User Opinions

Canon WP-DC28 Waterproof Case User Reviews

Does the Job
“I took it diving with me, the deepest at 100 feet, and it never gave me problems. If you are to take it diving, I suggest that you bring down the casing first, without the camera, and put a sheet of tissue in the casing. If the tissue gets wet, then something must be wrong with how you sealed it, and check the o-ring again. I strongly suggest that you search the web for o-ring maintenance tips and follow it diligently. And keep it from impact. Make sure you wrap it in cloth or something to cushion it against blows or scratches. “ – By Bamboo Flamingo

I Rarely Leave Home Without It
“The Canon WP-DC28 Waterproof Case for the Canon PowerShot G10 Digital Camera is an excellent buy. Over the past several years, I have used the Canon G6, G9, and now use the G10 for 75% of my outdoor photography. In general, my G10 lives in its fabulous waterproof case virtually 24/7, and I rarely leave home without them. This case keeps my G10 clean, dust free, and protected from virtually all elements. “ – By Penetralia

great accessory for your diving vacation!
“The Canon WP-DC28 waterproof case works as advertised… no leaks. It’s very well made, and complements the rugged construction of the Canon Powershot G10 it is made for. All the external controls, and menu access, are provided by large, bright blue & yellow buttons and knobs. It is well engineered.” – By K. Henderson

Great UW Housing
“This is my second Canon UW housing–1st was Canon 860 and this for a G-10. On my first dive (in the tropics)I experienced fogging on inside of case and lost some interesting shots–not sure what caused it but was easily remedied by inserting small silica pack that lasted for the next 7 days. No probs with many dives to ~30M… Absolutely easy to use and great results for the money! “ – By Cliffbouy

Exactly what I expected
“The product is very well crafted, with good finishing, and it comes with good instructions on how to keep it. It also comes with a lubricant for the O-ring, and teaches exactly how to do it. Maybe it should come with something like a sheet with the sayings “read this first” and advise you not to make the first underwater trial with the camera in the case, like i stupidly did, and try something like it was suggested in the first review. Lukily, nothing went wrong, and the O-ring was very well placed.” – By Daniel Nogoceke Sifuentes

water proof case oh yeah
“This case is pretty much awesome, it allows me to take shots of my buddys while we’re surfing, i can take pics when snorkeling, and also when I’m commercial fishing I can have my camera ready on deck with out worrying that its going to get ruined. The only thing that i can say negative about it is that when in a selected scene mode you can not change between scene modes because there is no dial. “ – By Cale J. Laduke

Works as advertised
“The case is easy to use and all the buttons are accessible (except the ring as I mentioned). The case is completely waterproof, I didn’t have one hint of water inside it. I did take it down to about 25 feet a few times. I really enjoyed taking my G10 under water. It looks like I will keep my G10 for a long time since I don’t think I will buy another underwater case anytime soon. The G10/WP-DC28 combo will be my underwater kit for the extended future…” – By Michi

So Far So Great!
“Went on 11 dives (up to about 110 feet) and 4-5 snorkel trips with this. So far, it hasn’t disappointed. No leaks, all the dials & buttons work fine. I think they could’ve came up with a better way to attach the flash diffuser plate. It kinda just “clicks” on. Because it’s a thin piece of plastic sticking out there, sometimes it’ll come off (accidental bump, heavy current, initial jump in the water). Make sure the strap is on so you won’t lose it.” – By S. Tanaka

Good housing for the money
“This worked really well. You’re prolly going to want the slip on adapter for the front of the lens port to hold macro add-on lenses. It did need the weight system as it was positively buoyant, but I just taped a few automotive wheel weights to an “L” bracket that I had left over from my 35mm SLR days.” – By robert

A big reason to buy a Canon Powershot over others
“First off, I love Canon Powershots because of the image quality and design and function. But secondly, I love Canons because they make the best underwater housings for most of their models. They are good to 130ft, which is better than most. And, really, most recreational divers would have little reason to dive beyond 130ft. I have taken it to as deep as 91ft. I shot some amazing video in addition to still shots, and everything on this housing works the way it should.” – By fishgeek

Great Value
“This housing is a great value. It cost about 1/3 of other housings but works fine. I have taken it on one dive trip and got in about 22 dives with it so my durability rating is based on that. The housing is positive buoyant so if you like your housings neutral or negative add quite a bit of weight. It is very positive so keep this in mind. I did not have a strobe on this trip and got some very good shots.” – By Jacqui K. Dillon

Sooooo Cool – post trip update
“Case worked beautifully for snorkelling! I got some awesome shots – in and out of the water – and absolutley no catastrophic disasters! I did follow the directions and used the provided silicon gel for the “o” ring every time I put the camera in the case, and most importantly, I didn’t remove the camera from the case until I was back in the hotel/cabin at the end of the day so that I could rinse it with fresh water and pat the case dry BEFORE opening the case and removing the camera. Worked like a charm; excellent investment that I will use again and again.” – By L. Allen
