Subal release underwater housing for the Olympus EM1 Mark II


The housing for the Olympus EM1 Mark II froom Subal provides access to all functions of the camera. The ergonomic Subal design and arrangement of all important elements of the housing allows easy operation of the camera without letting go of the handle. The camera is mounted on a special sled to mount the camera with precision in the housing – this allows for a faster and more secure mounting.

A 4 mm O-ring and the new Subal locking system prevents accidental crushing of the O-ring, and ensures maximum safety. Threaded holes at the base allow attaching Rails, etc. Pilot lights can be attached or mounted to the top shoe. The monitor window provides a glare-free and high-contrast insight on the camera monitor.

Material selection, processing, surface protection and finish conform to the usual standard level of quality that is expected from all Subal products. Subal offers 3 different viewfinders for this housing model: the standard viewfinder slimmed reduces the viewfinder image so that it can fully be overlooked, even whilst wearing a diving mask.

Technical data

In addition, 3 layers of powder coated paint is applied to give the housing the Subal color and unique finish.
