Ewa Marine U-BF (UBF, U BF, U/BF) underwater housing as U-B but with glove for hand to control camera functions
Opening up a whole new dimension of professional photography:
The U-BF was specially designed with the professional photographer and his digital SLR (like the Nikon D300, D800, D3, D4 und Canon 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, EOS 1DX and smaller lenses with a filter thread of up to 72mm in mind.
The big difference between the U-BF and other housings in the U-B.. Series is the fact, that in addition to the little finger insert to operate the shutter release with the right forefinger, the U-BF 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 waters 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: This housing is shipped with an ewa-marine CAF adapter system set to connect the camera's lens to the front port housing. Adapters with a filter thread of 49, 52, 58 and 62 mm are includes ex factory. Should you want to use sslightly larger diameter lenses, please purchase the necessary 67mm or 72mm ewa-marine CAF adapter from your local dealer.
Attention: All lenses used with this housing must have an internal focus!
