I am going to buy a waterproof case for a camera. The underwater case states that it goes up to 10 ft. I am planning on going on a scuba diving trip. If I take the camera and go to 20ft or more, will the case leak or break? What happens when I pass the 10 ft limit?

The waterproof enclosure probably won't break but it might leak. If it is a flexible plastic case rather than a rigid one, it is also possible that the water may press on the case hard enough to push one or more of the buttons on your camera. The deeper you go, the more expensive your case is likely to get. Be prepared for some real sticker shock when you get down past 30 m (100 ft) or so, where the case is likely to exceed the cost of your camera body.
