My only gripe with the case is because the S95 is more complicated than the standard point and shoot -- the knobs are a little difficult to figure out, especially underwater. You can use the large dial which is a little clunky on the left side of the case. You cannot use the little wheel option to navigate quickly through your menu choices (the S90 lacks this little wheel).
I've used the flash in the case and it works surprisingly well for macro shots. Obviously, not so hot for underwater landscapes. If you aren't a pro and just enjoy taking your camera with you for your dives, then this is your case. I was surprised at how much better my photos looked compared to my previous cameras/cases!
Cheaper than the Ikelite version? Yes. Are you getting what you pay for? Yes. Does it do what it promises to do? Absolutely.
P.S. just search for the shortcuts on Google - they're all there!!
The case makes it possible to use almost all of the standard controls on the camera. I did change the strap to a more comfortable wrist-strap, which made it easier to handle. Overall, I'd highly recommend this camera and case for underwater pictures, or for any time that conditions are bad for the camera. For example, dust storms, rain storms, whitewater rafting, etc.
Oh, and I went camping in the Sierra Nevada range, and spent a nice afternoon taking pictures of the trout in the stream. People at the camp were amazed at the pictures I got.
Per various advice, I did skip trying to use the camera's onboard flash. I shot at 400 ISO and 250 ISO. On a sunny day, 250 ISO is probably good. Be sure to set the white balance to blue on your S95. It's also a little tricky getting the autofocus to work right. It took some experimenting. That half-press of the button to trigger the autofocus before you press all the way is tricky with the housing. It can be done, but the feel is just different. Focusing can be difficult because everything is moving--you, the subject and the water. I did get some great turtle photos with this housing. I put a small dessicant pack in the housing which I bought at a local camera store before sealing it up, and that probably helped to avoid any fogging of the case. That and sealing the camera away from the beach and keeping it out of hot sun as much as possible before you get into the water. Be sure to do the mandatory soak in fresh water after each usage.
The case was very expensive, but worked as advertised, and the convenience of having your own case can't be beat. Rental options tend to be as much or more than buying.
