I set the camera up for "dummy mode" so that I wouldn't have to fiddle with controls. The shutter release was easy to operate. I could not get the zoom ring to turn, but it didn't really matter because wide angle was best for underwater shots anyway. A zoom lens left at wide angle, or a wide angle prime lens would be best.
The case seals at two points. A UV coated polycarbonate lens screws on to the case over the camera lens. At the top, you seal the case like a zip-lock baggie, then fold a flap over several times like a dry bag. This seals with velcro. Finally, a large velcro flap folds over the smaller flap. I would say that the case is more likely to leak from a puncture than from the seals.
It was difficult to see through the viewfinder with a dive mask on, so I mainly just pointed the camera at my subjects. Another reason why wide angle is the way to go.
I had no issues with the lens fogging, but some small packs of silica gel in the case to absorb humidity might be worth a try.
I think this case works about as well as one could hope at this low price point. I will test it before every use. Long term durability remains to be seen, but it seems as well made as any dry bag.
A separate flash would be nice, but that would require a big bucks case. In clear water, plenty of light transmits to the 10 feet depth I was shooting in.Read more ›
A few drawbacks to this product were:
-Too dificult to use a zoom lens underwater. There are holes for your fingers to rotate the lens but it is too hard to do while you are underwater and even if you zoom out the pressure seems to always push the lens back to its lowest zoom. I was using a 70-300mm lens.
-If you plan to use flash underwater you really have to figure out the right amount of air in the bag and where the flash will have room to actually get light out of the bag. Its tricky.
-Nothing mentions it in any manual, but it is a good idea to use an antifog spray for the housing's UV filter. It will get fogged up imediately without it.
I do absolutely recommend this product if you don't want to spend the money to get a custom housing or more expensive one. It definitely does the job. And I do like that you can always unscrew the housing's filter if you quickly want to get a clean shot before going back in the water.
It is hard to look through the viewfinder and virtually impossible to change any settings. So you'll have to set the camera to P-mode (or "automatic") and hope for the best. Even then you'll have to press the glass window against the lens to prevent vignetting. Dicapac is suggesting the existence of lens adapter rings (which would fix the position of the glass window against the front element) but I have not seen those yet.
So, despite all the shortcomings, four stars? Yes, because for a very small amount this bag WILL allow you to use your SLR under water. Although rated for something like 20' I would not try it out that deep, but I felt perfectly safe using it in a pool. Once the sealing is properly closed the camera is perfectly safe and I sense that the recommendation in the manual to test the bag in a bathtub (with a tissue inside the bag instead of a camera) is more to test the user's ability to close the bag properly (it is a bit tricky) than anything else.
Do not expect a perfect product - you will start to appreciate the specialized hard shells when using this. But it is still a great opportunity to use an SLR under water and for that I think it offers great value.
I purchased the DiCAPac WPS10 for our vacation to Maui this past May (2010) and I honestly have to say that being able to take pictures underwater was one of the funnest things that I did on our vacation! The pictures came out exceptionally well. I was somewhat surprised. And the "case" worked great (you will have adjust your expectations). I had no problems at all with the "case" sealing. The company stresses to make sure and test it before putting your expensive DSLR into it and taking it underwater and I would heed their advice. The "ziplock" type primary seal does not seem very good... at all. However, you roll the bag around the seal about four or five times and then use a velcro flap that keeps the rolled seal in place. Then there is another flap that secures this. With all that and being very careful I never had the slightest leak. But I still felt I was taking my cameras life into my hands. If the primary seal seemed a little better, it would give me more confidence.
They market it as a "case". In all honesty it's a bag. This model, WPS10, is supposed to be big enough to fit various models of cameras. And considering how big it is, I'm sure that it has no problem fitting a full frame DSLR. So for my Nikon D90, it was rather big. But I was able to make it work.
The biggest drawback for the product is that it is a bag. It has no rigid support and my camera kinda flopped around some.Read more ›
