Aquatica Digital is pleased to announce the release of Aquatica AE-M1 Housing For Olympus OM-D E-M1, the latest in its fine line of precision crafted aluminum housings. This housing will incorporate all of the great features of our current DSLR line of housings, but in a much smaller and compact size. Our designers and engineers have taken full advantage of our 5-Axis machines and have come up with what we feel is the best engineered and best looking aluminum housing on the market, and with its long tradition of making underwater housings, it also has a depth rating of 300 feet.
The housing is ergonomically tailored to take advantage of the EM-1's compact size. All controls are positioned for quick and easy access and have been designed to take full advantage of the quality lenses available for this format. The AE-M1 housing being the flagship, weight, size and optimum performance were on top on the agenda. The end result is a state of the art housing series from one of the most experienced and longest established manufacturer in the industry. Aquatica has developed a new atmospheric pressure sensitive circuitry that will allow the user to confirm water tight integrity before the dive. This new system will give the user additional peace of mind, knowing their expensive camera equipment will stay dry.
The AE-M1 housing will support all the popular lenses that the shooter would want to use underwater, this will include lenses from both Olympus and Panasonic, ranging from the Panasonic 8mm fisheye to the Olympus 60mm macro and many other lenses in between. The AE-M1 housing will also have available an extensive line up of ports, including a 4 inch glass port, 6 inch acrylic port, macro port and various extension ring options. The AE-M1 housing comes with state of the art Galileo optic viewfinder. It is very easy for the user to remove the back window allowing the use of our Aquaview or Aquaview 45 finder.
The new atmospheric pressure sensitive circuitry and leak alarm circuit has a temperature compensation included, so any change in ambient temperature or changes in the internal temperature will not cause an incorrect reading. The AE-M1 housing will ship with a bulkhead opening for future and easy installation of the optional vacuum valves.
