The Ewa-Marine U-AXP Housing is an economical solution for using any autofocus SLR camera with shoe-mounted flash near or just under the water's surface, manufactured from double laminated PVC and with an optical glass port. It is rated for dives of up to 164 feet (50 m) depth; perfect for snorkeling, diving, or generally sandy, dusty, and humidity weather conditions. The U-AXP gives your camera and flash the best possible protection while being fully operable. When not in use, it is relatively light and takes up little space.
A pair of non-corrosive and seawater resistant clamping rails fit together for sealing, tightened by knurled screw knobs. The housing's internal glove allows easy access to camera controls. If your setup is too buoyant underwater, the optional BF1 lead weight can be affixed to the bottom of the housing.
The U-AXP housing accommodates an autofocus SLR camera with shoe-mounted flash, with the maximum dimensions for the whole kit being 7.5 x 10.75 x 6.6" (190 x 275 x 170mm) WxHxD with lens and a 72mm maximum lens filter thread. Adapters for 52, 55, 58 and 62mm filter threads are included. Amongst others, this housing fits the Canon EOS-1 and EOS-3 and Nikon F4/F5 film cameras, and the Canon EOS 1D/1Ds/10D + BG-ED3, Fujifilm S2 Pro, Kodak DCS 14N, and Nikon D1h/D1x/D2h and D100 with MB-D100.
