Lives up to the expectation

I was excited when I got this case. I wasn't planning to use it in serious scuba diving but just casual snorkeling. It lived to the very end of my expectations. I tested it each time I used it with tissue paper and observed no leaks. You just need to be careful while closing the seal.

For the cons, the finger hole for shutter button is useful but the finger holes for zoom/focusing are virtually useless. The front glass (which is actually a polymer) has to touch to the front of the lens to prevent vignetting bu then it pushed my lens back and changed the zoom. I used it with an 18-55mm zoom lens but couldn't go lower than 30mm since the front glass pushed the lens back. This was the biggest con I faced. Oh and you better take the camera strap off before you put it in the case. Also, make sure to put in a high capacity memory card and take as many shots as you can while you are underwater and pick the keepers later. All in all, for about [$], it's a great addition to your arsenal whether you are a nature photography enthusiast or want to shot models underwater.

It's Waterproof

Upper neck strap secure points not large enough to do the job. Have to make sure cxamera lens is pressed against front lens cover to make sure keyhole effect doesn't occur.

Great Value, Great Results-If Careful!

By

from New Orleans, LA  -  Pro Photographer

SUMMARY When you are about to submerge upwards of $4000 worth of camera gear, I think most would agree that reliability and build quality are the primary concern. This bag scores high marks in these two departments. While it loses a star for somewhat clumsy controls, a missing left index finger port, and an awkward lens port, the image quality is fantastic when operated carefully. All in all, this bag cannot be beat for the price. Keep in mind, this is not for use in rough waves, or jumping into the water. If you use it like an idiot, you'll probably end up with a wet camera. PROS Affordable Fairly durable-after two shoots, the plastic zipper enclosure has separated at the very top on one side, but six shoots in it is still functional. For added caution, I use liberal amounts of a gel sealant on the zipper every time i open the bag. Image quality is good-If you keep the end of the lens port tight against the lens, there is barely any degradation. Port easily accommodates the Nikon 16-35mm F4 on a D610, or the 105mm f2.8 Micro Nikkor, the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8, or many other lenses. These can be put into the bag fully assembled, so I don't have to open the front lens port and risk getting debris in the closure. CONS Lens port has to be held tight against front element or you will see the edges of the port in your images. This gets tiresome after a long shoot. I am experimenting with heavy-duty rubber bands to keep this pressed tight against the lens for me. No left index finger port-impossible to operate mode dials on a Nikon body-for instance, I was in CH on a recent shoot and wanted to change to CL to save some buffer speed. Had to remove camera from bag to do so. Needed accessories to use more easily: silica descent packs to keep it from fogging (crucial), weights to keep it from floating (I use two 3-pound lead shot bags with a D610 and the 16-35mm lens). Screen can be hard to see unless the bag is stuck against it. You will have to shoot in live view underwater, obviously, so you will get used to constantly pulling the bag away from and pressing it against the screen to get solid contact. I have no idea what improvement can be made here, it is just a minor annoyance.

Nice product. Better than I expected

Bought it to use my camera in the rain and take pictures of a tiger who likes to splash water and mud on me for his enjoyment. Looking forward to getting some wet and wild pics of my tiger friend.

Capsized on canoe trip. It saved our $500 camera. We were very pleased that we could still use the camera while in the bag. Thanks for a great product!

Great product for the money

By

from Boston, MA  -  Photography Student

I bought this camera to do several underwater fashion series I was working on as a Photography student. I wanted to experiment with underwater work but couldn't afford a $500 dollar professional grade casing. I first bought a different brand, AQUAPACK i believe and it was NOT water tight (thank God i tested that with paper towels and not my camera. I decided to buy this product and tested it multiple times for its effectiveness before my submerging my camera and it has been true to its description each time. While I found it a little bit awkward to use in that my particular lens (a 18-135 on my D80) was a little small for the lens pocket but overall it was very user friendly. I had great results with the product and would definitely recommend it to friends and colleagues!

Great bag for the price

By

from Richmond,VA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

That's true that once the camera is in the case it is very hard to change the settings but I'd suggest to do the following: -use the right lens -pay attention to the edges of your pictures -use flash -get close to your subject -consider shooting video

A new frontier

By

from Stanwood, Washington  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Tested it out in a bathtub first. Fits a Canon 5D Mark II. Works great for taking pictures and video. Fun to use, a bit scary at first! But it seals well. If dirt gets on the lens section, it might be difficult to use auto focus. You just have to keep it clean. Used it during a family fishing trip to video fish being reeled in.

Worked fair but not great

By

from Wichita Kansas  -  Photo Enthusiast

I purchased this product for a canoe trip to the boundary waters of northern Minnesota. The product did keep the camera dry but I had many issues. It was very had to do anything with the camera other and just push the shutter button. The case is really large and bulky too for my 50D. Also I had a lot of trouble with fog inside the case since the sun would come out. Desiccant would have helped but I didn't think about bringing it. My next outing was in Florida and I used it in the water some. You can't really take this under water since it floats too much. Also some cracks have developed at the ziplock edges so now I'm concerned it could leak. The results I got with it were mixed. Some photos looked OK. Many had the edge of the lens cover extension in the frame. Also the quality of the image was degraded by shooting through the case. I was very happy that I could take off the lens cap to clean it and to sometimes shoot without it on. Overall I was disappointed in the product. I wish I would have just purchased a very good waterproof point and shoot.
