Norfolk Twin Wreck Shore Dive Challenge - The Vera and Rosalie » Rob's E-330 gallery

We've been using the E-330 since May and we're pretty impressed. We have the Olympus housing and for macro use the 50mm lens, 1.4x teleconvertor and FL-36 flash. I was stunned when batteries easily outlasted our 3 hours underwater and nearly 400 photos.

Looks like someone had a late night!
