What is the camera you use for your underwater photography?

Re: Camera

Still a slow to convert over, I use a Sea&Sea MX10 with a YS40 strobe and a macro lens. The shuter is much faster then the digitals out there and for the macro stuff seems to suit me just right.

With the new digitals are great for land, and underwater and can get some short video clips. Just not happy with the shutter speeds on macro work.

Re: Camera

I use the sea and sea 750g. I like it. Shutter speed doesnt seem to be a problem, but the recycling time between shots is a lot longer than I would like.

Re: Camera

I still use a Fuji F10 - nothing special to write home about though.

Re: Camera

I have the SeaLife ReefMaster Mini, and a wide angle lens for it.

I highly recommend it as an entry level digital camera. Very inexpensive, very easy to use, and I get some very good photos with it. Certainly not for a pro or a tech photo kind of person, but for us point-and-shoot so we can show the family what's down there kind of divers, it rules!

Re: Camera

Canon S90, Ikelite Housing, Ikelite AF35 Strobe. Love this setup! It is super small which I love. The camera is about as close as you can get to a DSLR. It takes some time to figure out the settings, etc. so you have to do some reading and trail and error underwater to get it dialed in. I was thrilled that a macro lens and a fisheye lens from a prior underwater setup fit the Ikelite housing. Didn't get a chance to try out the lens on our last trip, I was too busy just trying to figure out the camera. Hope to do a lot of shooting locally this summer.

Re: Camera

i use an older cannon point and shoot with ikelight housing, itorch for video lighting, and ikelight strobe (basic cheap one) for stills. It's pretty simple, but seems to work ok. and less than 1500.00 for all. I've used it for 5 years with no issues, and did so again just today!
