    I got this prior to a trip to Niagara Falls where pictures would be taken under drenching conditions. I did put a paper towel in the bag to test the waterproof nature before I used it though, and was satisfied that it worked. Because of the optical lens in the product, my pictures came out just as clear in quality as when this pac is not being used. You do have to remember to wipe water droplets off of the pac lens every so often though, in order to keep the pictures clear. I kept a soft paper towel in my pocket for that. It's only getting a 4 star rating though because the stiff plastic did make it a bit more difficult to use various camera buttons, especially when those buttons are right next to the sealed up end of the pac. Granted, the plastic has to be tough enough to remain impenetrable despite applying pressure against metal ridges of camera buttons. And every time my camera's lens receded when I turned it off, I had to check to be sure I had the camera in the right place in the pac before I could turn it back on so the camera lens could come back out. Occasionally, and not surprisingly, I did get black arcs in my pictures because I didn't always have my camera lens pressed up to the front of the pac lens. But it was worth having for this trip and for future water related events because everything did stay dry and I could take as many pictures as I wanted with a variety of camera settings, unlike with a cheap film type waterproof camera. I have lots of good pictures. Definitely worth it.

    I bought the Dicapac waterproof bag for my RX100 and tried it out kayaking on the river today.

    The bag is poorly designed so that the end that rolls up is on the right hand side blocking the shutter button and zoom control. If you try to put the camera inside the bag upside down to avoid this problem, then the stiff seam in the bottom of the bag blocks the shutter.

    It is impossible to operate the camera one-handed with this bag. Often when shooting from the kayak, I need one hand free to hold my paddle or hang onto a rock in the middle of a rapid.

    The rigid tube which holds the window is not big enough to go over the control dial around the lens on the camera. Because of this, the camera lens does not stay lined up with the tube. When you turn the camera on, the lens tries to extend and jams, restarting several times.

    Because the lens does not stay centered well, the edge of the window shows up in some photos.

    Many buttons and control dials are not usable through the bag. It is barely possible to actuate the shutter and zoom control. Other buttons such as the movie rec button are easily actuated by accident just handling the bag.

    Water drops are a big problem on the window. I usually bring a piece of chamois to clean the drops off before shooting, but I forgot to take it with me today.

    The screen is difficult enough to see in bright light without the bag. The shiny vinyl of the bag makes it even harder to see.

          Comments about DiCAPac WP-570 Waterproof Case:

          Quite satisfied with the quality of the photos. We had a very strong rain fall and flooding in the area, so I tested the case in that conditions. Attaching 2 photos - one with the rain pouring over me and very strong wind and the other one, managed to hold the raincoat over the camera (in the case), so to avoid the drops. Tested it in the pool (under the water) as well - very clear photos (sorry have deleted the test shots). I have Panasonic TZ30 - fits perfect.
          Overall - happy withthe product, pls note very hard to manipulate the settings.

            The Nikon Coolpix did not fit well in the bag even though I ordered the size recommended by the maker. Could have been me but I could not operate the camera controls very well. Each practice photo looked as though it was taken through a porthole. If the camera fit better, it might be worth the trouble. The bag kept the camera perfectly dry. I opted for a compact underwater Fujifilm.

            Several years ago I purchased a DiCAPac Waterproof Case for a smaller camera and loved it. I take it with me while swimming in the pool and never worry about water leakage. I highly recommend this case.

            I was a bit uncertain at first about the DiCAPac for my LX-5, but I was positively surprised. It's not the same has having a pro underwater casing or camera, but it really performs as described. Great fun with it in Hawaii.
            The controls are a bit difficult to reach, and it vignettes a bit on 24 mm-e, but setting the camera in P at 35 mm-e it is almost perfect. The lens extends and it blocks the camera nicely; the screen is not so visible but hey... it works.

              Keeps the water out, nuff said.

              With a Canon g11 its hard to adjust any of the settings and sort of hard to fit the camera in the bag, but..I would still buy it again. It does what it is supposed to do for a very cheap price.

                  Works just as intended. As others noted, it's hard to operate the buttons through the plastic, but I suppose it depends on your model of camera. I was able to work most of the controls on my Canon PowerShot SX110IS. The zipper part doesn't actually "seal" like a ziploc baggie, but it still managed to keep my camera dry in the pool. I was even able to use the flash underwater at night.

                        It seems to work fine. The main problem is that is much larger than the camera (Panasonic TZ7). You can access the butron, but it's not easy to change the dial.

                        Comments about DiCAPac WP-570 Waterproof Case:

                        Reaffirming previous reviews, set it and forget it is the best use of the camera in the DiCAPac. I don't really put it completely underwater so can't really vouch for that but do use it at the beach to keep the sand and water out of my camera and still take pictures with no worry. On a very very windy day at the beach, no sand/water entered the bag. The long strap on the DiCAPac comes in handy too as I can wear it over my shoulder and ride bikes, walk etc. and have my camera right beside me. Well worth the money although wish the zoom could be used 100%, I could use mine 60-65% maybe, then it is stopped by the limited length of the DiCAPac. It would also be helpful if the bag was designed to keep the lens of the camera where it should be at all times. Movement of the camera inside the bag when not in use and maneuvering it where it should be when ready to snap a picture is sometimes a bit frustrating, But all in all there is no worry of your camera being ruined from sand and water, no loss of pictures, so these small frustrations for this price is well worth it since I can't run out and buy new camera at the drop of a hat. Thanks DiCAPac!

                          The label indicates that this item will fit a Nikon 9100, and it does--sort of. Because the lens housing flares out from the camera body, one is always fighting the alignment to avoid getting the protective lens edge in the picture--and that was when I was seated in a chair. I can't imagine how it would perform in the water.

                            I bought the Dicapac waterproof bag for my RX100 and tried it out kayaking on the river today.

                              Works well with my G15. Be sure to squeeze out some air before sealing it. Also be sure to hold the camera into the case lens or you might get the case's lens showing up in your video or photos.

                              I got this prior to a trip to Niagara Falls where pictures would be taken under drenching conditions. I did put a paper towel in the bag to test the waterproof nature before I used it though, and was satisfied that it worked. Because of the optical lens in the product, my pictures came out just as clear in quality as when this pac is not being used. You do have to remember to wipe water droplets off of the pac lens every so often though, in order to keep the pictures clear. I kept a soft paper towel in my pocket for that. It's only getting a 4 star rating though because the stiff plastic did make it a bit more difficult to use various camera buttons, especially when those buttons are right next to the sealed up end of the pac. Granted, the plastic has to be tough enough to remain impenetrable despite applying pressure against metal ridges of camera buttons. And every time my camera's lens receded when I turned it off, I had to check to be sure I had the camera in the right place in the pac before I could turn it back on so the camera lens could come back out. Occasionally, and not surprisingly, I did get black arcs in my pictures because I didn't always have my camera lens pressed up to the front of the pac lens. But it was worth having for this trip and for future water related events because everything did stay dry and I could take as many pictures as I wanted with a variety of camera settings, unlike with a cheap film type waterproof camera. I have lots of good pictures. Definitely worth it.

                                  I have a Sony DSC-HX9V which has a long zoom. This is the recommended case and it works beautifully. No leaks and I can operate the controls I need (buttons and the zoom lever that protrudes from the camera. Turning dials is probably not possible but this camera can switch to video record with a button so I'm happy. Well worth it. I wanted it for Kayak trips as insurance against a dunking and because there is always a bit of water splashed into the kayak. - Mary

                                    I fly fish rivers and lakes by wading or paddling in a float tube. I alway carry my canon g10 but was scared of getting it wet. No more...with my dicapac I don't have to worry out that. I can photograph my fishing trips or even video now. And it works just as well as those cases that cost 5 times as much. I would recommend this to anyone.

                                    I just got back from a snorkel trip in Cozumel. I used my Canon IS 250 digital camera in the WP-570 waterproof case. It fit perfectly because I made sure I looked at the compatibility chart on DICAPAC website. I strongly advise to consult that chart to make sure you buy a big enough case for you camera model. The case worked very well, the camera was bone dry after my snorkel. I took it to the depth of 15 feet with no problem. It was kind of hard turing the camera dial to change from picture mode to video mode but I managed. Do not forget to empty as much air as possible before sealing the case, it helps the case not to drag you back up when you dive. The only criticism I have is it does not cut the glare. If you are in the water on a very sunny day, you will get so much glare you will not be able to see the LCD screen well.

                                    Bought to use with Canon G12. Camera fit, although somewhat difficult to fit into case opening. Once in, it was almost impossible to manipulate even the most basic of the camera controls such as on/off and shutter. Absolutely impossible to attempt any more involved manipulations such as manually choosing iso or changing shooting mode. I am currently in the process of returning this item.

                                            Although manufacturer claimed it fit our Canon cameras sx120IS and G12, the smaller camera did not even fit. The zoom extended too far and the cap would not fit screw tight over the zoom....results....bad seal.
                                            The camera is difficult to load into the bag and awkward to operate.
                                            The theory is good, but this product fell short of the expectation. I can't think of a "pro" for it. A housing for a G12 costs $200+ but this alternative is no money saver if it doesn't work!

                                              The case is big so you can't actually use the camera. And if you have a turn dial on the camera, it is impossible to turn it while it is in the case.
