Finally, I've tracked down an acceptable underwater housing for my Minolta G400. It's a DiCAPac WP-400 (from Digital Rev's eBay shop @ ?21.99 shipped to the UK). The WP-400 is basically a sealed heavy-duty plastic bag with a port for the lens. It's sealed with a zip-loc closure, which is then rolled over several times and held shut with velcro. The manufacturer lists a number of cameras it's claimed to be compatible with, but neither the WP-400 (or any other of their other sizes) lists the G400, so I took a bit of a guess. The camera fits in it OK, but the case design has the lens port slightly off centre, whereas the camera has a more-or-less centred lens. At wide angles the port can cause vignetting if the camera isn't in exactly the right place, but it's manageable. The main advantage of the EWA-Marine case is that the lens is enclosed in the port, so that when using the flash, there's less risk of it reflecting off the inside of the case and causing unwanted artefacts in the photo. (The EWA-Marine case basically has a sheet of acryllic across the entire front of the case - so there's no isolation between the flash and lens.) My next project is to work out how to trigger an external flash (I don't think I can get an optical cell and Skyport in the DiCAPac case as well) and build a case for one of my Nikon Speedlights.

Wow, scuba diving sure is a sexy sport :P I borrowed an underwater camera for this dive. It's tricky managing buoyancy and taking pictures without flash (the built in one was too crappy and we didn't have access to an external) during your very first week of diving...

How To Make Low Cost Underwater Camera Housings & Bags
Hello Everybody.
Thanks for taking the time to read my ad.
I make and sell a very popular underwater video camera housing I designed called the Nemo 200. The Nemo is ideal for recreational scuba divers that need to take video cameras below to 120 feet and be used in a tough marine environment.
In the last few years I have been repeatedly asked if I could come up with a much smaller and cheaper design for those people that are not scuba divers but merely wanted to protect their cameras and video cameras while they were surfing or fishing or snorkeling. A lot of charter boat captains want a housing to video their fish as they are brought to the boat and kite boarders and surfers and kayak owners wanted something cheap that would work with their cameras.
Over the last two years I have come up with three designs that can be made to fit nearly any small to medium sized camera or video camera. These designs can all be made for less than $15-$20 and should not take much more than an hour or two and they have all been tested to at least 12 feet with no problems.
Each design uses off the shelf items. If the housing or bag design shown in the video is too small for your camera all three designs can be made larger by using a larger container or bag which is readily available. The designs are quite simple and once you watch the construction you will see they make a lot of sense. However, some of the assembly methods used were not simple to come up with and took a lot of time to discover on my own. I think you will save a lot of time watching my video, and if you decide to build your own camera housing you will be very happy you did.
Some of the most fun times of my life have been out on the water. I am guessing you feel the same way. Cameras hate water. Here are three ways to get your camera to like the water and to bring home a lot of great memories on film and video.
My Three Housing designs
The Snorkelbox design has a manual control so you can turn your video camera on and off while it is inside the housing.
The Nemo Jr
The Nemo Jr is a waterproof bag with a lens that will fit many small to medium sized digital cameras and goes to 12 feet. Costs less than $15 to make and the size can be adjusted by using different sized bags. The Brownie
The Brownie is probably the world's easiest and least expensive video camera housing to make. The containers come in many sizes. This design has gone repeatedly to 12 feet and never gave me any problems. I added a small mirror to the outside to help the user see what they are filming by the reflections from their open lcd screeen on the side. There is a nice handle on the other side to help you steady the camera while filming.
If you do make one of my designs and film some video or photos and upload them to the Internet please send me the links and I will add them to my customer photo gallery on my home page.
Please take a moment to watch my youtube video . You can see my designs more clearly plus see some video one of my customers took of Whale sharks while snorkeling and taking video with his home made Snorkelbox.
Thanks again,
Robb Moffett
