Excellent for the price!


from Houston, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this to use at Burning Man to keep all the dust out of my camera and lens. This is perfect for that use. I do not plan to use this underwater, but it's definitely a possibility. For what you get, its worth the cost, especially compared to the more professional solutions.


Dicapac WP-S5 waterproof bag


from Dallas, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

Just bought this one. It's the second. My first Dicapac was the larger size SLR bag, and it finally sprung a leak after four years of use. The bag can keep your camera dry, provided you make sure that the bag is dry when you put in the camera, and that you roll and seal the top properly. If there are a few drops of water inside and you are out in a warm climate, the camera ends up in a steam bath. (So be careful!) I find that the finger holes on the lens barrel to not be all that useful. Mostly this is because my lens does not have a power zoom switch, instead I have to rotate the barrel. Those finger holes do not provide enough dexterity for that. Also, be careful when shooting toward the sun. The previous bag would occasionally add a rainbow effect to the pictures.

Good things do come in small packages


from San Rafael Trinidad W.I  -  Photo Enthusiast

The first time I used the product was to take photos in the rain while hiking. However the real test was at an international surfing competition. I was extremely pleased with its functionality. The only downside the material is not anti fog.

Better than expected.


from Bellingham, WA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Given reviews for similar products, I thought this thing would be much harder to use and access camera controls. [...] despite being a cheap housing relative to others, if felt like it was actually of pretty good quality. As far as functionality of the camera, I was expecting to only be able to press the shutter release button. On the contrary, I can access pretty much everything except the zoom on my lens and the exposure control on my camera. That being said, those are two pretty important controls. However, I can access literally everything else from changing the shooting mode to WB, ISO, bracketing, focus area, etc. The reason I can't manipulate the exposure control is like on most DSLR's to change exposure you must hold down a button AND turn a dial. I can access either the button or the dial but not both at the same time. This would be an easy remedy if dicapac would have just put in another finger hole so they get -1 star. But overall I'm pretty happy with it and like I said, I was surprised at how much I could actually manipulate with this after reading so many negative reviews.

Questions about this item:

Son D  Does this one fit Nikon D200 with 17-55? Thank!
Jackie W  I do not know for sure, but it does fit a D7000 with an 18-200. There is plenty of room in the pouch for a bigger camera. Hope this helps. Mark
Jillian W  Does this fit a N60? Thanks!
JASON R  I was happy to answer the question as best I could. I did already ship back the first PAC I ordered since my camera did not fit. If you have not received it yet it is in route as instructed for return. I love the wp-s5 I look forward to receiving my return adjustment and will definitely recommend your store and products.
Raymond G  Would a Nikon D800 or D7000 fit in the bag?
MICHAEL R  My d80 fits perfectly and if I remember correctly a the D800/7000 is pretty similar in size... Even if its a cm or two bigger in each dimension it should fit fine!
