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 out 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/Canon 5D MkIIII do NOT fit. Canon 7D Mk II does NOT fit. Nikon D3 does NOT fit. Nikon D300S and D7000 are very tight fits. Be sure to measure your camera before using. Do NOT use the Aquapac if your camera measures outside of the max dimensions: Camera body width 5.75", Camera body height 7.8", Length of Lens 4", Height of lens 3.2". We haven't measured all cameras, so be sure to measure yours!
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.
Before Every Use:Seal a piece of paper or paper towel inside, then submerge in a basin of room temperature water to check the waterproofness.
Closing the Case: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.
Opening the Case:Never open your Aquapac in or under water. In order to stop any water getting in when you are opening it, first shake off any water then dry with a towel. Hold the case with the opening at the bottom as you open it.
Ongoing Care:Our materials are strong but can still be punctured. Avoid sharp or abrasive objects and protect from impacts. After regular contact with chlorinated or salt water, or with sun creams, wash in soapy water and then rinse with fresh water. Do not use bleach, alcohol or other cleaners.
Humidity and Condensation:In humid climates there will be moisture in the air sealed inside the case. Desiccant sachets will absorb the moisture, keeping the contents completely dry. We recommend use of desiccant sachets in all Aquapacs in humid climates. You can purchase spare sachets from Aquapac directly.
