Ikelite Announces Canon EOS R100 Housing and Kits
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, August 3, 2023 @ 01:00 AM (EST)

Ikelite has announced its housing for the EOS R100, Canon’s 24MP entry-level APS-C camera. The pared down camera—which has a body-only MSRP of just $480—features a semi-mechanical shutter, only a handful of buttons, and a fixed rear LCD with no touch sensitivity. However, the camera can still shoot 3.5fps bursts with Servo AF as well as capture uncropped 1080/60p video—which is all most beginners are likely to need.

Ikelite’s housing for the EOS R100 boasts an ultra-compact form factor and uses the company’s Dry Lock Micro (DLM) port system. Otherwise, you’re getting all the important features of Ikelite housings: ABS-PC body with transparent back; big, easy-to-use control lever for shutter release; and out-of-the-box manual triggering of strobes via an Ikelite bulkhead. You have the option of TTL automatic strobe exposure by adding the optional DL5 DS Link TTL Converter.

The housing is available in a variety of configurations: (i) on its own ($795), (ii) with dome port and zoom gear for the Canon RF-S 18–45mm f/4.5–6.3 IS STM kit lens ($1,050), and (iii) with dome port, zoom gear for the 18–45mm kit lens, tray with dual handles, vacuum pump, and a set of spare O-rings ($1,295). For extra convenience, Ikelite is also selling a kit version of configuration (ii) and kit version of configuration (iii), which includes the camera with the 18–45mm kit lens, priced at $1,650 and $1,895, respectively.

Pre-Dive Checks

There is no greater assurance than being able to see your camera and o-ring seal through the back of the housing. 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. Once the housing is closed you can see the o-ring form a solid, waterproof seal.

We recommend adding the optional Vacuum Kit with 1/2" Valve # 47012 to pull a vacuum on the housing and check for leaks prior to entering the water.

Construction

Our specially formulated ABS-PC blend housing is highly durable yet significantly lighter than aluminum. The light color keeps your camera cooler when shooting in warm, sunny environments.

Lens Support

Ikelite lens ports are the lightest on the market, yet robust and capable of standing up to rough surf.

We support a wide variety of lenses. Most popular zoom lenses and select focus rings can be engaged using simple gearing that puts adjustment right at your fingertips. Zoom and focus gears differ depending on which lens you are using.

Lens ports and zoom gears sold separately. Refer to the appropriate port chart for compatibility information.

Wi-Fi Transfer

Use the camera's built-in Wi-Fi feature to download photos to another device without removing the camera from the housing. The Wi-Fi feature is only usable above water within close proximity to the connected device.

Compatibility

Unless otherwise noted, this housing does not accommodate the use of add-on grips, battery grips, eyepieces, LCD covers, or other accessories.

Differences in lens and control placement prevent other camera models from being used in or adapted to this housing. We are not aware of any other models which may be used in or adapted to this housing.
