      I purchased the WP-5S for my D7000 body. A few reviews stated that the body would be a very tight fit, but I found that there was ample room inside the case. I had to use 2 pieces of the provided foam underneith the camera body, and will have to cut a custom piece of foam for the left side of the body to keep it from moving around. You have to detatch the lens to get the body into the case, and reattach the lens through the front lens port. It shows this in the demo videos so I do not see what the big fuss is about.The kit lens (18-105) will not fit into the lens port with the bonnet attached. Without the bonnet, the filter rings will gaul the plastic lens, so make sure to takkke caution as any slight imperfections on this plastic lens cap will show through to your pictures, including light smudges (from sunblock, oils, etc) I used the AF-S 35mm f/1.8 with the WP-5S and it fit well, and did not. Take any pictures with the lens cap bezel. The pictures came out pretty good.I have used this for 1 day snorkeling and at the beach and it saw plenty of use. Very hhappy with the product and will continue to use it. Great value for money while protecting my D7000 investment.

      I got this case for snorkeling in Cancun, after tons of research, there is not much info out there. Hopefully people will find this info helpful.
      I got this one, as opposed to the WP-S10 because I have a smaller camera: Canon T3. It fit with room to spare on the sides and bottom, and it came with foam inserts to help make the fit better. I was surprised I still needed the foam inserts on both sides and the bottom of the camera. I used the kit lens: 18-55mm.
      I tested the case in my tub as suggested; squeeze out as much air as possible, put 8 inches of water in the tub and swooshed around pretty vigorously, and squeezed, etc. Had my 12 and 14 year olds do it taking turns for about 15 minutes. It came out dry, so that was good. I took some pictures with the case on, and the pictures were nice. The zoom of the lens was hindered by the case, and focus struggled because of the case contacting the lens. There was lots of extra room in the lens case, and the camera flopped around quite a bit, even with the foam inserts in.
      So in Cancun, I set up the camera as I did during the test, well ahead of time in the hotel, so when I got to the boat, I was ready to dive in. That is when the trouble began. Even though I tried to squeeze out as much air as possible, the case and camera floated quite a bit. I found it difficult to maneuver below 2 feet of water because of buoyancy and the water pressure squeezed the shutter finger hole and the lens portion of the case, which made focus difficult. After 2 hours of snorkeling, I got 5 pictures, although they were nice, I did not enjoy the experience. Especially since I also had to keep an eye on my 12 and 14 year old, so take that into consideration. My 12 year old had a disposable underwater camera, and my 14 year old had a goPro Hero II. They had more fun. And the goPro video was way better. I have yet to develop the disposable camera, but I am going to assume they were adequate. I went back to the boat to drop off the camera because moisture was developing in the camera case. We went snorkeling again the next day, and for that excursion, I took a disposable camera. Taking pictures was a lot easier, and the snorkeling a lot more fun.
      Would I do it again with this case? No.
      Am I going to use it again? Maybe for skiing, snow tubing, or getting in the water at the shore, above water.
      This would be a good case for rafting, or rainy outdoor shooting, but you need a lens that does not zoom or focus by changing lens length. Even above water, the lens focus is affected by rubbing against the case. I wish I took it with me while parasailing. You get really soaked while in the boat, heading out to the ocean, and we asked to be splashed in the water before we were reeled onto the boat deck. The case would have been good protection for leaving your camera on deck in the boat, or while in the air since there is tons of water spray. We go to water parks a lot, and I've never take my camera, so it would be good for that to carry around and not worry about random sprays of water. My wife never goes on rides, so she can keep an eye on the camera. It would be also be good for lazy river pictures. I wish I had this case when my kids were younger and played in the water park splash areas. I used to follow them around to keep an eye on them, and having a camera would have been great.
      So, most important take home point is: I do not recommend dunking the camera in the water deeper than 2 feet. In fact, I wouldn't dunk the camera case at all, and use it only for direct water splashes. I don't imagine you will get the quick draw shots from your camera using this waterproof case, because it takes time to compose the image, and the camera shifts around quite a bit in the case, so you have to shift the camera in the case to center it, find the shutter button, gently press to focus, or use the manual focus through the ring (not recommended since you cannot see through the case and eyepiece with any clarity), and hope the moment didn't pass. Good luck with that one.
      My next move is to get a weather resistant camera such as the Canon 7D and not have to worry about splashes, and leave the underwater pictures for the disposable cameras and the pros with the acrylic cases. If you cannot upgrade to a better camera or acrylic case, the protective housing is the next best thing. But don't go under water past 2 feet with it. You will have more fun snorkeling with a disposable camera.

        The case works just fine, in my case with mirrorless system cameras Sony A7 + FE28-70 and Fuji X-Pro 1 with 18-55, no other combination tested.
        There's still a lot of room in the lens compartment, so bigger lenses won't be an issue.

        4 Stars, because the handling of the camera is quite an issue, but right now i can't think of a better solution, either.

          About to use this underwater housing to photograph the Songkran Water Festival in Thailand, I think it will be perfect! It's perfectly waterproof (make sure to test it without the camera in it before using the case!) and pretty easy to use... I am using it for the Canon 6D and 24-105 L lens. Unfortunately I can't zoom in at all with this case (better to get the next size up if that's important for you), but for my purposes the wide angle is fine!

          Looking forward to trying this out on shallow dives as well!

          I've recently used the case on my Nikon D5000 in the pool and in the ocean. Haven't had any issues with the plastic fogging up and no leaking whatsoever. Only thing that's a little difficult to use is the manual focus and zoom. Other than that, I absolutely love the case and you can't even tell that theres a layer of plastic over the lens. Really satisfied with the product.

            I used this case with my Canon Rebel T3 for a Hawaii trip swimming with sharks. The case in no way compromised the quality of my pics and did its job of keeping my camera nice and dry. Its very simple to use and my only suggestion is to make sure you get as much air out as possible. I didn't do this well enough and it was very bouyant. My only difficulty with it. Great buy.

            Comments about DiCAPac WP-S5 Waterproof Case for Small DSLR Cameras:

            I bought this before a weeklong trip to the Caribbean in order to take pictures while snorkeling. The case worked great for taking pictures on the beach, but posed a few challenges under water. But overall, despite all the drawbacks that are detailed below, I was very satisfied with it and in this price range, this is probably the best waterproof case you could find for your SLR.

            I have found it fairly easy to use. My camera (Canon EOS Rebel T3 with kit lens) was very easy to put in, although I had to remove the strap before I put it into the case. It might have fit without with the strap folded on top or below the camera, too. However, do not count on being able to quickly take the camera in and out of this case. It does take some time and there is a risk of exposing the camera to the sand and water droplets in the process. I ended up taking a few pictures on the beach with the camera out, then putting it in the case and keeping it there for the rest of the day. I also have doubts if this product will last many years, but it looks reasonably durable to survive and perform well for a few vacations.

            The case seals very well and does not leak, although be sure to that the Ziploc-type closure at the top is sealed before rolling up the top part (e.g., try squeezing the air of the case). And make sure to perform the test described in the manual before you put your camera in. I also threw in a couple of silica gel packs inside (2 are included with the case).

            The case is great for taking pictures in the environments where the camera may get wet, such as in the water at the beach. However, I could not access manual focus control through the case, so I had to shoot with autofocus, which had an additional drawback of draining the battery faster than I used to. Also, zooming is somewhat more difficult and because the case is generic and does not fit my camera model perfectly, I had to watch out for vignetting from the lens cover. Nevertheless, I took a few good pictures, including some from the water level point of view.

            Under water, the camera controls became even more limited. Zooming was practically impossible. In fact, if you have a zoom lens, you will most likely be limited to only one focal length, the one that corresponds to the shortest barrel length, because of the water pressure. Also, you cannot really use the viewfinder when underwater, it looks very blurry and small when you look in it through a fogged mask. I switched to Live View, but often the LCD screen completely washed off, so in those cases the only workaround was to point the camera in the direction of the subject, focus, press the shutter button, and hope for the best. Because it was hard to read the LCD screen, I switched to the Program AE ("P") mode, and shot at ISO 400 with no exposure compensation, and let the camera set the aperture and shutter speed. Again, I was able to get a few good pictures. The best ones are of relatively large, stationary, and high-contrast subjects, such as of a large starfish on the sand or of brain corals, but I was also able to get a few good shots of a school of purple fish.

            One point I would like to stress is that it does take some practice to learn how to use the camera in the case, particularly under water. So plan to take some time to familiarize yourself with the the camera controls, learn how to swim with it, and to explore your shooting environment and note its features and challenges.

              This is a great waterproof case. I did some tests with it right away and the image quality is great for so little money. I haven't tested it very deep yet, but I had it completely submerged and not a drop of water got inside.
              I would recommend that you try and get all the settings right on the camera before you put it into the case, as it is difficult to adjust things once it is inside. Also unless the lens is very small you have to put the body and the lens in separately. I used my Canon 24-105 lens (at 24) and it fit in the case perfectly, with maybe half an inch of extra room, just to give you an idea of what size lens this accomodates.

              I purchased the waterproof case so I could attend the colour run with my wife, in the colour run as you go through the 5k run at each check point they shoot particpants with colour dust, at the end you look like a rainbow. I walked slowly through each check point taking pictures, getting lots of attention and hence lots of dust. Not a spec on the camera, and the photos were great, having the lens inside kept the pictures clear. The buttons on my D3100 were a little tricky to work with but we got'er done. I would suggets playing with the camera and case before your big event, just to make sure you don't get frustrated when it comes time to taking pics. And oh ya, its a little tricky looking at the camera display, especially when dust is involved.

              I was skeptical at first. A bag will keep it safe? Well, it did and it worked great. I was using it to take pictures and videos in a pool for 2 hours and not a drop inside. The images and video are super clear and it is easy to use the controls. The lens is not so easy to zoom but once you get used to it it is a breeze. I recommend this to everyone on a budget that needs shallow shots. Would recommend putting some lead diving weights in with it to help hold it down though.

Took it down about 9 feet for an extremely short time and had no problems. its definitely waterproof but not bomb proof, in other words, this is for light duty use to get some creative shots without dropping a couple grand on a full blow underwater enclosure.

                Bought this as an alternative to cheap, low photo quality "waterproof" digital cams. The bag is a little big for the camera I bought to use with (Cannon SX1-IS), but fits a DSLR very well. Tested to 6' in a salt pool for 15 or so minutes. No water intrusion into the bag. The finger "socks" take some time to get used to. Had a few unintended zooms. Also, I tended to rest my palm on the controls to hold the camera at depth since it's VERY buoyant.

                Photos taken inside the bag are clear and good. No lighting, but in clear water and sun, the colors where better than expected.

                Bottom line is for the money, there is NOTHING better if you already have a camera you love.

                Comments about DiCAPac WP-S5 Waterproof Case for Small DSLR Cameras:

                I got this case for snorkeling in Cancun, after tons of research, there is not much info out there. Hopefully people will find this info helpful.
                I got this one, as opposed to the WP-S10 because I have a smaller camera: Canon T3. It fit with room to spare on the sides and bottom, and it came with foam inserts to help make the fit better. I was surprised I still needed the foam inserts on both sides and the bottom of the camera. I used the kit lens: 18-55mm.
                I tested the case in my tub as suggested; squeeze out as much air as possible, put 8 inches of water in the tub and swooshed around pretty vigorously, and squeezed, etc. Had my 12 and 14 year olds do it taking turns for about 15 minutes. It came out dry, so that was good. I took some pictures with the case on, and the pictures were nice. The zoom of the lens was hindered by the case, and focus struggled because of the case contacting the lens. There was lots of extra room in the lens case, and the camera flopped around quite a bit, even with the foam inserts in.
                So in Cancun, I set up the camera as I did during the test, well ahead of time in the hotel, so when I got to the boat, I was ready to dive in. That is when the trouble began. Even though I tried to squeeze out as much air as possible, the case and camera floated quite a bit. I found it difficult to maneuver below 2 feet of water because of buoyancy and the water pressure squeezed the shutter finger hole and the lens portion of the case, which made focus difficult. After 2 hours of snorkeling, I got 5 pictures, although they were nice, I did not enjoy the experience. Especially since I also had to keep an eye on my 12 and 14 year old, so take that into consideration. My 12 year old had a disposable underwater camera, and my 14 year old had a goPro Hero II. They had more fun. And the goPro video was way better. I have yet to develop the disposable camera, but I am going to assume they were adequate. I went back to the boat to drop off the camera because moisture was developing in the camera case. We went snorkeling again the next day, and for that excursion, I took a disposable camera. Taking pictures was a lot easier, and the snorkeling a lot more fun.
                Would I do it again with this case? No.
                Am I going to use it again? Maybe for skiing, snow tubing, or getting in the water at the shore, above water.
                This would be a good case for rafting, or rainy outdoor shooting, but you need a lens that does not zoom or focus by changing lens length. Even above water, the lens focus is affected by rubbing against the case. I wish I took it with me while parasailing. You get really soaked while in the boat, heading out to the ocean, and we asked to be splashed in the water before we were reeled onto the boat deck. The case would have been good protection for leaving your camera on deck in the boat, or while in the air since there is tons of water spray. We go to water parks a lot, and I've never take my camera, so it would be good for that to carry around and not worry about random sprays of water. My wife never goes on rides, so she can keep an eye on the camera. It would be also be good for lazy river pictures. I wish I had this case when my kids were younger and played in the water park splash areas. I used to follow them around to keep an eye on them, and having a camera would have been great.
                So, most important take home point is: I do not recommend dunking the camera in the water deeper than 2 feet. In fact, I wouldn't dunk the camera case at all, and use it only for direct water splashes. I don't imagine you will get the quick draw shots from your camera using this waterproof case, because it takes time to compose the image, and the camera shifts around quite a bit in the case, so you have to shift the camera in the case to center it, find the shutter button, gently press to focus, or use the manual focus through the ring (not recommended since you cannot see through the case and eyepiece with any clarity), and hope the moment didn't pass. Good luck with that one.
                My next move is to get a weather resistant camera such as the Canon 7D and not have to worry about splashes, and leave the underwater pictures for the disposable cameras and the pros with the acrylic cases. If you cannot upgrade to a better camera or acrylic case, the protective housing is the next best thing. But don't go under water past 2 feet with it. You will have more fun snorkeling with a disposable camera.

                  Waterproof your regular cameras. It works perfectly and actually fits both my cameras. It is a little awkward. But if you just shoot video or limited photos without flash, perfect.

                    The device can protect your camera but it takes some ingenuity making it hold the camera properly in the bag so that it can function normally. Otherwise, trying to position the camera, operating the camera, getting your shot, are going to be very difficult. Also, external zoom cameras may have a problem extending the lens against water pressure unless the bag is at least partially inflated. I would think that a fixed lens camera would be best in this protective container. Another concern is, you must exercise due diligence in checking the container integrity. One small hole and a valuable camera could be lost.

                    For occasional use, this product could be useful and it is, by far, less expensive than most of the alternatives.

                        I tried being very careful with this waterproof case, tested it out and got used to handling the D3100 in it before I used it in the ocean. Within about 30 minutes of snorkeling, the bag started to leak. Thankfully I had placed many silica gel packets in the bag. It appears to have leaked around the lens cap portion. I have not ruled out my own failure in sealing the bag, but it was still a bit scary. Will possibly use silicone grease around the lens cap threads if I use it again. Oh well, you get what you pay for! I did get a few good pics.

                              I purchased the WP-5S for my D7000 body. A few reviews stated that the body would be a very tight fit, but I found that there was ample room inside the case. I had to use 2 pieces of the provided foam underneith the camera body, and will have to cut a custom piece of foam for the left side of the body to keep it from moving around. You have to detatch the lens to get the body into the case, and reattach the lens through the front lens port. It shows this in the demo videos so I do not see what the big fuss is about.The kit lens (18-105) will not fit into the lens port with the bonnet attached. Without the bonnet, the filter rings will gaul the plastic lens, so make sure to takkke caution as any slight imperfections on this plastic lens cap will show through to your pictures, including light smudges (from sunblock, oils, etc) I used the AF-S 35mm f/1.8 with the WP-5S and it fit well, and did not. Take any pictures with the lens cap bezel. The pictures came out pretty good.I have used this for 1 day snorkeling and at the beach and it saw plenty of use. Very hhappy with the product and will continue to use it. Great value for money while protecting my D7000 investment.
