Hi everyone. I have a canon powershot sd300 and want to take it with me when I go scuba diving. The only housing I can find is made by Canon and is only good for up to 9.8'. Every other Canon housing is good for 130feet though, so I dont get why this housing is so much less.

Does anyone know if this is a mistake maybe? Or if its not, is there any other housing I can use that would be good for up to 80-100 feet underwater?

Thanks,

Eric

Canon seems to make All Weather Housings and Water Proof Housings. As you've noticed the All Weather AW housings are only good to 3 metres. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a water proof housing for your camera. I also checked the Ikelite and Fanatsea websites but neither of these make a housing for your camera.

They do make a underwater housing for the SD300. WP-DC30 is the number listed in the B&H catalog. $169.95

I think you'll find that housing is for the A75 and A85 not the SD300.

I believe you are correct, the listing in their catalog does look a little strange. I am in the same boat with my SD400, only seems to be the all weather housing.

I also checked on ewa-marine and ikelite websites and neither of these companys have an underwater housing for the SD300 or SD400. We seem to be out of luck.
