Does the trick

Bought these to replace a set I lost on a dive. I would recommend some Locktite on the screw to ensure it doesn't come loose. I've heard complaints from some that the weights are stainless but the screw is not. Never had a problem with much rust. Either way, a thorough rinsing helps keep that in check. The weights used to be plated and shiny and now are matte finish. I actually looked into fab'ing something myself and it might have saved me $, but in the end these are worth it, unless you have the time and the means to machine and drill a block of stainless. The nice part about these is the ability to adjust the weight for salt or fresh water diving. Nearly neutral (slightly heavy) buoyancy with my G16 in salt water with all 4 plates. Kind of expensive ultimately, but then with scuba, you get used to it. :-)

Not necessary for Canon S100

All good - except not necessary for Canon S100's waterproof case (WP-DC43) which is already perfectly balanced with a very slight positive boyancy.

4 weights recommended for G10 = only 1/2 lb, so a convenience not a necessity. Neutral bouyancy w/ weights; w/o weights Canon G10 UW housing is like balloon attached to your wrist via strap. Although I tightened screw, bumping rectangular weights had enough leverage to loosen and those weights are now on sea floor in Belize. Bought another set plus stainless lock washers. Last month, another diver with Canon G10 housing + weights had added coiled cord and carabineer clip which added just enough weight so that camera sank as it unclipped when she returned to boat. Luckily, I was below and caught sinking camera. So, if you add anything, check bouyancy and adjust number of weight pieces.

You are going to need these weights when using the Canon waterproof cases under water. Got these for a WP-DC28 case for use with the Canon Powershot G10 camera. Why not make your underwater experience as carefree as possible? Very easy to install on the case.

Finally neutrally buoyant!

Excellent way to get case to be neutral. Helps when skin diving and taking pictures.

Exactly as described

Easy to find the appropriate weight set for my underwater housing. ... Packaging and instructions good. Can't wait to try it out on the next dive.

A must have

Will this work for non Canon housings? Is the screw size the same for the majority of underwater housings?
Asked by: Eduardo
Yes, the Canon WW-DC1 Waterproof Case Weight for Canon Waterproof Cases can be used with housings from other brands. This uses a 1/4-20" connection which is pretty standard.
