Ex. VAT: £229.16 Inc. VAT: £274.99

  • Designed for consumer SLR and interchangeable lens cameras with top mounted strobe. 

  • Rated for dive depths up to 50m/150ft the U-AXP

  • Front port made from optical grade mineral glass to ensure perfect picture quality

  • Includes a set of adapters to connect the cameras lens to the back of the glass



The housing can be used on small boats, in the surf, while swimming, snorkeling or diving. It`s easy to operate the camera as its various components and buttons can be operated through the PVC.

The U-AXP is designed to fit almost all common SLR cameras on the market today, irrespective of the manufacturer or model. With this housing, a whole new world of applications opens up for your standard SLR camera: Inside the housing you can now take the camera safely canoeing, snorkeling or even diving, up to a depth of 50m / 150ft.

If the optional BF1 lead weight is inserted into the housing, underneath the camera, it becomes even easier to reach the maximum depth. Experienced photographers have confirmed, that the auto focus and flash both continue to function perfectly. As you descend, the air is pressed into the camera. Due to this, the pressure inside the housing will remain the same as the surrounding water pressure. (this is the reason why ewa-marine housings are so safe to use: implosions are impossible) Due to this, we have to start the dive with a suitable amount of air inside the housing. The foam pads supplied with the housing are part of this air "reservoir" and additional air should also be blown into the housing, via the valve at the rear, to ensure that the maximum potential volume is being utilized.

This is only one of a range of underwater SLR housings by ewa-marine.

Please also note, that the U-AXP only accepts lenses with a filter diameter of up to a maximum of 72mm. If you are using a lens with 82mm or 77mm filter diameter, then you would have to get our U-AXP100. Basically the same housing, the only difference being the larger front port and adapters.

Application and alternative Products

The housing is larger than its sister model, the U-AX, for two reasons: Firstly it was designed to take the larger SLR cameras like the Nikon F4, F5 and Canon EOS 1, EOS 3 (please note, that you will need a special adapter for the AV110-X which is available from your dealer or distributor) and secondly the extra volume of air trapped inside the housing allows a dive depths of up to 50m / 150 ft !

Depending on your application the following products may offer a better solution:

U-A: Compact without a top mounted flash gun ideal for snorkeling
U-AX: SLR with top mounted strobe for up to to 20m / 60ft dive depth. Offers better better illumination of the subject under poor light condition
U-AXP 100: SLR with top mounted strobe, bigger front glas and up to to 50m / 150ft dive depth. Primarily for for scuba diving.
U-AZ: For out-door photography while canoeing or kayaking with long zoom lenses
