    Review by Mirko Vukasovic, added 09/07/2014: the case worked WONDERS
    So, a few months ago I received this Aquapac waterproof case and today I thought that the lack of cool expeditions would not an excuse (anymore) to not to try this thing out. The case worked WONDERS and the results are shown here.

    Review by Chris Skone-Roberts, added 11/05/2012: Tips From A Pro
    To Disperse Water Droplets on the Lens: Most Pros use Rain-X. The guys in Maui use half an onion and rub it on the lens. But my personal favourite is to use waterproof sunscreen - the higher the factor the better. When you dip the lens just lift it clear of the water and blow the droplets off.

    Opening/Closing: Never EVER open the case with wet hands. Only ever insert/remove the camera with the case completely upside down, with the opening at the bottom.

    Taking shots: Rather than shooting in normal style of looking at what you see through the view finder, start shooting at what you are pointing the camera at you will get the hang of it. Feel free to look at the images on my site under kite-surfing and see the results we get.

    Review by Rou Chater, UK (www.iksurfmag.com), added 18/07/2011: Very impressed!
    The cases arrived nice and early yesterday and we were able to get them down the beach and test them straight out. We have a Canon 20d which is quite large so it is a snug fit, but once in all the controls can be operated very easily. Was impressed to find you can operate all the controls with relative ease. The shots speak for themselves and considering it was a first effort they aren't a bad bunch. Will get it out again next time the sun dares to shine and have another crack with it. Overall very impressed!
    Review by Camera Girl, USA (bhphotovideo.com customer review), added 18/07/2011: Just what I needed
    Just what I needed. I bought this waterproof case to be able to take my camera with me on a kayaking trip on vacation. I used it there and was very pleased with how it worked - it was a relief to know that even if I dropped the camera in the ocean, it wouldn't get wet, and it would float. I ended up also using the case whenever it rained - we were still out doing things (hiking, walking on the beach, etc.) and I wanted to be able to take pictures! It worked like a charm. PROS: Lightweight, Seals Easily, Strong Construction. CONS: None. BOTTOM LINE: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
