Questions and Answers for Olympus PT-019 Underwater Housing for C5000 Ultra Zoom:
How deep can you go for this camera to work well?

This camera is good to 130 feet. To get better pictures, make sure you have an external light source when going that deep.
I am looking for a quality camera and quality pics for snorkeling underwater only. What is the best choice ? Sealife Mini II (169.) do both cameras have wide angle lens, and Olympus PT 019 no reviews on this camera? Thank You Lynne

The Pt-019 is simply a housing for the Olympus C5000 camera. You'd need to locate the camera to go with the housing. The Sealife Mini II is the older version and the Mini 2.1 is the newer version of Sealife's camera designed as an inexpensive option for snorkeler and divers. It has a full manufacturer's warranty and has features such as Video with sound, Still images, settings for snorkeling, diving and above water use and more.
