Anything like the ewa marine tv bags out  there that are not $2,000? Just doesnt seem like it should be $2k for a bag. Its for shoots on the water ie fishing etc. Not really diving but being able to submerge briefly and to shoot in the bag, throw in canoe etc.

Given the price of the bags for smaller cameras, $2000 seems about right for a 2/3" broadcast camera. I'm not sure I'd want to put an expensive camera & lens into a cheap bag and risk a leak. The cheaper method may be to use a smaller camera for these shots and use a cheaper bag.

I know. But every once in a while you run into that confident guy who wraps his rig in a garbage bag. Was hoping there was a secret im missing....Now ill be ticked when i snag my $2000 bag on something....This is looking a lot like the gateway to the rolling shutter I think.
