Waterproof Camera & Smartphone Bags

April 15, 2014


If you are like me and like taking pictures in all kinds of weather then it is essential to have waterproof cases for your camera and smartphone. They come in all sorts of sizes and so fit anything, even DSLR with lenses. These can be bought at cameras shops in Bangkok and elsewhere. These two products were bought at Digital 2 Home (just google their name to find out more). I have seen their shops at Paradise Park and Fortune Town.


This smartphone case costs 690 Baht and is ideal for taking pictures during Songkran or at the beach. I know it sounds a lot but so is your smartphone. Is it really wise to put a 20,000+ Baht smartphone into a waterproof case bought at 7-Eleven for 20 Baht? Anyway, with those cheap cases you get what you pay for. I have had two split on me. Once I had got off a boat and had just waded ashore when I noticed that my iPhone was hanging out. The pouch had split and I was really lucky my phone hadn’t fallen into the sea. Lesson learned.

        Thanks for the info. That seems to be very cheap as it is currently going anywhere between $65-$100 in the States. So $50 is a bargain. I’ll be on the lookout to get one this week for my NEX. I’m thinking S3, S5, or H10.
