Hey guys Camera Geek here from AccessoryGeeks.com showing you a little review on DiCaPac cases, specifically the ones that will fit the iPhone and the one that will fit SLRs. DiCaPac makes a range of waterproof cases for iPhones, iPods, SLRs, high-end compact cameras and compact cameras.
This is not my iPhone, so I already feel really nervous about submerging it underwater. The camera that I am recording on is my camera. I am super afraid of putting it underwater
The iPhone actually is still usable through the case, the screen itself is capacitive. So if you did put the iPhone in the case, like this, you still have access to the buttons. It’s a little bit more difficult, granted because the plastic is pretty thick. Both the iPhone and SLR case come with some type of holding aparatus. The iPhone one comes with two lanyards and the SLR one comes with a neck strap which clips on. Both of them will allow your electronic device to float, so you won’t have to worry about it sinking to the bottom of the ocean if you do drop it. That being said, you should just use the lanyard.
So what I’m first going to show you is how to put the iPhone one on. I’m not sure how I would show you how to put the SLR one on, when my SLR is being used right now. The process is basically the same. Take your iPhone, or whatever device you may have. As you can see, the DiCaPac opens at the top. Stick the iPhone in there, get out all the air, and then squeeze her up, fold it all the way up and close it. Now it is waterproof. You don’t have to worry about getting your phone wet or your camera wet, DiCaPac offers insurance for up to $10,000. That still does not make me any less nervous to put my camera underwater. But I will do a little jump cut, adjust the focus and we will put my camera under the only source of water around here, which is a sink. I will also put this underwater, so you can see exactly what it looks like when it’s submerged and that there is no water on the inside.
Gosh, you don’t know how nervous I am right now because of all of that, but my camera is still recording, and let me take the iPhone out. So, this iPhone case works great with the iPhone 4S, probably will work great with iPod Touches and iPhone 3GSs. iPhone 4S, though, works perfect.
The SLR one, my camera is a Canon T3i, and it’s a pretty small camera. This can fit cameras up to about 7 inches in but, it will fit any camera with a removable lens, but since everyone’s camera is different, it may work better with bigger cameras. I had a little bit of a difficult time getting to some of the camera controls. I had to do some weird squeezing, and as you could see, I did get the ring in the footage. If you were to use one of these, I would say use a fixed focal length lens, so all you have to worry about is focusing.
