    Using regular camera for diving

    Hi, any ideas how I can use my regular camera underwater, such as a ziplock bag? And any way I can attach it to myself so it won't fall?

    Don't bother with the ziplock bag, just use liberal amounts of Saran Wrap. Should be good to at least 130'.

    Magnets. Liberal use of magnets should work well.

    Or a cotton sock would also work just as well

    Do you put the camera in the sock then in that Ikelite housing, or the camera in the housing, which then goes in the sock?

    Seriously, this stuff is complicated.

    Come on it's obvious you do both, the sock protects the housing from getting too wet

    You should see if the maker of your camera offers any underwater housing for it. If not, then you're out of luck, but not completely out of luck. There is several companies that actually makes cameras for underwater like Sealife, Sea & sea, and Bonica. They're pricey, but if you were to buy a canon camera and buy its housing, it probably will run you the same price. Another option is get a sony, olympusm, or canon camera and get the housing for it. Anyways, if you take your camera in a plastic bag, it will leak. I don't know why people are suggesting you to wrap it in a bag, you're just inviting death and destruction for your camera.
    Now a trimix diver!
