Reviewer: Karl von Valtier, - View all my reviews
i had read other reports of this housing leaking and damaging cameras, but i didnt have that experience. had it down to 90 feet, and it didnt leak so much as a . the feel of the external controls was great, i didnt have any trouble at all manipulating the camera underwater. the pictures turned out great. had some pictures that turned out so good im looking forward to getting a little more serious and upgrading my equipment. this will include an external strobe.
still undecided about how necessary the diffusion plate is - i didnt take any shots using the macro lense, but with the primary diffusion plate built into the housing (in addition to the removable plate), i have to believe that only the most close up and intimate pictures - maybe 6 inches or less - would require that plate. so for my purposes, the secondary plate was left hanging by the cord for most of the time, and just got in the way.

Rating: Canon U/W Housing for Powershot A70
Reviewer: David C. Weeks,
at first i was apprehensive about bringing my camera u/w, as ive heard many horror stories of leakage and the like. i have to say that any fears i had were quickly quelled when i completed my dive, opened the housing, and viewed the pictures i had taken.
excellent quality pics (as one would expect with a canon), the freedom and ability to take video u/w was a plus, and not a single of water penetrated the housing itself.
for this amount of protection of your camera, the ability to snap pics at will (and them if desired), take video, manipulate what kind of pics you will take u/w (e.g. macro, black and white, etc.), and still not have to be concerned that you will damage your camera make this a purchase you wont regret.
this housing is easy to use both topside and u/w, and is fairly inexpensive considering all other suach as options of buying a new camera exclusively for u/w use, or continuouisly purchasing disposable cameras.
an excellent buy...i would recommend it to all!!!
