A brilliant camera! I'm only an amateur so i don't know too much about brilliant cameras, but to me, this camera is everything I need.

The Ikelite Underwater Camera Housing for Canon Ixus 230 (6243.31) is an injection-molded ... more
clear polycarbonate case, known for its strength and corrosion-free properties. It permits you to shoot underwater with your Canon PowerShot ELPH 310 HS/ IXUS 230 HS digital camera. The housing features a depth rating of 200' (60m). All camera controls except the Mode switch are fully functional through the housing, via its mechanical controls. An easy-open latch and drop-in camera loading make set-up a breeze. Two 12-24 threaded mounts on the bottom of the housing allow for the secure, rotation-free attachment of optional trays and lighting accessories. The housing comes with a 1cc tube of silicone lubricant, a flash diffuser, a flash deflector, a vinyl port cover and a break-away lanyard. The included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective from 1.0-3.0' (0.3-0.9m) away from your subject in clear conditions. To achieve the best results, an external underwater strobe is recommended. This will bring out the natural Colour of your subject and reduce the illumination of particles suspended in the water, known as backscatter. An optional Ikelite AutoFlash AF35 can provide additional light with easy automatic exposure. You may also use an optional DS Substrobe with EV Manual Controller for more power and wider angle of coverage (strobes not included). See All recommended strobe systems. Also great for helping to restore natural Colour underwater are Colour correction filters. Effective in relatively shallow, sunny conditions, they replace some of the reds, oranges and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost underwater. The optional 6441.41 and 6441.81 filters are available for tropical blue water and green water, respectively (not included). For best results, use filters in combination with a manual white balance. The housing has slightly positive buoyancy in fresh water.
The quality of the slow motion movie setting isn't great
