Canon WP-DC13 Waterproof Case User Reviews
“I purchased the case for my trip to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, and it worked great. I took it with me every day snorkeling and SCUBA diving down to depths of 80 feet with no problem. I would definitely recomend this product to anyone.” – By Betapi649
WORTH THE EXPENSE!
“I recently bought this waterproof case for my Canon SD1000 and I absolutely LOVE it!!! I debated over it because of the price- but being able to take pictures and video underwater of the kids is PRICELESS to me!! It is so much fun to take to a waterpark to and not have to worry about damaging my new camera!! We just went to Myrtle Beach and I got some great video of the waves splashing over us and in the pool. Another great thing is that on the beach I don’t have to worry about getting sand in my camera lens as well!!” – By J. Steinke
“It was great to finally be able to take underwater digital photos and toss the film camera. I was able to use EVERY function on the camera under water including on\off and playback. Perfect!” – By Carl Wutkee
Pricey but effective
“Took this on a trip to Jamaica to use with my SD1000 and had no problems. Made it convenient to take photos in the pool, on the beach, in the ocean, under a waterfall without worry. Photos came out just as well in the case as out and should satisfy the average user. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because it’s priced so high even with the Amazon’s $70 off list price. A price under $150 would make it a no-brainer accessory for the SD1000. “ – By janehofstra
Dry housing makes my vacation last all for years
“Canon WP-DC13 Waterproof Case for Canon SD1000 Digital Camera
People are always asking how I get such clear underwater pictures, I think that says alot right there. The dry housing is easy to use, allowing me to review my dip in the ocean for months on end. Living in northern Minnesota that’s just about as good as an insurance policy.” – By Sara K. Edwards
Attended the expectation, and looks robust
“I’m simplifying the fact but it’s like that, such as precautions to not add dirt and sand inside or handle with care the hubber etc. A minimum care on utilizing it is required, but it’s simple to use and really effective on results. Many diving professionals were impressed with the stuff, which was not so much known in the market (they are more used to Cibershot’s housings or other professional cases, not a housing for a common standard Canon digital camera like this. “ – By Eduardo Itar Kimura
Awesome underwater case
“We found that it was better to leave the flash on and photos came out better when you were at least 2-5 feet away from the target though it did take some pretty awesome pananoramic pictures. Despite using the cameras’ underwater setting photos came out bluish especially if the flash was not used or ineffective because of distance. We were very impressed and are not looking to upgrade as we were satisfied with photo quality.” – By G. Otero -. Perez
” It’s nice when a product is designed well enough to actually do everything it’s advertised to, and the Canon WP-DC13 is one of those products. Performed flawlessly down to 60 feet. The flash diffuser seems like a bit of a kludgy add on, but it does provide a better image when using the flash and did not get in the way. The manual is also well-written and helpful. “ – By William T. Ralston
” What surprised me most was that the case with the camera in it had only slightly positive buoyancy meaning that underwater I wasn’t in a constant fight with the camera. Took great shots, including ‘movie mode.’ Would not snorkel with out it. A couple of tips. In camera mode, make sure you’re using the underwater setting. The manual that came with the case tells you how to do this. In video mode (no instructions with the case, you’ll need to check your manual), you want to pick a high frame rate and use the vivid color mode. “ – By P. Redel
