Our take on the Olympus FCON-T01

by David Brown
Designed for use with the Olympus TG-1 iHS and TG-2 iHS waterproof cameras, the FCON-01 allows for wide-angle shooting without sacrificing the brightness of these cameras' f/2.0 lenses. Capture unique underwater scenes that show a wider view of the world below the surface. The FCON-01 lens is waterproof to depths of 40 feet. Requires the CLA-T01 adapter. See more info on this item

Overview: The Olympus FCON-T01 Fisheye Converter allows you to take extreme wide angle photos on the Olympus Tough TG-1 and TG-2 cameras. The Fisheye Converter has a 0.74x magnification. Like the TG-1 and TG-2, the FCON-T01 is waterproof to 40 feet. The CLA-T01 Converter Adapter is required when using the FCON-T01 fisheye converter lens. With the CLA-T01 attached to the camera, the FCON-T01 simply screws into place.

The value of the FCON T01 Fisheye

Written By Flashaholic, Southern CT on Sunday, January 20, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The new Olympus Tough TG-1 camera exceeded my expectations for a rugged point and shoot camera. My art is based on patterns I find that I abstract and this fisheye converter yields both sharp images for general photography but also for my abstracts for my work.
Yields sharp images, very usable in low light situations, waterproof
The CLA T01 doesn't like to stay attached to the lens when you try to remove the converter from the camera.
