Ewa-Marine U-AZ Overview

  • 1Description

The Ewa-Marine U-AZ Housing is an economical solution for using an autofocus SLR camera with long zoom lens (up to 9") 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 66 feet (20 m) depth; perfect for snorkeling, shallow diving, or generally sandy, dusty, and humidity weather conditions.  The U-AZ gives your camera 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-AZ accommodates an autofocus SLR camera without shoe-mounted flash, with the maximum dimensions being 6.0 x 5.3 x 9.0" (150 x 135 x 229mm) WxHxD with lens and a 72mm maximum lens filter thread. Adapters for 52, 55, 58 and 62mm filter threads are included.

An Ideal Near-the-Surface Solution
The Ewa-Marine housing's perfect for use at or near the water's surface, such as in sailing or snorkeling, but is also practical for protection from harsh weather conditions
Works with Autofocus SLR Cameras and Long Zoom Lenses
The long, bellowed lens section of the U-AZ allows space for typical 75-300mm style telephoto zoom lenses
Double Laminated PVC Construction
Long lasting housing solution that is easy to maintain and packs in minimal space
Non-Corrosive Clamping Rails
The non-corrosive and seawater resistant clamping rails are secured by knurled thumb screws

    Ewa-Marine U-AZ Reviews

    U-AZ Underwater Housing is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, a bit expensive Completely waterproof, allows to use all camera functions underwater. A little clumsy and takes some getting used to, but can be expected from an underwater case. A little difficult to see through viewfinder.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great concept, not for everyone I bought this to go snorkeling and while the concept is good, the performance wasn't up to par. I like the idea of having an underwater bag for a tele lense, however my Nikon D90 w300mm lense did not fit corectly in this bag. The bag looked well constructed, but wasn't for me. Also the instructions were terribly lacking...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for my use I purchsed this housing for use with a Nikon D80 w/28-300 lens during kayaking and snorkling. It is easy to install the cammera in the housing. The onl drawback is using the finger pouch to take pictures; it takes some getting used to.

    question

    Can I use this housing with a canon 5d mkii and a 24-70 lens?
    Asked by: Joanna P.
    The Ewa-Marine U-AZ housing is fine for the Canon 5D mark II but not the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens. This housing bag is designed for lenses that are 9 long and have a 62mm filter thread or smaller. The Ewa-Marine U-B 100 is a better choice. This bag housing is compatible with lenses that are 3.94 to 7.87 long and have a filter thread of 82mm or smaller. For the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens you will need the Ewa-Marine C-A82 82mm Adapter Ring Set. Here are the links for the housing and adapter set: <a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/623872-REG/Ewa_Marine_EM_U_B100_U_B_100_Underwater_Housing.html target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/623872-REG/Ewa_Marine_EM_U_B100_U_B_100_Underwater_Housing.html</a><a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/326427-REG/Ewa_Marine_EM_C_A82_C_A82_82mm_Adapter_Ring.html/pageID/accessory target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/326427-REG/Ewa_Marine_EM_C_A82_C_A82_82mm_Adapter_Ring.html/pageID/accessory</a>
