Wetpixel member Phil Rudin (Tropical1) recently purchased the Olympus PT-E03 underwater housing for his E-410 digital SLR and, along with the new 14-42mm Zuiko lens and Athena ring flash, evaluated the build, ergonomics, and final picture quality.
For the traveling photographer you will find this housing to be one of the smallest for a DSLR and very lightweight…I have owned the prior PT-E01 & PT-E02 housings and have found that the cost to performance ratio was very high. This new housing is no exception.
Rudin includes many example images and heartily recommends the camera and housing, taking note of a few minor issues to be resolved. Continue for his impressions and tips for using this reasonably priced setup…
