Excerpt: Used this weekend while kayaking n the San Juan Islands. Worked well, perfect fit for the camera, clear photos, no issues with water. Best of all didn't need to worry about about getting things wet. Will use again in a couple of months while snorkeling. Would recommend if your into wet activities.
Excerpt: I bought this housing to take down to Cancun this year, 2011. Although I had read that others experienced fogging between the lenses, I purchased it because I didn't want to spend more money than the camera costs (such as the case with the Ikelite). The case works well allowing the user access to enough of the controls for taking pictures underwater.
Excerpt: I took this snorkeling in Cozumel and got the most amazing pictures; so much better than when I used to buy those disposable underwater cameras! It is easy to assemble and easy to use. I was worried about other reviewers who didn't like the limited functions (mostly not being able to delete photos). But that wound up being a non-issue for me. After all, who takes the time to review and delete photos while snorkeling in the ocean?!
Excerpt: This product is great! I reviewed a lot of cameras for underwater and the reviews only started getting decent at around $300. This saves you half of that and works great! I was a little scared of taking it underwater, but when I accidentally dropped it in the ocean and nothing happened, Im sure it will do the job. I use it just around water but I am not afraid of dropping it in the water.
Pros: Easily Loaded Equipment, Seals Easily, Strong Construction
Excerpt: A relatively new diver, I bought this to improve my underwater photography beyond the sad disposable cameras. The directions for loading the camera, maintaining the seal and general care were clear. Underwater I experimented with and without flash as well as with attached diffuser. Image previews looked great underwater. Buttons do not allow you to scroll through pics with housing, but that could be a good safety feature.
Excerpt: Purchased this housing to take down to Cancun. I had read other reviews indicating some fogging issues between the lenses. The fogging also happened to me when going between the cooler rivers and the warmer ambient air. It did keep the camera dry and allowed me to take some great pictures, when the lense wasn't fogged up. You definitely need to use the flash diffuser, or you get a shadow on the lower right of the picture.
Pros: Cheaper than the Ikelite, Easily Loaded Equipment, Lightweight, Seals Easily
Excerpt: I recently purchased this Canon waterproof case and found after the first use the the glass lens cover was permanently fogged thus preventing any further photos. Obviously a manufacturing defect. The glass lens cover is composed of two layers and once fogged cannot be de-fogged or wiped. Canon provided ZERO support for their waterproof cases and should this happen you are completely out of luck!
Excerpt: Case worked great when I used in on a dive trip in Maui. The case went down to 90' with no issues. Controls are easy to use although you cannot access all the cameras features while the camera is in the case. You are able to switch between the underwater, beach, snow, auto, and video settings, turn flash on off and to auto, switch between the macro, infinity, and normal setting, use the zoom, and view pictures.
