    i dun think u will want to run the risk of getting ur cam wet & irrepairable if u had used a cheapo UW casing rite?

    Why wouldn't anyone just buy a disposable underwater camera? I mean, that's like $20...what if the underwater casing was faulty and your camera gets spoiled?!!

    Agree on this point......unless u are into underwater photography or take pictures under water frequently ( like swimming pool ?? ) then i think u can seriouly think abt buying one.

    However if u on a holiday trip to say Redang or some diving tours, I think the recommendation by daphz is the perfect choice. Get a disposible underwater camera!!!

    look at underwater photography section and u will see the need of underwater casing. More for divers. So b4 u buy one, learn to dive 1st as you need license for it. But if u dont wish to learn the only chance to shoot underwater creatures are low tides. hmm then more likely a ziplog bag is sufficient heehee anyway this kind of photography, i havent try yet so not sure.. but soon i will if the tidal time is right
