Comments about DiCAPac Dicapac WP-S5 Waterproof Case for Small SLR Digital Cameras:

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.
