Ikelite Canon EOS R6, R6 II Underwater Housing

 

Ikelite has a reputation to produce high quality underwater camera housings, and the Ikelite Canon EOS R6 and R6 II Housing lives up to the name. The housing is small, compact and lightweight which makes it great to bring when going on dive trips. It is also built from ABS-PC material which provides strength and requires minimal maintenance. The housing also has great ergonomics. Button and lever location has been well thought off to make your shooting experience wonderful even when wearing thick gloves.

Key Features:

  • Port System - The housing utilizes Ikelite's Dry Lock Port System. Port system has been designed to be lightweight, robust and can withstand a beating. The system has also been designed to have the o-ring outside to improve visibilty when setting up and reduces the chance of water dropping to your camera.
  • Vacuum System - The housing includes vacuum valve, along with the optional Ikelite Pump with Gauge allows you to draw out air and check if your housing is completely sealed before diving. This provides you the peace of mind and assurance that your camera is safe inside the housing while underwater.
  • TTL Strobe Exposure - The Ikelite Canon EOS R6, R6 II Housing supports both manual shooting and adding Ikelite DL5 DS Link Canon TTL Converter CT1 Hotshoe Kit.
  • Ergonomics & Setup - All important camera function are accessible through the housing. Buttons, levers and knobs are readily available at your finger tips. Setup is also a breeze, camera mount is front-loading for easy installation and removal
  • ViewFinder - The housing comes with Super-Eye Viewfinder provides an enhanced view of the camera's optical viewfinder. It can easily be removed and replaced by Ikelite Enhanced Straight 180 Degree Viewfinder or Ikelite 45 Degree Magnified Viewfinder.
  • Strobe Trigger - Strobes can be triggered using electronic sync cord. Fiber optic strobes are not compatible.

Sample Canon EOS R6 Underwater Photos:

underwater anemone photographed with the Canon EOS R6 in an Ikelite housing

This image shows the beautiful image quality and dynamic range that the R6 is capable of capturing. This anemone was photographed with the Canon EOS R6 and Canon 8-15mm fisheye lens in an Ikelite EOS R6 housing. The image was slightly underexposed and adjusted in post processing. This image shows the quality of the details recovered. f/13, 1/60, ISO 320

Nudibranchs can be tricky to shoot in high current. Autofocus tracking on the Canon EOS R6 helped us track the nudibranch's rhinophores and keep them in focus.1/160, f/11, ISO 200

Canon EOS R6 Mark ii Camera Reviews:

The latest version of Canon's 2020-announced Canon EOS R6 is the Canon EOS R6 Mark II. Although it isn't a significant improvement, the R6 Mark II is a superb prosumer choice for underwater photographers and videographers searching for the Ideal Hybrid Camera. In many areas, we believe it now competes with the Sony A7 IV effectively, making up for some of the Canon EOS R6's shortcomings. With its 24.2 megapixel, higher resolution sensor, the Canon R6 II can capture oversampled 4K video at up to 60 frames per second. The Canon EOS R6 Mark II has a faster frame rate, making it a more alluring camera for both photo and video photographers who may have shied away from the "low" quality, 20 mp sensor first provided on the R6. 

Some inital thoughts and review shared on the Canon R6 Mark ii, followed up by an in depth underwater review where the camera was taken for a test dive off the west coast of USA.

Below are some images taken underwater with the camera:
