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

Those images don't look very clear.  If the water was clear, his camera wasn't very good.

Just get a decent underwater cam like an Oly TG-5 or TG-6.  The IQ is at least as good as your sample, pretty good feature set, and no risk to your G9.  Remember: all waterproof cameras and housings can leak at some point.  A single grain of sand is enough to create space for water to enter, especially at pressure (i.e., depth).
