This provides sufficient protection from water hazards, but I am disappointed by the inconsistent picture results.
on July 19, 2016
I regularly kayak in wildlife-rich areas, so my waterproof camera (with a 4x zoom) was proving ineffective for zooming in to get details of the wildlife I was encountering. I decided to use my long-range-zoom point-and-shoot camera on voyages, but needed some way to protect it from getting wet. While the usual hazard is splashes, there have been occasions where the camera has fallen overboard and submerged. This waterproof camera 'bag' provides sufficient protection from those hazards for my point-and-shoot camera for my specific purposes, but the lens port had some unexpected results. If my camera wasn't zoomed out fully, to where the lens rested against the front of the port, I got some unexpected vignetting and also some out-of-focus problems (see attached photos). Some shots were in-focus, but many were not (the camera's sensor being fooled by the effects of the camera bag). There were focus errors in sunlight but also in clouded sky lighting as well. I am disappointed by the inconsistent results I have gotten so far.
I will be trying this out with other cameras to see if I can get better results. If I have better success, I will upgrade the rating and update this review accordingly - but for now, I found this to be very disappointing and can only give it a 3.
