HOW TO – Underwater video camera / camcorder Housing for less than

Gomiboy writes –

Since getting my first digital camera, and later, my first video camera, I have wanted to push the envelope of what these cameras can do, and where they can go. I have taken them on roller coasters, mounted them on my motorcycle, pulled out the IR filter and taken infrared photos. In short, anything is worth a try (thanks to Instructables for inspiration!).

Putting a camera underwater was another realm to conquer, and having two young children who love the pool gave me a great reason to work on this.

The purpose of this Instructable (my first) is to detail how to build an underwater video camera housing. The end result will be the ability to take underwater video on the cheap – less than $50, significantly less if you have parts on hand.

It took about 3 days to complete this, but most of that was testing for leaks or waiting for the sealant to set. Actual workbench time was less than 2 hours.
