* The Waterproof Case Weight WW-DC1 is used in Canon Waterproof Cases to prevent them from floating while taking pictures underwater. Four weights, plastic pins and weight securing screws are included in the WW-DC1 package. To use this weight, put two pins into the appropriate number of weights, and fasten it to the waterproof case with the securing screw. When other accessories are attached to the waterproof case, the number of weights may vary.
† When used in fresh water.
