It's a water housing for the Powershot I have. One thing that's really irritating is the lag time between the time the shutter button is pressed and the shutter actually opening. I was in the water for 2 hours and took 150 pictures and out of them all, there were only 5 that were usable. One thing for sure is you take a beating doing this. Sandys has the notoriety of having the highest rate of neck injuries in the country. I pretty much grew up in the water at this beach so it was fun to get back in the water there. If you do visit Hawaii and go in the water here, be very careful.

Thanks all for the incredible votes and the great comments.

Here are a couple of outtakes:
