Polaroid PLWPCS110 overview

  • 1Description

Capture the beauty and variety of sea life at depths up to 130' with your Canon PowerShot S110 Digital Camera, thanks to this compact Polaroid Underwater Housing. The housing provides access to all camera functions via mechanical controls, including push-buttons and knobs. It is constructed from durable polycarbonate, which is clear to enable you to monitor the O-ring seal. The enclosure also has a built-in, flat glass lens port. Additionally, it is configured with a 1/4"-20 tripod mount and a hole for attaching the included hand or neck strap. As the housing does not permit the camera's built-in flash to fire and has no strobe connector, an optional constant light is recommended in order to ensure sufficient illumination for clear photo and video capture.

    Polaroid PLWPCS110 reviews

    Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot S110 is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent alternative to a DSLR housing When my U/W point and shoot broke after barely more than a year and that company's customer service wasn't willing to work with me, I was left scrambling for a solution with only two weeks before a beach vacation. As an avid scuba diver, I wasn't really happy with the old camera's 45 foot depth limit or its inability to shoot RAW, but I wasn't ready to drop the big bucks on an underwater housing for my DSLRs. The happy medium was to get a Canon s110 and this housing, which together cost barely more than some of the better U/W P&S cameras on the market. The S110 is far superior to those cameras on land and shoots in RAW, and this housing lets you go much deeper. I have taken it to the beach, snorkeling, and recently took it 85 feet down in Cozumel. It's a little positively buoyant, but I haven't added any weights to compensate for that because it isn't that bad and I like that it will float if it gets dropped handing it up to the boat after a dive. At the beach, splashes on the lens evaporated, leaving a little fog on the inside of the lens port, but every time I've used it underwater I've squeezed a small silica packet in with the camera and had no problems with fog. The silica probably isn't even necessary. Despite what the description says, mine came with a diffuser that slips around the lens and helps to make the pop up flash more effective. I used it quite extensively and effectively underwater. It also has two round ports right in front of the flash for connecting fiber optic leads to external flashes (some day, when I have too much money...), a cold shoe for mounting an external flash or other accessory, and a tripod mount that would best be used for adding weights to balance the buoyancy. Included in the box was the flash diffuser, an extra rubber seal, some silicone oil for regreasing the seal (I regrease before each vacation), and a neckstrap and wrist strap, both of dubious quality. The neckstrap actually broke while I was kayaking, the first and only time I used it.Underwater, you have access to almost every control on the camera, with the exception of the rear dial, which makes M mode impossible. You can rotate the front ring, however, and I just use the camera in Av mode.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sloppy fit, Zoom will not work, Fogging The S110 camera was a somewhat sloppy fit within the case itself. The mounting area was slightly wider and taller than the camera itself. Closing the case kind of locks it into position. Unfortunately when closed the zoom would not work. Looking closer, the zoom control does not quite interface correctly on the actual zoom controls of the camera. Because of the slightly sloppy fit you can shift the camera slightly so that the zoom will somewhat work, but now other controls do not line up correctly. Fogging - Never had this type of fogging problem before. Not sure what to attribute it to. I have worked with several other underwater camera cases and have never had a problem like this. Even used silica packet within the case to try to limit the problem. It helped but still was a problem. This might be because the camera itself seems to run hotter than others. No problems using the Meikon case (I think the same maker of this case despite the Polaroid label) with a Sony RX100ii. No problems with GoPro or Cannon case for S95.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too bad to be true Due to a poor design or finishing the zoom only zooms out (which is not very useful when you cant zoom in...) the rest of the functions work perfectly but Id appreciate having the possibility of zooming when needed...
