Ocean Leisure Cameras have announced the addition of Panasonic’s DMW-MCFT3 waterproof housing to its range of underwater photography products. The Panasonic FT3 is waterproof on its own down to a depth of 12 metres, but this housing allows you to go down to 40 metres.

The Panasonic housing also has an accessory shoe mount for focusing lights or small strobes. You can buy the camera+housing in a kit for £519.95. If you already have the Panasonic FT3, you can purchase the housing separately for £219.95.
