Who Needs An Underwater Camera Case

You don't need to be a professional photographer to own a nice camera and want to keep it operating purposefully. Anyone who intends to experience time in the water can benefit from an underwater housing system. An underwater housing is a camera case for your favorite topside camera, but has more advanced benefits than one might consider; It allows full control of the camera when diving and is waterproof to 10 meters / 33 feet. It doesn't matter if you are a Nikon, Sony, Canon, or an Olympus user. Additionally, whether you are a DSLR user or a Mirrorless camera, you will benefit from using the right underwater camera case.

Shopping for an Underwater Camera Case - What to look for:

When on the hunt for the best waterproof housing system for your favorite adventure-enduring camera, you'll want to keep a checklist of these essential features that will ultimately contribute to a successful purchase. Underwater images are unique and beautiful - And they are all that more striking when taken by ourselves or someone we love. Key features such as reputability and durability are two apparent must-haves. Here are the most important factors to keep in mind when considering your purchase:

  • 1. Universal Compatibility
    One of the best parts of vacationing is being with friends and family. Unexpectedly there may come a time where you forget to charge your camera and have to use someone else's on your daily underwater excursion. But you can't do that if your housing system doesn't work with all brands! Thus, it is crucial to purchase a waterproof camera case that is truly universal. This way, the lenses and accessories, viewfinders, and covers are compatible with all brands, makes, and models of cameras and lenses. So if your best friend has a Panasonic, Lumix, Canon, or Nikon camera and it differs from the brand you use - you can still use the same universal underwater camera case and will be fully operational without issue. Problem solved!

  • 2. Visual/Optical Performance
    Find a product that won't just protect your case, but will also enhance the quality of the images you are taking. We recommend a case that comes equipped with a Dome glass lens. Do yourself a favor and skip the plastic or acrylic lenses and go for glass. Dome glass lenses optimize refraction and focal point distancing. They manage virtual image attributes in the water, improving clarity, and facilitating focus for split level photography both above & below water level. This means you can have a real photo op in the water without taking time to adjust between outer-water and inner-water shots.

  • 3. Portability/Transportability
    Don't put extra weight on your shoulders - pick a system that is light and travel friendly.

    One of the worst feelings is having too much to carry when traveling. When picking the perfect waterproof camera housing case are unmalleable, bulky, and take up a lot of room in your pack. Bulky cases are uncomfortable to hold while taking pictures, and often become more of an inconvenience to use than anything else.

  • 4. Multi-Purpose
    Most importantly, we suggest you find a case that is used and highly recommended by professional photographers. This means you should be looking to buy a high-quality and durable case that works for you, not against you. If you happen to be a professional photographer or enjoy photography as a hobby, you're likely running with something that has cost you a substantial amount of money and delivers perfect images. If this is your situation, you need a well-built case to support all necessary functions and produce the same quality shots while immersed in the water. In 100% of situations, you'll want something that feels as ergonomic as using your camera without a case.
