I bought this housing case for my SD450 last month for my trip to Aruba last week. The first few times I used it, it was great. I snorkeled at the Antilles shipwreck and got great pictures of fish, coral, etc. After coming in contact with salt water, I washed it so it the metal parts wouldnt rust and let everything dry for the next day's adventure. Well, when we went to the pool, the case leaked and soaked my camera. It turns out the o-ring that creates the seal had some how enlarged (as if it was stretched out) so when I closed the case, a pinch of the rubber was out of the case and thus not having a water tight seal. It was quite the inconvenience during my vacation, but after contacting Canon, they're going to repair the camera and look into the case. Just be careful and check that everything is REALLY sealed before going into the water.

EDIT: Canon sent me a refurb camera and a new case since the camera was beyond repair. I have since used the case while snorkeling at the Caymen Islands, kayaking in San Diego and have brought it to the famous Schlitterbahn waterpark a few times. It really comes in handy when you can take your own pictures and not have to pay $20 for a picture someone else took. I'm vacationing to Alaska this year and will definitely be bringing the camera and case along when I go kayaking!

This case worked perfectly on a recent snorkeling vacation. I had read reviews saying the O-ring/gasket had pinched when case closed not providing a good seal and instantly ruining a camera. This occurs most commonly after you have removed the O-ring to lubricate it with the silicone grease. The case is clear and you can easily see if pinching is happening if you look for it. Indeed the O-ring did pinch in one spot as I closed the case on the second day of use. I readjusted the O-ring slightly and closed the case again without any pinching of the O-ring. I suspect the camera would have been ruined on the second day if I had not seen reviews stressing the need to check the O-ring for proper seal as you close the case each time. Here is a link to a picture taken with the SD450 and this case.

I bought this to protect my camera from dust storms in the Blackrock desert. I is perfect for this. It also protected my camera from occasional water spray and sweat. Many people told me their digital cameras were ruined from dust getting in the zoom mechanism of the lens. The buttons are all accessible and easy to use. It's very easy to take in and out. The only problem is you can't record sound when taking video, but what would you expect if the case is water submersible.

Case worked perfectly for the first few days on shallow dives. Seal wore out after 4 uses. Kinda useless then isn't it? Also, cannot find replacement seal.

One of the best purchases i've made.If we go somewhere and bring the camera we automatically bring this case.With this case we never miss an opportunity to get pictures.If you want,you can leave the camera in it because it does not affect the clarity one bit and the flash works fine without the defuser.The camera floats when in the case so no worries if dropped in the water because it won't sink pass the 9 foot limit it has.Be sure to buy desicant,EBAY is a good place for deals.Let camera and case climitize before to room tempeture before removing.This really pertains to high humidity areas.But as stated before,pictures come out just as nice in the case as out and all funtions are easy to use so you can just leave it in when on vacation.This case made our Mazatlan vacation,swimming,fishing and rain from hurican Dean.If and when I buy another camera,a waterproof case will be bought at the same time.

I ordered this a week ago using Super Saver Shipping, and it got here in only 7 days. I read the instruction manual because I was very nervous about submersing my $300 camera, but when i followed the instructions carefully I had NO problems. As long as you read the instruction manual and double check the O-ring (thanks for all the warnings) my camera came out without a drop of water, and the pictures taken with it are gorgeous. It is well worth the $123 to protect my camera from any damage and I plan to take it with me to the lake nearby, the pool and on my beach trip because it works so well. One thing that takes a little while to get used to is the zoom buttons are reversed by necessity. All in all, perfectly worth it. Highly suggest it!

I found this case to be easy to use around the pool and in wet and sany environments. With a maximum depth of 10 feet (3 Meters) the case is able to more withstand depths deeper than that of most pools. The camera can be easily installed and removed with little effort. And the case allows you access to all of the buttons on the camera (with the exception of the print button, which you won't need while using the camera anyway).

If your interest are in scooba or other type of diving that will bring you deeper than 10 feet then this will not be the case or camera that you would want to use. But for general use at the pool side or the beach this purchase is well worth it.

The product worked well until we forgot to dutifully check the seal one time. Oops. There must've been a hair or piece of dust that compromised the seal. Our camera met its match in the salt water. Luckily, it was the second to last day of our three week vacation, and we were able to salvage the memory card. My advice to folks who buy this product is to ALWAYS check & double-check the seal. I would also recommend dunking it in freshwater before taking it into saltwater. If there is a small freshwater leak, you can usually dry it without the devastating corrosive effects of a full-on saltwater leak.
