In Topic: What is the procedure for packing undwater camer cases for trips?

It might be helpful to know what camera/case/strobes you are packing and where you are leaving from.

I have a WP-DC 16 ( aka case for the canon powershot A720)

C&P from my post on a different thread:

I suggest going for the SD630 or SD750 with Canon housings. They forgo the viewfinder for a larger screen, which is really helpful UW. The SD750 sells new for $335 (Camera+Housing) on B&H. I still use my SD630 occasionally since it fits into my BC pocket and it does produce some really nice photos. You won't have all the bells and whistles of larger P&S or dSLR systems, but it is a great way to start UW photography. You can later pair it up with an Inon D-2000 (or Sea&Sea YS-27) strobe to get that extra light.



Does it take videos?

Hi Noobie,
Both Canon and Ikelite make a housing for the A720 that I know of. The Canon is rated to 131 ft for about $170 and the Ikelite to 200ft for about $350. Adorama, Amazon, B&H and Helix all sell them plus some others I'm sure.

The housings work very well if your careful and make sure the o-ring is clean and lubricated per the instructions.

Good Luck,
Steve

So it sounds like if i be gentle and i follow the instructions there should be a low chance of water getting in.
