Digital Cameras under water 101 For landlubbers

First came the camera. Then there was the underwater camera. After that came the Digital Camera – and now we have underwater digital cameras. underwater digital cameras are ideal for capturing the beauty of the underwater world (or the bottom of the pool if you have that special artistic eye!). They are used by scientists and divers. Digital cameras come in many well-known brands such as Kodak, Canon, Nikon, Sony and Olympus. Surprisingly, the cheapest brands cost less than $ 200, but rather steep prices for higher quality cameras.

Some of the advantages digital cameras under water include:

– Can connect to a TV.

– The best produce high resolution images

– They never run out of film (because do not use film!)

– Have best depth of field (up to 4 times greater than that of film cameras)

– They feature strobe shutter speeds as fast as 1/800th of a second, much faster than even the best film cameras

– Applications include sea mode, the mode of the earth, and how external flash
