Silica gel??

12 July 2005 - 12:02 PM

One last question,..I hope!
Is there a need for me to use silica gel packages for my WP-DC70 housing??
(for the Canon SD500) If I'm not removing the camera until I'm back in my hotel room, is there a need for this??
Where would I buy this stuff anyway,..I've seen it come in shoe boxes and so on, but not sure if it's the same stuff.


WP-DC70 housing (for Canon SD500)

11 July 2005 - 12:41 PM

I've recently purchased the WP-DC70 underwater housing for my Canon SD500.
I'm leaving in about a week for Mexico (I plan to use it mostly for snorkeling, I'm not a diver) so this will be my first time using the housing. I'm a bit nervous because I don't really know what to expect. I know there is quite a bit of maintenance needed to ensure that the case doesn't get damaged or leak. ( greesing o-ring, soaking etc)

Since I will be staying at a resort, I'll be in and out of the water all day, so not sure what to do with the housing between snorkeling. (rinse it off, and soak it at the end of the day??)

I was wondering, could anyone offer up some helpful tips, about this specific model, or any other housing?? Any shooting tips? Anything I should know??
