A Guide to Underwater Camera Cases
If you are buying a new underwater camera or video camera, you will need an underwater camera case. And this case needs to be watertight, airtight, dustproof, crush resistant and designed to keep your valuable equipment safe from all the elements. It may also be rustproof, pest-proof, and chemical resistant to oils, fuels and solvents. It may have flame retardant included and be molded with a UV stabilizer, making it ultraviolet resistant. (This will prevent the plastic from becoming brittle if left in the sun for extended periods of time.)
Some of the best cases are subjected to a 24 hour submersion tests, manufactured to exceed of 400 lbs of stacking, and a drop test at 48 inches.
Some have a ""pressure release purge valve"" that guarantees a perfect seal by incorporating its own O-Ring under one of the latches. And you will never forget to set the valve since it automatically activates when closing the case. Pressure is released as you open the latch.
Removable Accuform foam may be included with your underwater camera case. This is vertically pre-scored, high-density foam that is easily formed to provide a snug fit to protect your equipment from the abuse of your toughest adventure.
