Water Proof Case/Bag for DSLR
 
What is everyone using for a waterproof case to shoot with, (on a jet ski, tube, whatever) that isn't the 1k+ cases? Im looking for a somewhat cheap way to waterproof my Canon T2i. Started searching on ebay, but not too sure what I'm looking for yet.
Thanks in advance.

This is the one I got for my T1i. It works really well. It is a bit bulky to work with but we got some great pictures. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...roof_Case.html

I ended up finding one on Ebay for alot less then B&H.

I did look at this one, is it still fairly easy to use all the functions of the camera if you need to change settings or something like that?

Its pretty easy to use. I tested in the pool at home first. The one thing is that it has bouyancy so it want's to float. Your fingers can get to the shutter and focus ring. You need to set it on auto for pic taking - its not so easy to try and do that underwater.

I like to hear its buoyant, incase I fall off a tube or something haha. Thanks for the info!

Absolutely - I was paranoid about that. I made sure that the strap was around my neck as soon as I moved from a sitting to a standing position and then all during my water time.

That's the same housing I use as well and the shots turn out great. For the price it is awesome.
