Deal Details

Last Edited by jersharocks August 5, 2016 at 12:53 PM
I was looking for a waterproof case when I stumbled on this. According to the site it's shipping from their NYC warehouse, but only limited stock, available in both black and green colors.

Looks like a pretty good deal to me and not much risk even if it doesn't work, but the reviews are pretty good although I'm skeptical. You can use paypal too!

Not much risk? I guess if you don't think water getting in and ruining your camera is a risk with these cheap cases.

Just make sure you test them without the camera inside before using it with the camera.

I believe you can still add the green/black one to your cart.

I meant risk as in for $1 even if it isn't waterproof you're not losing much. You can just use it outdoors as a case. But I agree, I would definitely test it in a pool without the camera before trying it during a trip.

Got 2, interested in trying them.

I've purchased two "official" cases, each for like $30 or something. First one the buttons fell apart. (case still works though and new buttons are metal now)

Second one i just used recently at the beach and the plastic piece that you clamp down to fasten the case cracked a little AND somehow water did end up in my case at one point, temporarily killing my camera. (Once it dried it started working again)

So yeah, definitely down to give these a try at that price since the more expensive ones aren't necessarily blowing me away.

By the time I got logged in, it was gone. Literally down to the wire. Had one in cart but sold out before I could log in and check out. Annoying.

I have had this case for a year or so now and it works well. Ive taken it Scuba diving several times (down to about 60 feet) and never had any issues.
Im buying another at this price to have a spare. Thanks for the deal!

I bought a waterproof case for mine through here and unfortunately it cracked in the middle of the snap locking mechanism. It's a small crack and still works fine but I rarely use it so it was really surprising when it cracked. Some might have better luck but just a heads up.

Nice deal. This would make a good cheap protection for the camera. Although I'd suggest not testing it under water. Out of stock but I got the original Xiaomi case already

I believe I have this case. It has so far held up pretty well even using underwater. It has even withstood and protected my camera when it was accidentally thrown on cement.
