Does anyone know of an underwater casing for the XL1?

Hi Stuart, if you're talking of water depths of up to 10 meters then give "ewa-marine" a try. It's a german campany that has water housings for virtually every camera. They sell in the US as well. Over here the price tag is a hefty 1200 german marks (sorry, don't know the current exchange rate).

The Ewa housing for the XL1 is about $900 (!). Some otehrs are jumping in, but the only one that is field tested, to my knowledge is the Ewa.
I am faciing the same trouble, and have decided to use a Sony TRV in an Ewa bag (about $250 street) underwater in an upcoming shoot in the Central Pacific. The change in "venue" to UW will hopefully mask the differences between the Sony and the Canon...

Forget about EWA zip;ock bags. Check out gates or Aquavideo if you're serious. Good luck. Morgan
