I've never even ventured into the world of underwater photography. is it pretty expensive to get the extra stuff required to do it?

Depends on what your looking to due, the cheapest I have seen is still around a $1000 for a basic surf housing for a DSLR all the way up to $8000+ for a full set up with strobes and domes and such. Even putting a compact camera in the water will set you back a good amount.

It depends what you want to do. If you want to take good pics and video you can do so successfully with the Fantasea Housing and a G16 camera (external link).

This housing is specific to this camera and for $799.00 it is a deal for the quality it produces. I have been using this setup for about 4 years and am very satisfied with the results. It has an underwater mode that corrects the color and based off your depth it get magnificent results, the built in flash and diffuser plate for it work well by adjusting flash strength in turn not creating hotspots on your pictures. But, this is all going to be relative to your diving skills.
