Digital Camera: Underwater cameras for diving

Memories are created almost anywhere. And when I say everywhere, I mean that memories are even created underwater - So the creation of underwater digital camera.

An underwater digital camera is not just used to catch water memories, and some professional marine photographers also use water digital cameras in their business. Even marine biologists and scientists use water digital cameras to capture marine life and thus be able to study the life and properties of marine life. But I think it's safe to assume that you, my reader, are neither a marine scientist or a professional photographer. Like me, you're just some photo junkie who want to catch the water moments and just cannot figure out how without ruining your camera.

Please listen to me when I say that even waterproof cameras can not withstand underwater photography. Being waterproof is to resist water in certain levels, submerging under water to get it perfect image is like throwing it out the window expecting a pick-up truck passed by and run over it.

Now if you really are serious about using an underwater digital camera to capture those wacky and funny moments of the water, I suggest that you buy specialty cameras.

There are rarely underwater digital cameras, as cameras are electronic and can not withstand water and water pressure. The closest electronics has ever got to producing underwater digital cameras are producing underwater casings for digital cameras. These casing will turn your conventional digital camera with an underwater digital camera.

If you are shooting with your underwater digital camera, write a few things to help you make the best images underwater.

Remember that when you longer under water, light scatter. This means that your underwater digital camera will produce images darker than the pictures you took while on land - it is because of the light diffusion the red spectrum seems darker. To avoid this, use white balance come up with natural colors. Also pictures taken during the water comes up larger than pictures taken on land with the same zoom effect. Be sure to check your underwater digital camera's viewfinder to check the right picture angle and size you want.

An underwater digital camera with built-in flash will produce marine show phenomenon. It is a phenomenon where your photos come out as blurry and with white particles floating above it, to avoid this phenomenon it is advisable to use external flash for your underwater digital camera.

Before using your underwater digital camera, submerge the camera in the water first for several seconds and then check if there is leaks in the case. Make sure that no grain of sand or a piece of hair stuck in between the seal to ensure that water will not penetrate the case and thus wet your camera in the process. It is also advisable to put silica gel or two inside the case of your underwater digital camera as long as they do not interfere with camera functions. (Silica gel will keep moisture from forming inside your camera case.)

Most underwater digital cameras come with optional lenses. Do not be afraid to add these lenses to your underwater digital camera kit. Macro lenses will help you capture small things without getting too close and startling your subject.

Remember always to wash off salt when you've used it in saltwater. If salts are not washed out, over time they will crystallize; act as sands and cause leaks for your camera case. In cases where sand seem to get into the case, they are better washed off with streams of water.

Check out Sony, Nikon and Canon's website for available underwater cases for your digital camera.
