Aquatica AE-M1 Underwater Housing for Olympus OM-D E-M1 Camera with Dual Optical Bulkheads
Aquatica Digital is pleased to announce the release of their AE-M1 housing, 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.

Aquatica AE-M1 Underwater Housing for Olympus OM-D E-M1 Camera with Dual Optical Bulkheads


Aquatica Digital is pleased to announce the release of their AE-M1 housing, 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.

Housings built with quality
This new Aquatica housing, like all housings we make, is milled from a solid block of 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum, it is black anodized and then for further protection, a resistant polyester electrostatic powder coat paint is added. This ensures that your investment will last a lifetime. The AE-M1 housing takes advantage of the best and lightest grips in the industry. These form fitting grips are not only light weight but also very strong and will allow you to mount large strobes or video lights hassle free and without the need for any reinforced brackets.

MORE ABOUT THE HOUSINGS UNIQUE FEATURES
LENS SUPPORT

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.

VIEWFINDER OPTIONS
The AE-M1 housing comes with our standard state of the art Galileo optic viewfinder. Our engineers have made it very easy for the user to remove the back window allowing the use of our Aquaview or Aquaview 45 finder. Both of these are recognized as the best in the industry.

The onboard start actuating button is for the vacuum only; your alarm is always on. The AE-M1 housing will ship with a bulkhead opening for future and easy installation of the optional vacuum valves.
