What are the types of underwater cameras?

Underwater Photography Gaining as a Dive Hobby

Underwater photography used to be the domain of professionals. Now it's a favorite hobby for many divers. Divers have a few choices in camera type:

  • There are disposable underwater cameras that get the job done, if you want to show friends and family what you did on vacation. Just point and shoot.
  • A second choice is housing a land camera. Some divers prefer this method for the wider choice of cameras and lenses. But the housing can be awkward to handle.
  • The popular choice is the amphibious camera. There are several brand-name digital cameras -- Nikonos, Sea & Sea and SeaLife. Canon and Olympus also get wet with their versions of underwater cameras.
