Ewa-Marine U-BXP Housing for DSLR Cameras with Flashgun & Lenses up to 72mm
The ewa-marine U-BXP is designed for large, professional dSLR cameras with top mounted strobe. Rated for dive depths up to 50m/ 150ft the U-BXP includes a set adapters to connect the cameras lens to the front port made from optical grade mineral glass to ensure perfect picture quality.
The housing can be used on small boats, in the surf, while swimming, snorkeling or diving. It`s easy to operate the camera as its various components and buttons can be operated through the PVC.
The U-BXP is designed to fit almost all large, digital dSLR cameras on the market today, irrespective of the manufacturer or model. With this housing, a whole new world of applications opens up for your standard SLR camera: Inside the housing you can now take the camera safely canoeing, snorkeling or even diving, up to a depth of 50m / 150ft.
If the optional BF1 lead weight is inserted into the housing, underneath the camera, it becomes even easier to reach the maximum depth. Experienced photographers have confirmed, that the auto focus and flash both continue to function perfectly. As you descend, the air is pressed into the camera. Due to this, the pressure inside the housing will remain the same as the surrounding water pressure. (this is the reason why ewa-marine housings are so safe to use: implosions are impossible) Due to this, we have to start the dive with a suitable amount of air inside the housing. The foam pads supplied with the housing are part of this air "reservoir" and additional air should also be blown into the housing, via the valve at the rear, to ensure that the maximum potential volume is being utilized.
This is only one of a range of underwater SLR housings by ewa-marine.
If you are using a lens with 82mm, 77mm or 72mm filter diameter, then you would have to get our U-BXP100. Basically the same housing, the only difference being the larger front port and adapters
