Funny you mention this, as I am planning a snorkeling trip in mexico, I have been researching commercially
available underwater camera solutions.

I have found, at REI and some on eBay, what are basically plastic bags with a waterproof seal that you can shoot through.
I'm planning on using my digital still camera and my mini dv camera, and there are bags sized to accomodate these.

If you are talking about using a film camera underwater, smaller ones might fit in these bags.

I'm curious if it is film you want to shoot underwater, how do you use a light meter?
another waterproof bag or enclosure?

And whoever said depth matters is correct,
I have seen a lot of stuff that they say is rated to 10 feet, but nothing rated for deeper.

Keep us posted on what you find!
