    Contact Olympus Imaging Corp. for detail of camera/protector. INON Inc. confirms product compatibility based on a camera/housing available in Japan.

    (*2)
    Usable only when bundled flash of the『E-PL3』/『E-PM1』is set to “Fill-in flash”.
    INON strobe is not compatible with Olympus “wireless RC flash system”.

    (*3)
    When using「S-2000」/「Z-240」/「D-2000」in【Manual】or【External Auto】mode, set Advanced Cancel Circuit to OFF and set camera’s flash mode to “Manual”. Using “Fill-in flash” of the camera limits operation of「S-2000」/「Z-240」/「D-2000」in 【Manual】 mode when selected flash output is beyond -1.5E.V. or in【External Auto】when actual flash output is beyond -1.5E.V.

    (*4)
    Olympus「PT-EP05L」/「PT-EP06L」 has fiber optics adapters for underwater use and above listed INON fiber optics product is directly plugged in the adapter.

    --JAN code: 456212143 623 7
    (Necessary when installing「UFL-M150 ZM80」on the compatible housing.)

    These conversion lenses are easily interchanged to support『semi-fisheye imaging』, 『ultra macro imaging』and『underwater fisheye imaging』even in a single dive.

    (*5)
    Wide zoom setting will have vignetting on image corners. Crop an image when editing or zoom little bit when shooting.

    (*6)
    Only usable underwater with zoom setting from middle to telephoto side. Using on land or zoom wide end setting underwater will have vignetting.

    (*7)
    Compatible lens is “M. ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm F3.5-5.6II R” and “M. ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm F3.5-5.6II” only.







Arm System Compatibility with 『E-PL3』/「PT-EP05L」, 『E-PM1』/「PT-EP06L」 (*1)
    The「Grip Base M1」is a base arm specifically designed for midsize underwater housing for micro four thirds digital SLR and usable for Olympus「PT-EP05L」and「PT-EP06L」as well. The「Grip Base M1」is firmly attached on a housing with two tripod screws and equipped legs on the base provides stable placement of combined housing. Wide variety of INON adapters/bases is compatible with the「Grip Base M1」and easy to set-up multiple lighting system with dual strobe configuration by attaching extra「D Holder」. The compact light arm「Shoe Base」is directly attached on the housing accessory shoe.
