This is an inexpensive, simple alternative to buying a waterproof digital camera. I used this with a Canon SD790, and it worked well for vacation pictures (snorkeling in Hawaii). The design appears to work with any Canon camera in this size range, and even worked with a cheap Polaroid digital point and shoot camera. I was able to get good images with this cover on my camera that are somewhat better than you could expect from a disposable 35mm underwater camera. There was zero leakage, and the camera did well with video and still images. You can turn the camera on and off and operate the shutter with the case on. You can also access the buttons on the back, but it can be a bit of a challenge. Some have mentioned that you cannot switch between video and images while the case is on. Yes, this is true, but seriously, what do you expect for $20? You also cannot expect documentary-type footage with this. If you want cable-tv-like images, plan on spending thousands of dollars for your equipment (a point-and-shoot will not do). If you go snorkeling on vacation and just want some nice images and video while keeping your camera dry and safe (it is more rugged than the pouch type covers), this is a great solution.
