About Ewa-Marine

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-AXP is designed to fit almost all common SLR cameras on the market today, irrespective of the manufacturer or model. With thishousing, 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 50 m / 150 ft

The housing is larger than its sister model, the U-AX, for two reasons: Firstly it was designed to take the larger SLR cameras like the Nikon F4, F5 and Canon EOS 1, EOS 3 (please note, that you will need a special adapter for the AV110-X which is available from your dealer or distributor) and secondly the extra volume of air trapped inside the housing allows a dive depths of up to 50m / 150 ft !

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 utilised.

Designed specifically for SLR cameras, the U-AXP housing is manufactured from double laminated PVC and has an integrated, optically neutral flat glass port. The external flash that is commonly used on SLR cameras fits into the specially designed section on the top of the housing.

It has a pair of non-corrosive and seawater resistant clamping rails which fit together for perfect sealing. They tighten by means of three screw knobs.

It is supplied in a handy yellow carry-case which has a water-proof interior and zippered side-pocket

Inexpensive alternative to real housing

This works well as long as you understand its limitations. It will keep water off your camera. It will allow you to submerge your camera for underwater photos. It will not protect your camera from underwater pressure. I use this when snorkling or when shooting surfers in the water. It seals well-I've never had it leak.

It isn't a substitute for a rigid housing because the pressure that builds as you dive deeper pushes in on the bag which in turn pushes in on your camera, making it difficult to operate your buttons and other devices. It also pushes in on your lens, which makes it difficult to keep the same focal length on zoom lenses, unless your lens has internal focus. I'd recommend this for shallow water shoots and for keeping your camera dry in wet environments.

Fails to Deliver

The equipment is incredibly cumbersome to assemble properly for use. It's difficult to get the camera and attached flash in or out of the case. It requires the operator to fumble with three tiny built-in screw mechanisms to close it properly. The accordion-type front section tends to get in the way of certain lenses. And worse, most of the time it is nearly impossible to press the shutter button effectively... I don't want to think of the hundreds and hundreds of photographs that I have misse...

The equipment is incredibly cumbersome to assemble properly for use. It's difficult to get the camera and attached flash in or out of the case. It requires the operator to fumble with three tiny built-in screw mechanisms to close it properly. The accordion-type front section tends to get in the way of certain lenses. And worse, most of the time it is nearly impossible to press the shutter button effectively... I don't want to think of the hundreds and hundreds of photographs that I have missed because the camera would not fire regardless of how many times I tried to trip the shutter through the clumsy index finger compartment. This product has become one of my biggest disappointments, and it is one of my least favorite items, so nowadays I leave it relegated to my equipment cabinet instead of adding it to my diving bag. I wish someone had given me this information before I wasted my money on this product.

Didn't Do Too Much For Me

By

The product was easy to assemble. However, it was very difficult pushing the buttons on the camera, once diving. I was very disappointed with the clarity and visibility. I had a underwater disposable that took better photos than this. And on my last dive with it, it leaked on my D50 which thankfully survived. My suggestion is to save the money until you can buy a $1,000+ underwater case if you want to get near professional looking prints.

Very nice,instructions vague.

Instructions are vague, but common sense can prevail. Not easily accommodating to zoom lenses.
