Canon WP-DC31 Waterproof Case User Reviews
“Flash Diffuser. I recently took a course in photography and have learned a lot about lighting , including the benefits of a diffuser, so was very happy to see that this housing has one, which the old one did not. It’s amazing how much difference it makes!! All the shots which required a flash look naturally lit, none of the harsh defined shadows I would get before. This can be the difference between a beautiful shot and one that gets deleted.” – By Ijano
“This case is better than I ever would have imagined. It is SOLID. High quality materials throughout, and absolutely no flex. The hinges are strong, and the seals are tight. Every single button and switch on the camera can be used through the case. The clear areas of the case are VERY clear, and you can see every detail through it. There is zero loss of detail when viewing the LCD. It’s truly amazing…” – By Jeff Kraus
Near perfect but scraches way to easily
“I got this case so I could try taking photos in wet conditions and while scuba diving. For scuba diving I found this case to be ideal. Easy to seal up, all controls functioned nicely though the case. Very good picture quality…” – By Mark Henderson
Great except for one teeny weeny detail
“This is an outstanding camera housing, but I have one complaint (and I do realize that I am to blame, but still) – with the teeny string that attaches the diffuser to the case (to prevent it from being lost if it should come off), I accidentally managed to get that caught in the seal while preparing for a night dive, and at 45 feet the seal popped and flooded the case. “ – By M. Cole
Possibly the best gadget I’ve ever purchased despite the price!
“The case is very well made, feels solid, latches very securely and tight. The external buttons and switches overlay the camera perfectly, and the camera fits in the case snuggly like a glove. Case is crystal clear and so is the lens. The included diffuser makes a HUGE difference in pictures…without it you get a dark shadow in the lower right hand corner of pictures because the case has a tubelike extension to accomodate for your lens zooming in and out in the case..this blocks some of the flash from getting to the other corner of your picture. “ – By Mehlani
Excellent with a few suprises!
“I used this case everyday and couldn’t be happier with it. The controls work flawlessly (once you quickly get used to them; I should have practiced a little using this camera one handed and without looking, which was how I used it while diving). Viewing the screen through the case was great and of course the picture quality is excellent, even the HD video. To my suprise, the audio recorded really well, both above and below water! I had expected the audio to be useless while in the case, it was only slightly muffled.” – By A. Stonefield
