Ewa-Marine U-A Housing for Small DSLR and Large Mirrorless Cameras
Underwater housing for compact, consumer SLR cameras
The U-A is designed to fit almost all common SLR cameras on the market today, irrespective of the manufacturer or model. Like the Sony A7, Fuji XT-1 and Canon Rebel cameras. 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 20 m / 60 ft.
The U-A SLR underwater 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.
As off 2019, our U-A is now shipped with the new ewa-marine safety-wrist-strap. Simply slip your hand through the loop at the bottom and, if the camera accidentally falls out of your hand, the loop automatically locks and secures the underwater case to your wrist. And yet it is easy and quick to open, when required, with the integrated buckle.
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.
