| p.1 #6 · Underwater camera point and shoot advice/suggestions |
Since you have the G9, a used housing made by Canon for the G9 seems like a good idea. You have enough time so that you should be able to find one at a semi reasonable price. It looks like the WP-DC21 housing has sold reciently in the $120 to $180 range at the well know on line auction site.
If you have any reason to want a new point and shoot for other reasons, then a newer Canon that also offers an underwater housing might be worth a look. The new Canon S100 is a very nice camera with a fast lens, and Canon lists a housing for that. You then get a nice camera for years to come, but still are able to use it for the wet shooting you will have on your trip. The Canon underwater housings have been good values over the years, with a good custom fit, and fairly reasonable prices.
The Canon S100 makes RAW files that are compatable with Canon's DPP software, which was another reason I got one. I use several Canon DSLR models, and also use DPP for much of what I do, so the compatabily with the RAW is nice.
