The EM1 housing provides access to all the functions of the Olympus EM1 including Live View and Info. The ergonomic SUBAL housing design and arrangement of all the key controls allows easy camera operation without letting go of the grip. The camera is fitted on a special cradle which enables a precise and faster, more secure mounting. A 4mm O-ring and the SUBAL Quick-Lock closure system prevents accidental crushing of the O-ring and ensures maximum safety. Threaded holes at the base allow the attachment of a tray. Focusing lights can be attached or mounted to the top shoe. The monitor window provides a glare-free and high-contrast view of the camera monitor. Material selection, processing, surface protection and finish conform to the usual high-quality that is common to all SUBAL products. SUBAL offers for this housing model 3 different viewfinder systems: the slim standard viewfinder reduces the viewfinder image so that it can seen fully despite wearing a dive mask. The GS 180 and the 45° viewfinder provide an image approximately corresponding in size to the camera's viewfinder. The GS-180 is a strait viewfinder whilst the WS-45 has a 45° angle. All Subal viewfinders systems are interchangeable and can be installed and removed easily by the user.

Only SUBAL ports with bayonet type 3 mounts can be used with a 2/3 adapter ring except the DP-FE2.


Technical Data:

Seawater-resistant aluminum alloy worked from a solid block. Hard-coating and corrosion treatment is applied to the surface of the housing. In addition 3 layers of powder-coating paint is applied to give the housing the Subal color and unique finish. All parts are made of hard-anodized light alloy, acid-resistant stainless steel and high-quality plastics to cope with the marine environment.
