        This is my 4th Ikelite housing. Always a good value, Ikelite products are dependable and Ikelite provides outstanding customer service. Haven't been in the water with it yet but have played with the housing extensively in anticipation. All G-12 controls are readily excessible.

            I love the TTL option and all the functions on the camera still work great in the housing. The only down side is the size and bulkyness of the housing but once you are underwater with it, it's not so bad.

                I bought this to finally replace my Nikonos. It performed great and controls all functions of the camera. The housing is a little bulky compared to others but with the handle and strobe it is negatively buoyant. Great product at a reasonable price.

                  I am using this underwater housing for a fashion photography series. This housing is built like a tank and will never let you down. This housing has made me want to take scuba diving lessons I love it so much. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about it. It would be cool if it had some type of sensor or detector that would beep if water was entering case just in case! I would highly recommend this case and say skip the cheaper case and risk of drowning camera.

                    Works like it should although can be a bit touchy fitting the camera into the case. Not all control buttons are lined up as well as they might be. Balance is much better than Canon's housing.

                      I drowned 2 G-9s using the Canon UW housing before I kicked down for the Ikelite. This is built like a tank, heavy but durable - works for me as I do a lot of shore diving in Kona. Ikelite has the best customer service, too.

                        Its a great case. Just I did not like one handel. While underwater it is much better to have double side handel.

                        Comments about Ikelite 6146.12 TTL Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot G12 & G11:

                        It's an Ikelite so you know the build quality is very, very good. All Ikelite housings are clear so you can see right inside. The G11/G12 housing includes a hotshoe to bulkhead cable that allows you to connect a true TTL strobe (or two).

                        The only downside is the lack of a good wide-angle solution. The WD-4 is available but it's poor mounting system makes it too difficult to use.

                          Bought this housing for use with my new Canon G12. [...] Housing is well built and has all the controls easly accessible. It is a bit heavy out of the water, but this is understandable considering the quality and functions. The final word,I'm very pleased.

                              Made 15 dives with the new housing and camera in Cozumel last week. I had to modify the control that moved with front wheel so the foam didn't slide down the shaft. After the modification the housing worked great. Less expensive that other options. Housing allows use of all camera controls.
