Good points:
Took this and my Panasonic TZ5 to the Maldives recently on honeymoon and was amazed at the quality of the Underwater photos and video that was shot at 30 frames a second. Easy to set up, just a few checks before you place the camera in the case each time, check that no foreign bodies have entered the case or infiltrated the rubber 'O' ring like fluff and stuff. Rinse and regrease the 'O' ring seal each time place a silica gel satchet into slot of the housing (5 supplied with housing, though I made them last 12 days) shut the case and Test (submerge) Remember to follow the Manual regarding rinsing the housing so that no salt water crystals form on the seal and the buttons by operating all the buttons and levers in fresh water after a dive. I experianced condensation inside the camera twice, only because I let the casing get heated by the sun and outside temperature. I found cooling the case and camera via the Air conditioning unit in my room prior to a dive or even snorkerling, climatized it to the water temp. Use your brains a little here guys and girls you want the temp inside the case to be similar to the outside water temp.
Bad points:
I am being picky here but will mention...........
Beware Clear Plastic like this easily scratches! I noticed one or two hairline scratches on the rear of the device at the viewfinder window even though I was very careful. Treat the case like your best pair of spectacles if you wear any that is.
