Yes, they're cheap "creative" lenses that are made in a variety of camera mounts.

You can get some interesting effects with them.

I haven't used them, I just know of people that do. I tend to shoot 'journalistic' style instead of artsy, so I haven't played around much with the weird and wonderful add-ons that lensbaby makes. But some of their stuff does look very interesting.

I am on the road working right now and wont be home for a few more days so I have no way to post any of the photos she has taken with it. Price wise they are fairly cheap.

Never heard of it, but judging from what shows up in a google (for example) this looks like just another digicam in a waterproof housing, good for taking snaps while splashing around in water but not diving. There are a bunch of options like this -- whether it's waterpooof cases for digicams or the cameras specifically designed to be water-resistant like the Olympus Stylus and Pentax Optio lines (and that's not counting proper underwater housing and dive cameras that are good to 40+ m depth).

But that is nothing like what the Lomo and Holga are. It will produce normal photographs, not anything like what the Lomo and Holga produce. They aren't waterproof (at least not that I've heard) but they do create some odd, artsy photos. They key thing about them, however, is that they're chemical cameras, with real film. They aren't digital at all. If you want to take the results digital, you have to scan them... and then you might as well just fake it.
