About the Camera

Canon calls the EOS Rebel SL1 100D camera "The World's Smallest and Lightest Digital SLR Camera." We call it one of the best packages for underwater use we've ever offered. Enjoy the responsiveness, razor-sharp image quality, and creative control of a DSLR in a truly miniaturized package essential for streamlined air travel. The EOS Rebel SL1 100D camera captures vibrant 18.0 megapixel stills and colorful, full HD video over an impressive 100-12800 ISO range. The included Canon EF-S 18-55mm STM lens is the perfect companion for shooting both wide angle and close-up on a single dive. Let your imagination run wild - there's no limit to what you can do with this system.

True TTL Exposure

TTL or "Through-The-Lens" flash metering means the camera controls flash duration to properly expose an image. Unlike fiber optic systems, which attempt to copy the behavior of the camera's built-in flash, this unique housing for the Canon EOS 100D Rebel SL1 provides direct, electrical transmission of this TTL signal to the strobe*.

Since the camera is talking directly to the strobe, the camera's built-in flash does not need to fire. This dramatically increases battery life and virtually eliminates the recycle lag, allowing the camera to be triggered in more rapid succession than with optical-based systems. When shooting a fast moving object, this make the difference between going home with the shot or just talking about it. Additionally, in-line communication between the strobe and the camera completely eliminates signal interference and false triggering caused by light rays bouncing off the water's surface or your buddy's flash going off.

Optics

This housing comes standard with a optical grade acrylic dome port with zoom ring. This port provides sharp images and zoom capabilities with both the Canon EF-S 18-55mm STM kit lens, plus the popular Tokina 10-17mm lens. Minimal vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image) will be present in the 10-12mm range when used the Tokina lens. A special zoom gear system allows the camera with lens attached to be installed from the back of the housing, without requiring removal of the dome port.

The dome port may be removed without tools to attach the optional Flat Port for the Canon EF-S 60mm Macro lens. Simply loosen the securing thumb screws and slide the port off. The optional Flat Port allows use of the 60mm Macro lens in auto-focus mode and features 67mm front threads for the optional attachment of macro converter wet lenses.

Materials

Special polycarbonate blends allow us to create an extremely strong yet clear and lightweight enclosure. We believe there's no substitute for inspecting the actual o-ring seal once your housing is closed. Our signature clear construction lets you see that the housing is watertight and dry before you enter the water, and provides full view of the camera while you're diving. Polycarbonate is fundamentally corrosion-resistant for easy maintenance year after year.

Like every Ikelite product, this housing is designed, built and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. We pride ourselves in being readily available to help our customers with any need. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and the best service in the dive industry.
