    I'm finding that the housing WP-DC34 for the Canon G12 tends to half-press the shutter button around 15m. (The focus assist magnifier pops up.) This pretty much locks out all setting changes, though I did find I was able to change the ISO by powering down and up again, otherwise the ISO dial is ignored. I'm guessing the spring for the shutter button is too weak against the pressure.

    Has anyone encountered this problem with the WP-DC34?

    Is there a fix?

    Does the Meikon housing perform better?

    Possible weak spring.
