5.0 out of 5 stars Works like a charm for Canon PowerShot S100, September 18, 2012
This review is from: Dicapac WP-ONE Point & Shoot Digital Camera Waterproof Case (Electronics)
This worked perfectly for my Canon PowerShot S100. We first tested it underwater in the sink without the camera and it was fine. Taking it snorkeling, it worked beautifully. The pictures came out great, and it was fine after diving down about 15 feet. Camera was completely dry once we got back on land.

Did you get any vignetting at the edges of photos, like some of the customer images show? Considering getting this for our S100 and it appears that another one of their models (DicaPac WP310) supposedly works for the S100 as well, so i'm unsure which one is a better fit.

And just to confirm, when you say S100, you're referring to the 2011/2012 Canon PowerShot 12.1 MP S100 and not the 1999-ish Canon PowerShot S100 2MP Digital ELPH, right?

Yes, the link you posted is the exact camera I used, in fact I actually ordered it from that page :)

I had vignetting on some photos but others absolutely none. It's because the camera can recede away from the end of the tube (whatever you call it, where the lens goes when it extends!) if you're in choppy waters or moving the camera around a lot without control. The lens can also move side-to-side inside the case a little, so you can aim the lens to the side and catch the side of the tube in your photo.

For the S100 at least, my experience was that you have to try to keep it aimed at the center. It's not a 100% snug fit since it's pliable and more of a bag than a rigid hard case, and also it's supposed to be generic. I did look at the other one you posted there (pretty sure it was that one anyway, the WP310), and one reviewer said specifically that he had to return it because the S100 moved around too much, and that he had better luck with this one. Look in the reviews and see if you can find that post, I might have been looking at a different one.

For family vacation photos, overall it was really nice, especially for $30, and I would definitely recommend it. Just take a ton of photos, some will have vignetting, some not, then sort it out later. If I was doing professional work then I would go with a hard case, but they can be quite expensive.

thanks Alex, i ordered the WP-One. Can't really beat it for the price. We had an underwater housing for our previous canon but just can't justify buying a new underwater housing that's nearly as much as the camera, especially for the few times a year that we go snorkeling!

How did it turn out for you Canon Powershot S100?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 19, 2014 6:55:41 PM PDT
Turned out nicely. We used it in Hawaii as well since my original review and took it scuba diving (about 15 feet) and tr pictures came out well. Like I said in the comment above, it can move around a little so if you're in choppy waters snorkeling or something you may get some vignetting.
