This Ikelite DS 160 Mark II and TTL converter package opens the gateway to a world of creativity and gives you the ultimate freedom to compose your photos without worrying if you have proper exposures. Ikelite's TTL electronics are designed specific to every camera model so that every time you hit the shutter, the Ikelite DS 160 strobe knows exactly how much light you need. You can still shoot in TTL when you are on manual mode on your camera, so you still have full control over your photos. TTL allows you to focus on composition and capture photos with good exposures on subjects that are constantly moving. Combined with insanely fast recycle times from the Ikelite DS 160, you couldn't be better equipped for any lighting situation.

Are you looking for the best full frame camera? Here are our favorites from Canon, Nikon, and Sony!

 

 

Canon EOS R5

 

The Canon EOS R5 is our favorite camera of 2020. It features an amazing specs sheet ranging from a new high resolution 45 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor to 8K RAW, 4:2:2 10-bit video recording. The R5 has been updated with new features like in-body image-stabilization, animal eye autofocus, 100% AF coverage, and 12 fps/20 fps electronic burst shooting. Due to these impressive specs, the R5 is a top camera for underwater photographers and videographers and a top focus for underwater housing manufacturers. It's a great camera with excellent image quality, fast autofocus, and compatability with both RF and EF lenses (when using an EF-R adapter). 

 

 
$6,641.10
$5,802.61

 

The staff at Bluewater think the three options above are the best tools to get started taking underwater photo and video with the EOS R5. The Ikelite Canon Ultimate Package is a very affordable package that allows you to take photos with quick, accurate exposures with Ikelite's unbeatable TTL capability. The Nauticam Canon EOS R5 ultimate package has everyhing you need to bring a top-quality, aluminum housing underwater with the Canon EOS R5. The Isotta and Aquatica packages are an incredible value for money for aluminum housing systems to bring your R5 underwater. And finally, the Sea & Sea R5 package offers an elegant aluminum housing with the best TTL option for Sea & Sea strobes. You get additional discounts with this package as the Sea & Sea YS-D2J's are on sale, but if you're interested in adding YS-D3's please reach out to us for a great price. 

 


Sony A1
 
If money is no object, then there is no arguing that the Sony A1 is the best full-frame camera for underwater photos and videos. As Sony's flagship, the A1 is the camera that the tech giant has deemed "worthy" of the first integer. It is a masterful showcase of the crème de la crème in imaging technology from a company that consistently leads the pack in innovation. And the specs sheet is not just eye-catching - it's novel. The Sony A1 boasts a new 50 megapixel stacked CMOS sensor that can shoot in 30 fps bursts with the electronic shutter as well as 8K/30p & 4K/120p video recording. Most notably, the camera's sensor features the unique ability to sync with underwater strobes using the electronic shutter - unlocking the capability of shooting 30 fps bursts with fast strobes like the Sea & Sea YS-D3 and the Ikelite DS 161s. If you are searching for the best of the best, this one is for you.
 
 
       

 


Nikon Z7 II
 
No doubt, Nikon's flagship, Z7 II fullframe mirrorless camera is an excellent piece of equipment! We love the Z7 II for its sharp, high resolution 45 megapixel files, beautiful oversampled 4K video, and effective in-body image-stabilization. The Nikon Z7's autofocus is slightly less advanced than the Canon EOS R5, but the Z7 II makes up for that with great Fmount and Zmount lens options and a high quality user experience. We think the files from the Nikon Z7 II are the easiest to edit out of all three cameras, and have been very happy with the camera as a whole. 

 

 
$5,629.99
$5,555.00
 
$3,495.89
 

Our Isotta Nikon Z 7II package is our top choice fo this camera. The package comes with a free macro lens and a high-quality ferrari-red housing. We love Isotta housings because they are an ergonomic, tight fit to the camera and are super light underwater. The Ikelite Z 7II package is a great option for Z 6II users who might have a slightly smaller budget, and Z 7II users that want to use some of Ikelite's great accessories including their TTL converters.

Our video packages are designed for dedicated videographers. The Nauticam Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K package is a great option for anyone looking for cinema quality video in a compact size. The BMPCC 4K takes micro-four thirds lenses which means you have a lot of high quality options available that are also affordable. We recommend using dual Kraken 5000s+ video lights with this package. The Nauticam Canon EOS R5 video package is our top video package. It's designed for those that need the best of the best for underwater video. The Canon EOS R5 is capable of taking high quality 8K RAW video as well as 4K video at 120 fps. We love the beautiful colors and quality this camera can capture. We think the R5 is perfectly paired with Light & Motion's advanced video kit. Dual Sola 15,000s are enough light for any situation and the blue filters will help you even out the white balance between the abmient light and your video lights. The Ikelite Sony a6600 video package is the perfect kit for anyone who wants to get started taking great underwater video. This package not only includes a camera and lens, but it also includes two Kraken 5000S+ video lights. The sony a6600 is a great all-around video camera that captures high quality 4K video.

Canon R6

The Canon EOS R6 is Canon's newest prosumer level full-frame mirrorless camera released alongside the EOS R5. The only real difference from the R5 is a drop in resolution for both photo and video. The R6 features a 20.1 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and is capable of 4K video at 60 fps using 94% of the sensor width. The R6 has been updated with new features like in-body image-stabilization, animal eye autofocus, 100% AF coverage, and 12 fps/20 fps electronic burst shooting. Due to these impressive specs, the R6 is a top camera for underwater photographers and videographers and a top focus for underwater housing manufacturers. It's a great camera with excellent image quality, fast autofocus, and compatability with both RF and EF lenses (when using an EF-R adapter).

There are plenty of high-quality options available to get started taking photos and video underwater. On the most affordable end, we recommend the Olympus TG-6 camera which is capable of shooting excellent macro photos and wide angle photos with the right accessories. The Olympus TG-6 does not offer the capability to shoot in manual mode. Next, we recommend the Canon G7X Mark II and Mark III which allow you to shoot in manual mode. The Sony RX100 VI and VII are the highest end compact cameras on the market with high quality images and video.
