            Comments about Polaroid Underwater Housing for Sony Alpha NEX-5 with 18-55mm Lens:

            I got this to protect my NEX 5N from salt water while kayaking in salt marshes. After the first excursion I can report it performed well. I only wish it was possible to adjust the zoom without removing it from the case. Most other functions, including menu and video, are accessible using external control access.The unit was never really submerged this trip so I cannot attest to water-tightness, but this was great protection against numerous salt water splashes, knocks, and did provide a sense of assurance the camera would survive a dunking.

            Haven't tried it yet in underwater conditions but everything's seems to be working we'll (except the zoom of course). The button for the diaporama view is not aligned though ( I think that was a model for a previous Sony camera modèle as well) but we can access the diaporama via the menu as an alternative. So all functions are available. Good product for the price overall!

              The engineering of this economical housing is great.
              The NEX 5 fit right in all functions available. Although I have not used in water, all the o-rings and seals look vary professional. Also comes with silicon greese for o-rings and 2 optional lanyards.
              And you can't beat the price.

              I bought this for my trip to Mexico, and it was amazing! I used it for snorkeling underwater photo/video and it was amazing experience.
              But be careful with exact model, if you have NEX - 3, buy case for nex-3, you wont be able to fit it otherwise.
