Great protection and control for Canon G-16
on January 30, 2014
Take Your Canon G16 without fear to places where you would ordinarily risk serious damage to your somewhat expensive camera. It's not just for use under water but would be great at that also. This housing gives you complete control of all the buttons on the back and top of your G16 unlike the limited control of Canon's own housing. You can even manipulate all menu settings with ease. I used this housing fishing 15 miles out in the Gulf with Captain Marvel out of Naples, FL. Also on several beaches in the Naples area and on a canoe trip through the mangrove estuary at Barefoot Beach Park in Bonita Springs. The photos are beautiful with no distortion or color shift from the housing and I could always select exactly the settings I wanted and even review and delete unwanted photos with ease all while paddling a canoe. With the housing on, the camera puts a fair amount of strain on your neck (you can use the strap that comes with the G16). So I strongly recommend you purchase a Leupold Quick Release Binocular Harness 55895 currently for only $16.50 listed on Amazon.com. I have one for my binoculars and one for this housing. The shoulder harness distributes the weight in such a way that heavy devices feel feather light and it also keeps them centered on your chest so they don't swing around to bang on you and everything around you. Just lift and shoot.
