Take the plunge at last! CASIO presents the EWC-80 underwater housing for the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z1000

The fascination of an ocean turtle floating by, a bluish-yellow glowing emperor fish or the unbelievable blaze of colour of a coral reef cannot simply be described in words. In order to be able to document the most beautiful time of the year under water as well, in continuation to the EWC-60 to go with the EXILIM CARD EX-S600 and EX-S500 and the EWC-70 with the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z600 and EX-Z500 CASIO now has designed the new underwater housing EWC-80. The EXILIM Zoom EX-Z1000, equipped with 10.1 megapixel therefore becomes the ideal companion for an expedition into the fascinating world of the bright red soft-coral fields and the glowing multi-coloured fish.

The polycarbonate housing of the EWC-80 has an operational depth of up to 40 meters. It is equipped with an easy to use click-fastening system and the possibility of mounting an external flash. The continuation of all function buttons of the EXILIM Zoom EX-Z1000 on the housing provides optimal operational comfort. The EX-Z1000 is also perfectly protected by the housing after diving against sand, water or knocks. The transparent protection for the lifestyle camera only weighs around 270 g and also draws attention to itself on land with its trendy orange accents.

The EWC-80 is available at retail since July 2006 and comes complete with a flash diffuser, strap, silicon paste as well as an anti-misting kit.
