"It leaks - NOT an underwater camera"1.0 starson by Stevenage69
Pros: Good photos on land/dry
Cons: It LEAKS! Followed by failure - personal experience from 3 cameras.
Summary: If you're looking for an underwater camera - DON'T BUY THIS ONE!!
Takes great photos on land and underwater (and video), but leaks consistently (snorkeling in 3m of water). Canon service was ordinary. A good friend of mine had same problem - it leaked and could no longer be used for underwater activities. Pretty disappointing for a $550 camera. I think the only way to go is to buy a 'waterproof' camera and a housing to go with it.
I won't buy canon again due to this issue.
