The Ewa-Marine U-BFZ100 Underwater Housing for Pro DSLR Cameras is a double-laminated PVC waterproof case that enables you to take your professional digital SLR camera beneath the surface. A derivative of Ewa-Marine's U-BF housing, it was designed especially for the pro range of DSLR's, such as the Canon EOS 1D, the Nikon D3, the Sony Alpha 900, or the Leica S, and allows for the use of longer lenses than the U-BF.

The housing is compatible with camera/lens combinations up to 9.1" (23 cm) in length, and can accommodate cameras smaller than the pro size, either with or without an extra battery pack. With a depth rating of 32.8' (10 m), the enclosure is suitable for relatively shallow diving or shooting at or near surface level, as well as shooting around the water where you may only get splashed. Its buoyancy is positive, unless you use the optional weight BF1 or another comparable weight to make it negative. The housing has a built-in, optically neutral flat glass port.

What differentiates the U-BFZ100 from other UB-series housings is that it has not only the finger insert for operating the camera's shutter release with your right forefinger, but also an integrated glove designed for left-handed use. The glove lets you cradle the camera and lens just as you would if it were not in the housing, which is highly conducive to manual operation for getting the precise settings desired.

The housing permits easy access to all camera controls. It comes with the CA-82 adapter to connect the camera's lens to the flat front port. The adapter features an 82mm filter thread. An RA77-82 step-up ring / filter adapter is also included, enabling you to utilize smaller 77mm diameter lenses. Simply screw the RA77-82 and CA-82 together. An optional CA-77 adapter (not included) is also available for 77mm lenses, and gets fitted to the housing's front port, like the CA-82. For lenses of a smaller diameter than 77mm, you'll need to purchase a separate filter adapter to attach the lenses to the 77mm or 82mm Ewa-Marine adapter. All lenses must have internal focusing in order to be used in this housing.

Two clamping rails fit together and can be tightened via 3 screw knobs to give the housing a tight, waterproof seal. These rails are seawater-resistant to ward off corrosion. A convenient yellow carrying case with a waterproof interior is supplied with the housing.
