In the words of our favorite singing crustacean, “Darling it’s better down where it’s wetter.” Now, if only your trusty camera could join you in all that splashy fun …
Guess what? It can! Just pop your DSLR into an Aquapac. This waterproof wonder has been independently tested and rated to keep your camera dry down a depth of 30ft. feet.
Simply slip your camera into the extra-tough plastic housing and close up the super safe Aquaclip seal. The clear acrylic lens upfront is perfect for shooting through, while protecting your precious lens. Turns out, life is the bubbles.
It’s not just for under the ocean adventures. Aquapac will keep your camera safe and sound in a rainstorm, in the snow, at the pool and in sand too. It’s ready for all the messiest kinds of fun.
Yeah, the newt play the flute and the carp play the harp, but you can take photos underwater, so you’re pretty cool too.
Are you sure this is waterproof? How can I be sure?
We’re super-duper sure. We trust our friends at Aquapac, and we tested the case ourselves. If you want to be extra sure that you’re sealing everything up right and your pac is truly waterproof, test it our with a piece of paper inside in the kitchen sink before you trust it with your cam.
Okay, it’s waterproof, but how do I make sure I’m closing it up right?
Make sure that all parts are properly attached. Wipe away any grit or sand, which could hamper the seal. Always turn the levers as far as they will go. They should lock smoothly, if not there may be something impeding the seal.
What cameras does this work with?
The Aquapac fits most DSLRs. First off, your lens must be no more than 80mm in diameter, and 100mm long.
Here are the other max dimensions.
Note: Canon 1D and Canon 5D MkII/Canon 5D MkIII do NOT fit. Nikon D3 does NOT fit. Nikon D300S and D7000 are very tight fits.
Any tips on underwater photography?
Yup! 1. You’re going to want bright light. The closer to the surface and direct sunlight the better. 2. Flash is not your friend. It will bounce off all those li’l plankton and other tiny organisms floating around, and just make the water more murky. 3. To avoid dirty water mucking up your shot, get as close to your subject as possible.
