Aquapac AQUA-451 overview

  • 1Description

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.

Compatible Cameras
The case will accommodate cameras with the following maximum dimensions: a height of 3" (7.5 cm), a width of 4.7" (12 cm), a lens diameter of 3.1" (8.0 cm), and a lens length of 3.9" (10 cm). Examples include the Nikon J1 and J2; Panasonic GF5, GF6, and GX1; Olympus E-PL and E-PM series; and Sony NEX-3, NEX-5, and NEX-6

    Aquapac AQUA-451 reviews

    Waterproof Case for Mirrorless / Compact System / Bridge Digital Camera (Cool Gray) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea, but there are better options out there Using a Fuji, Sony, Olympus, or Panasonic mirrorless system? Get a Meikon hard case instead. I spent hours looking for a budget UW case for my XT-1 and in the end felt this was a poor investment. The Aquapac (and any other bag-type UW system) is suited for vacation snap shots at best. Getting a quality image is very difficult. The case is completely waterproof, and most comments about these bags leaking will likely be due to user error. I've fully submersed it in rivers and saltwater for minutes at a time with no problems. The accordion-like connection from the bag to the lens element is very difficult to work with- a rubber band and gaffers tape to keep it in place helped somewhat. The achilles heel of this system is the front lens element, which is a sturdy, but soft, plastic. I scratched it on my second use, and the damage makes photos unusable. The case now holds my speedlight. Fuji XT-1 with a smaller prime or 18-55 will fit, but is tight, and difficult to attach the lens to body once inside the bag. Fuji XE-2 fits much better. Zoom lenses are difficult to manipulate, and the aperture ring on Fuji lenses is almost impossible. Shutter priority works ok, as the SS dial is easy to manipulate once in the case. Save your money and look into a Meikon housing.
