Expensive but you'll get what you pay for,

This review is from: Canon Waterproof Case WP-DC15 for Digital IXUS 950 IS (Accessory)
Every time I use this I can't help buy worry it's going to leak but it never has. I've used it as a splash case for kayaking trips and as a full waterproof case for surfing and snorkeling. The pictures and video are 100%. Some of the tropical fish photos I got in Hawaii were amazing, although the bright sun and clear water were contributing factors!
You have full access to every function the camera provides and the buttons are easy enough to use under water. I've never had the opportunity to try the flash so can't comment on that. I also haven't used any of the generic pouches or cases so can't compare with those. On long kayaking trips I've found that the temperature/pressure changes throughout the day can result in some condensation inside the case which will spoil some photos but that's not a fault of the product. That's just the nature of the environment.
I'm going to hazard a guess and say the high price is due to the number of these that are sold. If they could produce them in higher volume then the price would drop but you have to accept that you're buying a luxury/niche product so you're going to have to pay for it. If you do decide to splash out for it (har har har!) then you won't be disappointed. Just read the instructions, keep the rubber seal lubricated and enjoy your Canon camera (I wouldn't buy anything else) in environments few other people can take theirs.
