With all that said, I have used the housing while kayaking, tested it for leaks, but have not yet used it underwater. I'll update this review after I do.
The photos I've taken with it are only slighly inferior to those taken without. I am very pleased.
Update: I took some underwater shots in the pool, they look great!
The light of the flash of the camera is very well distributed (even if it works as far as 1.5 meters/4 feet), and no artifacts come to the G9 lens even against sun light.
All the commands of the G9 are usable, even if sometime I had to study the 273 pages of the G9 manual for a "backdoor" solution.
For the best result, apply the old "Nikonos" techniques: manual exposure, 1/60, flash (when subject is less then 4 feet from you) and play with the aperture and ISO.
Most I used 100ASA/f5.6. Try also other combinations (light condition varies from place to place) until you will be satisfied then apply your best guess before to start the diving - underwater there are a lot of think to care, and usually there is no time for changing settings. Use the Underwater filter of the G9 also with the flash.
I am so satisfied that I did not use my Nikonos anymore.
Basically, I watched 7 cameras die (out of 12)... including another guy's Canon G9. I wanted to cry.
Thanks to this case, I never, ever had a worry. I took it underneathe waterfalls... it videotaped the rapids... it spent the night in a sandstorm. Perfect picture. No distortion.
If you care about your camera and are going near the water, BUY THIS CASE.
If you don't care enough to spend the extra $75 for this case (versus a generic product)... you don't deserve a G9!
Surprisingly, the case doesn't noticeably effect the image quality, as long as you use the included flash diffuser. Without it, the glare from the flash naturally goes everywhere, and looks horrible.
One thing Canon could have done better is the icons on the back for the various buttons. They are made from slight raised icons, but they are not colored in any way, making them VERY hard to read. They used yellow markings to identify the case at the top, I would have thought they could have colored the icons.
Canon doesn't sell silicone grease, or silica gel packets to toss in the case, but you really should. The silica gel packets will absorb any moisture inside the case that may occur due to temperature shifts and condensation. The silicone grease is a necessity for keeping the o-ring in good condition. Olympus sells both of these, and it's worth the $10.
