Summary: Bought this case for a trip to Mayan Riviera to get some shots while snorkeling. Case is well designed, seals engaged smoothly (you do need to remember regular applications of the gasket grease) and the case added minimal bulk for the job it does. I would certainly suggest this case to others. I referenced blurry photos in the Cons section but this is more a function of learning to use the camera while underwater than a failing of the case.
Summary: I bought the AW-DC50 all weather case with the intentions of going snorkeling and being able to use it for a lot of underwater shots on our recent vacation. We ended up mainly just lying on the beach, but I did take it out into the water and got some great quality shots that I may not have gotten with a disposable water camera. I was very pleased that the casing worked wonderfully, and did not leak.
Summary: I love this product, since it allowed me to take my beloved digital camera underwater so I could snap the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. Once the camera is in the case, it works just as normal. All of the buttons on the camera have corresponding bigger buttons on the case, making it simple to use while swimming.
Pros: Easy To Use, Floats, Functional, Great photos
Summary: Great product, works well with camera's underwater mode.But the desiccant packets are a must, not optional! Thecamera will produce condensation if going from warm to cold(which happens in most underwater situations). Condensationbuilt up inside my first canon sd450 and destroyed it. Canonwould not repair (very frustrating since I followed all theinstructions and manual precisely. manual does not mentiondesiccant packets by the way).
Excerpt: Jag är ägare till en Canon Digital IXUS 50 och delägare till en liten liten tös på 1,5 år (vid skrivandets stund) så ett undervattens hus var det ju ingen tvekan om att vi skulle ha. Canon AW DC50 är ett "plasthölje" som man stoppar ner kameran i och sluter till, och tätt blir det var så säker. Jag var ju bara tvungen att testa huset lite och stoppade ner kameran och slöt tätt.
Pros: Lätt att sätta in och ta ur kameran, lättåtkomliga knappar
