      Comments about Canon WP-DC53 Waterproof Case for PowerShot G1 X Mark II:

      Overall, I was very impressed with the housing. Relative to previous WP-DC models the majority of the controls are available through the housing. The flash diffuser is moderately effective as well, which is a drastic improvement from past models. This is a thoughtfully built, entry level housing.
      Importantly, the Canon G1x mark ii performs so so underwater. The photo quality I would say is marginally better than lower quality powershot models. The speed of focussing is still too slow for shooting moving targets underwater. The f2 aperture is nice, but focussing in low light is so slow that it almost entirely negates the advantage of the large aperture.
      I would say that this housing-camera combo is a good choice for people who are looking for a high end point and shoot. This does not come close to SLR quality or speed of focussing.
