    Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone has found a suitable water bag or housing for the RX1, that isn't the $2500 Rec Sea housing? I can find all sorts of bags for the RX100, and two solid housing systems for the RX100, but absolutely NOTHING for the RX1.

    It isn't so much that I want to dive down and shoot with the RX1, but if I'm going kayaking or canoeing, or even rafting down a river, Id love to bring the RX1 with me. Any help would be wonderful!

    A DiCAPac case might work well for your purposes. The DiCAPac case I have (for my GF1 with its 20/1.7 lens) would be too small for the lens on the RX1, but you could inquire with DiCAPac about which case would best fit the RX1. I've used my DiCAPac case for snorkeling, surfing, and boating, and it works well enough. Plus, the cases are inexpensive; I think the case for the GF1 cost around $50. Expect some deterioration in IQ and possible difficulty with focusing.

    Yup, dicapac is the way to go.
