Underwater housings for 360 cameras can be expensive and/or hard to find.  However, reader Kimmo Kiiveri shared this ultra low cost DIY underwater housing for 360 cameras, and his housing is immune from refraction.

Kimmo was looking for an underwater housing and it occurred to him to use a plastic water bottle. “I thought that the bottle keeps the water inside so why not the other way round.”  And that’s exactly what he did — check it out!

Kimmo added an O-Ring to improve watertightness.  Here are a couple of videos shot with his DIY underwater housing and his LG 360 Cam:
