underwater camcorder housing

Post by kg9491 » Thu Jun 07, 2007 3:27 am

I need some underwater camcorder housing for some upcoming filming this summer. I have a Sony Handycam right now. I don't know the model or if it's relevant. Anyone know where i can get some or how I can make some? I realize making underwater housing would be taking a risk but I'm willing to do so.

Flying is simple. You just throw yourself at the ground and miss.

I wouldn't trust a plastic bag underwater. That's asking for a disaster. Try making a metal box with a glass or plexiglass side, but there should be as minimal air inside the casing as possible, otherwise you're going to have a heck of a time keeping it submerged!
