The family tends to spend a reasonable amount of time in the water and I picked up a Waterproof camera case a couple years ago, thought I would share it as it is good for things other than use under water.

This is a great case for use at a beach, picnic, poolside or anyplace where there is the possibility of getting the camera EITHER wet OR dirty. I can't remember the cost, but it is designed by Canon and sold to fit their "S" series pocket cameras. I'm sure it is no longer sold, but I'd also bet that it has been replaced by another model. I've seen similar cases for other brands, so if you ever go places where you want to take photos but are afraid you will ruin your camera, you may want to consider a waterproof case.

For anyone interested in the specifics, this case is designed to be waterproof down to depths of 140' and I admit that I only take it to snorkel depths so it has not been below 10' or 12' feet of water. It also floats so if you drop it, it will rise to the surface.

Every control can be easily operated underwater EXCEPT the right side latch, which probably could be opened underwater but is actually difficult to manipulate (probably a good thing):rolleyes:
