own a Mju 740 or Mju 750, you’ll also be able to join the party this summer thanks to the PT-034 underwater housing. It makes your already smart camera, smarter by letting you take it to new depths – 40 metres in fact! Made from durable polycarbonate, the housing gives your Mju 740 or 750 more cushioning and protects it from everyday knocks and bumps. Combine this with the Mju 740 and Mju 750’s Underwater Macro and Underwater Wide photo modes and you can expect some stunning shots!
