ewa-marine U-BXP100

Published

on

eweCamera not included with housing

The U-BXP 100 is a special version of the ewa-marine U-BXP underwater camera housing.

It has a wider front glass and allows in combination with the C-A 77 adapter (supplied with the housing) and C-A 82 (available as an accessory from your dealer) 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 angel 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.

Please note: all lenses used with this housing must have a internal focus.

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.

The autofocus adapter (AV110) is not included in delivery as it is not needed for this housing.

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, you 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 utilised.

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 sealing which tighten by means of three screw knobs.

It is supplied in a handy yellow carry-case which has a water-proof interior

Scubapro celebrates 60 years with new limited edition products

Published

on

Starting with the founding of Scubapro in 1963, the brand has consistently pioneered new innovations that enhance the total diving experience. Now to celebrate 60 years of innovation, Scubapro has created two limited-edition products: the MK25 EVO/S620 Ti Carbon BT 60th Anniversary Edition Regulator and the G3 60th Anniversary Edition Dive Computer.

MK25 EVO/S620 Ti Carbon BT Anniversary Edition

The special edition MK25EVO/S620 Ti Carbon BT with red and black color accents, a special protective coating and titanium and carbon fiber components, offers the same premium features as the standard MK25 EVO/S620 Ti Carbon BT combination, but delivers even greater comfort due to its lightweight carbon parts. The limited design makes the Anniversary Edition of the MK25EVO/S620 Ti Carbon BT a very personal and individual highlight on every dive.

G3 Anniversary Edition

The 60th Anniversary special edition of the brand-new Galileo 3 (G3) with red and black color accents is a very special highlight for discerning divers and collectors. It combines a sleek design and modern display with a classic timepiece-look and offers all the functions of a high-quality, modern dive computer.

Both Anniversary products come in a dark gray-washed FSC-certified wooden box engraved with the Scubapro 60 Year Anniversary logo and are only available in limited quantities. They also include a black anodized laser-engraved aluminum tag displaying the progressive serial number of the limited-edition product – a tribute to six decades of Scubapro excellence.

Introducing the new Galileo 3 (G3) Dive Computer from Scubapro

Published

on

Scubapro´s GALILEO 3 (G3) delivers everything you need in an advanced dive computer, with the comfort, style, and utility of a topside wristwatch.

Scubapro has introduced its premium Galileo 3 watch-style dive computer, combining innovative dive computing, a sleek design and modern display, with a classic timepiece look.

The new Galileo 3 (G3) offers all the features and functions of a next-level dive computer along with full timekeeping features for daily topside use. Built to last, the housing and bezel are made of stainless steel, and the lens is sapphire glass for extreme surface hardness and scratch resistance. The vibrant, high-resolution, full-colour TFT LCD display is easy to read at any angle. The rotatable bezel, coated with a self-luminescent material, along with an efficient backlight, ensure excellent visibility in all conditions.

Utilizing Galileo’s trusted menu design and four button controls, navigating through the G3 dive modes, algorithms, screen styles, colour schemes and myriad of other personalized dive management options is extremely intuitive.

For underwater use, the G3 provides a choice of algorithms – Predictive Multi-Gas Buehlmann ZHL-16 ADT MB PMG or ZHL-16 GF (Gradient Factors) and three dive modes – Scuba, Gauge and Freediving, to suit all diving styles. In Scuba mode, four settings are available:  PMG, Trimix, CCR & Sidemount. Wireless air integration monitors tank pressure provides true remaining bottom time (RBT) and allows your air consumption to be factored into the decompression calculation. For pinpoint navigation, a 3D digital tilt-compensated compass comes with a top-view full compass rose display.

The G3 personalized dive management functions include PDIS (Profile Dependent Intermediate Stops) which calculates an intermediate stop based on N2 loading, current and previous dives and breathing mixes, and Microbubble levels that let you adjust the level of conservatism in the algorithm to match your experience level, age, and physical conditioning for safer diving. Optional Heart Rate Monitoring (sold separately) delivers additional individualized real-time data while diving or when engaged in topside activities.

On the surface, the G3 provides a Sport mode with sport-related functions like a swim stroke counter, activity counter and stopwatch for topside sports. The G3 is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery and offers a Bluetooth Low Energy interface that lets you download dives to any iOS or Android device or PC/Mac (firmware can be user-updated).
