WP-DC52 Housing Features

The new 40m depth rated WP-DC52 housing for the G16 has the same features as the rest of Canon’s recent offerings like the DC48 and DC51. Canon is actually the last major company to add an accessory shoe and a fibre optic cable sync port to their casings as Fuji, Olympus and Panasonic have had these things for years. The WP-DC52’s fibre optic cap is a clip-on unit that also works as a shade panel when an external strobe is in use. The housing still ships with the standard white diffuser plate in case you want to use the camera’s own flash unit. The WP-DC52 housing comes with a flash pop-up button in case you have forgotten to get your strobe ready before hitting the water everything is not lost. There is no push down lever but luckily the flash can be disabled from the menus.

As always there are no control wheels on the housing for the camera’s two jog wheels. However, the programmable S button works as a sort of a shift button, so you can still do all your rear wheel settings by keeping the S button pressed down and then hitting the left and right buttons. Unfortunately, the function/shift button has moved to a slightly more awkward position under the video recording button so you have to reach for it with your left hand or do some one handed dual-button acrobatics.  As the control for the front jog-wheel is also missing and if you want to use the camera in manual exposure modes you need to go to the camera menu first and change the wheel settings so that the front wheel of the G16 is ignored and all the exposure settings happen through the back wheel. Once in M mode you can then alternate between aperture and shutter speed and change both with the real wheel. For the rest of the G16 camera features the WP-DC52 offers a button.
