Canon EOS R10 Underwater in La Paz Mexico / Bahamas / Florida [VIDEO]

The Canon EOS R10 is one of our favorite systems to shoot underwater because of the level of technology it provides at a tremendous value. See examples of underwater photos and video shot with a variety of popular lenses including the 18-45mm kit lens, the Tokina 10-17mm Fisheye, and the RF 100mm Macro.

Is the Canon EOS R10 right for you?

If you're looking for fast autofocus, outstanding dynamic range, and great battery life, then you're in luck. The sizing of the system - about half the size of the 200DL line - makes it so easy to travel with and shoot underwater. 

It's been a long time since we've been this excited about a camera... After a month of diving with the Canon EOS R10, it's clear that it is the best value underwater camera system ever created.

Setting It Up: Canon R10 Underwater Housing with Kit Lens 

The price-to-performance ratio on the Canon R10 blows its competition out of the water. It's such a great deal we decided to make a  200DLM/D Underwater Housing and Canon EOS R10 Camera Complete Kit out of it!

Whether you're upgrading, downsizing, or just getting ready for your next trip- the EOS R10 system is a great choice. In fact, it's our top mirrorless system right now due to its unique combination of size, imaging quality, and value. The camera's ergonomics make it perfectly suited for comfortable use underwater.

Follow along as Ikelite VP and Head of Product Development John Brigham shows you how to set up the Canon R10 camera with kit lens inside the Ikelite 200DLM Underwater Housing with Dome Port


Add TTL Strobes to the Canon R10 Underwater Housing

Adding a set of strobes is the fastest and best way to elevate your underwater images. Shooting through water is like shooting through a thick fog. The water absorbs most of the sun's light, resulting in a grainy and colorless landscape. Firing a bright light within 3-5 feet of your subject will stop motion and add color and clarity to your images.

Jean Rydberg, President of Ikelite, walks you through setting up a tray with handles, dual DS160 II strobes, sync cord, and DL5 DS Link TTL Converter on the 200DLM Underwater Housing
