Went and had a look at b&h like robar said:

Would you feel safe using a bag like this? The benefit is its only $300 compared to the $2000 odd for a housing and you can use a shoe mounted flash.

Ive read a few reviews it seems alright for its purpose -



Apparently they are often made fun of though, a $300 zip lock bag etc.. :-)



I think it would be fine for what im going to be using it and it comes in under budget

Probably, $275 of the asking price goes for product liability insurance.

These EWA "bags" are really extremely overpriced and difficult to use, imho. The camera inside has to line up with the glass port, and it always moves around. Plus getting your (wet) hand in & out of the "glove" part is a real pain - you will never take a "quick shot". Also, the vinyl plastic will split, usually along the seam close to the closure plates, rendering it useless.

If you want to do real U/W photography, you will need a dome port, or else the flat glass will render your wideangle useless due to refraction btwn air/water. It's all about wide angle in U/W!
