I'm with Booewen, I bought a Dicapac for snorkelling and it worked reasonably well (hard to see the LED but then it's only 1.5", so it's the camera's fault!), and I just keep a dry bag on deck for the photo ops. Worked great on my last kayak trip (Gulf Islands and Telegraph Cove areas), and my wife and I regularly handed it back and forth for the obligatory "I was here" shots. Buying a waterproof camera was too expensive and a hardcase was not available.
Oh, I don't have a DSLR it's a Pany FZ35 ultrazoom, but I packed a film SLR around for years. Never got it wet.
