The Best Bang For Your Buck: Olympus PEN E-PL10 and Backscatter Octo Housing
Striking a balance between value, performance, and ease of use is the ideal trinity of underwater photography equipment. The Olympus PEN E-PL10 camera and limited edition Backscatter E-PL10 Octo Housing create a system that is not only more affordable than similar rigs, but also has outstanding shooting specs and image quality while staying compact and easy enough for even the first-time underwater photographer.
The Olympus E-PL10 can be shot like a point-and-shoot camera with external wet conversion lenses, or shot like an SLR with dedicated wide angle and macro lenses and ports. Keep it simple and versatile, or go for the best image quality possible – the choice is up to you.
Straight out of the box the system has everything needed to get started and can be upgraded and expanded to pull off any shot imaginable.
At only $699.99 for the camera with lens and $649.00 for the housing, it’s truly the best bang for the buck in underwater photography.
