Underwater Housing Made from Fish Tank
By Joseph Tepper, September 4, 2013 @ 09:00 AM (EST)

Well this is a new one: Some intrepid photographers are making underwater housings from their used fish tanks. That’s right—fish tanks.

By sealing a camera in a small fish tank and using a remote shutter cable you too can have your very own makeshift shallow-water camera. Unfortunately, you can’t really see the results on the LCD screen as it is lowered in the water.

Feeling particularly brave? Check out full instructions and results from this experiment on Digital Camera World.
