I was a bit nervous plunging my camera underwater in this bag (or any bag!)... but was very very happy with this product. Water tight! Worked great! I only sent it down about 10-15 feet - although it says it is good to 20 meters (I didn't test that depth).
Used with Canon PowerShot SD1100IS (Compact camera) - There is plenty of extra space for a bit larger camera (see dimensions).
PROS: Light, easy to use, inexpensive, extras in the package (cleaning cloth, clip, elastic wrist/arm band), photos turned out excellent (on auto - no flash, underwater, and movie settings), bag is very flexible - allowed me to change my camera settings (my camera has a slider between movie/photo/play), keeps water out!
CONS: Easily scratched lens area, camera can shift around inside bag (I added 'stuffing' to position the camera better), working with a bag around a camera takes a little extra effort and can be a little awkward (nothing you can't quickly get used to, though). The manual has been translated from a foreign language (not very well), however, the manual is really unnecessary - use of product is self-explanatory.
TIPS: Rinse (outside) of bag after each use - blot dry (to avoid 'spots' drying on the lens). Remove camera after each use. Open bag to air-out or condensation will accumulate inside. Add foam "stuffing" around camera to help prevent camera shifting around and to help position camera lens in center of bag lens area. Squeeze out air, seal.
Overall... I am very happy with this product and would recommend it!
