Underwater Photo & Video
Photo and Video
Taking pictures underwater requires specialized underwater photo and video equipment.
Modern underwater cameras are easy to use and extremely reliable. Many are waterproof even outside of the housing down to depths of more than 30 feet. If you add waterproof housing, you can easily reach recreational diving depth limits.
We recommend several underwater cameras that are easy to use for beginner and intermediate photographers. The Sealife DC1400 is a reasonably priced underwater digital camera. This choice is one of the most user-friendly cameras on the market today. The big piano buttons on the underwater housing make finding and using the button you need extremely easy, even while wearing gloves. The DC1400 is also a camera that will grow with your skill level. Furthermore, you can add the Digital Pro Flash and the Fisheye Wide Angle lens for greater artistic control.
For the more experienced photographer, looking to shoot in RAW and looking for a little more versatility in a camera, take a look at the popular Canon Powershot G16 bundle or the more professional Sony Cyber-shot RX100 kit which comes with the Fantasea underwater housing, plus wide angle lens and macro wet lens adapter ports. Capture everything from tiny blennies and turtles, to your dive buddy with this entire underwater kit.
Does your buddy like barrel rolls? Is that remora getting a little too friendly? The best way to capture moments like these is with video. GoPro Hero 4 cameras can shoot video up to 4K resolution, and are waterproof to 130 feet. The options for mounting this underwater video camera are limitless. Head mount, wrist mount, pole mount, speargun mounts, chest mounts... nbsp;the list goes on.
Still unsure about taking a camera underwater? Take a look at the Sealife Reefmaster Mini. This underwater camera is designed for use in and out the water. The digital camera is incorporated into the underwater housing. No o-ring to maintain or latches to worry about, all the way down to 200 feet.
