    Was hesitant to use this but I bought a platinum warranty on my camera so I was covered either way should it flood.

    I took this scuba diving in the florida keys with my Nikon d3300 camera with a 18-55 lens. First off the pouch fit very well and wasn’t difficult at all to set it up. the controls are all pretty easy to reach with the finger holes.

    The manual says this goes to about 30 feet and that’s exactly how deep I took it. What you’ll notice the deeper you go the less and less air you’ll have in the case and it will start suctioning to your camera making it skin tight. If you went much farther than 30 feet I would be afraid of damage to your camera with how tight the casing gets. Make sure to trap as much air in the bag before going down so you have more leeway.

    The pictures came out great. Unfortunately I had my camera on the wrong settings underwater so the white balance is way off making everything blue and not that colorful but I left two pictures to show you guys that the pictures are still very clear and not ruined by the lens. One in water and one on land.

    If you are planning on going deeper than 30 ft or really like to mess with the setting a lot I would recommend getting one of those pricey fixed casings as when the case suctions to the camera it restricts movement.

    If you’re hesitant go ahead a shoot me any questions. I’m very satisfied with this and the extremely cheap price compared to most waterproof cases.

    *****last note for scuba divers the air in the camera bag will offset some of your weight so you may need extra weights to allow you to actually sink when using this. I had to add another five pounds I think.

    So far so good. I had the opportunity to try this case out in a pool. It kept the camera nice and dry and I can imagine it can be used on the beach to keep the sand out also.

    I was able to fit my Canon 5D Mark III with a 24-105L lens in the case. The lens will be loose in the lens compartment of the case, but one idea I tried was to wrap the lens with sheet styrofoam. This makes the lens nice and snug in the lens compartment. This also allowed for gripping the camera by the lens with my left hand as I usually do without the case.

    Another suggestion from a YouTuber is to put some weights in the bag as the air the bag keeps the bag afloat somewhat. I’m looking forward to trying this out again soon. Look up YouTube for underwater shoots for ideas. It’s especially nice if you’re into portrait photography.
