Underwater Cameras

Water covers approx 70% of the world, to explore it with your camera you'll need an underwater housing. We have a large range of underwater equipment available including housings for most cameras, both compact and SLR, strobe systems, filters, conversion lenses and spares.

Please note the warranty on underwater housings does not cover damage to your camera caused by water ingress. It is your responsibility to insure your equipment with a specialist underwater equipment insurance company.

Dive Lights         
A dive light is a really useful accessory for snorkellers and scuba divers. Not just used for night dives, a dive light can be perfect for exploring a cave or a ship wreck and even just enabling you to recover colours that are normally lost whilst underwater. Also perfect for use with your underwater camera, acting as both a modelling and focus light.

Ewa Marine Video Housings         
Ewa Marine flexible housings are available for a wide range of camcorders (modern HD models plus many standard definition and older models). The housings are made from tough double laminate clear PVC, and provide a flat optical glass window for the lens. The housing is closed and sealed by an anodised aluminium clamping rail, which is secured by captive handwheel nuts. Most camera controls can be operated through the flexible plastic. These housings reduce in volume as the depth increases. A maximum operating depth of 10m is recommended for most models, not because water will enter the housing, but because a point will be reached where the housing will cling tightly to the camera and the controls will become difficult or impossible to operate. Buoyancy can be adjusted by adding optional ballast weights, either internally or externally, depending on the model. Please note the warranty on underwater housings does not cover damage to your camera caused by water ingress. It is your responsibility to insure your equipment with a specialist underwater equipment insurance company.

Compact Camera Housings         
The majority of the large camera manufacturers produce underwater housings for models in their range which will be dedicated to each camera, therefore giving you access to the camera's full range of functions such as zoom and shooting modes. Most of the housings are depth rated to 30 or 40 metres but there are some less expensive models which are rated to 3 metres which are fine for snorkelling.

Strobes & Flash Housing         
An underwater housing usually allows the use of the camera's built in flash which is fine for subjects close to the lens but for better results and to help reduce backscatter an external flash or strobe is recommended. The can either fit using the housings external hot shoe or on a bracket and are fired either using a slave sensor on the flash or via a dedicated TTL cable.

O-Rings         
The o-ring is the seal that keeps out water once the housing is closed and is an essential part to keep clean and proper maintained. Failure to do so results in the housing flooding and a very wet camera. It is vital to keep at least one spare o-ring in your camera bag because if the o-ring you are using breaks or deforms in any way you cannot use the housing.
