Hi, I'm looking for some expert advice. I have a 5D mkiii and would like to take some over-under shots (camera lens 50% submerged). I don't dive and wouldn't need much more capability than pushing the shutter for focusing ect, as I would most likely be able to just adjust things the way I wanted then submerge. I have the 14mm 2.8L II so I figure that will be wide enough to capture the wide-angle needed for these types of shots. Since I won't be submerging it very far I only need something that is rated for a few feet or less of water depth. I also would imagine that I would need a decent sized dome (maybe 7-8") to accommodate the 14mm, but I'm just not accustomed to how this works in an over-under scenario.

I have seen some "cases" that seem more like modified ziplock bags, but I'm not too sure if any of them would have a wide enough field of view, or how they would work in an over-under situation. I don't have a very big budget for this, as I don't live near the ocean and these would just be for specialty shots now and then (on vacation or in local streams and lakes). I figure you guys would have the type of experience and expertise to help me figure out what the options are.

Thanks in advance
