Dear fellow CSer,

It really depends on how waterproof you need the camera to be.

If you want to go deeper for diving you will have to buy the dedicated underwater housings for a specific cam.
As for DSLR, good underwater housings for diving will run into the thousands with different attachments for different lenses. It will definitely cost more than your D90. It really depends on how you find the pricing justifiable.
