All of the recent discussion about waterproof cameras got me thinking. As a result, I spent some time over the holiday season developing ideas of how to construct a durable, waterproof housing for my newly acquired IS 2S. My first thought was to find the right size container/box to complement the camera. So, it was off to MEC in hope of finding something that would work. As it was, they had a great selection of watertight boxes to choose from, but the ones that I saw from Pelican were either too big and bulky or too small for the IS 2S. Finally, I came across a clear, medium-sized lexan box from GSI Outdoors that appeared to be a perfect fit and, at $17.50, it was a bargain. It also came with a handy slot on either side that would allow me to attach a tie down to. A piece of remnant vinyl cupboard/drawer liner makes for a soft base and would prevent the camera from moving around. All that was required was a bit of trimming to get it to lay perfectly in the bottom of the box. I used some pick-and-pluck foam from a Pelican 1200 and modified it to fit around the camera. I’ve since glued a few more strategically placed pieces of foam to make it even more snug. The flat piece of foam that was used for the lid was acquired from bottom of the Pelican and then cut to fit. I attached it to the underside of the lid with two strips of double-sided adhesive tape. The end result is a portable and low profile yet extremely durable, waterproof camera housing which should work for all P&S cameras similar in size to the IS 2S. The fit is extremely snug and the camera doesn’t budge at all. In fact, I can tip the box over on its side120 degrees and it continues to stay firmly planted. A scrap piece of mini cell foam shaped to conform to the peak of the deck will act as a platform for the box. I estimate the total cost of materials to be in the $20-$25 range and required very little effort to put together. I’ll be sure to update this thread once I figure out the best method to lash everything to the deck rigging .
