Get a proper housing from Oly.

They are not that expensive.

What do you mean "not that expensive?" The Olympus housing is $950, plus you need to buy a port separately for $400. Nauticam is $1350. A proper housing is least $100 more expensive that the bag + a new E-M5 with the 12-50 lens, and the difference will be probably even greater by the time the camera breaks (if ever).

And if the bag leaks, I would actually expect that the leak will be sufficiently slow, that with weather resistant feature I would be able to take it out before water gets to the electronics.


Well, he's obviously quite rich. His "unsolicited-poor-advice-service" is doing quite well.

As for the OP's dicap bag, glad to hear Oly's WS saved you from an unfortunate lapse in equipment attention to detail.
