Not For Me

TJ, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix did not fit well in the bag even though I ordered the size recommended by the maker. Could have been me but I could not operate the camera controls very well. Each practice photo looked as though it was taken through a porthole. If the camera fit better, it might be worth the trouble. The bag kept the camera perfectly dry. I opted for a compact underwater Fujifilm.
  • Pros: Water-tight Seals

DiCAPac WP-570 Waterproof Case

  • Excerpt: Several years ago I purchased a DiCAPac Waterproof Case for a smaller camera and loved it. I take it with me while swimming in the pool and never worry about water leakage. I highly recommend this case.

Works as expected --- had a great time!

  • Excerpt: I was a bit uncertain at first about the DiCAPac for my LX-5, but I was positively surprised. It's not the same has having a pro underwater casing or camera, but it really performs as described. Great fun with it in Hawaii. The controls are a bit difficult to reach, and it vignettes a bit on 24 mm-e, but setting the camera in P at 35 mm-e it is almost perfect. The lens extends and it blocks the camera nicely; the screen is not so visible but hey... it works.
  • Pros: Functional, Water-tight Seals
  • Cons: Difficult To Frame

  • Excerpt: Keeps the water out, nuff said. With a Canon g11 its hard to adjust any of the settings and sort of hard to fit the camera in the bag, but..I would still buy it again. It does what it is supposed to do for a very cheap price.
  • Cons: Difficult to Close

Works well...worth the money

  • Excerpt: Works just as intended. As others noted, it's hard to operate the buttons through the plastic, but I suppose it depends on your model of camera. I was able to work most of the controls on my Canon PowerShot SX110IS. The zipper part doesn't actually "seal" like a ziploc baggie, but it still managed to keep my camera dry in the pool. I was even able to use the flash underwater at night.
  • Pros: Easily Loaded Equipment, Lightweight

Ok

  • Excerpt: It seems to work fine. The main problem is that is much larger than the camera (Panasonic TZ7). You can access the butron, but it's not easy to change the dial.

Waterproof but a little clumsy to use.

  • Excerpt: Reaffirming previous reviews, set it and forget it is the best use of the camera in the DiCAPac. I don't really put it completely underwater so can't really vouch for that but do use it at the beach to keep the sand and water out of my camera and still take pictures with no worry. On a very very windy day at the beach, no sand/water entered the bag. The long strap on the DiCAPac comes in handy too as I can wear it over my shoulder and ride bikes, walk etc.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Water-tight Seals
  • Cons: Full Use Of Zoom

Not a Good Fit

not so rich Rich, B&H Photo
4 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The label indicates that this item will fit a Nikon 9100, and it does--sort of. Because the lens housing flares out from the camera body, one is always fighting the alignment to avoid getting the protective lens edge in the picture--and that was when I was seated in a chair. I can't imagine how it would perform in the water.

Not a good choice for rx100

SeeYouOnTheRiver, B&H Photo
1 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought the Dicapac waterproof bag for my RX100 and tried it out kayaking on the river today. The bag is poorly designed so that the end that rolls up is on the right hand side blocking the shutter button and zoom control. If you try to put the camera inside the bag upside down to avoid this problem, then the stiff seam in the bottom of the bag blocks the shutter. It is impossible to operate the camera one-handed with this bag.
  • Pros: Water-tight Seals
  • Cons: Awkward to use, Controls Not Accessible, Does Not Fit Camera Well, Poorly designed
