    Newbie question:

    Would like to get an entry level underwater camera. I already have a Sony Cybershot DSC S650. Is an underwater housing available for this camera and if so, would it be worth going that route or should I just start from scratch? I'd like to keep it under $350.

    Thanks in advance.

    Doesn't seem to be any.
    I use a sony and get reasonable shots. Your looks to be better, so if a housing comes out, you should be good to go.

    You can do the Canon A570 and Canon housing (or a few other models, I think) for your budget and have not only completely point and shoot capabilities, but room to grow with full manual controls. These units also do really nice videos.

    Better than waiting for a housing that might never come :D
