Norderstedt, November 2004 - With the EWC-55, CASIO is bringing an underwater casing on the market especially for the digital camera EXILIM Zoom EX-Z55. One more reason to escape the snow and soft hail of the German winter: spontaneous holidaymakers are packing their cases and flying in the direction of the South Seas, where they take part in diving expeditions with the new underwater casing EWC-55 and EXILIM Zoom EX-Z55. The new duo turns the fascinating beauty of the world under water into a marvellous experience: corals and colourful fish are photographed and can be viewed particularly well on the extra-large 2.5 inch TFT colour display. The casing, which measures 128.0 × 86.0 × 70.5 mm, is ready for use up to 40 metres under water. The transparent eye-catcher with its orange-coloured accents only weighs around 270 g and also protects the EXILIM EX-Z55 above sea-level against dust, spray-water and dirt. The digital camera plus casing are a dream-team for impressive photos that will remind you for a long time in cold Germany of the spontaneous short trip to the sunny South. The EWC-55 is available from November 2004 in well-sorted specialist shops. The casing comes with a flash diffuser, a strap, silicon paste as well as an anti-mist kit.
