The cool gray Waterproof Case for Mirrorless / Compact System / Bridge Digital Camera from Aquapac enables you to shoot beneath the water's surface with your mirrorless, compact system, or long-zoom point-and-shoot "bridge" camera. The attached, TC Aquaclip's, secure seal gives the case a depth rating of 16.4' and allows it to remain submersed for up to 30 min; however, the case is designed to float with the camera inside. It also protects against dust, dirt, and sand.
All camera controls are accessible through the case's supple TPU material. The built-in lens port is constructed from clear acrylic. As the camera's built-in flash is blocked by the port, it can't really be used for subject illumination. However, you could use the flash to trigger an optional external flash, which would have to be wireless, since the housing has no flash connector.
At a mere 6 ounces, the case is lightweight and easy to maneuver. Additionally, it includes an adjustable, gray shoulder strap, as well as three, 2-gram desiccant packets to absorb condensation.
