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.
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.
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.
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.
