Ok, but not Great!
on June 6, 2011
This is an OK stop-gap solution, but don't expect high quality pictures or easy use.
1. Yes, it's waterproof! Did testing before we left for our trip to Mexico. Had it snorkeling in rough waters and in calm, without any leaks or problems.
2. Can not use the controls on your camera at all. You have to set it and hope for the best.
3. Have to zoom camera beyond the lens cover so you are always zoomed in a bit. If you don't it will look like you are taking pictures through a port hole.
4. Can not see your LCD display when under water or in extremely sunny weather.
This is a good choice for a simple solution. I plan on buying a waterproof digital camera because this is not ever going to provide you a high quality solution or pictures.
We took this on our vacation to Mexico at the end of May in 2011. We have a DMC TZ1 camera that we used this pouch for. You have to setup your camera before putting in the pouch, so you need to set the dial being careful when you put it in that you don't bump it and change your settings. You can't see the LCD screen and also moister will get in to the case by just putting it in with wet hands. What this caused is the case to start to fog up in hot weather. We did get some good pictures but it is a point and click and pray approach. Since you can't see the LCD you pretty much are getting pics from luck. I will post some pictures from the camera when I get a chance. In then end, good solution, but don't expect perfection.
