Underwater Photography with a Compact Camera

Today I’ll continue along on the underwater photography kick. Tony Wu is a professional photographer, who also keeps a blog which I enjoy reading.

The other day I was digging through archives and came across this article. Now, as a professional photographer, Tony takes massive amounts of expensive equipment underwater with him. In this post, he describes his experience going back to a simple point-and-shoot camera.

I found his description educational and encouraging—especially if you look at some of the pictures he manages to get on a relatively cheap camera.

You should particularly take note of his mention of a camera’s underwater mode. He also discusses the different approach to using a compact camera. How you have to view your subject differently.

I think it’s an interesting read both for amateurs already using point-and-shoot cameras as well as those who have moved on to SLRs.

    Can you recommend a particular underwater camera? I was reading a review of a Fuji with housing in last months Dive Magazine. That’s a brand I’ve always avoided but it was getting very good reviews.

    Compact camera is really great! So many things to be done due to it! Modern technological achievement!

    Point-and-shoots are by far the best selling type of separate camera, as distinct from camera phones. They are popular with people who don’t consider themselves photographers but want an easy to use camera for vacations, parties, reunions and other events.

    I was just looking for this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why
    throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site
    when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
