Summary: With several methods (two zip-locks, three roll-up seals, and two Velcro seals), this waterproof case works very well and is an affordable solution for making most digital cameras safe to use in wet conditions. I have used it several times in minor conditions but am willing to try it out during a fishing or canoing trip at the next opportunity.
Summary: As the package recommends I put the Case in the water to test it. I set a cup on it to hold it down and left it there for several hours, checking it on occasion. After about 2 hours under an inch of water the inside of the case became stuck together...like sweat. When I opened it up the velcro closures were wet at every opening (3).
Pros: Lightweight, Seals Easily, Strong Construction
Summary: I purchased this product for a white-water kayaking trip through the Grand Canyon - lots of water and sand! I also intended to use it on our sailboat. The bag was easy to pack,lightweight and kept the camera dry. It was clumsy to use. Unless the camera's lens was exactly aligned with the case's lens portal, it would not extend and the camera would indicate "lens error." Lost many shots because of this.
Cons: Difficult to Close, Lens hung up on lens port, Made controls hard to use, Seaming began to fail
Summary: I'm planning to use this soon for snorkeling. The case is essentially a VERY heavy duty zip-lock bag shaped to accommodate a telephoto lens. I tested it while swimming in a 5' deep pool and it kept my camera dry. I was able to (1) turn my camera on and off, and (2) turn the camera flash feature on and off, but couldn't really operate the camera zoom lever through the case which requires a "rotating" action versus a "push button" action.
Summary: I used this waterproof bag with my Lumix TZ5. I was skeptical because it basically is a glorified ziplock bag for your point and shoot camera. But,after several snorkel trips while on vacation I have to say that it works quite well. It took some playing with to get it set up just right.
Pros: Easily Loaded Equipment, Lightweight, Seals Easily, Strong Construction
Summary: I got this at the last minute before a beach vacation to protect my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ8. It worked out all right. It kept out the water, salt and sand, which is what I needed. It has room (a popout area) for the camera lens to zoom out as it needs to, so it is functional. The lens on the popout unscrews incase you are in a waterless area and don't want to shoot through the extra lens, though all of my photos turned out fine either way.
Conclusion: Muy buena opción para tener una cámara de calidad y poder sacar fotos bajo el agua ya que por lo general las underwater son más básicas. Se requiere paciencia y práctica para colocar la bolsa.
Pros: Las fotos salen geniales a pesar del plástico, Si se asegura bien no entra ni una gota de agua ni arena
Cons: Si el agua está fría por lo general se empaña el lente de la bolsa., Hay que ser muy meticuloso para cerrarla porque si queda con aire adentro, la cámara se mueve., Estaría mejor con más capacidad de zoom.
Conclusion: En mi Canon A570IS funciona muy bien, pero se complica un poco al querer usar el zoom ya que no es con botones sino con ruedita y al estar bastante ajustada la cámara dentro d ela funda es un poco difícil moverla, al igual que la ruedita de cambio de modo (foto, video, etc).
Pros: Protección contra la arena, la nieve, el agua, etc., Fácil de utilizar., Muy duradera., Podes hacer tomas debajo del agua lo que es tremendamente divertido., Podés usar tu cámara con la tranquilidad de que no se va a ensuciar.
Cons: Algo incómodo para manejar cámaras con ruedita en vez de botones., Puede que la cámara se corra y la toma salga tapada en el borde con parte negra del soporte del lente., El lente se limpia prácticamente solo.
