Underwater Camera Tip

Underwater cameras are amazing tools for capturing the beautiful and diverse marine life existing beneath the sea. Here are some quick underwater lighting tips:

During the day most underwater cameras can operate on natural light until about 100 feet in most water conditions.

To even further compensate for low-light conditions that naturally occur as divers travel below the water's surface, you can adjust the cameras shutter speed and aperture before entering the water, ensuring vivid images without worry of underexposure.

While an on-camera flash helps illuminate objects below the surface, photos are better with external flash units, which better illuminates the vivid colors of the underwater environment.
