Taking pictures and video while diving has become increasingly popular since the advent of digital cameras. But the camera market has also become more and more complex with numerous pitfalls for would be underwater photographers. In this blog I'm going to clarify a number of the factors that make some cameras better for underwater photography than others.
I’ve not addressed one of the big questions in underwater photography yet. Which are better strobes or video lights? In this blog I am going to explain how using these different light sources impacts on your underwater photography and look at when you would use one or the other. I’ll also try and give some advice on how to set your camera when using a constant light source rather than a flash.
Just a short blog for underwater photographers. Did you know that if you are using a strobe on manual power with a fibre optic cable for triggering your camera flash will trigger the strobe on any setting. This means you can set your flash to manual on the lowest power available, which will save you considerable camera battery power if you haven't already been doing it.
