Hey guys. I'd like to bring my 5D on a boat out in Salt water. I don't want the spray on my lenses or body. Waterproof housing is 1,500. Do i have any other alternatives?

How big is the boat ? Obviously on a large ship/boat, nothing is required except a strap to prevent you from dropping it overboard. If it is a smaller speedboat or inflatable, then copping sea spray is much more of a reality.

What lenses are you using ?

An option is a "bag" type waterproof enclosure - something like a DicaPac enclosure can be had for less than $100.

Never tried one on a 5D series - the largest I have had in one was a 70D + EF 24-105L when I was snorkeling in Thailand.

There are pretty clumsy to use but they do offer reasonable protection at a budget price - obviously not for diving though.
