underwater housings for panny cameras run from $550 to $1700 on Amazon.

That's the problem. These diving housings are as expensive or more expensive than the camera itself.

Was hoping for some simple DIY solution, so I could get shots like this guy: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/62769880

DIY solutions turn your camera into a paperweight.

I can send you several.

You might look at surf housing. I think they are cheaper than those for diving.

Will look at the surf housing. Good tip, thanks!

I use oly OMD cameras underwater, but only in dedicated and expensive housings (yes - the housings cost more than the camera, but they are worth every cent!). I would never put one of my cameras in a plastic bag and take underwater - much to dangerous...

Either look for a dedicated housing (only with vacuum check!) or go for a second camera for snorkeling, like Olympus TG-5...
