In-use Test:

Unfortunately we noticed a little late that we'd been sent for test an Outboard Camera Case designed for compact cameras without a telescopic zoom lens. Not having a suitable dedicated camera available - we tested the case with an iphone.

It was easy to get the iphone into the case. The case closes easily and it's possible to hear the locking mechanism click securely into place. I found it a little more awkward to open again - but that's probably not a bad thing as it's unlikely you'd open the case by mistake. Once in, there was no problem operating the touch-screen through the plastic. The quality of the photos taken with the iphone in the case seemed unaffected by the plastic.

Being a cautious type! I tested the waterproofness of the camera case with something other than my iphone - and can report that the case definitely keeps the water out so I'm certainly confident to use it for my phone, memory stick etc.

As it's certainly waterproof, I imagine it's also useful as a means of keeping out sand, dirt etc. - so can operate as a more general protective container.

Buying Advice:

This basic version of Outboard's Camera Case is a good way to protect your compact camera or a memory stick. Unless you're using the camera on an iphone or other smartphone though, you will need to take out the camera to actually take a photo.

Still - walking in the rain is inevitable and if you'd had a great day's walk, maybe 'bagging' 4 or 5 Wainwrights and on the way back to the car the heavens opened, it would be very reassuring to know that your camera and/or the memory stick storing your precious photos was protected.
