Hi, in todays paper saw this link to a a waterproof case for your camera. Thought it looked quite good at a reasonable price and wondered if would be of interest to anyone else....

I have used similar items before and found them ok. However the problem I found was that the water pressure will push the camera buttons if you try and submerge it more than about 1 foot. The bag is pressed into the camera and buttons are depressed even the shutter button.

Another problem is with the silicone sachet you need to put inside along with the camera to absorb moisture. These can burst as they float around freely. So if the water pressure pushes it against a sharp corner of the camera you could find thousands of tiny grains of silicone in the case with the camera. They get everywhere and can cause buttons or the lens to jam.

If you want to take pictures from the surface when snorkelling then they maybe ok but if you like to reach down, or even swim down to get closer to your subjects then you may find this product frustrating.

Thanks for the feedback Alicia & Paul. We are still considering the camera case. We haven't tried taking underwater pics before and wont probably go too far under so from what you say it may be ok for what we want. Don't really want to invest in an underwater camera at this point Smile
