Looking at taking under water photo's of a max of a couple of meters with my pentax k-m anything on the market that will water proof at a relative low cost. Or would I get better results just buying an Optio W90 ?

It's probably cheaper to get an Optio W90 certainly.

Like for so many accessories, Pentax underwater housings are thin on the ground.

Or, depending on how often you do it, you may be better hiring underwater equipement.

EWA Marine do SLR housings, there are similar ones that are cheaper too. I cant remember the brand though.

However you would probably be cheaper with a W90.

or maybe this?

But an Optio W90 is probably still cheaper. It depends on how often you intend to use it.

Thanks all.

May just go the Optio route as it is safer and better value for the money.

The W90 is good down to 6 metres for up to 120 minutes - fine for beach, swimming, snorkling. No good for serious diving, but that's a different issue.
Best regards, John

I saw this mentioned on the other forum.
It looks impressive and isn't that expensive. Maybe worth considering?
