Fantasea has announced the release of their FG15 housing for the Canon G15 compact camera. This is designed to have better ergonomics and features than that of the Canon WP-DC48 housing and to this end has fiber optic ports, dedicated control for video functions and compatibility with a range of accessories.
Fantasea FG15 Housing for Canon PowerShot G15.
Fantasea Line proudly announces the release of a new and stylish waterproof housing for the Canon PowerShot G15 camera.
The FG15 Housing, specially designed for the Canon G15, meets the same high and professional standards of function, style and durability as previously found in popular and successful Fantasea F series Housings (FP7000 and FP7100). It is ergonomically designed, fully functional and features easy-to-use, clearly labeled controls. This shock resistant housing protects your G15 camera from damaging elements including water, sand, dust, snow, ice and pollutants.
The FG15 has been successfully depth tested to 80 meters (240 ft.) and is certified to a maximum depth of 60 meters (200 ft.), which is well beyond the 40 meter (130 ft.) dive limit of most compact housings.
The FG15 Housing is supported by a complete accessory line, including wide angle and macro lenses. Additional accessories include a variety of color correction filters and lighting sets, which enable photographers to further enhance the quality of their images and videos.
FG15 Housing Feature Highlights:
* Depth rated to 60m/200 feet.
* Ergonomic design.
* Full access to all camera controls & functions with clearly marked controls.
* Shock resistant.
* Double O-ring seal.
* Special mount for lighting accessories.
* Removable double fiber optic cable connection.
* Removable flash diffuser.
* Easy and secure installation of camera.
* Removable anti-glare hood for the LCD screen.

The recently released Canon PowerShot G15 reaches new heights in speed, agility and creative possibilities. The G15 introduces full HD (1080p) video recording capabilities, super bright f/1.8 lens and high speed AF, which all result with ultra-fast performance and phenomenal image quality.
Photographers will find that the Canon G15, bundled together with the FG15 Housing, provides an affordable, yet professional water sports photography experience. This system is capable of producing stunning results which can certainly compete with far more expensive DSLR systems currently in the market.
FG15 Housing suggested retail price is $575 / €550.
