ewa-marine U-AXP flexible UW housing
Their use on boats, surfing, swimming or snorkeling is easy, because the cameras used in the housing can be operated from outside as normal and thus the user gets interesting pictures without any special knowledge and practice. In addition to the various housing types, the U-A… series in which one can use wide-angle and tele-lenses up to 20 meters in depth, the U-AXP model complements the housing range for autofocus SLR cameras and allows them to be used up to 50 meters in depth.
For two reasons the housing is more voluminous than the other auto focus cases. On the one hand, the space now also extends to the larger SLR cameras, like Nikon F4, F5 and Canon EOS 1, EOS 3 (please note that the Nikon F5 requires a special adapter for the AV110-X, which you can obtain free of charge from your dealer in Germany) and to and The extended volume allows greater depth of immersion.
A built-in check valve for air inflation and belt mounts mounted on the outside of the Gehäue for the attaching of diver leads allow a dive up to a maximum depth of 50 m. These depths were also tested and confirmed by independent, leading German diving magazines! These experienced UW photographers have found in their tests in these depths that the auto focus is still working exactly and the triggering with flash works without any problems. The high water pressure is compensated by the high air volume, which requires the weighting of the housing with some kilograms of diver lead in order to reduce the strong buoyancy on the surface.
The housing is made of special foil and has an integrated optical glass port.
It is ideal for snorkelling, diving (up to 50m), on the beach, in the desert, in rainy weather or in areas with high humidity.
The closure of the housing consists of two clamping rails that are screwed together with three screws, thereby sealing the housing waterproof.
Lead weights can be attached to the straps on the bottom of the case to confronting the housing.
