Wondering what to give your dive buddy (or yourself) this holiday season? We've got just the thing for every budget and every level of photographer.
We love making these videos for you. Our only wish this holiday season is to get a little love from you by clicking the Like + Subscribe buttons on our YouTube channel.
1 | FCON T02 Fisheye Lens with Dome Port
Number one is for all of those Olympus TG-6 shooters out there, and there are a LOT of them. It’s the FCON T02 fisheye lens with dome port. This is so much fun to shoot because it’s compact and lightweight compared to wide angle wet lenses. It also gives you really sharp images and video throughout the entire zoom range. You can shoot everything from over under split shots to macro close up without taking it off. It’s sold as the dome with lens for those who already have a housing, or you can buy the housing with the dome port already installed like you see here.
2 | Canon R10 Housing + Camera Kit Bundle
Number two on our list is Ikelite VP John Brigham's favorite system to shoot right now. We're talking about the Canon EOS R10, which is a compact interchangeable lens camera. It’s combination of size and ergonomics make it the most enjoyable system to shoot. Our friend Nirupam at Underwater Photography Guide mentioned that switching to this system cut about 10 pounds out of his luggage AND he had more fun shooting.
If you or someone you know is serious about shooting great stills and video underwater, then this is the system we recommend. It’s available as a bundle with the housing, zoom dome port, R10 camera body, and 18-45mm lens, all for under $2400 with the instant savings promotion that’s only lasting through December.

3 | Cable Grip
If you follow our YouTube channel then you know the Cable Grip is one of Ikelite President Jean Rydberg's must have accessories. It’s lighter and less bulky than rope style top handles. When you use it with our arms then you can take advantage of the unique sliding feature which allows it to act as a shoulder carry strap when you’re walking around with your gear.

4 | Dome Diffuser for Strobes
We can tell from our growing backorders that a lot of shooters have a pair of the new DS230 strobes at the top of their list this year. They are the ultimate investment for anyone wanting to improve their underwater photography. But for our friends already shooting our DS160 or DS161 strobes, a pair of dome diffusers would be a welcome addition to any gear bag. The dome diffuser gives an even wider and softer beam and will also work for you when you eventually upgrade to the more powerful DS230.

5 | Gift Cards
If you don’t know what to buy or maybe want to put your money into something safer than crypto, we also sell gift cards in either digital form or the classic wallet style. Wrap one up with a set of stickers and you’re all set.
Get the gear: Ikelite Gift Card (Physical Card) OR Ikelite eGift Card (Electronic Delivery)

6 | Exuma Expedition with Ikelite on the Aqua Cat Liveaboard
Ready for the ultimate gift to you and your dive buddy? How about a winter escape with the Ikelite crew to the Exumas. There are just a few spots left to join us on the Aqua Cat luxury dive liveaboard departing January 28, 2023. We can match up single divers and I promise we’re all friendly!
