Comments about DiCAPac DiCAPac WPS10 Waterproof Case for SLR & DSLR's:

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.

Comments about DiCAPac DiCAPac WPS10 Waterproof Case for SLR & DSLR's:

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.

Comments about DiCAPac DiCAPac WPS10 Waterproof Case for SLR & DSLR's:

I had never tried underwater photography and was not excited about shelling out $500+ to just rent the housing. So i went with this waterproof case.

It was absolutely watertight and easy to understand. Once in the bag, its a bit bulky, but not hard to use. Takes two hands for sure! I was happy with the images I got from it!
