    Can someone recommend a waterproof case/housing for a Sony a37 for about $100 or less? I have a 18-55 lens. Sould be good to a depth of 30 feet. I have only been able to find waterproof bags but I would prefer a plastic case. I am in Maui and would like to try snuba or scuba diving. Would greatly appreciate any help.

    Should I use a cheap waterproof P&S instead?

    Underwater housings that aren't glorified plastic bags tend to be very expensive. For $100 the plastic bag types are your only alternative.

    A cheap waterproof point and shoot will allow you to take pictures underwater but the images are going to be mediocre at best. The Fujifilm XP170 was recently given a less than great review by this website Fujifilm FinePix XP170 Review and, while the Fuji is not that cheap (about $200 online), it's about the best underwater camera you'll find for that price and under. Probably the best waterproof point and shoot around is the Olympus TG-2, but you'll pay over $350 for it.
