Need Advice--Protecting my Canon Dslr while kayaking

I plan to go kayaking (for only my second time) soon and need some advice on protecting my DSLR: keeping it dry, keeping it secure in the kayak, and any other advice I may need. I also plan on taking my tripod.Was thinking I could set it up in front of me and secure with a bungee? I will use a UV filter and a lens hood on my 72-300 lens. Any advice would be appreciated.

I am way too nervous to take my dslr out on the kayak. Too scared of tipping out. I bought a point and shoot complete with waterproof casing. I attach it to my life jacket so it is handy to reach and stays with me regardless of whether I manage to stay on the kayak.


I love my Sony A350.

Well, everything I was finding was cases that run about 150 bucks - which is probably out of the budget (especially on what sounds like a one-off trip). I know they have rain jackets for cameras that make them water resistant if not necessarily water proof, but I couldn't find any on Adorama or B&H. I'll do some more poking around and see if I cant find you something.

***edit***
Oh, wait. Here we go: something like this was what I had in mind:

or

About 10-30 bucks and good for keeping heavy rain off camera gear, so it should suit your needs if you don't send it overboard..

Waterproof storage or waterproof case for your camera?

You can get dry-bags very economically, even a hard box like http://www.leisurepro.com/Prod/PL1520.html, wouldn't set you back too far.

There are some overgrown ziplock bags available on Amazon for less than $100,
but the thoughtfully designed waterproof housings are all on the spendy side.

You could get a waterproof camera, such as the GoPro, but the images wouldn't have the same quality as using your DSLR
