Underwater Casing

I'm looking for an Underwater Casing for the GL2 that costs under 300 dollars.

A little help?

What kind of UW work are you looking to do?

Be VERY careful with cheap "water protection" for your camera. Remember that you are trying to protect an investment. The last thing you want is to trash your camera while trying to save a few bucks.

http://www.ewa-marine.de/english/index.htm has a soft housing that is very reliable for about $400.00. This works very well for surf/shallow water work. Rated to approximately 30 ft.

Rigid or deepwater housings are all going to be pretty expensive. Sometimes as much as or more than the camera itself.

We have them for our XL-1s and TRV-950 cameras.

Yeah, I'm not looking for anything incredible...I can't see me going any more than 10 feet. 400 is reasonable, I may have to hold out till next summer.
