Olympus unveils underwater case for C-5060
The recently announced Olympus CAMEDIA C-5060 Wide Zoom already got additional case for underwater shooting. We´ve written about the C-5060 official announcement just a week (see C-5060 Wide Zoom new 5 megapixel camera from Olympus) and today the company introduced the PT-020 underwater option along with the FL-20 flash and its PFL-01 underwater case. Besides, the the company prepares new wide-angle (17mm) WCON-07C optics with CLA-7 adapter that will be marked PPO-02 in the underwater variant. Anyway, we´ll have to wait until November, when C-5060 and underwater options are available for sale.
The PT-020 case allows dives down to 40m, while the FL-20 flash (with PFL-01) even supports TTL underwater.
The only thing left is pricing (only for Japan for now): PT-020 case for C-5060 will cost about $250, FL-20 (already available) – $130, PFL-01 case for FL-20 $250, PPO-02 wide-angle lens – about $150.
