Dive way past recreational limits up to 200 feet (60 meters) with 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.

Worth the Upgrade: Canon EOS R5 and R6 Underwater

Find out why these cameras are the best value proposition for full frame mirrorless cameras underwater.

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

Adjustable Ergonomics

Add Trigger Extensions for the shutter lever and back button focus when using an optional Right Quick Release Handle.

Professional Lighting

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.


Cable Top Grip

A carrying handle is essential for transport to and from the dive site. Attaches without tools to two Ikelite ball mounts or arm extensions.

Strobe Compatibility

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.

Non-Ikelite Strobes

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

Fiber optic only strobes are not compatible with this installation. An external strobe must be connected by electrical sync cord.

Remote Triggering

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).
