Canon WP-DC21 Underwater housing User Reviews
Good housing, with video reservations
” This is a nice, compact, functional housing that works very well for still photography. I’ve used mine to 150′ without any mechanical or leak problems. However, users should be aware that when using the video capabilities of the G9 camera, there is a fair amount of audio “creaking” resulting from case compression that gets recorded along with the video.” – By Dayton Reuter
Excellent value for your money!
” I am an avid Photographer and own a few Canon cameras, so I am very familiar with the quality of most of their products. Still, I was surprised at the superior quality of this housing for the relative low cost. It fits my Canon G9 perfectly and most of the controls can be accessed easily. The flash diffuser works amazingly well. If you shoot a flash photo without it, you’ll see a pronounced shadow on the lower right of the photo, caused buy the lens part of the housing being in the way. Add the diffuser and problem solved!” – By Sky King
More than just a waterproof case
” This case is awesome! That’s all there is to it. You get access to all the controls on the camera except for the thumb-wheel control on the back, but you can still do everything since you have the directional buttons to navigate the menu. It of course makes the whole camera bigger and heavier, but it doesn’t really effect the usability or handling of the camera at all. I got this for taking diving and snorkeling, but after touching and handling it, I’m going to even use it on the beach too!” – By B. McCann
More than just a waterproof case
” I purchased this case to protect my new Canon G 9 while fishing. It is well built, and extremely durable. I never had any concern about dropping the camera in the river, or putting it down in the sand or on stone. The pictures taken through the case are crystal clear. If you have a Canon G 9 and use it in tough conditions, this case will give you the peace of mind to concentrate on your subjects and not the safety of your equipment. This product was worth every penny.” – By Harold P. Pugh
underwater housing for canon G9 digital camera
” This is a wonderful product. It was easy to understand the instructions. easy to get the camera in an out of the housing and best of all I felt very comfortable with my new camera on the beach with all the sand and saltwater. I have yet to dive with it, but am looking forward to taking the camera worry-free underwater. “ – By V. A. Gaston
” Took this case diving the other day, takes fantastic pictures and worked great to 100 feet. Didn’t try any deeper. One big flaw. Because the housing extends forward around the barrel of the camera, the bottom right hand one third of your picture does not get exposed to the flash. Not a real big deal because the camera takes pretty good pictures without the flash even at 70 feet, but if you’re looking to do any serious underwater flash photography, I’d recommend an external strobe. Bottom line, though, it kept the camera dry and almost all the controls are accessible. I was pleased.” – By Roman Izzo
Fantastic case, worth the $$$
” I recently purchased this for a snorkeling trip to Grand Cayman. It was fantastic! All of the controls were operable underwater but I recommend setting the underwater function prior to going into the water as it is difficult to see the setting underwater. I ended up taking more pictures underwater than above ground. Absolutely airtight. I did not end up purchasing the weights as I only used this for snorkeling and had no issues with it floating away. Highly recommended, can’t wait to use it again! “ – By NYCSpark
