I put this case through it's paces during a weeklong trip to Roatan, Honduras in Sept, 2011. Over the course of 6 days and 14 dives to depths averaging about 70 ft (and the deepest being 120 ft), this case performed admirably well with no leaks whatsoever. At the end of each day I would open the case and download my photos and video from that day, so the case was opened and closed quite a bit. It's very sturdy and ruggedly built and will protect your camera from being damaged. I accidently dropped it a couple of times on the dock and on the boat and it didn't even leave a scratch. The included diffuser snaps in place securely and works very well.
The Canon 300 HS camera fits like a glove in this case and the buttons line up perfectly. The camera somehow senses when it is put into the case and reverts to underwater mode, which is the only mode available. The zoom worked great, even when shooting video. Besides having a red button conveniently dedicated to video, there is a button that allows you to select macro, normal, or infinity shooting mode and a button to set the flash to on, off, or auto. There is also a button to review the photos/video you've shot.
Some of the reviews talk about the price of this case being on the high side, but the camera and case together will only run you about $400 and you'll be hard pressed to find a less expensive underwater setup that takes such superior photos and HD video. All week long I was getting compliments on how good my photo and video quality was, and several people were so impressed that they even wrote down the camera and case model numbers with the intent to buy them when they returned from their vacations.
Honestly in my opinion, with this combination of camera and case, you can't go wrong!
May, 2012 Update - Just returned from a week long trip to Cozumel and the case is still going strong, even after accidently dropping it (again) from a height of about 5 ft onto the concrete walk after getting off the dive boat. It's got a tiny scratch on one corner now but that's it. (That happened on the second day.) Took it to depths just over 100 ft and no leaks whatsoever. I read one negative review saying that the case leaked. After using mine on numerous dives for nearly a year, I can only assume that the person 1. Did not make sure the camera was aligned in the case properly, 2. Did not have the o-ring gasket seated properly, 3. Did not get 100% coverage of silicone lube on the gasket, or 4. Just got a bad/defective case from Amazon/Canon.
1) Flash is blocked halfway, so underwater pictures are shaded on the right side.
2) You can't use important controls, like the down arrow.
3. The housing fits so tightly there is no room for a desiccant pack (essential for humid air conditions so the window doesn't fog in cooler water). The only way I could avoid fogging on a tropical dive trip was to purge (squirt) dry air from a scuba tank into the housing as the door was closed. Dumb, really dumb. Obviously the case designers had no experience diving.
4) The housing has a spring-loaded "finger" such that when the door is closed, it forces the camera into "Underwater" automatic mode. (Which suppresses the blue tones.) There are several cases where you will want a different "mode"; like using the camera for topside snaps and want to keep the housing on: Rain, sand, swimming pool, kayaking. Your stuck with "Underwater", for EVERYTHING!
All that said, it's amazing Canon did such a terrible job with this particular product. I didn't realize these shortcomings until too late to return. Canon's other underwater housings are pretty good; I've had/used several over the years. Find something different for diving. Keith (long time diver/photographer).
