Waterproof housings for cameras come in all shapes and sizes from hard cases to PVC bags. Here is a selection of seafaring housings from aqua-friendly photography stockist, Cameras Underwater

EWA-MARINE S D-B UNDERWATER HOUSING:

Hold the hard plastic casing, because ewa-marine has created a new range of underwater baggies to protect your camera. The housing is suited towards any SLR or CSC, so you donhave to have a Nikon D80 like Annette to achieve super underwater shots. The plunge depth is 30m, meaning the casing will keep your camera watertight in watery conditions from splashing surf to deep dives. The camera shoots through optical glass with pin sharp images. Therealso a quirky finger ’feature that enables users to access the camerashutter button easily.

EWA-MARINE S U-A:

Like its sister the D-B, ewa-marineU-A is all about protection and functionality underwater. The PVC housing allows for easy button accessibility and a handy area to house the pop-up flash. Designed specifically for small bodied SLRs, the U-A can dive to a depth of 20m, perfect for canoeing, diving or snorkelling. The double layered PVC also includes a flat glass port that is said to be non-intrusive where the focus and the flash are concerned, as well as seawater resistant clamping rails at the top of the bag to seal the deal. An optional BF1 lead weight can be added to achieve a deeper dive so you can focus on your pictures.

IKELITE S CANON EOS 600D DIGITAL REBEL T3I:

Though it looks a little alien, Annette uses an Ikelite housing which works to provide all the gadgetry needed for taking shots beneath the waves. Allowing for a depth of up to 60m the housing is suitable for diving, snorkelling or any other manner of water sports as well as aqua portraiture. The camera sits on two rubber-grip handles to help you keep your camera still when close to your subject. The zoom and video recording can also be reached by large handles, making it easy to operate on the go. The hardy casing is kept water tight with its Ikelite pioneered Quad-Ring seal glands.
