Has anyone done any underwater photography with their Note 3? If so, what case are you using? Links appreciated. I'll be going on vacation in Cancun soon, and would like to get something that's waterproof (submersible) and has been proven to be safe.

Thanks.

A Zip-Loc bag might be sufficient down to one meter. I have not tried it and I don't know how touch will be affected.

Ya that's a bit too risky for my liking. There's bound to be something a bit more safe/secure/tested.

Found this -->http://www.amazon.com/DandyCase-Wate...e+3+waterproof

Wonder if anyone has tried something like this.

Red pepper case is the way to go. I got that one from eBay and is working perfectly. Just search in the accessories area on this forum and you will find the link, they have videos of people doing under water videos and pictures.

OK, I'm about to buy a red pepper case. Can someone please confirm that it indeed works under water. Like the touch screen works and you can use the phone.

I have a bag type waterproof case that is indeed waterproof, but the touchscreen goes crazy under water. Zooms by itself and does weird stuff.

Thanks.
