    Canon WP-DC38 reviews

    WP-DC38 Case for Canon PowerShot S95 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great case ... The case performed really well. No problem with scratches likes others mentioned but I took extra caution with it. I recommend a large chamois cloth to clean and wrap it in. My only major problem with the case is the inability to use the wheel on the back of the camera. I shoot in av mode and would love to be able to change aperture like I normally would when the camera is out of the housing. Fortunately you can still use the function of the ring scroll on the front of the camera. So I can switch btw iso and f stops with the ring dial. Just a few extra stes I wish I didnt have to do. On conclusion the camera and case perform well. I had a g9 with the underwater housing prior to the s95. The g9 in the underwater housing was worthless to me because you couldn't change aperture or shutter. Only iso. Get the underwater housing with the S95 and you will be pleased. Hope this helps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great in Maui I bought this for my trip to Maui and future beach and water sport outings. Worked great underwater for my snorkeling needs. Photos turned out crisp and clear. I shot in RAW for further adjustments. Another reason i bought this is so I did not have to worry about the camera while on the beach or in the pool. Took a lot of out of water shots on the beach and pool, and they turned out just as great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great case, no problems Got this case for my S95 just before heading off for a Caribbean vacation, to use while snorkeling with the family. It worked great, no problems with leaks, was simple to use, and gave full control of all the camera features, fit the camera perfectly. This is my first underwater case, but learning to use it and getting the camera safely in the case was no hassle at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Case Have used it twice for snokling and diving to about 12 feet. Used it on boating trips twice and takes surprisingly nice photos. The only place that desiccant seems to fit is where there is room for the flash to come up. Luckily I put the camera in the case in an Air Conditioned room so low humidity as I was in the tropics. No condensation problems without the desiccant.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great housing for the price I have purchased several of the Canon housing for various cameras. They are terrific! I am a serious underwater photog and love these for convenience and price over my SLR big expensive rig. Especially good for ambient lighting and quasi macro. Some of these like the ones for the G-10, 11, 12 have a small issue with the lens snout blocking the internal strobe and creating a shadow on macro shots. Easily remedied by backing off a bit and using zoom or adding an external strobe. If you are not sure you are ready to drop $700 on a pro housing this is a good place to start.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for For the price, it is a decent housing. The polycarbonate scratches a little too easily for my liking but you don't even notice it once in the water. I do find the shutter button a little hard to use. The way the button on the housing is designed makes it somewhat sensitive so it is sometimes hard to half press the shutter button to focus. Also, the flash diffuser panel attaches a little too loosely. Still, it is decent quality when you consider that the other 3rd party offerings range in price from a little more expensive (Ikelite) to 3 or 4 times the price (Fix/Recsea).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great housing for great camera! I only have good things to say about this housing so far - I've been snorkelling with it a few times since it arrived last week, and am extremely happy. the s95 takes the best photos i've seen from a point and shoot, so the housing means that I can get great photos underwater as well...much better than the lumix I've been borrowing. the housing is also really easy to get around with, and easy to operate.very glad i finally made the investment!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Housing for S95 It is not every day that I get a chance to dive. I purchased the housing a few months back because I had owned a Canon housing before and was quite pleased. I have just returned from 5 days of diving which was the first time I had a chance to use the new housing. It work flawlessly. Most importantly it kept the water out. It did not fog so I did not have any issues with photo clearity. Although I am not one to review each photo as I take it I do use a range of the camera features and the knobs on the housing are well placed and function very well.
