I was somewhat skeptical and the pouch sat in my closet for many months. But on a recent trip to Cancun, we went out on a motorboat excursion and fortunately I had placed my camera (a Canon Powershot SD950 IS) in my pouch. We got caught in an unexpected downpour in the open seas, unfortunately. If not for this pouch, my camera would have gotten completely drenched along with the rest of my belongings. I was also surprised that the zoom feature of my camera was still workable (the product description said it wouldn't work# but I think if you have enough room left in the pouch, the zoom has enough space to move out, so if in doubt about sizing, err on the size of larger, rather than smaller. Also, be really careful when opening your pouch. The pouch is not supposed to allow water to enter when fully sealed, but I noticed that when you do open it, water droplets do enter and any condensation trapped inside your pouch can easily short circuit your electronic devices. Save the dessicant enclosed with your pouch bc it can help to dry it out if you should get any moisture inside. In fact, opening it upside down on top of a bed or something #to catch your camera) might be a good idea to keep water from going in when you are unsealing it. Also, happy to note that my iphone was operable inside it. Overall, great product and I will buy more!Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Make sure it's sealed correctly

I bought this for use on a cruise for my digital camera. I feel that it is a good waterproof case (after testing it in the sink full of water), but operator error caused it to leak and the small amount of water that got in the case ruined my camera. I had a small crease where it snaps together, which you are not supposed to have, and water did get in. I don't blame the case, and I hope that my mistake will save others from having the same problem.

By far a great investment for capturing moments that normally would be hard to get without this product. I used it on our vacation to Play Del Carmen Mexico. I was able to carry my camera into the beach as well as a local water park and was able to capture quality pics. I had a lot of people asking me what my pouch was. I strongly recommend it if you have a slim digital camera, as it might give a few problems with a thick camera if you have a zoom lens. I plan on using it on every trip that might involve water.

The case was perfectly waterproof, and took pretty good photos. It was great in the rain, everyone else was taking "quick shots" and quickly hiding the digital camera. But not me, I could take the time to compose my shots and never had to worry. I could even work the controls too.

Fits a Canon SD800IS fine and the photos during kayaking turn out fine, but it's difficult to press the buttons on top of the camera. Still, there isn't any other product that offers this much protection.

Took great pics snorkeling in St. Thomas
Too small for a Konica Minolta digital camera

Too small for a Konica Minolta digital camera, otherwise looks good

Great product, but requires a bit of patience and skill

I recently used the aquapac compact digital camera case during my trip to Hawaii. The bag did a fabulous job at keeping my camera nice and dry, but made underwater picture taking a little awkward. My snorkeling pictures taken on a sunny day in shallow waters came out the best, but I found that pictures taken above water turned out blurry due to water drops on the outside of the case. I have used disposable underwater cameras before and those pictures did not come out half as good as the pictures I took with the aquapac.
