<font color='#8D38C9'>Hi,

Does anybody know the depth rating for the Canon Ixus 400 housing (WP-DC800). I've looked on a number of websites and some give it as 30m others 40m!

Anybody have one and know what the depth rating is??

I don't think you would have been capable of getting your kit out of your bag that night - let alone put it on!!

I have an old Ixus 300, I thought I might sacrifice to the deep blue sea

Did you put the silicon gel around the seal? I didn't and had some slight seepage, but since I've been using the gel it's been fine...

In a pinch " Chapstick" or " Vasoline ", will work just as well.
anything with a lubricant base that doesnt perish rubber etc, will work wonders for leaks
Also works for slightly leaking tank o'rings

I suppose it depends on what the o'rings are made of, I rekit air valves in trucks all the time
if i dont have proper rubber grease handy I use vasoline and ive never had a come back yet of it
