Fujifilm announce underwater housing for FinePix F710 Zoom digital cameraFujifilm today announced a secure underwater case to house the FinePix F710 Zoom, the UK's first widescreen digital camera. This robust sub-aqua unit allows the underwater photographer greater shooting versatility at depths of up to 40 metres, and has been ergonomically designed to withstand challenging conditions.

Based on Fujifilm's acclaimed Super CCD SR technology, the FinePix F710 Zoom is well equipped to handle the extreme light and shadow contrast of an aquatic landscape. The polycarbonate housing shields this impressive camera from the elements, allowing detailed images of underwater scenes to be taken with pin-sharp clarity.

The FinePix F710 Zoom camera comes equipped with a 4x zoom lens, pop-up flash and 2.1" widescreen (16:9) LCD display, ideal for capturing images and short movies to play back on the increasingly popular widescreen TV, without distortion.

The watertight seal and lock on the underwater housing ensure the camera is securely fastened at all times. Designed with easy handling in mind, the housing comes with bright orange buttons, making the controls easy to navigate and highly visible underwater. An LCD screen hood provides shade to combat difficult shooting conditions such as bright sunshine or sub-aqua reflections.

Just in time for the summer holiday season, the housing is a must-have accessory for those planning trips by the sea, or for anyone into water-based activities or other extreme sports.

Adrian Clarke, Fujifilm's Director of Consumer Products, said, "The FinePix F710 Zoom is proving to be a popular addition to the Fujifilm range. The ability to use an underwater casing now extends the photographic experience into an exciting new world. Specifically designed to handle demanding lighting and environmental conditions, this impressive package is a must-have for photo fans, keen to take their camera everywhere they go."
