I bought the underwater housing specifically for a diving holiday on the Maldives. What i really found great was the great workmanship reasonable price and that you have control of all the cameras functions. The housing was used for diving snorkeling and on the beach and for some snapshots while swimming in the ocean. The fotos and videos are excellent and i never had any problems with leaks etc. The canon G11 also has a special underwater mode which means no problems with white balance etc. Only con is the size as this makes the camera quite bulky but i guess this is a price worth paying considering the depth that it is waterproof too.
Diving around the world light and compact ideal for airline travel- a must. Strong material which is great on dive boats. Full range of function buttons for my Cannon G12. By far the best combination of housing and camera I have used.
Wherever the action leads you whether onto the beach or into the sea your Canon PowerShot digital camera can come with you -- when its safe inside this Canon Underwater Case. Enjoy the fun and the freedom of being able to take any photo you want whenever and wherever you want. With the Canon WP-DC34 waterproof case for the Canon PowerShot G11 & G12 you can use your digital camera to take underwater shots at depths of up to 130 (40m). Of course its also ideal for taking worry-free pictures in the rain at the beach or on the ski slopes. You can use your cameras internal flash for lighting purposes or use the internal flash to trigger a slaved external strobe like those made by Fantasea Sea & Sea Ikelite or Sealife. The camera has an underwater white balance setting for available light photography. Key Features: Durable and resistant to corrosion clear view of the camera information and control functions Housing accesses most camera functions (does not allow F stop or shutter speed control in manual mode) Small enough to use for other sporting activities like skiing or fishing
