A ziplock bag? forget it!

The Nikon AW1 does seem a bit overpriced for what it can do.

A modern day Nikonos would be great. Or I guess I can just get an old Nikonos off the bay and pay a few bucks for film.

Then there's just get a heavy duty ziplock back, partially inflating it, and using that to proof your camera.

One false move and you have an unwaterproofed underwater camera!

I tried one of those purpose built bag things; I kept having nightmares about what could so easily happen to my m43, my only camera, so I eventually sold it for practically nothing.

Another thing is flash -- there are a lot of situations underwater where you need flash.

For my own u/w use, have a Panny FT4.

Cheers, geoff
