<font color='#3BB9FF'>Hi. You're looking for Canon WP-DC900 waterproof case, aren´t you?. It's new and it's a bit expensive. The cheapier price that I've found in Spain is 151 pounds. I've got DC800 for ixus v2 and it works perfectly (handle with care, of course). I bought it last summer and now it´s 35% cheapier. If you´re not in a hurry, wait a bit.
Cheers

When I was looking for a Digital cam and underwater housing I looked at the A80, the cheapest that I saw the housing for was £116 on Amazon uk. This was only a couple of weeks ago so it should still be the same price.

Strange...

Before the "Great Crash of 2004" I had posted the same advice is Hanmer. It has gone though - spooky. I think it was all a plot to strip me of the thousand posts I had amassed before the crash!!

The cheapest I found for this housing was also Amazon. The price changes fairly regularily though, by a few pounds so it seems as if the keep just under the market price.
