A portrait I could never have taken with my K10D

I'm having a lot of fun with my waterproof Olympus μ1030SW. Has any one any experience with underwater equipment for Pentax dSLRs?

When dirty, muddy, murky, dusty, steamy and wet conditions dominate, I let my trusty Pentax Wpi do the job!

Waterproof housings for SLRs cost on the order or $2K.

Best alternative I know of used to be a Fuji F30 (best low-light P&S) w/ the $150 Fuji housing which is pretty well built...

Aquapak make semi-flexible housings for mch leshan that... 120$ usually. I'll be getting one in the near future, I will post a review of it here.

Their housings are for surface diving (15 feet, I think) but for many users it's enough.

Absolutely. If I ever find myself more than 15 ft underwater I'll prefer to have a prayer book with me.
