About Canon WP-DC48

The Canon WP-DC48 Waterproof Case for PowerShot G15 Digital Camera is a durable, clear underwater housing for your compact camera. It has a depth rating of 130' (39.6 m). Simply drop the camera in and close the housing via the snap closure. The WP-DC48 is configured with mechanical controls enabling access to all camera functions.

The housing is constructed of clear polycarbonate and has an integrated flat glass port with an anti-reflection coating on both sides. Use two optional case weights for ideal buoyancy underwater. It comes configured with a cold shoe for mounting accessories. The camera's built-in flash is usable within the WP-DC48, which comes with a flash diffuser for softening the light of the flash, thus preventing harsh light from causing glare and hard shadows.

Compact, easy to use housing


from Central Florida  -  Pro Photographer

I use this housing as a backup to my big SLR aluminum housing- I now use this for my video underwater, and it does a decent job of doing macro and stills, with an external strobe. It can do decent macro with the in camera flash and diffusser, for the casual photographer. Downside is Canon does not make a red filter if you want to video without a light- some after market products are cumbersome to use. Also, there is no way to put on a wide angle lens if we wanted. Does have a cold shoe to add video light or strobe, and fiber optic add on accessory to use off camera strobe with slave feature.


Worth the investment


from Phoenix, AZ

Perfect for a get away to the beach. Not only for underwater shooting, but protection from sand. I was hesitant to invest in this for a rarely required use, but am glad I did since I often shoot in windy, dusty environments. Quality of case, ease of use, access to camera functions, and excellent image quality makes it an investment worthwhile.
