Considering underwater photography for your next snorkelling trip or scuba dive? Your experience with photography above ground should guide which model you pick. If you mainly use point and shoot cameras, a compact waterproof camera is a good idea for your dive camera. Of course, if you use a professional camera on dry land, a waterproof DSLR is appropriate. Regardless of the model, your photographic eye is the most important element to creating great underwater images. Once you've picked a model, don't forget to select underwater camera lighting to make sure your photos reflect the beautiful colors in the ocean.
