Unlike some cases, all controls are accessible, with the sole exception of the thumbwheel. To adjust values that require the thumbwheel, hold the shortcut button down and use the left and right buttons on the rocker to adjust up and down. A two hand workaround, but there is a way.
The case is better than previous WP-DC21 for the G9, some of the controls have been moved for better access for fat fingers in dive gloves. I have yet to accidentally power off the camera when trying to take a photo with this case.
Yes, the case has no warranty, expected in an underwater case where a small grain of sand or poor maintenance of the seals can cause a leak. If you can not afford to lose a camera, don't take it 30m underwater.
Here is my warning about this case -- IT HAS NO WARRANTY!!! NONE. I just talked (January 15th) to both a Canon service representative and a supervisor ("Marvin"), and was explicitly told that Canon offers no warranty on their underwater cases. Even though the case comes in a Canon box that has claims stated on it -- that this is a "Waterproof Case" and that it is good to "40m/130 feet" -- the case has no warranty. This is simply unacceptable and retailers like Amazon that sell this product an an "Underwater case" that is "Waterproof" should stop doing so until an explicit warranty is included with the product.
I was given an address to send this case to for "testing," but I was explicitly told that Canon was under NO LEGAL obligation to either fix or replace this case. Buyer beware and avoid purchasing all Canon underwater cases until Canon accepts some legal responsibility that products which they make and market can live up to the description that they print on the box.
1. I use a small cartridge of moisture absorbent in the case to absorb any condensation. Sealife makes a pack of 10 cartridges that sell for about $8-9 on Amazon.
2. I am meticulous about keeping the seal clean (using a Q-tip) and using a small amount of silicon grease on the seal prior to closing the case. After closing the case, I will test it in fresh water (like in a trash can to make sure that it has sealed correctly - if there are no drops of water after 30 minutes, I am reasonably confident that it has sealed).
3. I purchased extra O-rings for the seal from Canon. If I see any questionable spots, such as dents or nicks, I will use a new O-ring. O-rings are cheap compared to a new camera. Also, I store the case with the O-ring removed from the its slot so that it does not stretch or flatten out.
4. I try to avoid opening the case on the boat or beach and prefer to pack the camera in my hotel room - this helps to keep out sand, hair, etc. which can cause leaks.
Overall the housing is very nice and the camera also takes good pictures. It is particularly useful to shoot in RAW mode and use Adobe Lightroom for the color correction.

Used for the first time this last weekend. Took it on 4 different dives. No leaks and got some great shots.Published on February 18, 2014 by J. F.
It would be perfect if the camera never ever got caught on the rubber lining of the lens housing, which it does from time to time for some reason. Read morePublished on February 16, 2014 by Roland Garza
