Underwater Cameras – How to Choose the Right One

Underwater photography can be an exciting adventure. Choosing your underwater camera is the first step. But how do you pick from the dozens of choices out there? Here are some pointers to help you choose a camera for underwater photography.

Buy a camera and housing separate or together?

I recommend you buy a camera that will perform well underwater and above water. Check the reviews of the camera on dpreview, or on another camera review site. All cameras will need a plastic case called a waterproof housing, which will keep your camera waterproof up to at least 100ft. Some companies, like Sea & Sea and Sealife, sell housings and cameras as one package. If you are considering one of these, make sure you know what the actual brand of the camera is, and check the reviews on it. If you can’t find out who actually makes the camera, that’s not … Read More

Perhaps you’ve been a photographer for as long as you can remember, and been messing around in the darkroom almost as long as that. You know how to turn your photos into the sort of prints that you friends want gracing their walls.

But even you could not turn your back on the digital camera revolution. You have always had a bit of a moral dilemma because you know that your dark room chemicals are not the kinds of substances you want in the water supply, and you also know that, in spite of the snob appeal of the 35mm camera, your digital camera just as capable and much more fun. And you’ve learned the magic of digital camera photograph editing software, which lets you duplicate all the darkroom effects you took years to master, in less than an afternoon.

Or perhaps you have not made the leap from 35mm … Read More

Professional HD Video Camera – What Should You Buy?

A professional HD video camera is one of the must-haves of avid filmmakers. These video cameras are the hottest item when it comes to the film-making or documentation industry. There are so many high definition camcorders in the market that are available but only a few are noteworthy. These are the:

– Canon XH-A1 HDV Camcorder, – Sony HDR-FX7 Camcorder, – JVC GYHD110U MiniDV Camcorder, and; – Panasonic AG-HVX200.

The Canon XH-A1 HDV Camcorder

This miniature version of the Canon XL H1 performs like its big brother, the Canon XLH1DV. It has a low light performance which is a good feature for a professional HD video camera.

Customers are somewhat skeptical with the 30F and 24F frame rates too but some are finding it easy to adjust to. It also has a bad eyecup design … Read More
