Complete instructions are provided for you to test that the housing is watertight each and every time you use it. The Polaroid camera accessories company is as interested in protecting your camera as much as you are. That’s why there are two large water seals come together and are kept in contact by three housing clamps holding the front and back closed. To better control the camera during underwater use, it is recommended that this waterproof housing be attached to a dual-handle stabilizer mount available from your Polaroid camera accessories dealer.

Still haven’t taken this in deep water yet, but I want to clear up a few details for folks who are considering purchasing this case:
1) It’s a bargain. it’s $1000 cheaper than the next closest thing your going to get.
2) ALL functions are NOT available with this case. There is no way to use the front roller button to change settings that require that (which is anything manual, or any changes in Av or Tv mode). The instructions make it clear, you are to preset your settings before inserting the camera in the case.
3) flash works very well. those 2 ports on the front focus the flash nicely. there is a button on the left side of the case that pops the built in flash. They look like they are really designed to support an off camera flash via an optical cable.

4) there is a cold shoe mount, designed to provide a mount point for an external flash. finding a ‘cheap’ underwater flash with an optical slave would be nice.
5) there are holes on the bottom to mount this on a grip/flash mount, so I would consider this case to be very expandable, from an accessories standpoint.
I’ve shot a few test pics in the hot tub. I had to use a 50F1.8 (nifty fifty) lens, as it was the only one I had at the time that would fit in the case. I’ve borrowed the ‘kit’ zoom lens for my trip to cancun, and look forward to sharing images I’ve taken with this housing to the review in january.
Update: This product performed flawlessly on my trip! I also purchased a fantasea external flash, and was able to get it to work easily with an optical cable. The flash ports on the front of this case were the same size as the ones on the external flash, so it was trivial to connect them together.
although our trip ended up being re-routed to St Thomas, we still got several days of snorkeling in. Comparing the results of the T2i vs the canon underwater point n shoot, as well as a pentax underwater point n shoot camera is night and day. The DSLR image and higher quality (and larger) lens gives so much better quality to the final image!
the instruction guide is a little cryptic, at first, but it means exactly what it says. If you’ve never used an underwater housing before, keeping the seals and buttons cleans requires that you invest some time in ensuring you rinse and work out any sand/dirt/grit that finds it’s way into those nooks and crannys, and will cause you to either have a leak in the seal, or the buttons and knobs not to function smoothly. A good soaking in fresh water after you’ve had it in a harsh environment is a must to ensure things work well.
