Default Options for Canon EOS Digital Rebel?

Hi, I just bought a Digital Rebel and was wondering if someone is already making an UW case for it.

Thanks

Default DRebel

I saw Ikelite's prototype last week and I believe I've heard Aquatica has one in the works. More sure to follow.

It depends how deep you go down, but for snorkeling depht with less contrast, you may get by with Ewa:

I saw the ewa case... Do you think it's safe to put a camera in those bags?? Anyone has ever used one? What about the lens quality?
Thanks

I've used a similar one with my D7 in the VI only for snorkeling... The front element is just a clear glass similar to a UV filter with no screw on it so the camera is free to float behind it. On the 990 case/bag which I also have, they include a custom foam trip to fill the void and prevent the camera from moving around.

For what they cost, they serve their purpose well. Any moisture build-up inside the bag is absorbed by the reusable silica pouch that Ewa provided (or one can buy as extra)... Theses devices are not intended for scuba diving though and their cost clearly reflect that!

Not so cheap, for a ziplock bag... I just saw them here : http://www.phomage.com/Merchant2/mer...amera+Housings
and they are quite expensive.... but in their website they say they can be used up to 150 '
:shock:
