Canon WP-DC21 Waterproof Case For Powershot G9 - Retail

 

I had already thrown away the packing and now I can't swap for another one. I am afraid the 2 batteries that charged will not be any good because something is wrong with the charger.

Great Price, and works great

none

Works as advertised

 

I have never had this fogg, as others have reported. This will let the average user take great pics. More suited to snorklers who have the sun to their backs. I tested this to 128 feet in Honduras.

This housing will allow the operator to access all of the buttons on the G9. Made by Canon. Formed from tough polycarbonate material. Costs way less that the nearest alternative, ie Ikelite

Will not accomidate TTL strobe. Does not come with weights

Affordable Housing for a great Camera

 

I'm very happy with my purchase in terms of value for money. The only other underwater housing I was able to locate for a canon G9 was 3x the price. The housing fits my new canon g9 like a glove and it feels solid enough that I am not worried about any...

Cheap - Fits very well - Easy to use - large buttons - Floats

Floats - Garish orange, blue and yellow highlights

Nice case but strobe does not work

 

The flashed area is obscured by the lenses housing. Whenever I fire the strobe, only the top left area of the picture is lit, the right bottom is totally dark. This is a major defect from the design of the case. You will need an external flash.

Nice case, all functions accessible

Flash is obscured

Fogs up

 

Ordinarily, even with no access to a vital function & only the on-camera flash available, this would be a good deal at $160-220. It's not a good deal, because of design flaws. The battery is very strong & may be making more heat. Whatever the cause,...

Easy access to most functions

No access to macro focus function and no hot shoe for strobe.
