Just add water.......
on 31 October 2013
Initial thoughts were that the case seems compact and robust. A nice looking clear polycarbonate sort of casing with what appears to be an optical glass front port. Not too heavy either.
A silicon type rubber material forms the seal when the door is closed.
The locking mechanisn has had some negative comments - but from what I can see it seems to do the job well. I have no reason to think it will break.
Another comment I have read about this item refers to ensuring it is switched on before it goes into the case. OK, there is no way of sliding the on/off switch when it is in the case, so it does need to be turned on. But remember this unit will sit on standby for what, 250 hours? Turn it on, the blue light comes on - put it in the case, close the back and let the blue light go out. By pressing the button on top the blue light will show again, press it again and it goes into record and the green light comes on. Press it again and it stops recording, blue light comes on and then will revert back to standby. Turning it on before you put it in the case is not a problem - remember, it has a very long standby time when turned on and can be recording again from stanby without opening the case up.
It states on the packaging it is waterproof to 20 metres.
Bought this case for £14 or thereabouts - a good very buy for the Muvi.
A little off subject now I know, but a little info on the MD-80, a very similar bit of kit to the Muvi camera...For those picking up the very similarly sized MD-80 video camera, this case is too small. The size differences in the Muvi and the MD-80, however small, makes this unsuitable for the MD-80, although with some alteration it MIGHT take it).
