Probably not.  Your best bet is to bring the housing to a camera store and see if any fit.  And remember, not only does
it have to fit, but the lens has to line up with the lens window and the internal flash has to line up with the flash
window.

Not to mention that all the controls have to line up as well.

Sony and Olympus both have very reasonably priced housings for specific
models of their digital cameras, which could end up being more economical in
the long run. These are basically low to mid range point/shoot snapshot
cameras similar to the Bonica you mention.
