Default Any experience with Canon WP-DC700 ?

Does anyone have any direct experience with the WP-DC700 underwater housing for the Canon A60/A70 cameras? Are all camera functions availabe when in the housing?

Is there any other site that may provide some direct user feedback on this housing?

Hope you got an answer somewhere else by this time... But, yes all functions are available on the housing, including switching to view mode.

I've been on a few snorkeling trips and have been fairly satisfied with it. One problem is the LCD viewfinder is hard to see underwater sometimes. You have to learn to take pictures without it. Also with the slow shutter response on the A60 and A70 (I've used it with both models) you really have to follow those fast fish around, generally keep the camera on wide angle and hope you catch them! I have to say I get more throwaway shots than on land, but not terrible.

I would guess that the housings for the newer A85/95 are pretty much the same deal. It's a great way to get started with uw photography without breaking the bank.
