Default all weather case for Nikon 950??

I was hoping someone would know if a weatherproof case could be used for the Nikon 950. I haven't seen anything on the Nikon site. Even if I used another brand and couldn't swivel the lens I would accept that. Or maybe a home made suggestion?
TIA

I know there are a few manufacturers of diving shells for the 950. I don't know if you mean those as being 'weatherproof case'. I think Ikelite (sp?) makes one and so does Iewa(sp?) Marine. Search the archives for 'diving' or 'dive'.

Try our Underwater Digital forum, it's farther down the list. And check with our friends over at www.wetpixel.com

There it was the Ikelite. It was made for my camera but unfortunately it cost twice what my camera cost me. It was so hard to X out of that page. It would be nice but I'm afraid I'm not in that price range. Drool. Drool.
I was thinking of more like a rain storm not deep sea diving. Maybe a top of the line zip lock bag???
Thanks for the info.

The Pelican Inclement Weather Camera Protector may be a good option

Check EWA, theses "zip-lock" are only for snorkeling, but much more economical: 8)

Aquapac http://www.aquapac.net/ is another company that makes soft waterproof cases for cameras (and cellphones, PDAs, camcorders, etc.).

Those suggestions look more like my speed.
I am pricing the ewa-marine cover. Thanks for the picture NHL. Better than a 1000 words. Also thanks to Mike_Peat.
Very good sites.
