    What sort of depth are you hoping to get to?

    well, however deep the landfill is... or I might send it to one of those drives for old cameras for proper disposal.

    Sounds like you just need a bigger ziploc.

    Are all underwater cameras just regulars but with housings, or do they actually make waterproof digital cameras without housings?

    There are a few truly waterproof cameras. Olympus makes one that is actually waterproof... no housing needed... down to 33' (their rating), but I've read reports of taking down to 70' no problem, although the buttons start sticking. They make a real housing for it as well so you can take it deep without fear, if you want... nice because it wouldn't be hurt by floods, either.

    Amazon.com: Olympus Stylus 1030SW 10.1MP Digital Camera with 3.6x Optical Wide Angle Zoom (Black): Electronics

    Unfortunately, reports of the picture quality have been less than 100% enthusiastic. Not terrible, but not great.

    Old film Nikonos cameras were waterproof as well.

    There are a number of cheap cameras that are good to about 10' as well, sold as good for kayaking and snorkeling.

    But most cameras, if you want really good pictures, and to take them deep, need a hard housing.

    I've tried to keep items dry on my motorcycle using ziplock bags inside my backpack. No luck so far.
