How have you improved this case recently?

2008 sees us going '100% PVC-Free'. Our new material (TPU) offers a number of advantages:

  • It's softer and more malleable. Making it even easier to operate your PDA or Smartphone controls through the material.
  • It'll perform much better if you want to take it somewhere really cold. It'll still be soft and malleable at -40º and below.
  • It has a greater tensile strength, meaning it's even more difficult to tear or rip apart.
  • We've added optically-clear LENZFLEX windows to the back making the Aquapac cameraphone-friendly.the lens

Overview:

Now that you've got this expensive SLR camera you of course want to just seize every opportunity to use it whether on land or underwater to take those photos of the moments and sights you want to cherish. There is that one problem though - water, sand and dirt always seem to get in the way in the great outdoors. These elements do not do well with any equipment and your expensive SLR is certainly no exception.

Tips from a Pro:

To Disperse Water Droplets on the Lens: Most Pros use Rain-X. The guys in Maui use half an onion and rub it on the lens. But my personal favourite is to use waterproof sunscreen - the higher the factor the better. When you dip the lens just lift it clear of the water and blow the droplets off.

Opening/Closing: Never EVER open the case with wet hands. Only ever insert/remove the camera with the case completely upside down, with the opening at the bottom.

Taking shots: Rather than shooting in normal style of looking at what you see through the view finder, start shooting at what you are pointing the camera at you will get the hang of it. Feel free to look at the images on my site under kite-surfing and see the results we get.

What our customers say:

"My daughter was very pleased with the SLR case. I was very impressed with the service and efficient manner my order was handled. The lady who took my order was extremely pleasant and helpful."

Richard Clark, UK


What the Press say:

"I pre-tested the Aquapac SLR at home by inserting some paper in the bag, closing it and submerging the bag in the kitchen sink. No leaks. Still, I was nervous when I tried out the Aquapac with my own Prosumer Fujifilm camera in that Puerto Rican cove. But everything came out of the drink fine -- the camera and the photos."

Howard Wolinsky, Chicago Sun-Times
