If/when you decide you want to upgrade your system, the first thing I'd do is buy a good external strobe, since that (unlike a more expensive G9 housing) will be transferrable to your next uw camera, and thus will retain its value far more than spending extra money on a more expensive G9 housing.

Also, as someone else mentioned, find and order an OEM housing sooner rather than later, since it's no longer being made.

Good luck! The G9 is a great little camera!

HI! I just managed to get my hands on a G9 and Canon housing. can I attach a flash to the canon housing? How?! (yes, I too am brand new to this!) I will be going to Honduras in 4 weeks and would really like to add a strobe to my camera. Any suggestions?! who? where?
Thanks so much!

I was just successful in tracking down a Canon G9 camera and H20 housing. I have a trip to Honduras in less than 4 weeks and don't feel safe waiting for the G10 and housing!
Anyway, I have be told that I can attach a strobe to the canon housing. I think it has to go on a tray or something first?!? do any of you have any info or suggestions about adding a strobe?
I have been shooting with a canon powershot for a couple of years, and although not ready for the SLR plunge yet, wanted to impove my pics with a strobe....
Thanks much!
