    There are some disposable ones that are up on sale (film ones) but have limited depth. Or....you can spend more and get a digital compact and its underwater case.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    You should always do your first dive with just the casing, no camera. Then you know got leak or not.

    If you're doing snorkeling, i doubt the disposable one will meet your needs.

    btw, the disposable one goes down to 15m. How deep do you snorkle anyways?

    Well... If you're not going to go more than 3m, consider the Olympus mju 720SW... Else an IXUS with UW housing...

    15m for snorkelling is not deep enough, though some will think it's enough.
