Search the watersports websites and these usually start around the £15+ range, so looks really cheap.

Downside is that free delivery option takes 7-10 days, so you'll have to wait for your bargain, and courier options are ridiculously expensive.

Is this the one ?

If so, it's showing as £4.13 + vat = £4.85

Good price though

If you're going to get one of these cases get the one with the solid zoom bit. The one which folds in doesn't take pictures half as good as the solid one.

To my eyes it looks just like a waterproof bag - not camera shaped at all. I bought one identical to this for 99 pence from B&M Stores. These can be used to put money, watches, phones atc when going to the beach or around the pool. ;-)

easy to do, i think expire and edit should be move more apart ! Have done it myself before today !

These might say "waterproof" but I certainly wouldn't trust them underwater. For keeping splashes and sand off the camera they're fine.

I have used cheap ( [Stupid new site cut off everything else I'd written - it keeps doing this which is why I hardly ever bother to comment on deals anymore.]

I've used one of these bags on two holidays now, both snorkelling in the red sea. They are waterproof, I probably spent around 10 hours in the sea with one of these with my camera in, no water got through once. 3 lock system on the end of the bag.

Like I said earlier though, try and get the case with the solid extension on the front rather than the flimsy one, picture quality is much better on the solid one.

Is that with the same seal as these? The underwater bags I've used have hard plastic / thumbscrew arrangement to lock the zip seal end tight.
Looking at the fastening in the zoomed pictures of the product pages I found they didn't look so secure and they made no claims on the underwater depth they can be used at.

Some of the similar bags on the site do say the underwater depth they are rated for use but are more expensive at around £14

I guess any of them that say they're for underwater use would be OK in shallow water...

As you say the bags with hard lens extensions like this one are best for zoom cameras (mine was around £10 delivered on eBay). You need to find a good fit if you don't want your lens to jam if the camera moves around in the bag (although with the bags I've used the plastic is 'rubbery' so the camera can't move too easily).
