Example image captured with the standard power zoom lens. This photo was shot in an environment with floating objects. The UFL-3 was used with the internal flash because the floating objects would appear more prominent when using only the internal flash. Shoot with an electronic zoom lens when you want to shoot both macro and wide photography with a single flash.
Photo of Bat Fish shot with minimal flash for a brighter background and softer subject. The advanced underwater white balance has ensured that colour reproduction is correct.
In this macro mode, the adjusted underwater white balance has resulted in a background of solid blue with the vivid red of the goby’s body colour.
This photo was shot at the closest focusing distance of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 60mm F2.8 Macro lens. Despite high magnification, the deep depth-of-field of this macro lens accurately depicts the sea slug’s probes. Reproduction of the intermediate colours is also exceptional. The default small AF focus area greatly assists with small subjects such as this.
This photo was shot with a standard lens kit and an underwater case,no other options. Even using built in flash, a clownfish is beautifully projected. And there is no reflections from floating objects.
This photo was shot using the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 12mm F2.0 lens. Relatively intense light from the UFL-3 flash was used. The final colour reproduction is close to that of the E-M1. Although the closest focusing distance is a bit longer, this lens is suited for underwater wide photography. It is lighter, smaller and therefore more easy-to-use than the wide converter.
This photo was captured with the standard zoom lens and digital zoom with the PTMC-01 Macro Conversion Lens. Using just these accessories even minute subjects can be magnified.
The UFL-3’s Target Light helped to capture this photo of Randalli's prawn-goby lurking in a cave mouth. This subject was captured using the Digital Teleconvertor function. The result is magnification and vividness similar to that shot with a macro lens.
This photo was captured with an underwater case while scuba diving. The default exposure compensation and flash compensation (0.0) were used. The brightness of the background and flash intensity are both excellent. In an environment where there is a lot of floating objects, decrease the flash intensity.
The flash light of the TG-4 was improved and fine-tuned so it is comparable to that of SLR cameras which are favoured by many underwater users. Easily adjust to your favourite flash intensity setting by using the Flash Compensation function. Auto-Focus in dark scenes is excellent, so additional light may not be needed unless you are diving at night.
A scene in an underwater cave. The details of the rock surfaces in the cave, which are most often blackened in normal shooting modes, are reproduced faithfully. This excellent mode preserves the beautiful light from the water surface above, and the details of the cave in the same image.
For slow-moving subjects like this sea slug, use the focus lock function. Use AF to roughly focus on the subject and then lock the focus. Move the camera back and forth slightly to precisely focus on the subject’s probes.
