I just moved to the coast with my wife and daughter, and I try to never miss a photo opportunity with my family. I was a bit wary, though, of taking my camera to the beach. If you don't drop it in the water, you still got to worry about saltwater residue on your hands, sand being blown around, or someone knocking onto the ground or kicking sand on it, even if it's in the case, it's pretty dangerous. So I looked around for waterproof cases. Two weeks into researching it, I found this. I can even take this underwater if I wanted to (up to 15 ft)! It's easy to use, and has enough room for my Canon S3 IS and telescopic lens. Air trapped inside the bag with the camera keeps it floatable if you wanted to take it aboard a boat. I was a little wary about the lens window, but it takes great pictures with no noticeable distortion. This waterproof bag is a great investment for your camera!
