I haven't yet tested the floating/buoyancy of the case but it feels like it can float the weight of the camera. I will update on that later.
I saw in the picture that the side of the case does not come up to the top of the camera but I didn't really think too much about it until I actually got my camera into the case. I received an Olympus TG-310 (waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, freezeproof etc.) for the holidays and immediately went on to their website to see about floating cases and this is the exact case they recommend for my camera. When I put the camera in the case the side barely makes it to the middle of the camera. The clasp is a long bead that is held on to one end by a thin bungee string. The clasp secures by putting a looped bungee string around the bead. The case, when closed with the camera inside, does not feel like it will hold the camera that well during a very bumpy hike/bike ride but I may be wrong. I tested the hold manually and was able to pull my camera out of the side with it closed. Thankfully my camera is "rugged" and the case comes with a strap to tie to the camera so even if it does slip out it won't go far.
I think aside from the floating capability, having that strap to attach to the camera is the best feature offered. Again I want to say I like this case. I probably would still have bought it even if I read a review similar to mine and I would recommend this case.
As it happens I bought the case and the matching floating wrist strap. I saw a review saying the straps to attach the camera to the wrist strap and the case are not interchangeable. That is completely FALSE. I have tested it and cannot tell the difference between them and I am able to leave one side attached to the camera while snapping it in to either the case or the wrist strap.
Also, the case only comes up 3/4 of the way on the sides of the camera, and if you attach the lanyard, there's only one way the camera will go into the case, which means the power button is exposed. Twice in an hour while holding the camera in my hand I managed to accidentally turn it on.
Besides these two issues, the padding is awesome, and the flotation is excellent. If the toggle were a buckle, and the sides taller, it'd be a great case.
Also, my Olympus TG-630 has been turned on by accident on a few occasions, which will really limit the battery capacity. Doesn't matter how I load it in the case, a little pressure in just the right spot will turn the camera on. (I guess the camera deserves some responsibility, but this is the Olympus case. I kind of expect the camera and case would work together properly).
