    Anyone have experience in this?? I have a shoot coming up and we really want to do underwater shots....
    The waterproof housing has a huge range of pricing. I'm cheap.... soooo looking at lower end but obviously a little worried....

    ^+1

    I can't see how you will ever be able to adjust any functions, while the camera is in the bag...

    Maybe you can try to rent an underwater camera?

    I've seen better ones for like... about $120.

    Not bad, as opposed to buying a whole 'nother camera.

    or you could get the sea&sea ones. I think for my d200 it was about 2500 dollars. Its not smart to put such an expensive camera in such a cheap bag.. i wouldnt trust it.

    Yeah I've changed my mind and I'm going to just use a point and shoot for the under water shots. I just can't risk it.

    My sister, and my girlfriend both now shoot with the new Olympus underwater cameras. They work very well considering they are cheap point and shoots in a crap environment.
