Summary: I used my DiCAPac WP610 to encase my Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS3 camera, during a recent trip to the British Virgin Islands. Before I used it, I hand-cut a kitchen sponge, which I used to help secure the camera inside the bag, in order to assist in the alignment of the camera's lens with the lens of the DiCAPac case. My effort was only partly successful, as the alignment shifted a bit during several snorkeling sessions, resulting in a scalloped edge on some pictures.
Summary: We considered getting a much more expensive hard case for our camera. However, the price of the DiCAPac case made it attractive, so we decided to try it. We used it on a weekend snorkeling trip and it worked very well- no water got into the case, and it was relatively easy to use. The only challenge, as some other reviewers had pointed out, is ensuring that the camera lens is properly aligned with the tube, or you will get a black rim around a portion of the picture.
Summary: Brought this for my Dec Maui trip. I have been waiting to use one of this product while I go snorkling. Ordered 1 week before the trip and got it just in time. The pouch was a little bag but I didn't want to take the chance of it not fitting my Panasonic TZ3. I Stuffed the camera into it and the camera has plently of room to move around. Read it in some forum that u can use some paper towel or whatever around it to keep it in place.
Summary: Put in a Panasonic TZ7. Becos of the camera's wider-than-usual 25mm lens, I used Photoshop to crop the picture because the edges showed part of the lens extension. Also the flash will most likely be blocked becos of the bag's generic design. Its waterproofing capability is very good. I'd recommend it for general use by the pool or beach. This bag extends the usability of the camera, letting you take pictures which would otherwise be impossible to take.
Difficult to center the camera in the housing. Do not buy this until you have tried it with your camera.

Summary: I have two cameras that are listed with the Dicapac WP610 model. Here are my comments regarding how well the housing fits the camera. 1) Panasonic DMC-LX3: I have some trouble centering the camera in this bag. To make it work, I would have to customize the fit with some pieces of foam to stuff inside the bag. The Bag is definitely too roomy for the camera. The reason why the LX3 got assigned to this bag is because of the long lens extension it requires.
Summary: The waterproof case was too small for my Canon Powershot, so I can't comment on the product. My disappointment was in trying to return it to Amazon. I followed the instructions on the website, and could not get the page for returning merchandise. It kept timing out. I am not impressed.
Summary: Did not fit my Canon G5 - had to return product. Canon's website shows the circumference of the camera is bigger than what the DiPac website says this bag can hold. I bought anyway because the ad said it would work, but it didn't.
Summary: This waterproof case worked really well and kept my camera dry even after hours of snorkeling. I was able to take great underwater shots with much better quality than waterproof disposable cameras. In fact, everyone on my snorkeling trip was jealous, especially after I told them how much I paid for the case. The vendor was also great, they shipped it to me in just a couple of days and I had it in time for my trip.
Excerpt: Отличная штука, очень легкая и компактная, можно просто прихватить с собой и не париться, что таскаешь лишний вес и занимаешь место в рюкзаке.
Pros: Универсальность, подходит для многих моделей фотоаппаратов. Приемлемая цена. Компактность при перевозке. Главное - фотоаппарат ни разу замочен не был, получена куча фоток, видео и позитива.
Cons: Неудобный доступ к органам управления. Колесико переключения режима повернуть еще можно. Джойстик-колечко повернуть уже невозможно в принципе. Открыть вспышку тоже уже не выйдет - надо думать заранее.
