Olympus Stylus Accessories
I found some really great accessories for the Olympus Stylus SW series camera.
Okay, so you bought this great little underwater camera and it is waterproof, but it’s not drop proof.
Imagine being out on the ocean enjoying a great snorkeling excursion and oops… you drop the camera… and watch it sink to the bottom. All you can do is watch it drift further and further – ten, 20, 30 feet down… Bummer.
Although it is true the “S” in Olympus Stylus SW stands for shockproof, it doesn’t mean you will be able to retrieve it when it hits the bottom!
I did some research and found an inexpensive solution to this potential disaster. I call it a little life preserver for the Olympus Stylus 1030 SW, and it will work with many other models as well, such as the Stylus 720 SW, 770 SW, 790 SW, 850 SW, Olympus Stylus 1050 SW, and others.
You can see a picture of it on the left. Its called, “Olympus Floating Strap” and it wraps around your wrist.
All you have to do is attach the detachable strap to the camera and voila! Your camera and investment are safe.
I found a great deal on a five piece accessory kit that contains the strap as well as spare Li-50B Li-Ion Battery and additional backup, padded soft camera case Precision design, and a 5 piece lens cleaning kit.
Having a back-up battery is also one of the main accessories I suggest everyone has in their camera kit.

One last note – when I am snorkeling I hook this to my life vest for added ease of use and security.
