Lightweight and Affordable Creative Control
Get the most out of your Canon R5 camera in surf, shallow water, and pool environments using the 50DL Underwater Housing. The housing provides full creative control over the camera. A dual-action lens release control makes it easy to use either EF or RF series lenses. Our custom ABS-PC blend is lighter than aluminum yet strong enough for almost anything you want to throw at it.
Includes housing and left handle. A lens port is required for waterproof operation (sold separately). The lens port is dependent on which lens(es) you will be shooting. Refer to the DL Lens Port for Canon RF-Mount cameras.

Dry Lock DL Port System
"Dry Lock" refers to the placement of the o-ring on the outside of the port mount. This improves your view of the o-ring and reduces the chances of water dropping onto your camera's sensor.
DL ports are the lightest on the market, yet robust and capable of standing up to rough surf. Attachment is quick and secure. A system of extensions can accommodate a huge variety of lenses with ease. A large, soft-touch knob on the side of the housing makes fine tuned zoom or focus adjustments a breeze. Zoom and focus gears differ depending on which lens you are using.
Our latest ABS-PC blend is lighter than aluminum yet extremely durable and fundamentally corrosion resistant. Every housing is made in the USA, individually inspected for fit, and water pressure tested to 200 feet (60 meters).
Tough Up Front
The 100% clear back plate allows you to see the o-ring seal, the camera, and that the system is dry. With any underwater system, water intrusion is visible long before enough accumulates for a leak sensor could detect it.
Clear In Back
Shoot almost any strobe with manual exposure using the included Ikelite bulkhead and manual hotshoe.
Add a DS Link TTL Converter and Ikelite DS strobe for the fastest, most reliable flash exposure available underwater. The DS Link supports both first curtain and rear curtain sync up to the camera's maximum flash sync speed. Exposure compensation can be used added or subtracted in the camera. A push button and indicator light on the side of the converter make it simple to switch back and forth between TTL and manual exposure underwater.
Ikelite DS Strobes
Ikelite strobes can be used in manual power settings using an Ikelite-to-Ikelite sync cord. TTL exposure function is supported with a compatible DS Link TTL Converter.
Ikelite Non-Digital Strobes
Older non-digital strobes featuring an ICS-5 electrical sync cord bulkhead can be used with this system in manual exposure modes.
SEA&SEA, INON, and Retra strobes with an electrical connection can be triggered in manual exposure modes using an electrical sync cord. Strobes without an electrical sync cord connection cannot be attached to this system unless slaved off of a hard-wired strobe.
Fiber optic only strobes are not compatible with this installation. An external strobe must be connected by electrical sync cord.
Strobes with remote slave capabilities may be triggered off of a flash attached to the housing by electrical sync cord. Ikelite DS strobes support remote triggering using the High-Sensitivity Optical Slave Converter or the Water Wizard system (manufactured and sold by Aquatica).
