Experience New Places To Take Pictures

From now on with the Polaroid waterproof housing case owners of these cameras will have the freedom to take a photo by the sea or in your swimming pool - above the water or under it. Take your camera surfing, yachting or diving to depths of up to 130 feet. There is also occasions that occur out of water where your waterproof case will help you take extraordinary pictures; use it on in the rain, snow or dusty and muddy environments - pretty much wherever and whenever you need to protect your valuable camera.

Taking a professional quality camera diving to depths exceeding 100-ft mandates that you use a professional quality underwater camera housing, and this Polaroid housing for Canon & Nikon SLR cameras offers that quality. Twenty-two camera operations are available through the use of waterproof push buttons and rotary dials. You'll have complete control of camera shake, underwater color balance, HD movie recording and HD photos.
Complete instructions are provided for you to test that the housing is watertight each and every time you use it. The Polaroid camera accessories company is as interested in protecting your camera as much as you are. That's why there are two large water seals come together and are kept in contact by three housing clamps holding the front and back closed. To better control the camera during underwater use, it is recommended that this waterproof housing be attached to a dual-handle stabilizer mount available from your Polaroid camera accessories dealer.

Size: GF3 14-42mm
I bought this to protect my camera whilst on a voluntary project in Fiji and it truly exceeded my expectations. Diving and snorkelling this camera was excellent, taking clear images and allowing a good amount of functionality underwater. As the GF3 is a touch screen camera it is obviously a little difficult to adjust to not using the screen but one can switch between 2 or three different modes easily whilst underwater. Swimming is also easy whilst it is attached to your wrist. I was able to swim easily in a strong current whilst spear fishing! The casing is very strong and allows for brilliantly clear photos, whilst underwater my only quip was that focusing was a little difficult as it is usually a touch screen action or adjusted using the focus ring and both of these things are closed off. On land the case also excelled, protecting from wind, rain, sand and mud. I went climbing with this case and it amply protected it against bumps against the rocks and whilst hiking we needed to travel through several rivers and it fared very well, even covered in mud the case was fully functional, buttons didn't jam and the lens cleared easily without residue or watermarks. All in all the case worked extremely well against all the elements, protected my camera against being (accidentally) dropped into the sea from the deck of a boat, dropped on the ground by small children with sticky hands and not causing my camera to overheat in temperatures of up to 36 degrees! I would highly recommend it, even if you aren't considering diving!

This housing is ok for the money. However, it does have a few flaws.

The menu wheel cannot be accessed once it is in the housing which means you need to set everything before you dive.

The on/ off switch is a bit suspect. I needed to install the camera "upside down" and then check the on/off switch was working before diving.

The optic fibre connector on the housing was way too tight. I did bore it out a bit before going on holiday but was still too tight. It ended up snapping the end of the cable off in the housing but luckily I could still get it to work.

Other than this it worked fine and I tested down to 40 metres.

Like I said it is ok for the price but if your serious you should invest (a lot) more money to get something better.

Size: GF2 14mm Verified Purchase
I bought this for my GF2 and have been using this housing for around 30 dives so far and it is still working great, no water issues! The deepest I went with the camera was 110ft. I also chose the 14mm lens cause I don't want to carry such a bulky camera when I dive. The flash works great and takes pretty good pictures.

There is one thing I had an issue with:

There are some "room" between the camera and the housing itself. When I am in around 30ft of shallower, the on/off nob works fine. But when I am cold and deep water, the on/off knob stops working cause there is too much room between the case and the camera. There was a deep dive that I was not able to snap a pic of a sheep crab cause i was not able to turn the camera on. When I got home, I cut small pieces of foam and taped it on the inside of the housing. Now the camera fits snugly into the housing and the on/off knob works every time regardless of depth.

The product includes an extra O-Ring and a small bottle of silicone lubricator.
