    I my search foo sucks so couldn't find much. I am going on a canoe trip next summer and don't have a lot of money so am starting my research now. I would like to take my D40 with me. However, I am not sure what to do waterproofing or how I could protect my camera while in the canoe, might just keep it in bag. I want to take it because it is not often I get in a situation to take potentially awesome pictures.

    What are some things I can do for safe guarding my camera?

    If it doesn't need to be waterproofed while taking pictures (you want it cased in case you dump the canoe, but will be taking pictures on shore) consider an otterbox or pelican case. Cheaper than a housing for sure, but only useful for storage. Also not terribly cheap, a good sized one that will contain your accessories also will run you near $100 more than likely(Pelican 1450 should do it). If you just want your camera, kit lens, and a couple batteries and memory cards (measure your camera or put it in a box, but I think a 1300 would do it) that will run you around $50.
