Press release


Fantasea Line proudly announces the release of a new and stylish waterproof housing for the Canon PowerShot G16 camera.

The FG16 Housing, specially designed for the Canon G16, meets the same high and professional standards of function, style and durability as previously found in popular and successful Fantasea F series Housings (FG15, FP7100 and FP7000). It is ergonomically designed, fully functional and features easy-to-use, clearly labeled controls. This shock resistant housing protects your G16 camera from damaging elements including water, sand, dust, snow, ice and pollutants.

The FG16 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 FG16 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.

With performance and creative expression approaching that of an SLR camera, the new PowerShot G16 delivers amazing image and video quality. A new DIGIC 5 image processor delivers 45% faster auto focus, shorter shutter lag, increased continuous shooting speed and better performance in low light conditions. New built-in Wi-Fi allows to wirelessly transfer those most impressive files to social networking sites, including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
