The WP-DC53 Waterproof Case from Canon enables you to shoot underwater with their PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera. It features a depth rating of 130'. Mechanical controls afford access to virtually all camera functions, and the built-in, flat polycarbonate port with anti-reflective coating accommodates the lens.

The Mark II's built-in, pop-up flash is also usable, and an included diffusion plate softens its light to eliminate backscatter, glare, and hard shadows in your images. Additionally, the case comes configured with a cold shoe mount for accessories, such as an optional lighting arm or an external strobe in a separate housing, which can be connected via fiber-optic cable. You can also use the camera's flash to trigger a strobe as a wireless slave.

Built for durability, the WP-DC53 is constructed from a strong plastic polymer, which is clear to enable you to monitor the waterproof seal and the camera. A neck strap and wrist strap are included, as is a container of silicone grease for O-ring lubrication, which is necessary to maintain the housing's waterproof seal.

Depth Rating

Can be used at a maximum depth of 130'.

Controls

Mechanical controls provide access to essentially all camera functions. The only limitation is that you have partial, and not full, access to the dual control rings. The control dial is usable, though the housing has a different method of activating it: Just move the zoom lever while pressing the DISP button.

Construction Details

Made from a durable plastic polymer, which is clear to enable you to monitor the waterproof seal and the camera.

Buoyancy

Optional WW-DC1 case weights are available separately for ideal buoyancy.

Lens Port

Built-in, flat polycarbonate port with anti-reflective coating accommodates the camera's lens.

Flash Use

The Mark II's built-in, pop-up flash is usable, and an included diffusion plate softens its light to eliminate backscatter, glare, and hard shadows in your images. Additionally, the case comes configured with a cold shoe mount for accessories, such as an optional lighting arm or an external flash in a separate housing. An external strobe can be connected via fiber-optic cable, which is available separately. An attachment that positions the cable in front of the Mark II's flash is supplied. You can also use the camera's flash to trigger a strobe as a wireless slave.

Mounting

Equipped with a standard 1/4"-20 tripod mount.

question

Can a raynox 250 macro lens fit into the housing?
Asked by: Courtney D.
The G1X II with the raynox macro attached will not fit into the underwater housing. The housing lens area is designed specifically for the camera lens diameter and length and does not allow for any external attached items.
