User Opinions

Fuji Underwater Housing for Fuji F30 & F31fd User Reviews

Rated to 40 meters
“The prior reviewer was very wrong with his “15-feet” depth-rating conclusion. Several places (including the web site) state 40 meters. Additionally, you can generally tell from the photos whether the housings are rated for snorkeling (e.g. 5-20 ft) or scuba diving (80-150 ft) by the beefiness of the seals and plastic. Pricing for the lightweight snorkeling cases are under $100, too. This housing is pretty clearly rated for scuba. It appears equivalent to the Canon underwater housings both in build and price (which I have used), but you get the added advantage of the superb low-light performance of the F30 inside!” – By PKube

Excellent housing
“I purchased this for a trip to the Carribean and used it both for underwater use (scuba and snorkeling) as well as for a protective case on the beach and for general use. It works flawlessly… The flash diffuser is also very nice and provides good coverage while removing the housing shadow that is apparent when you use the flash without the diffuser.” – By NJP (Ohio)

Nice underwater case
“This is my first underwater case and I was really blown away by the quality, especially for the price. The thing is superbly crafted and a marvel to hold, it works exactly as expected. Its made exclusively for the Fuji F30. I’ve taken a number of very nice underwater shots and videos with this case (at least in pools). I intend to take this snorkeling/diving soon enough, I think it would work out fine combined with the Fuji’s high sensitivity capabilities.” – By P. Schuyler

Great underwater housing
“I found this housing amazingly well constructed, particularly considering the very reasonable price. I had no trouble operating the controls while snorkeling. The one downside is that the viewfinder washes out in bright sunlight. So get a large memory card and take lots of pictures; some of them are bound to turn out given the F30′s high sensitivity.” – By Andreas Yankopolus

Great Housing
“I took over 500 photos with this camera while vacationing in the USVI. Great results while snorkling and diving. I went as deep as 75 ft with no problems. The built in flash difuser seems to work well. I took some great pictures down 65ft on a night dive. Focused flawlessly, adiquate lighting. Only draw back is the LCD is hard to see. I just aimed and shot and most photos were great.” – By Gary A. Wright

Fuji WP-FXF30 Underwater Housing
“Very well made unit. It has full controls for all camera functions. Double O ring seals. It seems that Fuji thought this one out well to protect their F30 and F31d cameras. It is slightly negative boyant with the camera enclosed. (It sinks) this is nice because you dont want to have to swim to the surface to retrieve it. Nothing I would change about it and I am picky about such things. “ – By M. Noonan

Good Point and Shoot Underwater Pics
“Easy to use and gives clear, colorful underwater pictures with a minimum of fuss. All camera functions are accessable in the underwater housing. Minimal lag time to photograph when exposure button has been depressed halfway and autofocused. Lag time is significant when not autofocused and when flash is recycling. Good results in wide angle and macro. I also used the underwater housing out of the water, on the beach and while sailing. I do not notice any difference in photo quality with or without the housing.” – By Barbara Bowen
Rating: ★★★★☆

well worth the money
“compared to most housings that let you go 10 ft deep this has a nice balance for both snorkling and/or scuba diving since you can go 100 ft down. Nice solid housing but weighs enough even in the ocean that it will sink immediately if you let go of it. Lube inside casing lighty as instructed as to much will get lube all over inside. Also before you go down dunk housing in water to look for leaks.” – By B. W. Sales
Rating: ★★★★☆

Great underwater housing
“Underwater photography is pretty hard. You typically have very low light levels and severe color casts. The F30/F31 are excellent cameras to start with since they handle low light well and they have a halfway decent underwater mode. That said, still be prepared for far, far fewer good shots underwater than you get on land. Video is easier and more satisfying than stills often. If you find your results frustrating with the still shots, turn on the video mode and give it a try. Focusing and tracking is hard. These compacts are all a bit slow in focusing and shutter release and fish are very fast. This makes things quite a challenge. You’ll probably want to start with pictures where both you and the subject are not moving.” – By Ken Walsh
Rating: ★★★★★

Great Accessory for a Great camera
“The functionality of the case is brilliant. The tricky part to the photography is staying steady and making sure you set the camera white balance to underwater. I find that correcting the levels on each of the red, green, blue channels of the image is still necessary to recreate correct underwater colors. Auto levels in Photoshop/Photoshop elements will get you close. I find that the camera gets really hot if you use the case out of the water but, it still takes nice pictures despite the extra glass in front of the lense. “ – By J. Norton
