I ended up using the plastic cover/casing that you get when you buy a $20 comforter at walmart, with holes cut out for the lense and camera strap. I also using the lid off a jam jar to seal the hole around the lense, to make sure no water would get in. In all, it looked pretty fancy and worked for what I needed if for. The quality of the footage came out pretty well and I am now editing it for the Documentary that I'm putting out on DVD in September. I will post some pics of my "water cover" when I can. Hopefully I'll be able to post some of the Documentary as well. It was a wonderful experience to have and made for some pretty interesting shots. The biggest bonus was not getting sick.
Hello Justin, Would love to see your water cover. please share how you have made this piece. I will be shooting in a beach so really looking for anything that would protect my GL2. thank in advance
