  • Product Details

    The U-BXP 100 is a special version of the U-BXP housing.

    It has a wider frontglass and allows in combination with the C-A 77 adapter and C-A 82 adapter the use of lenses with a filter thread of 77 and 82mm. This means you can use your professional digital SLR camera like the Canon EOS 1D, 1Ds Series as well as the Nikon D1, D2H, D2X, D200 and similar cameras, with most of the professional wide-angel lenses currently on the market.

    This enables you to use wide-angle lenses with a focal length of 16mm (full format chip) without problems. SLR cameras, which have a smaller chip, can even use the 10mm wide-angel lenses.

    Lenses with a smaller filter diameter can also be used in this housing as long as they have internal focus. You just need the right step-up ring.

    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. 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.

    The U-BXP100 housing is manufactured from double laminated PVC and has an integrated, optically neutral flat glass port. The external flash that is commonly used on SLR cameras fits into the specially designed section on the top of the housing.

    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 waterproof interior and zippered side-pocket.
