Underwater housing for vx2100??

Ok guys im trying to locate an underwater housing for my vx2100. I check B&H and all they have are housing that are good up to 200' I dont need it to be that deep at all. Its basically going to be out of the water or resting on top ofthe water and i just want a housing for peace of mind. The actor will be thrashing around violently and I dont want to risk my camera getting wet. Any ideas on what to do with this?

You probably already saw them at B&H but the only thing I can think of is the Ewa-Marine housings that are good to 33 feet, but they're still $450-$500.

i have 2 UW housings that I use for snorkeling. They are constructed with a heavy flexible plastic housing, and a glass front.

My vx2000 fits into it snugly -- but its hard to operate the controls once its in there. I pretty much turn it on and leave it until the tape rolls out -- or I finish with my dive.

I just got an XHA1 -- (and will likely be selling the vx2000) if you're interested, I would be willing to sell one of these housings.

I think they're rated for about 30' -- but I'll have to check. I've never gone lower than about 15-20' with them -- and only for short periods. (i'd be able to get you more info on them if you're interested).
