Canon cameras are known for their great ergonomics.  Ikelite extended this plan underwater, providing larger controls and push buttons which are easy to access even with thick gloves.  Whenever possible, controls are located in the same configuration as on the camera to replicate the muscle memory and familiarity you've developed with your camera on the surface.  Control symbols laser engraved into the back of the housing will never peel off or fade even with years of use.  The camera's large, super-bright LCD screen is viewable edge-to-edge through the back of the housing.

The front-loading camera mounting system makes installation and removal a breeze.  The camera mounting plate allows ready access to the battery and memory card, and features a standard 1/4-20 mounting point for attachment to a tripod topside.


  • The NEW Dry Lock (DL) Port System gives added security at the surface of the water and accommodates large diameter lenses
  • Extra-large, soft touch zoom knob; Zoom is accessible for many lenses using unique universal zoom gear system
  • Included Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with manual hotshoe for reliable electrical triggering of underwater strobes; optional TTL circuitry provides automatic exposure with compatible Ikelite DS strobes
  • Control symbols are laser etched into the back and will never fade or rub off
  • Quick install camera mount plate does not need to be removed for battery or memory card access
  • Two spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port locations on the front of the housing for the addition of optional accessories
  • Includes a balanced aluminum base with left-hand quick release handle; right-hand handle sold separately

Strobe Options

The Canon 80D built in flash can not be popped up inside this housing.

TTL Exposure
  • Install optional Canon TTL Kit Product number 46070 for automatic TTL exposure with compatible Ikelite DS-model Strobes.  Ikelite DS-model strobes may be used with this system without the Canon TTL Kit installed, but will not provide TTL exposure.

Non-Ikelite Strobes

  • SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos 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.

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.

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 Optical Slave Converter Product number 4403.

Vacuum System

The included vacuum valve allows you to vacuum test the housing to check for leaks prior to putting your expensive equipment in the water.  Combined with a full view of the camera and o-ring seal through the back of the housing, there is no greater assurance that your gear will be safe.  Our signature open-groove design suspends the rear o-ring in a natural position that is easier to maintain and more reliable than forcing the o-ring into a channel.  Use of the vacuum valve requires a compatible Vacuum Pump with Gauge # 47011, sold separately.

The single most important upgrade is Ikelite's long awaited new Dry Lock (DL) port system.  This exciting new system is even more robust and even easier to assembly than the time-tested Four Lock (FL) system.  The new ports are lighter and more adaptable, and can accommodate extremely large diameter lenses with ease.  If you're considering shooting professional quality lenses like the Canon EF 16-35mm Type II/III or the Canon EF 11-24mm, then the DL system is essential.

Most popular zoom lenses and select lens focus rings can be engaged using a simple yet effective gearing system that puts adjustment right at your fingertips.  A large, soft-touch lobed knob on the side of the housing makes fine tuned adjustments a breeze.  Zoom and focus gears differ depending on which lens you are using.  All are lightweight and affordable.  Refer to the DL System Port Chart to choose the correct gear.  Zoom gears sold separately.

Due to differences in mount diameter and zoom engagement, DL and FL system ports cannot be used interchangeably.  The DL port mount may be removed and replaced with old style port locks for legacy users with standard or modular ports from our Four Lock system.  This modification will prevent the use of newer DL ports. The housing cannot be converted back and forth repeatedly.  Re-installation of the DL port base will require the housing to be returned to Ikelite or an Authorized Dealer and may incur additional service charges.
