If you’ve done research into underwater housing (and their cost), you’ll know how expensive they can be. In some instances, they cost more than the camera. Certainly, when you pay the premium price you’re also purchasing assurance, functionality, size, etc. However, rebel that I am, I didn’t want to pay the premium, so I built my own. They make cheaper underwater bags which I’ve used before, but the reason that didn’t meet my needs is I specifically wanted a big-dome port. Since they don’t sell those in any version except expensive housing cases, I knew my only option was to DIM (Do It Myself).
This post shows you how I built it, and some sample images that have since come from it on two different shoots. I’ve been quite pleased considering it cost me less that $50 and has had no issues with water leaks.
