Anyone used the G11 OEM housing past 40m/130feet?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Going to the Blue Hole tomorrow and I wanna know if any of you have used your WP-DC34 housings past the manufacter's rating of 40m.

The dive goes to 40m max apparently and then ascends from there.

I'm wondering if I should risk taking the housing down.

Pure guess, but I suspect it will stay dry, but you might have a little trouble with sticky controls...

Dear MitHere,

 

I was previously using Canon G11 with WP-DC34. I took mine down several times to app. 50m (Wreck Lina Croatia).

Everything stayed dry. The only problem which arises is, that when you come close to 40m the buttons are not working anymore.

Cheers

Joerg

Not the same camera but i have taken a canon housing for a570is to 70m. Camera stayed dry, but as above buttons stop working at about 45m.Shutter still worked though, so set up camera before hitting deeper depths.
