Canon A510 and WP-DC60 Waterproof Case
Unbelievable Underwater Housing AND Camera. This is everything you need to start shooting underwater digital photos up to ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY FEET DEEP (That’s the recreational limit!).

This camera and housing has been lovingly cared for – we just don’t get to use it as often as we’d like.

Here’s what you get:
Camera – Canon Powershot A510. Everything that came with the camera originally, with the exception of the two alkaline batteries (they’re worthless – not worth the shipping cost, you need rechargeable batteries for digital cameras).

The camera kit includes:
Canon Powershot a510, Wrist Strap WS-200, MultimediaCard MMC-16MB (it’s worthless too but it’s light), Digital Camera Solution CD-ROM (bunch of programs, one is very cool – photostich, allows you to make panoramic pictures), AV Cable AVC-DC300, Interface Cable IFC-400PCU, Users Guide, Original Box.

Underwater Housing – Canon WP-DC60. Everything that came with the housing originally.

The underwater housing kit includes:
Waterproof Case WP-DC60, Neckstrap, Wriststrap, LCD Montor hood, Diffusion Plate, Silicon Grease, Users Guide, Customer Support Leaflet.

In the interests of fair disclosure here are the known issues with this kit:
The original camera box has the upc code cut out from a printer promotion.
The underwater housing has some black crud on the end of the lenses port where the diffuser plate attaches – it in no way affects anything.
Both users guides are slightly curled up.

That’s it! I’d rate it a 9.5 out of 10! If this kit is not as advertised, you may return it for a full refund minus shipping and fees within 7 days.

Some great things about the Canon Powershot A510:
4x optical zoom – most cameras in this range only have a 3x.
Underwater “Scene”mode AND Manual white balance adjustment.
ISO 50 speed – great for sunny days- really crisp pictures
Video Mode!

Great deal and to make it sweeter – I'll throw in a Kingston 256 MB SD card (Again the 16MB card that came with the camera really is useless!)

Please note – I’ve got it listed on other forums also – I reserve the right to sell it “wherever”.

Thanks for looking
