I bought this underwater casing for my Canon 5D mark 11 in July of this year to push my skill set (and apparently to push my fear level as well because I'm the shitest swimmer alive!). I was nudged to check this brand and style out by a friend and it falls in the middle of the road for pricing, so not cheap and not a "million dollar bills ya'll" either.
This past week was the first time I got to really test drive it in Mexico (the pool only as the ocean was rough and full of coral, I can't even imagine what a gong show that would have turned into if I even attempted it)
The learning curve is so/so, if I wasn't so fucking awkward in the water It may have gone smoother or if I wasn't so concerned about looking like a raccoon (because I had my eyebrows on and my mascara on and my eyeliner on. People don't judge, when your over 40 and you plucked the shit out of your eyebrows in the 90's because thin eyebrows were the style you would understand! it's a fucking slippery slope, you can't have eyebrows on and not have your eye's on...it just doesn't work!). Anyways, I slapped on some goggles, which also are awkward and make you look redic but it's all for a good shot right?! Luckily the pool was not over my head or else I would have had to use a snorkel and my make shift buoyancy belt made from a water noodle and an old strap from a bag (total MacGyver move) - hahahah, that would have been a sight!
I'm glad I finally got to break it in and the results are interesting. Well kids always make everything more interesting in my opinion. I love the "different world look" the underwater images have, there's a a first for everything and I'm pretty sure there will be a second! If I drown in the next year you know what happened!
Here's the underwater gear company link (Outex) btw-
A real vision! Here's my underwater selfie, lol! In looking at this image now I'm pretty sure I had my goggles on upside down. That would explain how uncomfortable they were.
