Capture sharp, detailed photos and video at depths as great as 50' beneath the surface with your Canon EOS R5 mirrorless camera in Ikelite's Underwater Housing with DL Port Mount and Vacuum Valve. Ergonomic mechanical controls, including pushbuttons, knurled knobs/dials, and levers, afford access to virtually all camera functions. Built for durability, the enclosure is made in the USA from a corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and ABS plastic blend. It's white on the front, top, sides, and bottom but clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain your view of the camera's rear controls. The supplied aluminum tray with a left-hand quick release grip affords improved balance and handling while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm.

Add an optional B1A Bulkhead #46002 and Canon C1 Hotshoe (Manual) #46071 to enable reliable electrical triggering of external strobes. For TTL operation, add the optional DL5 DS Link Canon TTL Converter B1A Bulkhead and CT1 TTL Hotshoe Kit #46076 with a compatible Ikelite DS strobe. The DS Link can be programmed to the camera's specific TTL protocol and supports both first curtain and rear curtain sync up to the camera's maximum flash sync speed. Exposure compensation can be 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.

The housing ships without a required lens port, and it accepts all Ikelite Dry Lock (DL) series dome and flat ports for a broad array of zoom, macro, and wide-angle lenses. Zoom gears are available for many lenses, as well. For full compatibility details, see the port chart. The DL port system accommodates lenses with large diameters and provides added security against leaks at the surface, thanks in large part to the included vacuum valve for checking watertight integrity before the dive. You'll need to pick up the required pump to remove excess air and actually create a vacuum.
