An underwater camera or diving camera is a nice addition or extension for your diving equipment. The camera allows you to take beautiful underwater photos and videos so you can enjoy your dive again. There are cameras and devices that are suitable for taking pictures underwater. These are useful for snorkeling but you need a special housing in you want to dive deeper. There are also underwater cameras and diving cameras that are specially made to dive deeper. These have permanent housing that can’t leak and these cameras are completely waterproof.
Over the years, smartphone cameras have continually improved. Unfortunately, they are not waterproof. That's where smartphone housing comes into play! With these housings, you can take your mobile phone underwater.
A camera alone is often insufficient for perfect, sharp, and clear photos and videos, especially when diving in dark waters. Additional lighting is essential. A camera light provides a strong beam of light. Here at Lucas Divestore, we offer a range of lights that will be of great help to you. From portable lights to lights that can be mounted with a camera on a tray, we have you covered. Lights are primarily used for filming, and it's important to have a light with a wide beam to avoid visible spotlighting.
Instead of a light, you can also use a flash. A flash illuminates the surroundings briefly. A flash works only if it can communicate with the camera.
It's possible that the lens you have is not sufficient. You may want to get closer to the subject or have a wider field of view. In this case, an additional lens can help! Close-up lenses can capture sharp photos up close, while wide-angle lenses increase the field of view underwater. Additionally, there are coloured filters that allow you to correct certain colours and enhance the overall colour quality.
For a more hands-free experience while diving or snorkeling, it's practical to secure your camera to a sturdy support. Think of a mounting system where you can effortlessly place your camera. When you complement this system with one or two flexible arms for underwater lighting, you have everything you need for a complete setup. Sealife's Flex-Connect can assist you in building the perfect camera setup.
As an addition to your underwater camera, you can use an arm or tripod. This makes it much easier to hold and place the camera underwater. Tip: Extra batteries are nice to have.
