Next time you go on vacation to a great Caribbean destination, you may need one of these great cases that make your small or big digital camera a waterproofed wonder. These waterproof camera cases will let you explore the underwater world and bring home more than cheap T-Shirts from the gift shop.

Canon WP-DC13 Waterproof Case
The Canon WP-DC13 Waterproof Case transforms the Canon SD1000 into a powerful underwater camera at a very competitive price. It allows you to take your camera deep into the waters, up to 40 meters to be exact. There is no need for other more expensive underwater equipment, this simple accessory is all you need. Very easy to operate: Simply open the clamps on the side, place the Canon SD1000 carefully, close it, and then lock it in its place.

Olympus PT-E02 Underwater Housing for Evolt E-330
Before, capturing underwater stills using an SLR required finding a way to look through the camera's viewfinder to frame shots accurately. You don't have to do that anymore: The Olympus E-330 provides a continuous live view of the subject directly on its LCD screen. For deep-sea photographers in particular this is a huge benefit, as it makes framing shots while wearing a diving mask much easier - all they have to do is keep an eye on the LCD! The PT-E02 protects the E-330 in depths of up to 60m of water. It even comes with special ports and it is also available for the various interchangeable lenses in the Olympus E-System, allowing users to benefit fully from the versatility and control of digital SLR photography.

Ikelite 6281.55 Underwater Housing for Nikon Coolpix S550
This is a clear housing that gives you full view of your camera. All controls are accessible via levers and buttons on the housing. It has an easy-to-open latch yet it provides a tight closing when locked, effectively sealing off the housing. After opening, you only need to drop the camera in, lock the housing and you can jump into the water. A flash diffuser comes with the unit to help improve lighting. If light from the built-in flash is insufficient, you can attach an underwater external strobe.

And for the DIY fan, you can create your own housing for a DV camera!
