          Comments about Polaroid Underwater Housing for Canon EOS Rebel T3i or T4i DSLR Camera and 18-55mm Lens:

          While this underwater case appears to be well built (I never did submerse it) and it appears ALMOST all the functions of the camera are accessible, the flash is NOT accessible. There is not enough room in the housing above the camera for the camera's flash to "pop-up" all the way. The flash does pop-up about 1/3 of the way and does allow the flash to fire. However, there is no way to attach an external/slave strobe (via the hot shoe) and there is not enough light through the front of the housing to activate a slave strobe via an optic connection (I tried). Also, when I removed the camera (after firing the flash several times in the housing) and closed the flash, I got an "err05" error when I tried to re-open the flash. The camera would "click" 3 times and the flash would not open and the "err05" appeared. I do not know why but the flash did eventually start working again.Essentially, this housing is worthless for use diving as a strobe is necessary below about 10 feet.

          Comments about Polaroid Underwater Housing for Canon EOS Rebel T3i or T4i DSLR Camera and 18-55mm Lens:

          This housing has kept my camera dry underwater so far. So in that sense, it does exactly what it's supposed to do. It also gives pretty good access to camera controls, though not full access, and some controls are a little fiddly. If this housing had cost 3 times what it did, that would bother me, but for less than $, the features are adequate and work fine.
