Ewa-Marine U-BXP overview

  • 1Description

The Ewa-Marine U-BXP housing is specially designed to fit the bulky, professional digital SLR cameras such as the Canon 1Ds or the Nikon D2X, D200 and similar cameras. Smaller SLR cameras can still be used in the housing. The housing is manufactured from double laminated PVC and has an optical glass port. It is rated for dives of up to 155' (50 m) depth.

Perfect for snorkeling, diving, sandy, dusty, humidity or foul weather conditions. This housing will give your camera the best possible protection while being fully operable.

If the optional BF1 lead weight is inserted into the housing, underneath the camera, it becomes even easier to reach the maximum depth. The auto focus of the camera continues 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 volume is being utilized.

It has a pair of non-corrosive and seawater resistant clamping rails which fit together for sealing. They tighten by means of screw knobs. The external flash that is commonly used on SLR cameras fits into the specially designed section on the top of the housing.

This housing accommodates a maximum 72mm lens filter thread. Adapters for 52, 55, 58 and 62mm filter threads are included.

    Ewa-Marine U-BXP reviews

    U-BXP Underwater Housing is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from shooting in the water I have used this product for both underwater situations, whitewater and caving. I love it for the first two but frankly I think a pelican works best for caving unless you are cave diving (I was only swimming) It is a bit tricky to fit the lens adapter to the D2x but worked well once I got it seated. Most of the majors controls are reachable. What out for condensation...can ruin your whole shoot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money.... Keeping in mind, that I would have needed two seperate housings for my EOS 5D and EOS 7D if I had opted for a hard housing.... I would have spent about 10x as much or more! And would have ended up with the same photographic results....

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not recommend this product. We were excited to buy this for our trip to Hawaii. Installation was a little comber sum but I was able to get the camera in first and then add the flash. used two of the blocks under the camera. User experience is very pour, it is difficult to hold and the finger access is poorly designed to hit the shutter release every time.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE PRODUCT, HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE I purchased this product to take to the beach for snorkeling photos. After one use the metal bar used to seal the bag cracked. I contacted B&H and they referred me to their warranty company. 108 days later, I have a broken underwater camera casing that I cannot use and no resolution.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good shots Loved the shots - it was easier to preset many of the controls first - no problems on vacation reef dive -way cheaper than a hard housing - flexible but has a glass lens port.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to handle You should set up your camera before to use this housing, once your camera is inside, forget about to change any setting.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge Plastic MuMu While it DOES keep your camera perfectly dry.... it is very difficult to control/operate.
