First of all, I only tested this case with 3 lenses on the XT-1:
14mm f/2.8 - Works flawlessly!
23mm f/1.4 - Doesn't fit - circumference of aperture ring won't fit through port
60mm f/2.5 - Fits, but the focus extension of the lens will extend past the lens port's depth.
I tested this first, as suggested, by putting in some wadded up toilet paper inside the case and dunking it under water for a couple hours. After drying off the outside of the case and removing the tp, there was no evidence of water inside the case. Amazing what rolling some plastic and a few strips of velcro can do! Here comes the real test.
Real World Use:
I took this to the Caribbean for some underwater and near water photos with my XT-1. Not a bad alternative to a Canon 5dmk3 and a $5000 water proof case. Installing the camera into the case requires that you remove the lens and slide in the body through the top opening first. Once aligned with the lens port, attach the lens, seal the top, then lastly, attach the lens cover. The order is important to ensure as little air as possible inside the case once sealed.
There is a finger sleeve on the right side of the pouch, basically designed to press the shutter. This means that you have to be in full Auto, but most people who are using mirrorless cameras like the XT-1 prefer to shoot manual like me. This poses a problem as scenes change while the camera is in the case. I found it pretty difficult to adjust anything, especially the aperture ring.Read more ›
I would recommend that if you are using this, that you set it up at home and don't open it again until you get home. The atmosphere is simply too humid around bodies of water and you will inevitable trap moist air inside the bag if you try to do a lens change at the beach. Then, once you bring this into the cool water, the water vapor trapped in the case will condense on the inside surface of the front plastic "element." Also, if you use this in the ocean, be ready with a bottle of fresh water to rinse off the front plastic element as dried seawater will leave a salty brine behind.
I say that you should go for this product. Understand its limitations and you will be happy.
There is a waterproof cutout section for your finger to enter the bag to press the shutter. I think it would be pretty difficult to change camera settings whilst in the bag unless through this finger access.
Though the company says the camera controls are fully functional, in reality one may have difficulty accessing all of the controls through fingersock a bit cumbersome. The on/off switch and shutter button, and top controls were easiest to access, and some buttons on the back of the camera could be depressed through the thick plastic. (I'm not sure if touchscreen controls would function through the plastic - my camera does not have that feature). My camera lens fit into the case snugly. Included in the kit is an extension for longer lenses. Something to keep in mind is that the lens housing/cover that protrudes from the back can be screwed on and off. You will definitely want to make sure it is screwed in tightly before dipping it underwater!
You may want to test this at home in the bathtub with something besides your expensive camera to get an idea of how it works and how watertight it is. The case is mostly plastic with a Nylon strap and 'Dicapac' branding in large yellow letters on it; in other words, not subtle. The strap is fairly easy to adjust to fit over the neck or over the shoulder. It is attached with clips which help keep it from getting tangled and also make it easy to attach a strap of your own choosing.
For sizing, you may check the Dicapac website.Read more ›
