Ewa Marine U-FX (U_FX, U/FX, U FX) Underwater Housing for SLR Cameras
This is one of our earliest SLR uw-housing in our range, the original version of the U-FX dateing back to the mid seventies. Alas, the current version only shares the basic, external shape with that original version. The material, port, closing rail, glove and basically every other details were subject to the continual improvement process that is part of our manufacturing philosophy and has evolved and improved in numerous iteration over the years.
If you want to use a analog , manual SLR or a larger mirrorless digital camera with a top mounted strobe / flash on small boats, in the surf, for underwater portraits, swimming, snorkeling or diving, then this is the product for you. It is easy to operate the camera as its various components and buttons can be operated through the PVC. The original U-FX SLR underwater housing was designed at a time when analog film still had to be transported by hand between each shot and autofocus was a concept that was in the realm of science fiction. As a result it has a "glove" to allow access to the film transport (normally done with the right hand thumb), shutter release and lens control.
Although this housing was originally designed for analog cameras, a growing number of users with mirrorless system cameras, such as Olympus, Sony and Fuji, have come to appreciate its advantages when it comes to manual lens operation, especially in underwater portrait photography.
The U-FX is designed for underwater use up to a depth of 10 m / 30 ft. The limiting factor is caused solely due to operating difficulties of the hand in the glove below this depth.
