You can take great photographs right through the Hard Lens built onto the case (see below). Even underwater. PLEASE NOTE: The hard lens is permanently attached to the case and cannot be removed. The Hard Lens Camera Case (code 420) is compatible with most compact digital cameras. It'll float with your camera in it. It's guaranteed submersible to 15 feet (5 metres). The UV-stabilized TPU material won't be broken down or discoloured by sunlight. It keeps out dust and sand too. They're a particular problem for cameras (just ask the repairman at your local camera store).
