    DiCAPac WP-610 reviews

    WP610 Waterproof Underwater Case is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from WP610 Waterproof Underwater Case I used this case last week with my new Canon powershot sx130 camera while snorkeling in the Virgin Islands. The case worked and I got some good shots. There weren't any leaks. I don't know how long this case will last, but I don't snorkel that much. It can be a bit tricky to use the zoom with this case, but it can be done. My pictures and video came out great. The main problem is that you cannot see the display underwater, so you have to just point the camera and shoot. From what I have read this can be a problem with any digital camera underwater, not an issue related to this particular case. For an inexpensive underwater case that you will use occasionally this does the job.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as expected I used the case with a Nikon 7700 with a couple problems that can easily be fixed. The first issue was when zooming all the way in (lens full extension) it would sometimes error out because of hitting the plastic lens of the case. The supplied tube extension would fix this but make the next problem unfixable. When going wide angle (lens fully retracted) the edge of the lens tube of the case would be in the images. I will make a thin pad for the front of the camera to make room for full lens extension and make a pad to fit between the back of the camera and case to keep the case lens tube out of the frame. The case was water tight to a foot under the surface, as expected. I would not attempt any deeper without many test plunges.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job. I have used this for shooting while boating, where there is some splashing, spray, etc. The problems are that it's not quick to insert my Canon G10 because the fit fairly snug. Also, there isn't room to put it in with the strap on, so there's strap fiddling. On the positive side, it does a great job of protecting the camera, and the pictures came out perfectly clear. And it does have it's own strap so you can still wear the camera as usual. The controls are still usable, though the ones on the top that are dials are a little awkward. The price was good for the protection provided.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked decent I used this during multiple snorkel outings on a recent trip to Hawaii with my Panasonic LX3 and it worked decently well (as expected). No water leakage, decent shots, and saved the expense of purchasing underwater disposable cameras. Display can be hard to view underwater through the plastic, and mode dial is hard to turn through the plastic but manageable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from doesn't fit Panasonic DMC-ZS100 Seems like an economical solution to underwater use, especially if it is infrequent. The controls are a fairly hard to operate, but that was expected. My main problem was that the lens cover of the case is 1.5 inches long and that the lens of the DMC-ZS100 extends to 3 inches when fully zoomed. The camera won't fully zoom when in the case and trying to do so could damage the camera. I returned it for the next larger sized case, the WPS-3. Hopefully that will work. The lens length spec for the case did not seem to be available when I talked to customer service. Overall pleasant experience with B&H.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well, clear photos I used this with an Olympus E-P2 while snorkeling, and it took great pictures. This is a great cheap option for taking water photos, and also just for protecting your camera when at the beach etc. My camera fit in the case pretty well, though the thickness and durability of it makes using the controls on the top of the camera somewhat awkward. I also took it on a shallow scuba dive and the case remained airtight. Unfortunately my camera didn't work - maybe the vacuumed state of the case allowed too much pressure on the camera controls? Luckily it recovered when I got back to the surface...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Underwater Case For Leica D-Lux 4 I used the WP610 to take my Leica D-Lux 4 snorkelling in the ocean & it worked great. The lens clarity of the case cap was very good & I got great pictures both in & out of the water with the camera in it. The underwater pictures will require some curves adjustments, but that is because of the water clarity & lighting, not the case. With the camera lens at the full wide setting I didn't notice any vignetting at all, & there was plenty of room between the camera lens & case lens/cap that i didn't have to worry about it pushing against (do not add the cap extension if you use this model of camera). Also, it was buoyant enough that I didn't have to worry about losing it if I dropped it overboard, or let go while swimming as I didn't squeeze all of the air out of it before sealing. It was a bit of a tight fit for the camera, & the small foam piece that is provided for padding could have been better if it was the full length of the case, but it wasn't a show stopper by any means. Also, the buttons/dials on the camera were a bit hard to get at, but once I figured out the tricks it worked out well. It would have been nice if the cap housing didn't block the onboard flash if it was required, but luckily I didn't need it. A larger version of this case that could accomodate the hot shoe flash that accompanies my D-Lux would be a great addition to the line, but I got great pictures without it. For the price & my needs, it was a great addition to my pack without having to give up image quality, or having to spend a mint on a metal housing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice price alternative to a housing I called originally to get an underwater housing for my Panny Lumix DMC-ZS7, and the product expert suggested I get the Dicapak instead. A nice alternative to a 250$ housing. Now there are downsides to the Dicapak. 1> Fit fit fit. I had to mess around with mine, cutting foam inserts of my own, to get my camera to center in the Dicapaks lens. Even still, I'd suggest you run some zoom, as even with my careful fitting, if I'm not slightly zoomed, the lens shows up. 2> The expert did not recommend silica paks for moisture/condensation. I bought the Aquapak 905's and the EWA marine rechargeable packs. Either works fine. The EWA's can be recharged 5 times in an oven at 130D if I recall correctly. I'd also suggest you look into the Auto Magic filter. I did alot of research and found this. They work really well. The Dicapak's work fine for snorkeling.
