Canon WP-DC9 WaterProof Case User Reviews

Not just for underwater photography
“With wide angle lens, image stabilizer, and underwater scene mode, SD800 is an ideal underwater ultra compact (high ISO could be better though). WP-DC9 comes with a flash diffusion plate attachment, which when attached, diffuses SD800′s flash to even underwater lighting. Setting SD800 to macro mode, you can get stunning results while snorkeling and scuba diving.” – By NutMac

Great waterproof case
“I bought this case for a trip we were taking to the Bahamas. The case is very easy to use, and all the cameras functions are available though it. The camera is very easy to install and remove. We had a great time with it and used it every day. The camera has underwater settings that i highly recommend you use. It is also a good idea to trun the display brightness up to the max so you can see it better while underwater. “ – By Michael R. Josiah

Great product
“This is the right case for this camera. Depth tested by the manufacturer to 130 ft. I had mine at 135 feet with no leakage or problems. Controls are easy to work with. Takes very good pictures considering the price, but does not compete with underwater cameras costing several thousand dollars. (I just came from an Alaskan dive cruise where we had several professional photographers.) Still, for an entry level photographer that does not want a big investment and wants a combo underwater and land camera that takes very good pictures, this is the way to go.” – By R. Cambridge

“This is a waterproof case for a point and shoot digital camera. So you can take your “Don’t make me think about settings” camera with you. Perfect for snorkeling, diving, kayacking or walking in rain forests. All the camera controls are available at all times. It is so small and simple I doubt I will ever dive again without it. The eqivalent of my wife putting the camera in her purse. The 28MM lens of the SD 800 allows you to get closer to your subject. The closer you get the better the picture.” – By R. Husband

“Holy cow! It’s a fantastic case. It is rated to any depth that I care to visit on a casual dive (130 ft), yet it is small enough to be used as a protective shell at the beach, or in the rain. It supports in camera flash underwater, and will also trigger any pro level underwater flash. The camera itself (like many of it’s brethren) offers an UW mode that corrects color balance for non flash scenes at depths up to 40 feet or so.” – By Jim Krupnik

Worth the price
“I use this to take pictures and videos of my 16 month old to learn to swim and the pictures are amazing. I feel very secure putting my camera in this case. There are buttons on the outside for every control. Using goggles makes it easier to see the screen under water. I cannot wait to use it for snorkeling. “ – By Software Geek

Must have for SD800 IS owners
“This is an awesome case. I felt completely comfortable using my camera underwater with this great case. It’s really solid feeling and build so that you can fully access and use all the features of your camera. Compared to other cases, the price is great – about half the cost of the camera. So to keep your investment safe, there’s nothing better.” – By A. Suttles

“If you are an outdoor person this is the product for you to have! I had always wanted this case but since it’s expensive I never decided on buying it until a trip to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia came up. I bought the case and since then, never stopped using it. Now every time I am on a boat, or at the beach; not necessarily under water, I feel that my camera is safe and nothing will do any harm. The pictures under water have an excellent quality and all functions of the camera are fully available!” – By Luis F. Luciani

SD800 IS underwater case
“I bought this after asking fellow divers about it. It worked great. We went down about 80 feet (rated to 130) and no problems at all. I did not find it needed the extra weights that can be added to change the bouyancy at all. We kept the camera in the case for most of our vacation since we were doing water activities most days and were at the beach.” – By GAdiver

This Camera case Rocks
“This camera case rocks. I used it for my recent trip to the Dominican Republic. It allowed me to use my beloved Canon SD800 is to it’s fullest potential. I took it snorkleing, swimming with dolphins, and even in the resort pool/beach. It worked like a charm. It is a bit costly, but well worth the investment if you love your camera as much as I do. Pictures came out amazing. “ – By Kelly Mattesen
