Rated 3 out of 5 by Heywood Top of the water only, not for SCUBA diving
I purchased the float at the end of July for a trip to Fiji. This was to include both snorkeling and SCUBA diving. The specifications on the Sony store don't include maximum depth information, but I ordered it anyway. The included manual (which I just located on the Sony support site, not the store site) lists the maximum depth at no more than 3 M, and I would concur. On my first dive to approximately 20 M, the float developed an invisible crack along the seam, and partially filled with water. On my second dive while exiting the boat in heavy swells, my lanyard became disconnected, the float was too heavy with water, and both it and the camera sunk. We weren't able to locate it.
So while it works great for things on the top of the water, I do not in any way recommend it for SCUBA. Just make sure the camera is well lashed to your dive kit if you go under the sea. It would be nice if Sony made a float that worked to the maximum depth of the included waterproof case.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SPC7 Will fit only certain accessories
I have been looking forward to this product. It would be great with the VCT-GM1 to go water skiing/tubing but, it does not fit. I am disappointed because it looks like it should be an easy fix.
