    Hello-

    When I scuba my Canon camera is enclosed in a WP-DC5 waterproof case.

    Sometime the button for the shutter sticks in a half way down position.

    I always clean the case in fresh water and I have also tried injecting
    silicone grease into the lubricating slot of that button but it still
    sticks sometimes.

    Anyone else have this problem?
    Solutions?

    Thanks

  2. When you immerse the housing in fresh water, push all the buttons on
    the housing in and out several times to flush the outer parts of the
    seals. If the buttons are sticking, it's probably because there's salt
    in there.
