SD500 Comments

Recommended Posts

Now that the SD500 and WP-DC70 are available, does anyone have any comments on using this underwater? I am not looking for magazine quality, just simple no fuss pictures. I tried the SD500 in the store and it's speed is much better than the A95 and S500.

 

Not sure if any of the Wide Angle lenses would work with it yet either...

 

The alternative for me would be the Sony DSC-W7, but it seems as if Canons have more choices when it comes to underwater accessories.

It looks like a very nice camera. Check Inon's website to see if they have an AD adapter. My guess is that if they don't, they will. All the Canon housings get something.

 

One question I would look into is if the flash can be set on manual levels. On the Canon A Series you can set the flash to fire only once, and at 3 levels. The battery will last a lot longer if you can set the output to the lowest level.
