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.

Have owned this camera case for a few months now. Have taken it to 100ft or so. No leaks, seals are in good condition and the package comes with a spare seal and additional grease.

It appears very similar to the OEM waterproof case, but it adds a few extra things (fiber optic flash cover, side cover lock, extra seal, flash lock, and hand strap).

The electronic moisture sensor is gimmicky (if it's going off, the camera is ruined anyway).

Other than a casting line that looks like a crack, the unit works well and I'm satisfied with it so far.

I will update this review as I continue to use it and put it through it's paces.

Next up: Using the case with an external wet fisheye lens and possibly an external strobe/fill light.

Stay tuned!

Bought this housing (and separately the Canon G16) to replace my old G10 that had broken. I previously had the Canon housing for the G10. I decided to go ahead and spend the extra money on the Fantasea housing after reading a number of reviews about the Canon housing for the G16 that indicated people were having camera floods (I also had a friend who had a catastrophic flood with the Canon housing and lost her G16). Just spent 5 days diving with this housing and it performed perfectly. No leaks and all buttons accessible and easy to use. I would definitely recommend it based on my experience.

Very good, used up to 110 ft thus far, no leaks. All controls seem to work well. A bit difficult to open and close at times but otherwise perfect. I have not yet attached a strobe so cannot comment on that. I did attach an old case weight to help keep it down which the TSA actually considered confiscating for some odd reason.

recently took it to cozumel for a week. daily inspections after 5-two tank dives to 60 feet showed a dry camera, no internal moisture or fogging. everyone is impressed with great pictures.

Very good value for money. Easy to use buttons even in max depth. The only negative part, not easy to take of o-rings and clean them...

Well put together housing, hasn't flooded yet and there has been no problems with it. Moisture sensor works well and the strobe connection is very good.

Best Dive house on the market. the only neg is its floaty but add weights and is can be a pro set up with a added flash.
