Elaborate camera rig lets you shoot pics 250 feet underwater

The Inon X1 is a pretty awesome-looking aluminum alloy housing for a Panasonic Lumix GF1, allowing to sink to depths of up to 250 feet to capture whatever sea life you find down there.

The rig also comes with a pair of lights, allowing you to illuminate your photos, and a pair of grips so you don't lose your expensive toy to the watery deep. And it's expensive: the housing itself is $2,200, with each grip adding an additional $115. But hey, if you've got a Lumix GF1 and want to use it underwater, this might be your only option.
