Opening up a whole new dimension of professional photography with the Ewa Marine Underwater Housing for Pro DSLR Cameras is a derivative of the popular Ewa-Marine U-BF and was specially designed with the professional photographer and his digital SLR (like the Canon EOS 1D, the Nikon D3, the Sony Alpha 900 or the Leica S) in mind. In contrast to the U-BF, The U-BFZ allows the use of longer lenses. The U-BFZ100 accepts camera / lens combinations up to 23 cm / 9 inch in total length-

The big difference between the U-BFZ100 and other housings in the U-B.. Series is the fact that in addition to the little finger inserts to operate the shutter release with the right forefinger, the U-BFZ comes with a "glove" integrated into the housing. This glove is designed for the left hand of the user and allows him to cradle the camera and lens in his left hand the way he would if using the camera without the housing. Having his hand on the lens then allows him to operate the camera and lens manually and access all the details to allow him to make the photo with the exact settings he desires.

It's easy to operate as the camera as its various components and buttons can be operated through the PVC. This is the housing that is ideal for fashion photography in or near a pool or from the surf, sports photography, as well as nature and artistic photography just around the water surface or in areas where the camera or environment has to be protected from chemical or biological contamination. Naturally and although it is still an option, as the photographer will have both hand fixed onto the housing, the housing isn't really predestined for diving.

Please note: In this housing is shipped with a adapter system to connect the camera's lens to the front port housing. To facilitate the majority of lenses, this adapter has a 82mm filter thread. To facilitate the use of smaller lenses, a RA77-82 filter adapter is also included in the housing. Alternatively a 77mm adapter is available as an optional accessory. Should you want to use smaller diameter lenses, please purchase a filter adapter to fit this lens to the 77mm or 82mm Ewa-Marine adapter from your local dealer?

With this housing, a whole new world of applications opens up for your professional digital SLR camera. Naturally, smaller cameras, with or without an additional battery pack can also be used in the U-BF100. The housing is rated to be used to a dive depth of 10 m / 30 ft. The U-BFZ100 housing is manufactured from double laminated PVC and has an integrated, optically neutral flat glass port. It has a pair of non-corrosive and seawater resistant clamping rails which fit together for perfect sealing. They tighten by means of three screw knobs. It is supplied in a handy yellow carry-case which has a water-proof interior.

Note: All lenses used with this housing must have an internal focus!

  • Construction: Depth rating of 32.8' (10 m) makes housing 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. Buoyancy is positive, unless you use optional weight BF1 or another comparable weight (not included), in which case it will be negative. Built-in, optically neutral flat glass port. Constructed from durable, double-laminated PVC. A pair of 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
  • Controls: 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. Housing permits easy access to all camera controls
  • Compatibility: 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. 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 additional battery pack. 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
  • Included Case: A convenient yellow carrying case with a waterproof interior is supplied with the housing
